• Former Patriots Player Thinks Obama Can Fire Roger Goodell

    Surely you’ve heard by now that the National Football League has decided to suspend New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for four games after it was concluded that Brady more than likely had some knowledge that footballs were being illegally deflated.

    There’s surely been no shortage of coverage about the situation. And people from sports to politics are chiming in and offering their opinions on Brady’s suspension.

    Probably the craziest idea was tossed out yesterday by former Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins who said he’d like to start a White House petition calling for President Obama to fire NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

    “I got a piece of paper here and I’m going to see how many I can get to sign it, to see if we can get Roger Goodell fired,” Wiggins said Monday.

    “We can get 100,000 signatures for that?” Wiggins asked his co-anchor who said, “100,000 signatures and I think the president has to get involved. Isn’t that how petitions work?”

    No, You idiots.

    In order to receive an official White House response, a petition must garner 100,000 signatures within 30 days.

    Moreover, Obama has no authority to fire Roger Goodell.

    If only these idiots cared about actual issues facing the country as they did about some soft footballs, we’d be a lot better off than we are right now.

    Worse still, I’m sure President ESPN will be adding his two cents to this ridiculous circus as soon as he reads about it in the news.
