There are some strange sports-related stories. And then there are some that are so far out there that they border on the term absurd.
This one seems to qualify as the later for a variety of reasons until you stop to think about it.
According to the Dallas Morning News, a Georgia man has started a petition to present to the President of the United States to forcibly remove Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from his post.
“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.”
It should be pointed out that while the creator Steven M is credited for living in the state of Georgia, the city listed is Fort Benning which is a military base.
It stands to reason that he is serving our country on behalf of the state of Texas. Obviously, this can’t and won’t happen. What’s interesting is that at post time the petition already has 487 signatures.
It needs 25,000 to get an “official response” from the White House so perhaps this one that is listed under “Human Rights” is simply trying to be sensationalistic enough to send Jerry a message that he might want to think about hiring a GM.
