When something happens once, it can be seen as creative or entertaining. When it happens again, it is far less humorous. That is the case when a Dallas Cowboys fan from the state of Georgia started a petition to President Obama to force change of their favorite team. It has also happened with the Auburn Tigers when some fans asked Obama to fire Gene Chizik.
They got their wish, although it had absolutely nothing to do with the foolish petition.
Not to the best of my knowledge, at least.
Regardless, it did not stop this fan from Georgia in starting a petition to the White House asking to immediately remove Jerry Jones as the Cowboys’ owner and general manager.
The petition reads: “We, the Citizens of the Great State of Texas, and Dallas Cowboys fans worldwide, have been oppressed by an over controlling, delusional, oppressive dictator for way too long. Request the Executive Branch’s immediate assistance in removal of owner and GM, Jerry Jones. His incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress.”
Really? This is just another case of sports fans who take their teams and themselves way too seriously. This could be intended at least partially for humor, but it isn’t really all that funny. Especially since it was already done at Auburn.
Yet that has not stopped others from jumping on board. As of the time of this article, the petition had already picked up about 1,000 of the 25,000 signatures necessary to take it seriously.
And I use the word seriously as lightly as possible.
I see nothing serious in this matter. Don’t we have more pressing issues?
