Spongebobs Bubble Bowl "Sweet Victory" instead of Maroon5 at 2019 Halftime show

We need the world to realize how much Stephen Hillenburg has been a huge part of our childhoods by bringing spongebob to life and creating such fun and long-lasting memories that all of us can look back on. Especially the "Bubble Bowl." We have to agree that at least once in our lives we have played that scene on youtube and watched it over and over again because of the pure awesomeness and joy it brings us, am i right? It is only fair that we, Goofy Goobers, Jellyfishers, Anchovies, Hash Slinging Slashers, and Bubble Blowing Babies alike, come together in this time of morn and show our gratitude to Hillenburg by achieving the impossible... by allowing David Glen Eisley and Bob Kulick to perform "Sweet Victory" at the 2019 Halftime show in memory of Hillenburg instead of Maroon5. If you truly love what he has done for this world and our childhoods, then you'll sign this petition. Thank you, and God bless

#NoKaepernickNoNFL - Boycott NFL Games If Colin Kaepernick Doesn't Play This Season

Note: This petition is STILL ongoing... On August 26, 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during the National Anthem before the 3rd preseason game of the upcoming 2016 NFL season. Right after the game, he told NFL Media why he sat during the anthem, prompting his now-famous statement: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." Never before, since the great Muhammad Ali's refusal to serve in Vietnam in 1967, has an athlete taken such a direct stance highlighting the injustices of people of color -- and just like Ali, the reaction to Kaepernick's stance has been met with passionate responses, often times divided by the color line. Since that statement, Kaepernick "upgraded" his protest to a knee, announced a plan to donate $1 million to the charities that focused on racial issues (which he followed through), had great support from some of his teammates, NFL colleagues, athletes from all sports levels (starting from junior high), and fans by taking a knee during anthems. Best of all, Kaepernick's protest made the conversation about "racial/police brutality" front-page for the large part of the NFL season, a feat never done before in its history. Because he needed to start, Kaepernick also restructured his contract during the 2016 season, taking away the final 4 years and reworking it into a 2-year deal (with a 1-year player option) -- allowing him to leave after the season if he chooses, which he did. Since then, no one has offered Colin Kaepernick, a Super Bowl QB just a few years ago, a NFL job despite cries from NFL Players and analysts, both black and white. He also has a better Total Quarterback Rating (QBR) than half the backup quarterbacks signed right now. This shows that the NFL Owners are not willing to bring Kaepernick into their team because -- according to many fans -- he is a "distraction". A man who protested because of injustices towards people of color is pretty much blackballed in a league that is 70% Black. If you are appalled by this, then show your power by boycotting the NFL until Kaepernick gets signed to a team. This means to not watch any games, no social media comments about your favorite team before/during/after the games, don't attend the stadiums, and don't buy any merchandise which represents the league or your favorite team. We understand the NFL is very important to you. We also understand the purpose of Colin Kaepernick's protest is FAR more important than any games you will ever watch. Simply put, if things stay the same for the way America -- where "all men are created equal" -- treats people of color, then your loved ones, friends, and children will eventually be affected as well. Finally, this situation really shines a light on how much the NFL really cares about its Black athletes. It's pretty much: Play for us, entertain us, make us money, and shut up. Here's a video of someone explaining the true meaning of the National Anthem: Click here --------------------- Since we reached our initial goal of 100,000 signatures, here's a pic of the 32 NFL Owners we already mailed.  Our new goal is 1 MILLION signatures by the start of the NFL Regular Season.

Pete Morelli should be banned from refereeing Philadelphia Eagles games

NFL Referee Pete Morelli has a clear and statistically obvious bias against the Philadelphia Eagles. Over the last four games that he has officiated that the Eagles were playing in, the Eagles were flagged a total of 40 times for 396 yards, while the Eagles opponent in those games were flagged a mere 8 times for 74 yards. This is unacceptable and puts the Philadelphia Eagles at a disadvantage. Preventing Morelli from refereeing Eagles games will result in a more trustworthy and honest NFL. This will benefit the entire league and keep all claims of conspiracy to a normal level.

