Boxing is still relevant and making a huge comeback. Boxing fans dont wanna play UFC and play Knockout mode...Thats teasing us.

Look at the New UFC 2 game y'all can add that and make it better. I hope this petition really show yall us Boxing fans want this franchise back ASAP! Time is LONG OVERDUE!

2. 6th Grade Sports

In the state of South Carolina 6th graders aren’t allowed to play sports. Why, you may ask. Some say it is because of money, some say it is because of safety. All good reasons but, where do the 6th graders come in? Adults shouldn’t always choose for us. We should have our own voice. The 7th and 8th grade students shouldn’t get special privileges just because they’re older! That is why we need your help. Your help to get 6th graders shooting 3’s, scoring goal, and running touchdowns! Sign the petition so everyone can have a voice.

3. We want Adrian Donnelly to Play

Students should have a right to play whatever sport he or she desires. They also should have the right to choose to continue to play the sport or not without penalties for leaving the sport. If a rule is created to prevent students from quitting a sport that is taking away their rights. Instead, focus on creating an environment and program where students don't want to quit. Students only have 4 years to play sports for their school. Being unable to play any sports for the full calendar year is not fair and is taking a students rights away. We believe Adrian Donnelly should have a right to play soccer this season for PCA.

4. Save Jim Castle, Massabesic High School's Athletic Trainer

James (Jim) Castle has been the Athletic Trainer for Massabesic sports for many years now and is loved by many students and parents as well. My own personal experience with him was a great one as he took care of my son for several years in various sports. He always greats me with a smile and great conversation. He's passionate about his job and loves the kids. He has been a great Athletic Trainer for us and has been informed he won't be back after this year. I hope we as a community can come together and change the minds of those who are letting him go.

Thank You for your time,
Rick Bear

5. Save Our Swim Team

Whidbey Island's only competitive swim team, "NWAC" or the North Whidbey Aquatic Club (a program of the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District, NWPRD) is under threat of being "dissolved" by a motion of one board member who has decided that this community should not have this athletic option for our children.
The NWAC team has served many hundreds of children in our community over its 3 decade history as a path to health, fitness, focus, success and friendship with other fitness focussed children in the community. The families who have been enrolled in the program in the last year have repeatedly asked the board to provide a financial target to make the team "revenue neutral" to the district, as that had been the board's stated goal. The board rejected a recent plan to do just that, and without engaging the voters of the district any further, moved to "dissolve" the team regardless of whether it can be continued at zero cost to the district's other members.

6. Remembering A Legend

Douglas Eugene Potts was an upstanding citizen, father, grandfather, and friend. He spent most of his free time on the baseball field he grew up on practicing, playing, and even teaching others how to play. He had the ability and patience to bring everyone together and help those he could. Being a big sports fan, he dedicated time and heart to something he loved with hopes of extending that love to others. Myself and others would like to honor his name ,and the place he considered a second home, by naming the field "The Doug Potts Field".

7. Three Terms for South African Schools

Three School Terms for South Africa.
I am a ballet teacher. I cannot get my work done with the 4 terms currently in place in the South African Education system.
I feel that in particular that the time between Easter in April and the public holidays on 27 April and 1 May is affecting the whole education system.
The school terms should start for the first school term as from about 15 January until the Thursday before Easter and commence again after the 1st of May. The
second term then from the 2nd of May to about the end of July and the 3rd and last term from the end of August to the end of November.
With all the public holidays currently in place in South Africa school going children are not getting the education they require particularly due to the public holidays in April interfering with the school terms as they are ( currently 4 terms ).
Children will benefit from a less interrupted schedule and have a sufficient time for the summer vacation of at least 6 weeks in December and half of January. Teaching is an extremely demanding occupation and both teachers and learners need to take a longer holiday in summer and focus on school work without interruption of so many public holidays piled up on top of each other.
The majority of private schools in South Africa have 3 trimesters and not 4 terms. The whole of South Africa should agree to a 3 term school term from learners from grade 0 to grade 12 irrespective of private or public schooling.

8. Overturn result Liam Williams vs Liam Smith

This petition is aiming to get the Liam Williams vs Liam Smith fight result turned into a No contest.

