Convicted domestic abusers aren’t heroes. Don’t let them play in the NFL.
I’ve been a football fan for years, proudly rooting for the Cleveland Browns through the good seasons and the bad ones. I’m also a social worker who works with children who have experienced domestic violence in their families. That’s why I was sickened to find out that NFL players and staff can be convicted of domestic violence in a court of law and keep their jobs. My young clients shouldn’t be told by the NFL that it’s ok for domestic abusers to hurt people, and still be professional sports heroes. If the NFL really takes domestic violence seriously, why do they think it’s ok to wait until someone is criminally convicted of domestic violence twice before they finally get kicked out? Many people, but especially our kids, look up to NFL players -- some even consider them heroes. The NFL even refers to its players as heroes on their own web site. And as a social worker who works with children who have experienced domestic violence in their families, I know how important inspiring role models can be. But to me, a real hero is a hero on and off the field. Children who experience domestic violence need to know that how they or their abused parent have been treated is not okay. They need to see that domestic violence is unacceptable whether it’s someone’s parent hitting a child, or an NFL player hurting his wife or girlfriend. Tell the NFL that if a court convicts a football player or staff member of domestic violence, that person shouldn’t get to keep being a hero every Sunday. NFL commentator and Hall of Fame member Terry Bradshaw recently said, “Anybody, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don't care who you are, my friend: you never come back in this league. … I really, really seriously hope, eventually, we never have a place in the NFL for people who ... strike a woman.” I agree. The NFL should not be home to men convicted of domestic violence. But the NFL’s current policy sends a message to everyone who looks up to people in the NFL that domestic abusers still get to be heroes. This is wrong. Sign my petition. Tell the NFL that if someone is convicted of domestic violence, they should be kicked out of the NFL.

Change the Las Vegas Raiders Name & Colors
There is a chance that the Oakland Raiders might relocate to our wonderful city Las Vegas, NV. Most of us citizens would be OVER JOYED to have a NFL team in our town. Our town with everything, is missing a professional sports team and moving the Raiders here would be a dream come true! BUT -- we are asking for the name of the team and the colors to be changed, perhaps voted on or some county wide contest. The signees of this petition do not care at this time what color/name is choose as long as we rid our team the silver/black colors and the Raider name. This is Las Vegas, we want a fresh start, we want a fresh team -- we want to start our own legacy not be part of someone else's. Thank you!!

NFL Teams: Pay Your Cheerleaders A Living Wage
NFL Cheerleaders are one of the most recognizable mainstays of the sport, rooting on their teams in extreme weather and performing routines for millions of fans. But while NFL Cheerleaders bring in as much as $1 million dollars each season for their teams in merchandising and promotions, many get paid as little as $150 per game. In fact, while NFL Cheerleaders do have some opportunities for outside appearances, many of these skilled athletes make less than $1000 per year. Comparatively, an NFL Mascot can make as much as $65,000 per season; and while some NFL teams have recently moved in the direction of paying Cheerleaders minimum wage ($9 per hour), the NFL pays Concession Stand Workers $12-$18 per hour. NFL Cheerleaders spend countless hours at practice each week, perfecting their routines, but most aren’t paid for any of it. Being an NFL cheerleader isn’t a hobby; for many, it’s their dream come true. The selection process for the few slots on each squad is highly competitive and each member is required to have highly specialized dance and athletic skills. It’s time for NFL teams to step up and start paying cheerleaders a “living wage”. Please join me, Paula Abdul, and numerous other great supporters, in asking the 26 NFL teams that have cheerleading squads to commit to paying their Cheerleaders a living wage for the work they do contribute to their respective franchises and the National Football League as a whole.

Demand the NFL and all parties involved to apologize to Janet Jackson over SB performance
Whereas, Janet Jackson, one of the most celebrated artists of all time, deserves an apology from all parties involved over the way she was unfairly treated in the aftermath of her iconic Superbowl Halftime performance. The backlash that she received was far more than what Justin Timberlake received and the NFL, MTV, CBS, FCC, etc should right this wrong and issue an apology to Jackson immediately, as well as lift the ban and invite her to come back to perform at the Halftime show. Janet Jackson was vilified by the media, and blacklisted from radio and music video channels for several years after the incident which without question tarnished her brand and legacy. If you believe in equality and fairness and you believe this was an injustice, please support our cause and sign this petition.

The Truth Behind The Game Winning Touchdown of Super Bowl 51
In overtime the patriots supposedly scored a game winning touchdown to win Super Bowl 51. There was no review on the play to confirm it was a touchdown. Immediately after the play confetti came down and everyone ran on the field this was wrong and the play should have been reviewed.
