I'm a 12 year, (4 tickets per year) season ticket holder. I will be signing this petition because Larry Johnson has never cared about his teamates, coaches, or fans. I don't believe a good number of atheletes actually care about those variables but they must act like it. They are in the public eye and are role models for their city. Larry Johnson has never been anyone to look up to. He doesn't deserve to be the chiefs player with the most rushing yards ever.

I don't feel he deserves to represent the Chiefs or the area in the record books. Anyone can say they learned something from a situation. Bounce him out immediately. I'd be happy to sign petition.
His yardage came on the backs of the tremendous line the Chiefs (HAD).

Why would the fans want someone who shows such discontent about his team and the city he lives in the privilege of earning a record here. Much less beating out Priest Holmes? I don't think it should be allowed to happen.

He did this... He cannot blame anyone else for his actions.

The Chiefs should just change their name to the Chumps if Loser Johnson becomes the all-time leading rusher in Kansas City Chiefs history.

Seriously, are you going to let one person wipe out decades of loyal fans' support? Nobody likes Loser Johnson, and the Chiefs Kingdom will dwindle significantly if he obtains this rushing record.

WE sold the stadium out for 17 years in a row. I dare you to mess with us. The Chiefs are nobody without the Chiefs Kingdom.

I'm pretty sure even if the petition does nothing to sway the upper management, that O-line he runs behind coupled with Johnsons consistent lack of performance will be all the "signatures" he will need to never pass that milestone.

I can't believe we let him stay over Jared Allen!?!?!?! It is the equivalent of letting Derrick Thomas go in his prime. Yes Jared did some bad things but what has LJ given us? whining, complaining, giving up falling down after getting a hand on him after he hits 2 yards. And what happens when he gets a free lane? He trips on himself and falls over because he doesn't want to help this team he wants his 2.7 ypc so that we will get sick of him and want him off. As far as I am concerned good riddance. I think Pioli and Haley are doing a great job, I am finally excited about being a fan again. I think we are headed in the right direction. Remember it doesn't happen in one day people. Keep up the good work and I look forward to many great years to come.

Having been a chiefs for some time I find this absolutely ridiculous. The whole KC football thing has become a circus long past its prime. Put a fork in the KC franchise and move on to greener pastures.

After reading the comments on the petition I think its more about the KC current Standings then it is about his comments on Tweeter. So why don't we make the issue about the what the real unrest is about. Why, because it probably wouldn't be in the News. Really this is RiDICULOUS!

KC fans are the biggest cry babies I have ever seen. If a kicker misses a field goal, let's get rid of him. If a D-back misses a tackle, let's get rid of him. Larry Johnson (like him or not) is a good back, if gays, h----, f---, or qu---- don't like being called names just get back into the closet.

A good back? Who has been in his uniform all year then? An imposter? When they had an awesome line, he ran well. When things get tough, he can't handle it, and resorts to being a thug. The only bad thing I see about cutting him is that you know another team will grab him, and he doesn't lose anything at all.

I would like to see him suspended for the year with no pay. That won't happen, the union already has him getting paid for sitting out 1 of the games. Hopefully, they can find an appropriate punishment that will cost him enough to hurt.

Good riddance to this classless, moody loser. He's done nothing on the field the past couple of years and carries a woeful 2.7 yd. average!