The fight was won by Liam Smith with a blatant illegal headbutt which rendered Liam Williams unable to continue.

9. Have all the old school TV shows, kids shows, cartoons, music awards, music videos and hard to find classics avalible to stream on TV streaming to watch

This is a petition for the FCC and cable networks to bring back all the greatest old school original classic TV shows, family shows, kids shows, cartoons, movies, music videos, music awards, old school concerts, classic NBA, MLB and NFL games and events; old school fifa soccer games, old school VH1 and MTV, the old Hanna Barbara cartoons, the classic Looney Toons cartoons, old Disney movies, old kids commercials, old cartoon commercials, classic commercials and all the greatest old school hard to find shows and specials from the 40s, 50, 60, 70s, 80s, 90s and early 2000s all available to stream and watch on Sling TV, Hulu, DirecTV streaming and all the other great streaming channel devices all in a library list with all the full episodes and seasons of all the old school shows that are not shown on TV no more.

I know there are over 100 different great old school classic TV shows, family shows movies, pro sports, cartoons, music videos, music awards, VH1, MTV and more from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and early 2000s that we're cancelled and are not on cable TV anymore. And it'll take to long to name and list them all, so I'll put some article links and videos to show you some examples. And while you're at it, please also make streaming and downloading online music videos and songs available on Sling TV, Roku cable, DirecTV streaming, iTunes TV, Hulu and all the other brand new TV streaming devices too with Apple IPhone technology, picture quality, features and audio quality so that we may watch our favorite music videos and listen to our favorite songs in a library folder list too. And also, make all the classic movies, sports, cartoons, kids shows, music awards, music videos, MTV, VH1 and concert events all in a main menu list in order to select and watch along with special features. Something like this for example:

(Classic Main Menu Category Selection)

Sports: This category selection will have and show all the streamed classic NBA games, MLB games, NFL games, soccer games, old school wrestling full episodes and pay per views such as ( 80s and 90s WWF, WWF/WWE Attitude Era and Ruthless Aggression Era, old WCW wrestling, WCW: Monday NITRO and WCW: Thunder, 80s NWA wrestling, old school NJPW and Japanese pro wrestling, old AWA wrestling, old TNA from 2002-2009, wrestling society x, WWE Saturday Night Velocity, WWE Sunday Night Heat and more). All available to watch in live quality. As well as ROH wrestling, west coast wrestling connection and a few more too.

Movies: this selection category will have and show all of everyone's favorite old school original full movies in all genre types including sports movies all in live quality. Movies that are not shown on cable TV anymore and movies that are rarely shown on cable TV.

With all the special features.

And some concerts before the 80s too all in Crystal clear picture quality and HQ surround audio sound to watch and relive.

Music awards: and finally, this selection category will feature show and all the greatest five star original music and grammy awards from the old days of music, from the old school VH1, from the old school MTV and more by all the greatest original legendary mainstream music artists and bands. As well and extra special features in crystal clear picture quality and HQ surround audio sound available to select and watch again.

And one more thing. Also make an online YouTube app and Google app included in all the TV streaming services with all classic these movies, shows, sports and music for people to search for more of their favorite specific and proper classic shows, movies and more so that they can include them too if there are some they can't find in the streaming devices and packages. And make an mp3 music library in the streaming TV services like iTunes TV where people can stream and download their favorite album songs, special music, soundtrack songs and more and listen to them on their TV's too in a library folder list of songs that can fit thousands of songs and more in it.

Doing all of this and allowing all these classics and childhood memories to be included on all TV streaming services and available to stream, download and watch on TV in live crystal clear quality will really, really make you TV company people huge money and deep pockets every month and every year in each future generation! Just imagine how many five star rated viewers you people will get and gain back everyday worldwide and in the USA with something special and outstanding like this? You business people will never start losing ratings and lots of viewers again. And you 'll all help start another original old school boom period in the world, in music, on TV and in everything again and help bring back the old school days into the future decades and more. So please don't pass up this great opportunity and idea I'm offering you TV people. Make all of these available to stream, download, listen to and watch on TV for $40, $50 or $60 dollars a month for all of these old classics and even some handpicked and selected good modern shows and movies that are good today too (since there are only very few good shows and movies of today).

