181. Review Manchester United And Chelsea "Offside Goal" (April 3rd)

The Football Match Between Manchester United And Chelsea is a big big match all the time but this season with just points in between the top 2, it counts more than ever that a referee or a linesman is accurate and fair.

Chelsea player Drogba scored a goal from which was clearly a off-side position and the linesman Simon Beck was clearly able to see this, and he has been penalised by being demoted to Championship duty.

But Why should a team also be penalised?
Manchester United in this case.

The Goal was offside and it should not count.

182. No To Banning Of English Flags During The World Cup Football Tournament

There has been talk that the government of Tower Hamlets in London are banning the flying of English Flags during the World Cup Football.

We feel this is wrong that the people that want to cannot support their country through fear of upsetting other religions.

183. Να Τιμωρηθεί Παραδειγματικά όποιος ευθύνεται για την κακοποίηση μέχρι θανάτου του ανυπεράσπιστου ζώου

Α football fan sprayed a rabbit with orange paint in an attempt to taunt the other team’s supporters whose color is orange. The rabbit’s legs were broken probably so he can't move or run away from the field. The rabbit died while dozens of people girls and boys were laughing and applause the hero...

This petition has nothing to do with football, we don't support any team, all we ask for is for the people who tortured and killed the animal to be prosecuted for what they have done. We want Cyprus to respect that EU has laws for the animals also. As European citizens we demand Cypriot authorities to respect and follow the EU laws for animal abuse and protection.

184. Citizens of Fitzgerald & Ben Hill County

Going before the Ben Hill County Board of Commissioners on April 6, 2010, is the 2011 SPLOST Referendum.

The Fitzgerald City Council voted unanimously in favor of the final proposal in February 2010, meeting.

We ask that the City Council to reconsider allocating $600,000 toward synthetic turf.

We are continuing to collect signatures as the referendum is planned to appear before the County Commissioners on April 6, 2010.

185. Keep Football Fever on the air!

Australia's premier football show for over six years, Football Fever, founded by Paul Williams is to go to air for the final time on March 28th on SkySports Radio 1017AM.

The show is THE source for A-League and international world football news on the Australian airwaves. With the 2010 World Cup in South Africa fast approaching, football fans and Sky Sports Radio NEED Football Fever to stay on the air!

Sunday nights just would not be the same without Damo, Francis, Les and Terazio - not to mention Mr Modrich, fellow emailers and callers!

Express your support for the show and let SKY SPORTS RADIO know about the loss that FOOTBALL FEVER will be to their program schedule.

186. Vote of no confidence

ATC have shown in their dealings with Molson Coors that they are not qualified to make the best decisions on behalf of all Altonians in respect of town planning.

They have also shown that they are not prepared to listen to residents whose views do not coincide with their own.

They have allowed their own personal agendas to take priority over what is best for the town in the long-term,


Brett Favre is an amazing quarterback with the Minnesota Vikings.

He is also a great family man, role model and humanitarian (Brett Favre Fourward Foundation).

This petition is to show our love and support for Brett, and to ask that he please return to another year of football.

188. Let Fairlawn Local Schools have Football

For an example Sidny Schools were falling through so we got some of there athletes... An I think they should still have a chance to play. We don't have to buy a new stadium all we need is some lines and a couple of field goal posts and we can use the new soccer field.. All we need is your help..

189. Annulez La Sanction Du Togo - Reverse the Togo ban

La Confédération africaine de football (CAF) a décidé le 30 Janvier 2010 de suspendre pour deux Coupes d'Afrique des nations le Togo, qui s'était retiré de la CAN-2010 sur décision gouvernementale à la suite du mitraillage de sa délégation, le 8 janvier dans l'enclave de Cabinda, faisant deux morts. La CAF demande également au Togo de payer $50,000 d'amende.

Cette décision a choqué tous ceux qui aiment le football et sont épris de justice. Dans le monde entier, des voix s'élèvent pour condamner l'attitude d'Issa Hayatou, le Président (25 ans) de la CAF.

La présente pétition est initiée en vue d'exiger l'annulation de la décision inique et rétablir le Togo dans ses droits.

190. 2010 FIFA World Cup for Haiti

Football is important to the Haitian people. After what they have just been through, after what they have just survived, what better way to bring a smile to their faces than by dedicating this year's World Cup to them?

