Petition Tag - world cup
We want to introduce classes: Under-14, Under-16 and Under-18 in Enduro, Supercross and Quads.
We want a Youth Cup: Under-14, Under-16 and Under-18 for Enduro, Supercross and Quads.
Although not allowed, Bryce Lawrence refereed a game with bias. His calls, led to the outcome of Australia (his native team) being in final. His father is also an official in IRB so he is beyond reproach. S.A. had 70 percent possession of the ball and still lost on bias and prejudice calls. Any one with knowledge of the sport knows and see s clearly that this was unsporting, and cheating.
Rugby has remained among only few sports with honor, and code, allowing this game to stand goes against this. although never been done, we believe extenuating circumstances call for this first time, since you started off illegally with a bias ref and finished it by standing by idle and letting this disgrace of a game stand. its a world cup semi final, done every 4 yrs, surely due to that alone, leeway should be given.
I firmly believe fifa is killing the sport, keep corruption out. Bribery, lies and backroom deals are all things that relate to fifa. Even David Cameron has said fifa's dealings are “murky”.
With fifa officials being probed and qatar hosting a world cup I think it's time to turn our back on fifa.
The expose by the British media and the BBC Panorama programme on the 29th of November 2010 of the corruption within the FIFA Executive and the fact that they are largely ignoring it.
Stretford-End.com are setting up this petition to Manchester United Football Club, its players and employees, and the English Football Association to alert them to the already public situation of the families of former players Nobby Stiles and George Best.
Both players represented United with distinction yet both players medals and other mementoes are due to be sold at auction due to the families hitting financial difficulties. Nobby Stiles collection will be sold at Convery Auctions in Edinburgh on October 27th and George Bests at Bonham’s auction house in Chester on October 20th.
Tanya Vanessa Thomas was unfairly excluded from the SA side that will represent South Africa at the World Cup in Ireland in 2011.
Tanya Thomas has represented SA as a junior player and she has represented SA at youth level in the world cup in 2005. She is currently SA's no.1 lady player for the last 2 years running.
Tanya represented SA at ZoneVI early this year as well as last year, and she just recently played in the SA National Championships where she out performed everyone.
From these results the top two ladies were to be selected to represent SA to Play in the World Cup in Ireland in 2011.
She was very surprisingly not selected, which is totally unacceptable as she has represented her country with pride and dignity.
Stats will be posted here shortly...
Since becoming FIFA President in June 1998, Sepp Blatter has committed innumerable crimes against the sport of football, blatantly disrespecting the game, its players, its supporters, and its officials.
Blatter has been involved in several scandals:
1. Allegations of corruption and financial irregularities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA#Allegations_of_financial_irregularities)
2. Blatant sexism towards female footballers in 2004 when he suggested that women should "wear tighter shorts and low cut shirts... to create a more female aesthetic" and attract more male fans
3. Refusal to implement modern goal-line technology to take pressure off referees and ensure fair play
The Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) was formed in 1895. It is one of the world's oldest football associations.
In 1997, the GFA applied to FIFA for membership. In 1999, FIFA confirmed that the GFA conformed to the requirements, thus handing the file on to the UEFA. In 2000, UEFA and FIFA conducted a joint inspection of the football related facilities and, in consequence, produced a report stating "The FA of Gibraltar fulfils all requisite statutory conditions for admission to UEFA”.
In August 2000, the report to UEFA leaked to the Spanish media, and in consequence, both the Spanish Government and its political parties started a campaign to prevent the GFA's application from succeeding on purely political grounds. The Spanish objections were solely based on their claim of Sovereignty on Gibraltar. None of their objections were based on any sport criteria.
In December 2000, the Executive Committee of UEFA decided to appoint three independent judges to consider the legality and validity of the Spanish claims. The independent legal panel issued a report on August 2001 rejecting the Spanish objections and stating "the GFA is entitled to provisional admission as a member of UEFA”.
The applying continues and you can carry on reading on this link... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibraltar_Football_Association
Please read as there is a lot more information there.
COME ON ENGLAND!!!!
The England national football team represents England in international association football and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England. Although most national teams worldwide represent a sovereign state, the four Home Nations which form the United Kingdom are each represented separately in international tournaments, except at the Olympics. England's home ground is Wembley Stadium in London and their head coach is Fabio Capello.
England are one of seven national teams to have won the FIFA World Cup, which they did in 1966 when they hosted the finals. They defeated West Germany 4–2 in extra time in the final. Since then their best performance at a World Cup was reaching the semifinals in 1990, where they lost to West Germany on penalties. They reached the semifinals of the UEFA European Championship in 1968 and 1996. They were the most successful of the home nations in the British Home Championship with 54 wins (including 20 shared wins) before the competition was suspended in 1984. They remain a prominent team on the global stage, rarely dropping outside of the top ten on both the FIFA and Elo rankings.
Well you have all heard about how were not supposed to be allowed to wear our England shirts or how we're not allowed to fly mighty England flag due to other ethic minorities not being happy about it during the world cup season.
For the past fifteen years there has been a RAPID increase in murder, rape and all other incredibly savage acts and crime in general. South Africa is currently NUMBER ONE on in the world for murder, rape and all crime and therefore earned the name "CRIME CAPITAL OF THE WORLD".
