Chiefs and Royals fans, I urge you to take a short moment to support this petition to remove the infamous shuttlecocks from this great city we call home.  For those of you that do not know, these shuttlecocks are cursed.

Dubbed as "The Curse of the Shuttlecocks", our two beloved sports teams have yet to win a playoff game since they were placed on the lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum in 1994. However, in the 10 years before that, the Royals had 7 winning seasons and a World Series Championship. in the the 3 years before their placement on Kansas City soil, the Chiefs had won 3 playoff games. Since then, the Chiefs haven't won a single playoff game despite several good seasons, and the Royals have only had 2 winning seasons only to fall apart before the post season.

How much longer are you willing to take the depression that follows each year of sports failures? How long will you go witnessing 4 touchdown leads torn apart, and 5 of the best players injured despite relatively healthy seasons. I know Dwayne Bowe wants to see them gone, as he told the Kansas City Star "They need to take'em down then, man." in 2008. He even offered to get some of his friends from miami to do it. 

I ask you again, one fan to another, to please sign this petition if you want to bring back the winning culture in Kansas City. Side with me, Dwayne Bowe, and several other Chiefs/Royals fans to remove the shuttlecocks, and you can help save our city.

To:
Nelson-Atkins Art Museum
Christopher Leitch
Sly James, Mayor of Kansas City
Remove the shuttlecocks.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
