STOP TANKING. REFORM DRAFT LOTTERY.
Drew Cohen | 458 signatures
If you're not a Heat or Pacers fan, or don't live west of Chicago, you're being sold an empty shell of a season, and an empty promise of a future, given the mixed record of draft picks (just ask Cavs fans). We understand why teams tank, but we want a new draft system that incentivizes winning and helps teams rebuild.
CUT A DEAL. KEEP THE RAMS IN STL.
Join us and sign this petition to Rams Owner, Stan Kroenke. Tell him finding a solution for a new stadium and a permanent home in St. Louis is more important than trying to squeeze a dollar more out of the franchise and playing hostage with threats to move. Let's cut a deal now, and keep the Rams in St. Louis.

FINE AND SUSPEND CLIPPERS OWNER,
DONALD STERLING FOR RACIST COMMENTS.
Recordings have surfaced of Clippers Owner, Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend to not bring African-Americans to Clippers games and that he does not want it broadcast that she is "associating with black people," including Magic Johnson. Magic responded by saying "It's a shame that Donald Sterling feels this way about African-Americans." Sign the petition and have the NBA send a signal: this racism has no place in the NBA.
STOP THE DEFACTO BLACKOUT. RETURN GAMES TO LA TV.
LA DODGERS PRESIDENT STAN KASTEN:
Due to a recent spat between cable providers, most of us have not been able to watch the team we love this season. The Dodgers and Time Warner Cable created a new sports network that various cable and satellite providers around Los Angeles are not carrying, leaving an estimated seven in 10 viewers unable to watch games. Sign the petition and tell the Dodgers' President: broker a deal and stop the defacto blackout.

Now that Qatar's bribery has been detailed, its time for a new look at who should host the 2022 World Cup. FIFA should listen to football fans and consider better host locations without the scandal, forced labor conditions, and weather problems.
RE-VOTE FOR 2022 WORLD CUP LOCATION. QATAR BRIBED FOR CUP.
FIFA President, Sepp Blatter:
FansRising is supporting the CrowdFunding effort launched by five Clippers fans to crowdfund the purchase of the Clippers. While their goal is high, even a more modest sum of fan ownership would send a strong signal to the NBA and future ownership group. If one million NBA fans and Americans fed-up with Sterling's racist ownership, each bought a share for $100, fans could join with a larger ownership/investor group and could own a significant stake in the team.
FANS: BUY THE LA CLIPPERS
Instead of packing in games all in the same time slots -- and leading to the inevitable sprint of finished all between 3:45 and 4:15pm ET -- why not stagger the start times of games throughout each NFL Sunday? March Madness uses this approach -- spreading out start times throughout the day, giving viewers a chance to catch the exciting finishes of each game.
STAGGER GAMES ON NFL SUNDAY

The Big Ten tournament has no place on the East Coast. The move is a blatant play for more money, leaving the bulk of Big Ten fans forced to travel hundreds of miles to watch their teams play. One year is okay -- but move the tourney back to Chicago or Indianapolis.

Marijuana is not a PED. It is only a problem for the NFL because the NFL insists on making it a problem. Why should Browns fans be denied a year of their star receiver because of an outdated, arcane rule that fans could care less about?
