Earlier this week, we became aware of a petition on the official website for the White House, which called for Jerry Jones to be removed as Cowboys’ owner and general manager. The petition, which was put up by a disgruntled fan in Georgia, was up to north of 2,000 signatures when we found out about it, but it won’t be gaining any more steam.
That’s because, as reported by ESPN Dallas, the petition has been removed.
The White House’s official website explained the decision by saying, simply, that the anti-Jerry petition represented a “violation of our Terms of Participation.” Which is too bad, in a way. We wouldn’t expect anything major to come as a result of the petition, but it would have been fun to see how many fans from across Cowboy Nation would take the time to add their name.
According to the aforementioned ESPN report, the petition had more than 4,000 names on it when it was removed.
