Cowboys Fans Petition Obama To Replace Jerry Jones

There are two things that the people of Texas want: To secede from the United States and to get rid of Jerry Jones. Dallas Cowboys fans filed a petition today asking President Obama to get rid of the team’s current owner.

The petition reads:

“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.”

The NY Post reports that Jones purchased the Cowboys in 1989. He currently works as the team’s owner and the team’s general manager. Jones said earlier this month that he would have fired the team’s general manager if, you know, it wasn’t him.

The petition filed by Cowboys fans only has a few thousand signatures at the moment. It will need to hit 25,000 to warrant a response from the White House.

This isn’t the first time that a sports related petition has been filed on the We The People website. Ohio State fans petitioned Obama in an attempt to have their post-season bowl ban revoked. Needless to say, it didn’t work.

Do you think the Cowboys, who are currently 5-6, should get rid of Jerry Jones?

    I have heard it all now! Give me a break. I have been a Cowboy's fan for most of the franchises life and have seen a lot of things, butwhat kind of fruit loop started this petition? Does he realize how much GOOD Jerry Jones has done for the Dallas Cowboys? 3 superbowls count for nothing? When the Hershal Walker trade happened, Jimmy Johnson wanted to trade Michael Irvin instead. Jerry said NO and the rest is history! Have we had hard times lately? Yes we have, BUT are the injuries Jerry's fault. I don't think so! We have a good YOUNG group of players to go along with the vetrans. Give this group a year or two to get healthy and gel and they will win us another tittle or three! If our MORON of a president actually did this, he should be impeached for gross abuse of power. If you don't like what Jerry is doing then find another team to support.

    Let's see you want to secede but you want the President to intervene with a private enterprise in Texas to make you happy. Hmmm sounds like you don't know what you want. Ah yes sounds exactly like Texas.

    While I understand that the comment was made in jest, the vast majority of people in Texas do not want to secede. The secession movement is about.4%. That's one tenth of one percent of the population here. OTOH, Jerry Jones does need to go away.
