Mike Dean has been asked to be taken off the Premier league rota this week due to him and his family receiving death threats, he may have made a few bad decisions that I don't agree with but this is too far

Surely he would have been 'rested' anyway after two weeks of wrong decisions on red cards.
Pretty poor at his level and with VAR assistance.

The way it is being used at present in this country, "VAR assistance" comes close to being a contradiction in terms.

Absolutely disgusting. Sending Mike and his family lots of love and best wishes.

I have to agree with you bmb, there is no place for things like this in any sport.
Sadly, in recent times we have heard of the threats sent to Michael and Lucy Oliver after Michael's decision in the Champions League and now we have this ridiculous state of affairs which are a sad reflection on the society in which we live.
I also wish Mike and his family all the best and thank him for his long contribution to football throughout his career.
Referee's decision used to be final!

Remember when Howard Webb's family were attacked during Euro 2008 by Polish fans, and that was when Social Media was very much in the early stages.

People in this country have no morals or any self-discipline, and they are able to hide behind fake profiles and online trolls, as they are too cowardly to speak in public or debate properly. I am all for free speech, but one must remember that all actions have consequences. And people ought to be held accountable for what they say.
Social media giants need to be held accountable for this too!

(Untll then, nothing will change)

It is really easy to fix, make it mandatory to provide a scan of passport, driving license, or other official ID when registering for a social media site.  Or it they are children and don't have such ID, a parent has to provide theirs.  Of course the issue is it needs to be a global effort otherwise people will just put a VPN on and sign up in a country that doesn't have such requirements.  Plus people will complain it is an erosion of their civil liberties.

That said, other countries police it much better than most Western countries.  Posting anything even vaguely controversial on social media in China, assuming you can bypass the restrictions, isn't likely to be beneficial to your freedom or even potentially health.  Even leaving a dodgy hotel review can land you in prison in the middle east.
