Dameshek's epic twitter meltdown (hilarious)

Anyone contacted NFL.com and seen if they plan on finishing this?
Don't know how far this will go but my son sent an email to nfl.com:
1. Your Contact Us in-page popup for Other does not work in Chrome or IE8.
2. As a PSL owner with the Carolina Panthers, I do not appreciate the
response Dave Dameshek has given for the Panthers' having been voted
Greatest Uniform in NFL History. On Twitter, his negativity towards
the fans has taken a good-natured voting competition and turned it
into a personal affront to those fans who took the time to vote for
what they perceive to be the greatest uniform.
Disturbing to me is that, had a team with an historically larger fan
base won, he would have lauded their fans , no matter the number of
votes cast or how they were cast. The conditions of the vote allowed
for more than one vote per person, and so obviously that was how we
won. Should that fact take away from our having won? Would it in any
other competition where a strong show of fan support is desired and
provided by any base, let alone a mid-market team's?
That someone of Mr. Dameshek' position would refuse to acknowledge a
fervent fan base's accomplishment is an affront to all non-historic
teams who are trying to obtain relevance in a league where the
dominant teams have been so decade after decade.
I apologize for this long, winding form submission, but as a fan of a
team who has only a short history in this league, I was excited to see
us doing so well in a league-wide competition which had a shout-out on
the NFL Network, only to have the administrator of the competition so
thoroughly deride the winners. I do not care if Mr. Dameshek knows
players or management of the Panthers, if his conduct toward an irate
fan base (due to his own refusal to acknowledge their accomplishments)
is as negative as it is. Hell, he even told voters to vote for the
other team in his video-- who does that?!
Hell, maybe we need to start an email campaign. A cool, rational campaign.
