Cowboys Fans Petition White House to Remove Jerry Jones

| by Alex Groberman

There are varying opinions on just how good the Dallas Cowboys were supposed to be in 2012, but everyone seems to acknowledge that the team is currently underachieving. Regardless of whether you feel like this squad has the capability (on paper) to be a Super Bowl contender or is just good enough to be a playoff team, there is no denying that they should be better than 5-6 on the year.

Everyone deserves blame for how this Cowboys season has played out to date, but it appears as though at least some fans feel like all of the blame should go straight to the top.

As noted by LBS, a Georgia man has started an online petition requesting that President Barack Obama remove Jerry Jones from his perch atop the Cowboys. This was the exact wording in the petition:

"We, the Citizens of the Great State of Texas, and Dallas Cowboys fans worldwide, have been oppressed by an over controlling, delusional, oppressive dictator for way too long. Request the Executive Branch's immediate assistance in removal of owner and GM, Jerry Jones. His incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress."

As of right now, only 521 people have signed the petition. Cowboys fans can’t even get enthused about overthrowing the boss, apparently.

A week ago Ohio State fans started a petition demanding that President Obama lift their postseason ban. That petition got yanked from the site after a few hours. If this one stays up, that means the government agrees with the general notion of getting rid of Jerry Jones, too.
