Chiefs Fans to Owner: Fire Larry Johnson!!

11/4/2009 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Larry JohnsonLarry Johnson is roughly 80 yards away from becoming the all time leading rusher for the Kansas City Chiefs -- but after his anti-gay slur scandal last week, Chiefs fans want him off the team before he has a chance to make history.

Hundreds of loyal Chiefs fans have signed a petition, begging the team owner to keep Larry Johnson's name out of the Chiefs Hall of Fame forever.

The petition reads:

"Larry has been a black eye on the organization ... We are asking you, as fans of this team, this organization, and of the pride that this city has in the Chiefs, please deactivate Larry Johnson.

Please do not let his name sit atop the all-time rushing leaders in Kansas City Chiefs history."


We spoke to one of the fans behind the petition, Andy Phelan, who tells us: "I would love it if we never see Larry Johnson in a Chiefs uniform again ... He's a cancer in the locker room."

Wow    

We have a screwed up mess when something like this can even be acknowledged in the press. I guarantee gays started this so called petition. Michael Vick killed dogs and i feel he should never be mentioned again among sports circles. He should be banished to a no kill shelter to clean up the dog pens. A fitting punishment for what he did.
This guy just said a "word," much like my gay brother in law says to his gay friends. In ten years we will all be going around with tape on our mouths serving every whim of the next latest taboo thing. Wow!!! If some countries everyone knows what will happen if they run their mouths too much or complain to much so they all just keep their mouths shut. It's a beautiful thing...minding your own business.

I do not see how this will hurt the NFL's reputation, come on the league is full of thugs & a##holes, but hey if they won't let Rush own part of a team, I hope they get rid of every player who says anything offensive in the future & ban J-Lo & Fergie from owning any part of a team as well. I am done watching NFL, they are being political on their decisions, I will stick to college & high school ball.

This is not the real story...Johnson has been acting like a psycho since coming to the team. He gets in trouble off the field and shoots off his mouth repeatedly. As mentioned on other posts recently, he has been in trouble for altercations with fans like spitting in a girl's face in a bar. He twitters remarks about the head coach. He really doesn't have all his marbles. He doesn't want to be in KC and KC fans don't want him. Saying the f word is minor compared to most of what he has said and done since stepping foot in our otherwise tranquil city.

This is completely unfair! What a bunch of jerks trying to get someone fired over a WORD. I doubt they are "Loyal Fans" Just a bunch of Gay activists trying to take someone's livelihood away. He apologized, and was punished. LET IT GO!!!

I don't like what he said. But he has the right to say and think what he wants. - Free speech must apply to everyone or it applies to no one.

This has nothing to do with him using a gay slur. Larry Johnson has been a tool for four years, very unproductive on the field, and just a mess. If he were actually playing well, nobody would be calling for his dismissal. He's well paid and is playing like a punk. End of story. GLADD had no influence whatsoever and this is not a victory for the homosexuals.
