Fan’s petition to kick Greg Hardy out of NFL draws over 70K signatures

One man really wants Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy out of the NFL.

And from the signatures gathered on a petition he created, it looks like over 70,000 other NFL fans agree with him.

Freddy Martinez, a Philadelphia Eagles fan from Roy, Utah, created a petition on as a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, pleading for the two to remove Hardy from the league.

The petition sought to gather 75,000 signatures. The New York Daily News reports the petition gathered over 35,000 signatures in the first day.

It has now gathered over 71,000 co-signers…and counting.

"Hardy is playing in the NFL today with little consequence for his actions," Martinez wrote in the petition. "That must change: The Cowboys should immediately release him, and the NFL should make sure that he never plays another game in the league again.

"As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I am having an increasingly hard time supporting a league that gives players the privilege to play in the NFL despite these kind of actions. With the evidence publicly released, the next step is absolutely clear: Greg Hardy must go right now."