Try this offer to people nationwide for one decade (10 years) and see what success and kind of ratings in will bring in and draw. If it turns out successful, makes big cash and it brings in high ratings and a huge ton of viewers everyday, then you can keep this feature available for everyone to watch and have, and for you to offer permanently or for long as possible. But if for some reasons, it doesn't have much luck and no success, and if it makes very little money, gets low ratings and very low viwership: Then you can cancel it after 10 years and just stick to the current TV streaming channels, movies and services of today that you're all currently offering. But I'm sure everyone in the entire world WILL love having all the old school classics and original on streaming TV services and devices to watch and listen too again though! So it's always worth a try you know. It will be just like having a collection of dvds, music CDs and blu ray discs with all your favorite songs, movies, TV shows, music videos and more to watch and listen to. Only this time, they'll all be on streaming TV to have and watch for life. And to listen to for life as well for an affordable monthly budget price!

So let's all REALLY take back television and relive all of our original childhood classics to listen to and watch again so that TV will be fun and out of this world again like it used to be back in the old school days. Please give this idea of mine's a try and let us relive our childhoods and give all the youths and people of today who we're not alive in the old school days a chance to see our golden era childhood classics too. Thank you and I'll put some links below. Big love!

10. Reverse the Decision to Cancel Seó Spóirt on TG4

Seó Spóirt, TG4's long running sports discussion show, is to finish this April. It has been an integral part of the TG4 schedule and also a highlight of many a sports fans week in this time. We are urging TG4 and particularly Ardstiúrthóir Alan Esslemont to listen to the loyal supporters and viewers of this show, acknowledge the huge outcry since the decision was announced and restore Seó Spóirt to the weekly schedule. Many thousands of people are regular watchers of the show,and many more have watched it at some stage for its analysis, insight and humour. Please reverse this deeply unpopular decision and restore the high opinion viewers have of TG4!
***UPDATE 14/02/17: Go raibh míle maith agaibh gach éinne, thá níos mó ná dhá mhíle sínithe bailithe anois. The response to the petition has been fantastic and some of your comments about the show have been great to read. I sent a link to the petition to Alan Esslemont, an Ard-Stiúrthóir TG4. In fairness, he gave me an informative and lengthy response outlining the reasons why TG4 are ceasing to broadcast the show. However, he did seem to indicate that there are no plans to reverse the decision so I think it's important to try to continue to get people sgned up in the hope that the more we get, the greater chance there will be that they might still revisit the decision. You can also email Alan at if you wish to discuss it further with him. Keep sharing the petition as best ye can and we'll see what we can do for Dara, Gemma and everyone involved with the show. Go raibh maith agaibh as ucht bhúr iarrachtaí!

12. EA Sports FIFA

Hello my name is Francisco L. I want everyone to join me in this petition to EA Sports to include the leagues of Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Costa Rica in the FIFA video game. We have seen new leagues in almost every new release of the most popular video game in the world but we haven't seen love for the Central American region.

13. Include Samuel Maduwantha in the National u20 Junior Rugby Asiad squad

14. NHL series for PC

I've decided to create a petition about bringing NHL series back to PC platform.
I've read that they said it depends on demand so I want to give petition a chance to see if we can collect enough of names that I may send to producer, EA Canada.

With enough names I think it's possible, pretty much.


15. Johnson Fold Community Centre

After spending many hours applying for grants and funding we have reached a point where we cannot continue. It is apparent that to carry out our proposals and future projects we need a base to work from. We cannot even apply for the funding we need because we have nowhere to run the projects from. We are currently working out of two houses, struggling to find space to store our equipment and with nowhere suitable to run events from. We rely on the good nature of the church in the area to provide us with space to fundraise and hold small events, which is not desirable. In essence we will struggle to move forward, apply for grants and carry out the much needed help that our community needs.

We need a building to support our community, especially during the current economical climate, with more and more of the resident’s struggling. We would like to use the space to hold different clubs and classes for the children and adults in the community, to develop skills such as cooking, reading and academic support. We have many more plans, which we would greatly benefit the community, but we have nowhere to execute them, and now no way to apply for funding as we have no base.

