"Fairness for all 32 NFL teams"

        " We the lifelong fans of the NFL are fed up with unfairness of biased officiating,bribed officials, and favoritism of certain players\teams. We the fans who make this great AMERICAN sport possible by supporting the NFL with the purchases of season tickets, merchandise, direct tv accounts,etc, to watch these games outside of the areas our teams play, purchasing of flights, hotels,gas to get to the stadiums across America, dining to go and support our teams,WE are the ones who make this sport possible and we are fed up with the unfairness that this sport has turned into.WE spend our hard earned money that benefits this entire league for what ?To have our sport be destroyed before our very eyes? We are fed up as fans and we can boycott the NFL by not supporting you and your high paid salaries. We also do not approve of our sport being farmed out to other countries for more greedy profits! We the fans of this petition nationwide and the NFL are not taking NO for an answer, We are demanding changes to be put into place immediately. WE are not interested in your dream match ups and Superbowls of your choice, get it together league or you will not have any of us left except for the countries you are farming our games out to..The Saints bounty gate with the Vikings, the Saints\Rams game last season, The Lions most recent GB game, The Tom Brady favoritism, Aaron Rodgers favoritism, We do not care about your dream match up in a Superbowl when there are other teams who are playing clean professional football. We know how much money is involved behind the scenes, fantasy football betting, gambling on the Vegas lines, ENOUGH !!! This American game we all love is being trashed because of GREED and we have had it as fans. Patriots win 6 Super Bowls? come on NFL. We see right through your smoke and mirrors and WE all are fully prepared to not support this corruption and greed another game! The NFL is fully in charge and must do something about this unfairness. Commissioner Goodell you get a salary of 32 million a year now do something about this before you are out of a job and the league is no longer. This is a new era and with all of the social media and ways we can all communicate to one another you do not have any options left. WE the lifelong fans of the NFL are "demanding" fairness NOW.

Petition to Roger Goodell

Fire Al Riveron, Fix The NFL Officiating!

The NFL has been plagued by poor officiating ever since Al Riveron was promoted to Senior Vice President of Officiating before the start of the 2017 season. While we understand that the officials are human and will not be perfect, the questionable calls have become more glaringly obvious and have increased in numbers since Riveron's promotion. Furthermore, after perhaps the worst call in NFL history (from last year's NFC Championship game), it appeared as though steps were finally being made to fix the officiating by allowing pass interference calls to be reviewable... only for it to be clear that Riveron wants no part of it as he refuses to overturn almost all reviewed pass interference challenges, even calls that are obviously incorrect. The NFL must fix its officiating and fast before it starts to seriously damage the quality of the league, and we believe a good start to this process is for Roger Goodell to fire Al Riveron from his position as Senior Vice President of Officiating as soon as possible. NFL officiating has been criticized more than it has ever before since his promotion, and we therefore believe that he is not the right man for the job. Further actions to fix the officiating that could be taken after firing Riveron include punishing referees who have continually made terrible calls, and being more open to suggestions from NFL owners in regards to addressing officiating and replays. Thank you for your time in reading this. If you agree, please sign this petition, and share with all your friends and family who wish to improve NFL officiating. Together we must show that we want change!
