Pac-12 player group threatens to opt out, makes list of demands on injustice, safety

A group of Pac-12 football players from multiple schools is threatening to opt out of both preseason camps and games until its negotiations with the league regarding concerns about racial injustice, their safety during the coronavirus pandemic and other demands are completed.

A text message obtained by ESPN says the group's goal is to "obtain a written contract with the Pac- 12 that legally ensures we are offered the following protections and benefits."

The group's list of demands, according to the text message, includes safe play amid the pandemic, fighting racial injustice, securing economic rights and fair compensation, protecting all sports and obtaining long-term health insurance.

People familiar with the group's mission told ESPN that the central issue it wants to address with the league and its schools is racial injustice.

3. Even if fall football season starts,

my prediction is that it will end inside of three weeks. Unless all players, coaches, and staff are all totally quarantined, with no outside contact, for the entire season. Which isn't going to happen. Especially at the college level.

And I'll give major league baseball at most three more weeks before it shuts down completely. And it will probably be more like ten days.