16. College Athletes Should NOT Be Paid to Play

If college athletes are paid to play tuition rates would skyrocket to compensate the expenses that the colleges would endure.

Only 24 of the 230 division 1 colleges generate enough funds to cover expenses for college athletes to attend school, image that amount of money they would have to generate if we had to start paying college athelets to play a sport that they love.

17. Bring back the B teams at Laconia Middle School

As many of you know the school budget in Laconia was negatively impacted by a tax cap that, at the time, was ten years old. The decision was made to cut the B teams from the middle school, among other cuts, to balance the budget.

New Hampshire, as well as the entire country, is being faced with a major opioid addiction epidemic. In New Hampshire, the average age where kids try opioids, such as heroin, is 12 years old. The average age of the kids on the B teams at the middle school is 12 years old. These sports programs are critical to keep kids involved and engaged in their own success.

School sports require code of conduct agreements, requiring the student athletes to agree to behave at a higher standard, and to achieve grades above the minimum passing level. All sports teach kids to work together, respect authority, and help open new avenues to higher education past high school. To limit the possibilities for so many children is ludicrous.

The Laconia City Council needs to readdress this issue, and the tax cap, and find a way to bring these sports back, just as they found a way to bring the band back, which is equally important in its own right.

18. Ban Tire Crumb Rubber from Turf at San Diego Unified School District Schools

*Our children, students, athletes, and environment deserve safe, non toxic fields.
* Tire Crumb Rubber infill contains many known carcinogens and heavy metals.
*Non-toxic/organic infill is available from the turf co. our district is using and its use is growing nationwide.
*Natural turf, or even dirt, don't hurt.

San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is installing tire crumb rubber fields at many schools ( a lot of them elementary) over the next few years, A couple dozen schools are lined up to get these fields this year, and some already have them.

Crumb rubber, or tire crumb, is finely ground up (into ant size or even sand size pieces) car and truck tires. Tires contain heavy metals, known carcinogens, and other toxic substances.

There can be up to 40,000 ground up tires sprinkled loosely on one field. Our young children ages 5-10, their small developing bodies being the most vulnerable to chemical exposures, will be rolling in these fields, eating their snacks on these fields, making mountains out of these tire pellets on these fields, dropping their water bottles onto these fields, and tracking these tire pieces into our classrooms, cars, homes, and laundry machines. Our older children will be playing sports on these fields; diving to catch a ball, doing a tackle, or sliding into third base.

There is a high probability that our children could ingest these tiny sand size pieces, or get them in a wound or their eyes, as well as breathing the chemicals released into the air from the surface, which can reach temperatures of up to 140 degrees on a 90 degree day. As parents of children playing on these fields, we deserve to know, IS IT SAFE?

As of now, NOBODY can tell us it is safe for our children to be exposed to tire crumb.

There has been a cancer correlation, called a cancer ‘cluster’ by toxicologists, between soccer goalie players (whom are most prone to dermal contact and ingesting crumb rubber) that have played on crumb rubber fields and blood cancers.

Given mounting concerns about recycled rubber surfaces, several governmental agencies have recently modified their stance on the safety of crumb rubber. On February 12, 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency, Centers for Disease Control, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission unveiled an ‘Action Plan’, appointed by our federal government, with the aim of addressing data gaps, characterizing crumb rubber constituents, and assessing exposure pathways. The first draft of this study will be out by the end of 2016. According to the EPA announcement of this collaborative effort, “existing studies do not comprehensively evaluate the concerns about health risks from exposure to tire crumb.” The same conclusion was reached by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and it is addressing the risks from chemical exposures resulting from ingesting crumb rubber from artificial turf and their study will be done in June 2018.

With the lack of federal scientific studies to show a product safe, our district is installing these fields at a fast pace with no notice to parents or students, nor warning signs posted at the fields for proper cleaning after play or the restriction of food and drinks. There are labor laws protecting the installers of these fields, informing them to wear respirators, safety goggles, and gloves, but there is nothing to warn of any dangers to our children.

There are alternative infills to use vs. tire crumb rubber. These options would also be more environmentally sound, which is especially important for a school district that is close to many water sources. The turf company installing our fields has these options available. They are non- toxic and organic, using cork, coconut and rice husk. There is also the other option of going back to natural turf.

