Check out this Change.org petition that just hit the interwebs demanding the NFL disqualify the Patriots from competing in the Super Bowl, or face an all out boycott by the fans.
Petition: Dear NFL: The Fans Have Spoken, Disqualify The Patriots.
The New England Patriots cheated. Not only did they cheat their opponents, they cheated us fans too.
During the AFC championship game, the Patriots willfully deployed 11 out of 12 under inflated footballs. The deflated balls dramatically improve handleability.
As a result of the above egregious actions, the Patriots should not be allowed to compete in this year’s Super Bowl.
Let the NFL hear your voice loud and clear by signing this petition demanding they disqualify the Patriots.
USA Today put it this way:
“Cheat on a test in school? You fail, no questions asked. Cheat on your taxes, the IRS will find you. It won’t be pretty. Cheat on a World Cup bid and, well, you probably get awarded that World Cup, but that’s neither here nor there. The New England Patriots cheated in the AFC championship. As such, the team should be disqualified from the Super Bowl. Deflating 11 of 12 balls in Sunday’s game, as has been reported by ESPN, is a major violation and something that had a great effect on the game. Given the number of deflated balls, it’s almost impossible this was accident, meaning that someone in the New England organization willfully tampered with the rules to give his team an advantage. That’s cheating.”
Tell the NFL you mean business. You and your friends and family sign this petition now!
