Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tends to be a bad-luck charm when attending sporting events. While gracing the Duke Blue Devils, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks and, most recently, the Los Angeles Clippers with his presence, the teams he was rooting for lost.

Now that the San Antonio Spurs are taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, Spurs fans are pushing to keep him away. In fact, there is now an official White House petition to ban him from Spurs games, according to Project Spurs, saying:

Tony Romo hasn’t been a good luck charm for the Dallas Cowboys. In fact he has been somewhat of a curse in Dallas and for any home sports team he watches from the stands. This is well documented. Just ask Duke, Clippers, Dallas Stars, Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks even the TNT show Dallas. Here in San Antonio we want our Spurs to win the entire enchilada. Tony Romo will only bring his curse into the AT&T Center and his mojo will make the Spurs lose. In fact we should send him into Russia. That Putin mess would be so over. Please America let’s stand together and stop the Tony Romo curse. Go Spurs go!

As the Spurs look to win another NBA title, fans are hoping Romo will stay far away from the arena.
