Getting the USMNT into the World Cup through an appeal.
This petition had 505 supporters
The United States, although failing to take care of business in qualifying, did not deserve to be knocked out of the World Cup today. Panama scored a phantom goal against Costa Rica that, through video evidence, is conclusively not a goal.
"....2. Only parties directly affected by a decision may appeal to CAS. However, where doping-related decisions are concerned, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) may appeal to CAS."
Had this game ended in a draw, the USMNT would be playing a final qualifier against the Australian squad. Regardless of whether or not you believe the USMNT actually deserves this opportunity, there's objectively a legitimate appeal to be made here to CONCAF that can save our dreams of witnessing amazing moments on the largest sporting stage in the world; those moments where everyone in the bar rises and screams as Pulisic scores a goal to help the US advance, just as his predecessor Donnovan has done in the past. We want Dempsey to get his last run. We want to be represented, not ashamed.
It will take Costa Rica or the USMNT to get this appeal filed, and would be much more apt to a rightful decision if both appeal. Please sign this petition to bring attention to the fact that we, as Americans, want this injustice addressed.