More then THREE THOUSAND FARMERS have been murdered since 1994 and nearly more then 50 South Africans are murdered PER DAY! A BIG portion of that are CHILDREN that were RAPED TO DEATH!
These SAVAGES are seldom caught and only a few gets captured and convicted. Most of these murderers actually prefer being in jail. They receive clean beds, three meals and free education if they so desire.
This becomes another burden on the taxpayer. With other words the law-abiding citizens of South Africa actually are then the ones getting punished for the murderer 's heinous acts! More then 600 South Africans have actually successfully gained refugee status in other countries! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS South Africans have already fled the country in fear of their lives! This resulted in the ultimate "Brain Drain" of the country.
Instead of keeping the LAW-ABIDING, EDUCATED citizens of South Africa IN the country, the Lack of the South African Government's involvement and lack of proper punishment has secured South Africa 's first place as a MURDER/RAPE/CRIME - CAPITAL IN THE WORLD!
I am of the strong opinion that Capital Punishment for murder should be reintroduced to South Africa! Amnesty International states that the Death Penalty 'violates the right of the life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.' The question - What about the lives and rights of the victims? Were they not entitled to the Right of Life and Prohibition of Torture?
The person that takes the life savagely of another should no longer benefit from the protections afforded under any legislation. The failure of the government to actually ensure the citizens of South Africa a safer country is no longer expectable.
A Jail term is no longer a deterrent. BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY IN SOUTH AFRICA! PLEASE VISIT our pages on FACEBOOK -
EYE ON SOUTH AFRICA
Football is important to the Haitian people. After what they have just been through, after what they have just survived, what better way to bring a smile to their faces than by dedicating this year's World Cup to them?
On 16/12/09, the City of Leicester was left shocked and devastated after The Football Association of England decided against including Leicester on their list of potential cities for the 2018 World Cup, should England win the rights to host the prestigeous tournament.
Leicester had been expected to be on the list as it is rich in history, has a wide, diverse range of nationalities within it and is the second biggest City in the English Midlands, behind Birmingham.
However, The FA decided to choose the footballing non-entities of Milton Keynes, Bristol and Plymouth ahead of Leicester, as well as Leicesters local rivals Nottingham. This despite the fact that Leicester had a much stronger bid.
In two weeks time the FA will decide on which cities it will put forward with its bid to host the World Cup in 2018. The South is not represented! After Pompey pulled out it is left to SOUTHAMPTON to represent the South (Milton Keynes is hardly the south) as a host city for England's 2018 World Cup bid.
We weren't on the original list due to Southampton FC's financial woes in the summer but now we're set to step up and be counted.
The FA simply has to allow the city to bid. We have the facilities, both in footballing terms and the ability to welcome the world's football fans to our great city.
On November 18th, 2009 Ireland took on France with a chance to qualify for the World Cup.
In the final seconds, however, France was allowed to get away with a blatant handball that caused Ireland to lose the game and any chance of qualifying for the World Cup as well.
Since then many surveys have been taken, all with the overwhelming majority crying for a rematch.
On Wednesday 18th November Ireland was robbed of its chance to qualify for the world cup by a blatant and obvious foul.
Not since 1966 has England hosted a football World Cup.
The game was invented in England and the Premier League is clearly the best league in the world.
In 2018 the World Cup should be in England.
Recently Jack Warner the Vice President of FIFA issued a statement containing
as key points:
"If the World Cup were to go to Europe, I'm quite sure, with the English luck as
it is, they won't get it," Warner told BBC World Service.
"There are moves to give it to England. I must fight that."
"Nobody in Europe likes England. England invented the sport but has never
made any impact on world football."
This has already caused a massive uproar on the BBC's 606 messanger boards
and all over England. It is percieved as racist, wholley inappropriate and a
disgrace to FIFA.
In 2006 he was involved in a scandal which even FIFA admitted violated their
code of ethics and no action was taken except to impose a fine totalling the
profits he made from the scandal. He has still only payed a quarter of this fine
despite constant reminders from FIFA and still no action has come.
Amnesty International (AI) (a leading human rights watch dog, http://web.amnesty.org/) has started a campaign titled "Sri Lanka: Play by the Rules" to be held at the Cricket World Cup 2007.
However the ICC has said they will not get involved in the campaign and not allow them to enter cricket grounds to carry out this campaign, but the campaign is active. This petition is against AI's plans to invade sporting events to voice their opinion.
Having this kind of campaign not only takes away the beauty of the Cricket World Cup but it also demoralizes the Sri Lankan cricket team. This petition is against any future plans by the AI to use sporting events as platforms to voice their concerns.
This petition is not against the alegations they have raised against the government of Sri Lanka or the LTTE (That is a different argument altogether).

Ok, I hate sport I admit it but I feel the BBC makes life hell for anyone like me.
I don't want to ban sport on tv because I understand that it brings joy to millions but I do feel the fact that the BBC cancels everything for sport unfair.
This petition is to try and get the BBC to create a new channel to give people who want ordinary tv a chance to watch just that.
(If you want proof of what I mean look at the World Cup broadcasting and Wimbledon, the whole TV schedule stops just for them)
