NFL Pro Officials Should Be Fined & Held Accountable
Over the course of football history, fans gather to watch their favorite teams play one of the most beloved sports in the Nation week after week. The excitement and the thrill of the game, camraderie of rival games, and just the hope that your favorite team will rise to the top and finish the game with the W. All throughout the years the players, coaches, and anyone associated with them can be subject to penalties and fines if the rules of the league are not followed. However, Referees have never been held accountable for any wrong or missed calls. They are paid just like everyone else and should be held accountable for actions that could change the course of a game. With the technology that we have today to review and challenge plays, then it's past time that the refs be fined just as the players would for unsportmanlike conduct. A Ref can blatantly miss a call, like the Saints / Rams NFC Championship controversy along with others, and have no repercussions, while the trajectory of the game is thrown. No fine, no reprimands nothing. If the officiating team was held more accountable for their actions like the other employees of the league then maybe they would take more consideration into their job. Please consider signing to have the Officiating team held to higher standards like everyone else employed by the NFL.

Nationwide 2019 Superbowl Boycott
As an avid football enthusiast, watching the referring that went on this season, including the atrocious NFC/AFC calls, is truly heart breaking. Especially, considering lives and history are being tainted. Why should we sit around and watch referees decide the fate of games? A team's year long work and dedication shouldn't be decided in the hands of an ignorant set of refs. In order for our voice to be heard, we must put a dent in the NFL's pocket. A hard feat, but something that must happen to ensure fairness for decades to come.

Fire the officials of the Lions at Packers game
On October 14th, 2019, refball occurred once again. On a crucial 3rd and 4, Aaron Rodgers threw an incomplete pass, but a flag came out with illegal use to the hands by Trey Flowers. On replay, there is no reason as to why they threw the flag, Flowers wasn’t around Bakhitari’s neck or helmet. This call gave the Packers a crucial first down to run the clock out and get Crosby closer and then he kicked the game winning field goal. If the penalty wasn’t called, Crosby may have not made the kick. If he did, the Lions would’ve had some time to potentially drive down the field and try to win it. Now although both of those are hypotheticals, and may not have happened, the refs took away the chance for the Lions to potentially win the game. Screw the refs, they should be fired after this game. And I’m not a Lions fan, I started a similar petition after last year’s NFC Championship game. I just want refs to be held accountable for their mistakes.

Calling for resignation of The NFL Commissioner, and The referees of the NFC Championship
I am calling on all fans of the NFL, to protest the referees deliberate non call on the NFC championship game of pass interference and Helmet to Helmet contact. Which would have made The Saints 1st and goal on the 3 yard line with under 2 minutes left in the game. This deliberate non call by the referees changed the out come of this game. I also call on the NFL to start a investigation into sports tampering. Fans, what is the point in watching your team play, if the game is rigged. I call on all team owners to ask for the resignation of the NFL Commissioner and the resignation of the referees officiating The NFC championship game, between The Saints and The Rams on Sunday 1/20/2019 . As a life long fan of the NFL, I have always respected the outcome of my teams wins and losses. But this deliberate tampering by these referees to change the out come of this game, can not go unpunished or unchallenged. Tampering with the out come of games must be addressed, or what’s the point of even watching any of it. The NFL Commissioner had the power to stop this game and address this deliberate obstruction of the officiating referees. Roger, chose to do nothing, he is more than like, thinking he can just change the rules next year to address Ignorance of officiating Referees. But this is not right to let the Rams go to the Super Bowl, due to this deliberate obstruction by the Referees. This has tainted the NFL, to the point of down right disgraceful, really allowing sports tampering, Roger? This is a disgrace of an American past time. If your going to have rules, they must be followed each and every second of a game. Fans, This is a sad day, how does it feel knowing that any team, can be cheated out of a championship, and the present NFL Commissioner stood there, and chose to stay on the sideline and do nothing. Please protest, and vote on this petition, on calling for the resignation of the NFL Commissioner and referees of the NFC championship game on Sunday 1/20/19

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!

Fire NFL Refs. NFL officiating needs to change. NFL is biased towards big market teams
The NFL officiating this year has been painful to watch. Calls are costing teams games and playoffs hopes. The NFL for too long has propped up teams like the Packers, Cowboys, and Patriots because they can make the league a whole lot more money than small market teams. Fans know it, but not enough people talk about it. It’s time for the NFL to change leadership and it’s time for the game to be fair again.

NFL officiating is a joke
Poor officiating we have seen it time and time again questionable calls on the field. I just witnessed a team lose due to poor officiating. Otherwise they would've won. This was the second week in a row and the officials will get away with it so we need Rodger Goodall to make a decision about the officiating issues and make things right for the Lions who just lost due to it so we need to petition Rodger Goodall.