Tell NFL not to take away players rights to free speech and expression

Dear NFL Commissioner: The National Anthem is supposedly symbolic of the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Are the NFL players not citizens of the "land of the free"?  Are the NFL players not "brave" as they have come together to protest the disproportionate abuse and deaths of African-Americans at the hands of police who go on to live their lives without impunity?  To ban players from using their visibility to inspire conversation about police brutality against anyone, but specifically, African-Americans, supports the idea that African-American lives have no value.  The protest is not an attempt to disrespect or dishonor our country or our armed forces especially since so many African-Americans have fought and died for this country.  The protest is not an attempt to disrespect honorable police.  The protest seeks to shed light on and bring to justice those entrusted with the badge but use it, without retribution, to bully, torture, beat, rape, and kill.  Not all NFL fans agree with forcing players to stand.  Support the players' right to free expression and demonstrate leadership in the face of adversity instead of siding with those who seek to silence the oppressed. Come up with a compromise and not an ultimatum.

Petition to Cancel Lady Gaga from 2017 NFL Halftime Show

Make your voice heard! The NFL has become a leftist propaganda machine, and we are not buying it anymore! From Bob Costa's gun control propaganda, to supporting Beyonce's black supremacy agenda at the 2016 Superbowl, and Kaepernick's failing knees, the NFL has alienated millions of ordinary everyday Americans. Yet they still can't seem to get the message for why their ratings have tanked. They blame it on everyone and everything, except for where the blame clearly lies..with themselves! Tell them loud and clear...WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE! We will refuse to participate in celebrating with someone who expresses hate for those who disagree with her, or the hate she expresses for President-Elect Trump. If they do not change the propaganda halftime show with angry leftist agitator Lady Gaga, we will continue to boycott the NFL, including their 2017 Superbowl, and related sponsors.

Force a refund for traveling Vikings fans that were forced to leave Philly early.

During Sunday's NFC Championship and a possible once in a lifetime experience most traveling Vikings fans were subjected to unprovoked death threats, thrown objects, physical alercations and extreme levels of intimidation and violence.The Philly police and security did nothing in 99% of the instances to deescalate the violence and assaults that occurred. I have evidence on camera of the police disrespecting our tailgating group on motorcycles.Just myself personally I had bottles thrown at my head that struck our vehicle,witnessed a CHILD get blasted by a beer, and had my hands cut from glass.That doesn't even include what happened in the stands and restroom. The NFL and Eagles organization have a code of conduct and I think they should held accountable to their own standards. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE AND SIGN PLEASE!! THANK YOU,  Cody Jones

Get Andrew WK to perform at Super Bowl LIII

Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier, better known by his stagename Andrew W.K., is the undisputed king of partying. As some of you may know, when it's time to party he will party hard. And that's exactly what the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show (presented by Pepsi) needs right now, more than ever. After 2018's adequate, but somewhat lackluster and ultimately forgettable halftime performance by self-proclaimed man of the woods/dancing dad Justin Timberlake, I feel it's time to head in a new direction. It's time to throw off the shackles of enormous pop stars performing in between halves of a game where very large men hit each other very hard and get to the heart of things. It's time for a halftime performer who is concerned with only one thing: Partying. Because what is the Super Bowl if not one enormous party? And it's not as though Andrew WK doesn't have stadium bangers. Beyond everybody's favorite "Party Hard," let's talk about "We Party (You Shout)" or "It's Time To Party". Can you imagine the entirety of Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta singing "Music Is Worth Living For"? Talk about a halftime show moment for the ages. Did you know that in 2009 Andrew WK released an album of improvisation jazz piano? So it's not like the dude doesn't have range. One more musical point I feel needs to be made about Andrew WK: I think his music would lend itself to some great guest appearances on the halftime stage. Guest stars are one of my favorite parts of the halftime shows of the past. Remember when James Brown came out with the Blues Brothers? Remember when Missy Elliott stole the show during Katy Perry's performance? That kind of excitement has been missing in the last couple of years with straight-ahead performances from Timberlake and Lady Gaga (maybe straight-ahead is the wrong term for Gaga jumping off a roof, but I think the point still stands). We need to kick halftime up a few notches again. A kid staring at his phone cannot be the highlight of 2019's halftime show.  Imagine it: Andrew WK kicks into "Party Hard;" Magnificent towers of flames shoot from the stage. He's dressed in all white. His band is dressed in all white. The crowd surrounding the stage is dressed in all white. The first chorus ends, and then "Ladies and gentlemen, SLASH!" An explosion. Rising from the floor and up 30-feet in the are (Donna Summer style) stands Slash on a platform. In all black. Top hat, sunglasses, leather pants, cigarette dangling nonchalantly from his lips as he effortlessly shreds a face-melting solo. That's what's missing from the halftime show of my dreams. That's what America needs right now. Beyond music, Andrew WK has proven to be a kind of zen master when it comes to living your life to the fullest. He's taught people to seize the day in a way not so dissimilar from John Keating in Dead Poet's Society. He even saved a life.   I feel like that kind of commitment deserves to be recognized on the biggest stage possible. And for that reason, I'd like to see Andrew WK on the Super Bowl Halftime stage in 2019. I believe with your help, we can make it a reality. But regardless of what happens, don't ever stop partying.