191. Reverse the Togo Cup of Nations Ban

We, the undersigned, believe that the decision to punish the Togo Football Team for withdrawing from the recent Cup of Nations to be a highly insensitive one that shows no respect to natural justice.

We understand that the reason for the ban and fine is the interference of the Togo government which did breach CAF regulations, but we believe that given the exceptional circumstances of the attack on the Togo Team bus, and the responsibility of the Togo government to the safety of its people, that the breach of the regulations on this occasion was wholly understandable.

We also note the failure of the CAF to provide adequate security to a team partaking in their tournament.

192. Give Kentucky an NFL Team

Kentucky hasn't had an NFL team since the 1920's. That's 90 years. Kentucky is big enough to have an NFL team. It could be located in Louisville or Lexington.

Please give Kentucky an NFL team. Even if they are horrible I know that I and a lot of people in Kentucky would support them. Thanks you.

193. Get Stephen Hopkins signed to Sporting Hinton Permanently

He may think he is too old but Hinton needs the old man at the back and we need him to know we don't think he is past it! The treble is on!

194. Stop schelden met kanker !

Het is de afgelopen tijd schering en inslag, als het gaat om het gebruik van het vreselijke woord kanker in onze maatschappij. Jongeren gebruiken het te pas en te onpas, zonder zich te beseffen hoeveel mensen ze daarmee kwetsen. Het is gewoon dagelijks taalgebruik geworden. Dit kan niet, mag niet, en zal niet gebeuren.
Het moet echt stoppen !!

195. New Improved Sudden Death Overtime

Some of the greatest NFL games are those in which 2 teams "leave it all on the field" and fight it out with all they've got, only to end the 4 quarters in a tie - going to sudden-death overtime.

It seems too anti-climactic that the outcome of these super-athletic performances would come to rest on the flip of a coin and the foot of a kicker.

These talented players, and more importantly the fans, deserve better.

196. Petition Against Floodlighting at St Aloysius School

Developers Balfour Beatty have applied for planning permission to erect eight 23 foot (eight metre) high floodlight columns on the sports and games areas at St Aloysius School in Hornsey Lane. The pitches are next to a woodland conservation area and the floodlights will be clearly visible to homes on all sides of the school. This contrary to policy.

The facilities can accommodate 3 football games, the users of a large sports hall and associated spectators. The planning application requests permission to use floodlights until 9pm weekdays and until 7pm weekends and Bank Holidays.

197. Let SOUTHAMPTON bid to host the 2018 World Cup

In two weeks time the FA will decide on which cities it will put forward with its bid to host the World Cup in 2018. The South is not represented! After Pompey pulled out it is left to SOUTHAMPTON to represent the South (Milton Keynes is hardly the south) as a host city for England's 2018 World Cup bid.

We weren't on the original list due to Southampton FC's financial woes in the summer but now we're set to step up and be counted.

The FA simply has to allow the city to bid. We have the facilities, both in footballing terms and the ability to welcome the world's football fans to our great city.

198. Show Your Support For Coventry RFC

Coventry RFC, founded in 1874 has been put into liquidation today by its owner Andrew Green.

We now need to move forward and show this that this Rugby Club is for the people of Coventry and for the rugby community at large.

199. Retire number 9 at Larissa FC!

Antonio de Nigris, a Mexican footballer who played for Larissa FC, tragically died on November 16, 2009. He died because of a heart attack while sleeping on that fateful night.

De Nigris played with #9 at the club. We want Larissa FC to retire the number in memory of him.

200. Support NCAA Division I-A Football Playoffs

As we all know, the BCS system for determining the Division I-A National Champion has never allowed for schools from the lesser publicized conferences to really have a chance to win a National Title.

During the '90s, Marshall University and Florida State were the only two undefeated teams in the nation, yet Marshall was only ranked at #7 with no chance to prove themselves. More recently, Boise State has also not been afforded that opportunity.

This year could produce as many as four undefeated teams and two will also not be afforded that opportunity.

We therefore propose the following petition to the NCAA to eliminate this discrimination.

201. Introduce Video Technology for Soccer/Football

Video Technology must be introduced into Soccer/Football. The player's want it, the manager's want it, and the fan's want it! The only people who do not are Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini!

There is evidence across the globe on a daily basis as to why it must be introduced! If everyone gets involved, then surely the governing bodies must listen!