We want our children to have turf and longer playing hours outdoors, but most of all we want to be sure it is safe. Let's not let our children be the canaries in the coal mine on this one! Let's educate ourselves and others, and advocate for the health and safety of our children. Our children deserve better!

Please sign the petition (your email will not be used for any other purpose) to let our district know that you do not want them installing any more tire crumb rubber fields in SDUSD. You can also talk to your principal about what field is planned to go in at your child's school and share concerns with them. You can also contact Board of Education by email or sign up for a three minute public testimony.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

19. Fairbanks Community Indoor Park

Flyzone Alaska is the dream of Sheldon and Rebecca Thompson. Sheldon and Rebecca are both lifelong Alaskans, parents of nine children, and business owners in Fairbanks. Many years ago they saw that there was a need in Interior Alaska for a place where youth sports, health and fitness classes, and many other athletic activities could go when there is snow and cold temperatures. In early 2016, Flyzone Alaska was created with the vision of making an indoor athletic facility a reality.

The Fairbanks Community Indoor Park will be the hub for athletics for Interior Alaska providing space for youth basketball, soccer, and volleyball. The space will be ideal for tournaments, league play, camps, clinics, open play and any other programs devoted to youth health and fitness.

The 45,000 square foot, heated facility will feature two (2) state-of-the art floating hard wood floors that will be able to be configured to play basketball, indoor soccer, and volleyball. There will also be one (1) indoor green court for playing indoor soccer. Above the courts is a large loft area that will be sectioned to host 3-4 large classroom spaces for health and fitness classes. There will be a large lobby space that will house comfortable seating, concession stand and viewing areas for both parents and spectators.

23. Bring FOX Sports to Canada

Canadians used to be able to watch motorsports racing on the SPEED channel, since the elimination of the channel our cable bills were not adjusted! There has been no channel to replace the lost content for which we paid.

Allow our cable/satellite providers the US channel that offered the content that SPEED used to offer us! Canadians can't even stream the FOX sports channel on the internet since there is a geo fence in place blocking Canadian VPN addresses!

If there is no replacement channels to offer customers who bought bundles we have the right of a refund or credit!

24. Bring Back ESPN forums

ESPN had a forum for discussion of many sporting events and also a place for recruiting General Managers for your favorite fantasy sports team. As of early 2015 they closed it down forcing us to go else where to find GMs for teams.

This makes it very hard to do recruit someone from another site to come to a new site setting up all their info again. Nobody want to do that all again when they are already members on that site.

Also ESPN members moving their league to another site way easier to recruit GMs all we want is a place to contact other members of the ESPN community.

BRING BACK THE FORUMS or simply add sport chat.

25. Bring Disc Golf to Laguna Niguel Regional Park

The Laguna Niguel Disc Golf Club is proposing the installation of an 18-hole disc golf course in Laguna Niguel Regional Park. Total cost of the project is estimated at $15,000.00.

There are now more than 2000 Disc Golf courses in the United States and Canada, nearly all installed by city and county parks departments. They have found that there are few recreational activities that offer the high benefit-to-cost ratio of disc golf. Disc golf has relatively low capital and maintenance costs compared with other recreational installations, is environmentally sound, is played year-round in all climates and is enjoyed immediately even by beginners of all ages.

The installation of a disc golf course would be consistent with the stated goals of the recently revised master plan for Laguna Niguel, one of which is to “Plan for new high-quality recreation facilities and programs that provide spontaneous games and more non-organized activities to meet the needs of teenagers and adults alike.” Disc golf is also in perfect keeping with the plan's call for the “development and improvement of a system of public and private parks and recreation facilities achieved in cooperation with private community associations.”

What Is Disc Golf?
Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of hitting a ball into a hole, you throw a more streamlined looking Frisbee® disc into a supported metal basket. The goal is the same: to complete the course in the fewest number of shots. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to each basket, which is the "hole." As players progress down the fairway, they must make each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs and terrain changes in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed.

