Normally, we wouldn’t cover sports related stories here but since I’m an avid Red Bulls fan here in New York, I couldn’t help but get behind this story. Luke Rodgers has played one season with the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer in the USA, and before he even arrived he had some Visa issues. Rodgers went on to have a great first year with MLS and was nominated for the Newcomer of the Year Award with the league. Now, with the Visa issuance being delayed yet again and an appeal hearing coming down sometime next week, it’s an important time for Rodgers. Here is how you can help.
Set up by Ian Erickson, a Red Bulls fan, a petition was created to give Luke Rodgers some leverage in his appeal meeting at the US Embassy in London in early March. In under a week, the petition has generated 420 signatures so far and the desired goal of 1,000 would be much better. Now here is your chance to make a difference for a player who works hard, has a family to take care of, and deserves the right to be here in this country. Isn’t this the “Land of the Free” after all? Please sign and spread the word! Facebook, Twitter, or any other social networking site to get the word out. Thanks!blog comments powered by Disqus