202. Greater Team Power in Football

The blatant cheating the French national team inflicted on the Republic of Ireland in Wednesday's (18/11/2009) Play Off Game.

Darren Fletcher's Red card against Arsenal 08/09 Champions League.

Chelsea vs Barcelona 08/09 Champions League Semi Final 2nd Leg refusal of Penalties.

203. Replay Ireland vs. France World Cup Qualifying Match

On November 18th, 2009 Ireland took on France with a chance to qualify for the World Cup.

In the final seconds, however, France was allowed to get away with a blatant handball that caused Ireland to lose the game and any chance of qualifying for the World Cup as well.

Since then many surveys have been taken, all with the overwhelming majority crying for a rematch.

204. Support Football Video Referees

This petition is a response to the injustice felt by the lifeblood of football, the people who support their club/nation, the people who sustain an industry with their tireless support, the people who own the game, the football fans.

We are seeking to eliminate the cheating which is blatantly obvious to the majority of people watching the game, but all too often goes unnoticed and unpunished by the referee and their assistants.

“Winning is without value if victory has been achieved unfairly or dishonestly”. This is an extract from the Fair Play Golden Rules, and does not seem to tally up with many examples of victories achieved unfairly and dishonestly such as; Thierry Henry handling the ball and leading to a goal which ultimately stopped the Republic of Ireland reaching the world cup - Rivaldo’s play acting which lead to the sending off of Hakan Unsal and a winning penalty scored by Rivaldo, and Ultimately winning the World Cup – Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ which knocked out England and ultimately led to Argentina winning the World Cup.

Surely a great deal of value was gained by France, Brazil and Argentina in the above instances of unfairness and dishonesty.

Players have a duty towards their own country/club and therefore can only be expected to do everything they can to win. If the option is there for them to make a split second decision to cheat in order to gain an advantage, it is inevitable that they will take the chance.

Something must be done to both deter and correct this.

205. Move the Detroit Lions to Windsor, Ontario, Canada

For years, Canadians have wanted to go see a live NFL game but walking in an American city would be too dangerous for most Canadians.

I believe that if the Detroit Lions were moved to Windsor, Canadians would be able to watch a live NFL game in their own country. It would be superior to CFL football and most fans would be able to identify with the players more.

Americans would still be able to access the game by mass transit. The city should pay for 40% of the cost of building a new stadium, the Detroit Lions should pay 40%, and the NFL should pay 20%.

206. FIFA must video review the Ireland vs France Qualifier

On Wednesday 18th November Ireland was robbed of its chance to qualify for the world cup by a blatant and obvious foul.

207. Land of Hope and Glory

Every country have their own national anthem. When it comes to football, we would like England to have Land of Hope and Glory. Scotland have the Flower of Scotland, and Wales have the Land of My Fathers.

We should only use GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, when we are in the Olympics as one NATION (Great Britain) (The Queen) Your Majesty please do not Interpret this as an act of TREASON.

208. Let Greg Jennings go!

The shows' instability to score over 88 points is due from the dead weight known as Greg Jennings.

Greg Jennings has a big name and put up great numbers last year but as for this year his only real contribution was in week one.

He is quickly turning into the 2009 version of the 2007 Braylon Edwards.

209. Boycott Carolina Panthers NOW!!

Carolina Panthers fans are tired of the weak excuse we have for a starting quarterback in Jake Delhomme. We are tired of watching him throw interceptions and entire games without being benched.

We are tired of the terrible playcalling of the Panthers coaching staff, and call for the immediate firing or resignation of Coach John Fox. There is not one single team we should not have been able to stay with or beat this season if we had a competent quarterback and coach, as a Carolina Panthers PSL owner, season ticket holder and fan since inception, I am urging every Carolina Panthers fan to boycott going to any more home games until the coaching and decision making skills of this organization are changed.

210. NFL Should have the team with the best record host the Superbowl

The NBA and The NHL have their deciding games hosted by the team with the best record. Baseball has game #7 of the World Series hosted by the league which wins the All Star game.

Unfortunately the NFL has the Superbowl at a neutral site stadium. We the undersigned believe the Conference Champion with best won-loss record in the regular season, should host the Superbowl in front of their fans.

If that means the Superbowl has to be played in a blizzard in Green Bay, Buffalo or New England so be it.
