#WeWantToPlay

#WeWantToPlay

We, the football players of the Big Ten, together with the fans and supporters of college football, request that the Big Ten Conference immediately reinstate the 2020 football season. Allow Big Ten players/teams to make their own choice as to whether they wish to play or opt out this fall season. Allow Big Ten players/teams who choose to opt out of playing a fall season to do so without penalty or repercussion.

Why is this important?

We want to play. We believe that safety protocols have been established and can be maintained to mitigate concerns of exposure to Covid 19. We believe that we should have the right to make decisions about what is best for our health and our future. Don’t let our hard work and sacrifice be in vain. #LetUsPlay!


Reasons for signing

  • Players worked too hard to have this decision to play taken out of their hands. Let them decide.
  • Players are safer in the program. They have trained too hard to not be able to have the choice wether to play or not.
  • If they can go to in person classes on a campus with thousands then a season can happen
