Petition to Jerome Adams
Have the Surgeon General review the NFL's concussion policy with regard to CTE
There are clear scientific links between the degenerative neurological disease CTE and the repeated head trauma which football players experience, whether it is at a junior, high school, college, or NFL level. The US surgeon general had the power to require alcohol distributors to print notices on bottles warning pregnant women of potential birth defects and also had the power to require cigarette and cigar distributors to print warnings on packs about the links between their products and cancer. This is a petition for the surgeon general to review the NFL's claims that there is no link between football and CTE, and to hopefully use the same power described above to require that football equipment manufacturers include warnings about CTE on all football players' helmets.

Protect CAMVP Newton Properly!
As an football fan, I am repulsed in the way Cameron Jerrell Newton the NFL's reigning MVP has been treated unfairly. It's completely unjust for him to continue to take brutal hits that have the potential to be career and life ending. The endangerment of the Quarterback Newton is very disheartening and takes the fun out of the game. As an NFL fan for many years I now understand why the views have gone down; this is absolutely disgusting to allow QB Cam Newton to continue to take hits without the proper calls being made from the referees. Any negligence from referees should result in disciplinary action. Protect Newton or continue to lose more fans. He brings fun to the game and deserves this protection for the safety of his health. Officiate properly according to the QB rules of protection, that is the referees job. Protect MVP Carolina Panthers QB Cameron Newton #1 regardless of his style of play or size. Cam Newton - "I don't even feel safe."