Keep the Chargers Brand in San Diego and force Dean Spanos to change team name.

The San Diego Chargers has been a part of America's Finest City for 56 years. After the Spanos Family has burned bridge after bridge - between his business and the city, the fans, his coaches, his players, or his staff, he finally has decided to leave town and move to LA. Good riddance. It is agreed by San Diegans and Charger fans that Spanos is no longer welcome in San Diego, however, the San Diego Chargers have a very rich history of records and intellectual property that belong to the city. The Chargers brand belongs in San Diego, just like the Browns belong in Cleveland. Dean Spanos should be free to move his team and his business to LA, but he should NOT be allowed to take our history and all the goes along with being a Charger and Fan with him. The Chargers name should stay and belong to San Diego should we ever form another team and Dean Spanos should be forced to find a new team name in LA. For Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleveland_Browns_relocation_controversy

Remove Bill Vinovich from the NFC Championship game

How is it possible that Bill Vinovich and crew have been assigned to the NFC Championship game? It's no secret that the Rams strangely have a tough time when he is the head officiator, going 0-8 with him at the helm, with a handful of questionable calls in most games. In his time as head ref, he has never ONCE assessed the Rams' opposition more penalty yards. This includes the most recent game between the two teams fighting for the Superbowl that occurred on November 4, 2018. The highlight of that game's officiating was a missed call when the Rams faked a field goal tied 14-14 and Johnny Hekker clearly reached the ball over the first down marker before going down or being out of bounds. It was painly obvious to everyone watching the game, except for the officials. What makes it worse is that when challenged by head coach Sean Mcvay, Vinovich found "no conclusive evidence" to overturn the call.  Fact sheet:- The Rams are are 0-8 with Vinovitch as their head referee despite being 55-48-1 without him since 2012.- Vinovitch has never assessed the Rams' opponent more penalty yardage. That includes the games that McVay coached.- On average, the Rams nearly double the penalty yardage assessed when compared to their opponents in the games Vinovitch has reffed since 2012.- Vinovitch is the only ref to have ejected Aaron Donald.- Vinovitch is the only ref to have ejected Chris Long There is no reason to repeat the exact same officiating crew for the rematch in the playoffs, other than to stack the odds for Drew Brees to go out with a ring. There are TONS of other combinations the NFL could have chosen. Whether or not the bias is intentional, there is too much data to demonstrate a pattern, and for a corporation as big as the NFL to not see this pattern is highly unlikely. The magnitude of this game is too large and the referees should be neutral, plain and simple.

Repeal Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game Suspension (He's Innocent)

After the judicial system (nearly a year ago) ruled Ezekiel Elliott not guilty of domestic violence against ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (in attempts to spur controversy after receiving pressure from other NFL owners to suspend Elliott) suspended Dallas Cowboys All-Pro RB Ezekiel Elliott 6 games nearly 13 months after a false domestic violence report was made on Elliott on July 22, 2016. Thompson has made threats to Elliott to ruin his career, and Elliott's defense team has provided substantial evidence of texts made to Elliott from Thompson wishing to falsely accuse him of domestic violence against her. While many fans (particularly of the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins) will laugh at this petition, I firmly believe that this was an effort made by Goodell that was extremely incorrect and unjust. Something needs to be done about it. Commissioner Goodell, I wish that you consider other suspensions you have issued (such as a 1-game suspension to Josh Brown) and realize that you were extremely pressured into making a significant mistake in suspending an innocent player.
