SAN ANTONIO (CBSDFW.COM) – Sports fans from coast-to-coast believe the “Romo curse” is real. To prevent a recurrence, a Spurs fan is petitioning the White House to keep Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo away from San Antonio for the remainder of the NBA Playoffs.

The petition, which was filed on Friday (but has since been removed), states the following:

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!

Romo’s “curse” has been well documented, most recently making its way to Los Angeles for Game 6 of the Clippers-Thunder series.

Naturally, the host Clippers lost, despite the fact that Romo was there to support Oklahoma City.

The hometown Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars have suffered similar fates in games which Romo attended.

Duke basketball, SMU basketball, and Wisconsin basketball can all make similar (yet debatable) claims.

The Romo curse isn’t real (or is it?), but Spurs fans are nonetheless working to keep Romo out of the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

There’s now word on whether or not fans are also attempting to keep Ray Allen away as well — an effort which could actually matter, and certainly did in 2013.
