Cowboys fan petitions President Obama to remove Jerry Jones as owner

Forget message boards and sports talk radio, White House petitions are the new creative outlet for fans looking to express their displeasure.

Taking a cue from Ohio State fans, a disgruntled Dallas Cowboys fan submitted a petition to the White House on Monday that asks President Obama to remove Jerry Jones as the team’s owner and GM.

“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,” the petition states. “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 petition was created on Friday Nov. 23, the day after the Cowboys lost 38-31 to the Washington Redskins to drop to 5-6. It was pretty hilariously categorized as a “human rights” issue. 25,000 signatures are needed by Dec. 23 to reach the petition’s goal.

Since it will likely be removed by the White House website like this one, we snagged a screenshot of what it looks like:

Dez Bryant on Cowboys fans booing: ‘That hurt my heart’

Dez Bryant has had about as much of an up-and-down season with the Dallas Cowboys this year as you can have. So has the team, and they put their fans through another roller coaster ride on Sunday with an overtime win over the Cleveland Browns.

Bryant had an outstanding day as he recorded 12 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. However, Cowboys fans booed him in the second quarter when he caught a pass and ran out of bounds before the first-down marker to avoid taking a hit. Apparently the boos hurt his feelings.

I was hearing it. I was,” he said according to USA Today. “Man, that hurt my heart.”

The third-year receiver said he wasn’t aware of where he was on the field and didn’t intend to step out before picking up the first down. Cowboys fans booed when the play happened and then again when the replay was shown on the video board.

“When I seen where we was at, I was like, damn,” Bryant explained. “I didn’t mean to do that. It’s not like me. It’s not like me to run out of bounds. I seen like four or five guys coming so I took a step out. I didn’t see the first down marker. That’s my bad. I should’ve known where we was at on the field.”

Had it been any other player, the fans may not have booed. For as many monster performances as Bryant has had this season, he seems to be equally prone to brain farts. He spoiled a career-high 13-catch effort in a loss earlier this season when he made two crucial mistakes that may have cost Dallas the game. Fortunately, the Cowboys won on Sunday. However, the boos from the fans seem to indicate that Bryant has lost the benefit of the doubt — even when he enjoys a breakout performance.

Troy Aikman questions Dallas sports fans

Former Cowboys legend Troy Aikman questioned the passion of Dallas sports, accusing them of being front-runners.

Aikman was appearing on “The Musers” on 1310 The Ticket in Dallas last Thursday when he questioned the fans. His comments seemed to be a response to the Cowboys’ 34-18 home loss to the Bears a few days earlier.

After the game, Chicago receiver Brandon Marshall said the environment at Cowboys Stadium “felt like a home game” for the Bears. Aikman agrees that the Cowboys don’t have a great home field advantage.

“I don’t think Dallas has ever really had a great home field advantage,” Aikman said, via The Dallas Morning News. “What I’ve heard is that, ‘Wow, they really lost home field advantage when they left Texas Stadium.’ Texas Stadium really wasn’t that different. Having played playoff games in Texas Stadium, that stadium was rocking, it was great. … But when we would play in Philadelphia, New York and walk out of the tunnel, I would have to be yelling at the top of my lungs for guys to hear me. And you get on the plane for the flight home and your head would be pounding, you wouldn’t have a voice, and that’s just the way that it was. There was no way you could go down there near the goal line and use hard count in an opposing stadium. And yet in Texas Stadium, teams did it all the time.”

Aikman played 93 games at Texas Stadium during his Hall of Fame career, so he has plenty of experience playing in front of Dallas sports fans. He gave the following assessment of them.

Cowboys Fan Teaches Son How to Burn Tony Romo Jersey (Video)

The concept of jersey burning has become such a common practice in sports that it has lost any originality it once had.  Fans now burn jerseys when a player switches teams or chokes in a big game.  They burn jerseys to forget the past or to express displeasure with a draft pick.  However, there can still be a first time for everything — even when it comes to setting jerseys on fire.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think there has ever been a video of an angry fan teaching his extremely young son how to light a player’s jersey on fire.  That’s why we have Cowboys fans.  Check out this video of a cowboys fan teaching his son how to burn a Tony Romo jersey, courtesy of Los That Sports Blog via Black Sports Online:

Cowboys Fan Receives Lap Dance During Giants Game (Video)

As Jimmy Traina wrote on his twitter page when he shared the following video, not all is bad for the Dallas Cowboys. The team may be 1-6 but at least its fans are seeing some action. Take for instance the Cowboys fan in this video who was entertained by the woman sitting next to him. When we call it a lap dance, we’re not even exaggerating. Late in the video the shirt goes up and the bra is exposed. Without a doubt, this one is NSFW:

Think she’s ever going to drink at a sports event again? Let’s hope so.
