Target: NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Troy Vincent
Goal: Thank the NFL for punishing the New England Patriots for deflating footballs in an attempt to gain an advantage.
During the 2015 NFL playoffs, the New England Patriots reportedly deflated several footballs in an attempt to gain an edge against the opposing team. The NFL has since investigated, addressed, and properly punished these actions. This success is in part due to the efforts of the public and petition sites like ForceChange for voicing their disgust regarding cheating in the world of professional sports. Thank the NFL for handling this case with integrity and professionalism.
The New England Patriots went on to advance in the 2015 playoffs and win the Super Bowl. After the investigation, the NFL found evidence to prove the New England Patriots and Tom Brady knew about this incident of cheating prior to the game. Both have repeatedly denied any knowledge of the incident, leading fans everywhere to question their integrity.
The NFL has acted quickly and efficiently and done everything in its power to ensure this act is properly punished. Tom Brady is suspended for the first four games of the 2015-16 season and the New England Patriots are fined one million dollars and have lost two future draft picks. The National Football League has set an excellent example for other leagues to follow, establishing trust between the league and its loyal fans.
Please sign this petition to congratulate the NFL on its successful investigation and for properly punishing the New England Patriots and Tom Brady.
Dear Mr. Vincent,
The public has expressed outrage over the actions of the New England Patriots during the 2015 playoffs when several footballs were deflated. The NFL has responded extremely well and properly punished both the team and Tom Brady. Thank you for acting quickly and efficiently and for establishing a strong sense of integrity in the NFL.
The Patriots will feel the full weight of their actions and the league has demonstrated its renewed commitment to honesty and integrity. The league has set an excellent example for others to follow, demonstrating the consequences of cheating and dishonesty.
The world of professional sports is often known for its ruthless tactics. The NFL has demonstrated quite the opposite, highlighting the importance of justice and honesty. I congratulate you on a successful investigation and for properly punishing the New England Patriots and Tom Brady.
