Football fans were on their feet waiting for the NFL season to begin on Thursday.

But when Ryan Seacrest stepped on the field to kick off the 2013 season, a roaring "boo" was heard throughout the stadium.

The day after the big game wasn't as much about the Broncos beating the Ravens 49-27 as it was about Ryan Seacrest destroying the start of the season.

At least according to a group of people petitioning President Obama to prohibit the "American Idol" host from appearing on any sports broadcast in the U.S.

The "Americans Seeking Protection from Ryan Seacrest Act," posted on, reads:

We cannot allow this to continue. Please ask President Obama to lead the effort to have Congress draft and successfully pass the "Americans Seeking Protection from Ryan Seacrest Act" which would prohibit Ryan Seacrest from appearing on any sports broadcast airing in the United States.

In order for the White House to review and respond to the petition, it needs to garner a minimum of 100,000 signatures by Oct. 6.

Good luck.
