As we all know, Sundays are a day of rest and football — two things that have been made exponentially easier with a little invention known as “NFL Redzone.”

So when the channel went on the fritz earlier today (Sunday), you can understand why fans went a little crazy. Let’s take a look at some of the social media reactions to this unthinkable catastrophe. It is safe to say that football fans were none too happy with the transaction.

“My NFL Redzone just stopped and I forgot how to breathe,” an NFL fan writes. This is a sentiment shared by many football fans.

“NFL Redzone” is for those of us who simply cannot decide which Sunday afternoon football game we want to watch. The sports channel is operated by the NFL Network and became the hottest thing in football when it came into existence in 2009. In a nutshell, the channel allows fans to keep track of every game going on a particular Sunday.