Who Can Play?
The simple answer is that everyone can. In studies measuring participation in recreational activities, "throwing a Frisbee" has consistently been a top-ten activity. A disc golf course serves a broader portion of the community than many narrower interest activities with higher cost, skill or fitness levels required to even begin to play. Men and women, young and old, families with small children -- all can play disc golf. Because disc golf is so easy to understand and enjoy, no one is excluded. Players merely match their pace to their capabilities and proceed from there.

How Much Does It Cost To Play?
Many courses are located in city or regional parks where citizens play free. Most private and several public facilities will charge up to $5 per day to play, or earn passive income from annual passes and/or fees to enter the park. The equipment itself is quite inexpensive – discs designed for golf sell for $8-$15 each and only one is needed to get started.

The installation of a disc golf course in Laguna Niguel Regional Park would benefit the surrounding community by increasing and enhancing recreational opportunities, park safety and conservation goals.

Recreational Needs: A disc golf course would provide an inexpensive form of recreation for people of all age and skill levels and be a much needed addition to the recreational facilities at Laguna Niguel Regional Park. The installation of a disc golf course would provide an important recreational resource for the schools surrounding the park, as well as for the wider community. A disc golf course would give youth in the neighborhood a healthy and challenging outlet for their energies and would allow members of the Laguna Niguel Disc Golf Club to organize clinics and youth leagues on their behalf. For the growing number of disc golfers in Laguna Niguel, the presence of a disc golf course in the city limits would obviate the need to travel to play and would give them a base from which to further promote the sport.

Safety: A disc golf course at Laguna Niguel Regional Park would increase foot traffic in the Park at random times during the day and steadily during evenings and weekends. The influx of purposeful visitors would discourage the presence of individuals who are only in the park to cause mischief and perhaps engage in crime. Areas that are infrequently used and considered unsafe would be "opened-up" by the course. As many of the attached letters from different Recreations Departments show (Annex II), the installation of a disc golf course has led to significant decreases in vandalism and litter as users have a stake in keeping the course and surrounding area clean and well-kept.

Conservation: Disc golf can be an environment-friendly sport. Unlike traditional golf, a disc golf course may not require trees to be removed; grass mowed and watered daily, plants uprooted or non-native species planted. Many courses can be designed to fit into the existing flora of a park like Laguna Niguel Regional Park. The impact of a disc golf course on the surrounding area is minimal. Each hole has multiple pin placements, ensuring that no one area gets constant foot traffic (this has the added benefit of providing new challenges to players). In addition, disc golfers overall tend to take great pride in where they play, helping reduce potential litter on the course. In the long-term, a disc golf course would also help in the preservation of the park by giving young people in the neighborhood a stake in its preservation and protection.

Economics: A deluxe 18-hole disc golf course with two sets of tees, professional signs and baskets can be purchased and installed for under $15,000, less than the cost of a single tennis or basketball court. An 18-hole course can serve more than 100 people at any time, compared with a tennis court (4 maximum) or basketball court (10 maximum). The cumulative square footage of 27 x 60 sq. ft hard surface tee pads is also less than either a basketball or tennis court.

26. Professional Wrestling Should be Recognized as a Sport

Professional Wrestling is one of the most dangerous things in the world to compete in.

You have to train, there are millions of fans, and it is physical competition.

What else makes up a sport?

27. New skatepark in Frederick MD

Frederick Maryland has a population of roughly quater of a million people and only 2 skateparks close or in the to the city.

With lots of illegal street skating going on in downtown a new skatepark in one of our more populated areas such as downtown Frederick or Amber Meadows would cut down on the amount of illegal street skating.

If you could just sign and be prepared to donate 1 dollar, I along with many other skaters would be very appreciative.

Thank you for your time.

30. OHSRA to allow bull riders

At a National Level, bull riding is not a sport allowed for girls in the Ohio High School Rodeo Association. My daughter wants to compete in bull riding just as the boys do.

When I contacted OHSRA to enroll my daughter as a memeber, it was explained to me that girl bull riding was not allowed. This is a rule at the National Level, is what I was told by the contact person (Tiffany) on their website.

I was also told that the best way to get this overturned is to petition it. I am fighting for my daughters right to do what she loves. She has been riding for almost 3 years and has won two championship belt buckles.
