PETITION TO REMOVE ROGER GOODELL AS COMMISSIONER OF THE NFL
To Owners of the NFL:
We, the fans of the NFL, believe Roger Goodell ("Goodell") should be removed as Commissioner of the National Football League ("NFL").
It is our opinion that Goodell is simply a businessman wholacks the personal experience and knowledge of the game of football from a player's perspective, and, therefore, is unqualified to hold the office of Commissioner of the NFL.
As fans of the NFL, we are disappointed in the manner in which Goodell and his administration has changed the traditional game of football. Goodell inconsistently implemented fines upon players for what he deemed to be "illegal hits" while ignoring hits of the same calibur by other players. This inconsistency slowed the game, angered fans and even confused the officials.
Additionally, we disagree with expanding the season to 18 games without concessions for player health, rosters and salary.
With the expiration of the current CBA and a lockout looming and for the reasons stated above and other reasons, we fans believe the NFL needs new leadership. Until Goodell steps down, we will not purchase any merchandise from NFLShop.com and will avoid purchasing products from any official NFL sponsors.
FANS OF THE NFL
