Pac-12 group threatens to opt out of season, demands player safety and more



A group of Pac-12 football players from multiple schools is threatening to opt out of camps and games this season unless the conference negotiates with them on issues like racial injustice, player safety amid the coronavirus pandemic and more, according to ESPN.

ESPN obtained a text message stating the reports the group aims to “obtain a written contract with the Pac- 12 that legally ensures we are offered the following protections and benefits.” Their list of demands also includes “securing economic rights and fair compensation, protecting all sports and obtaining long-term health insurance.” The biggest issue the group reportedly seeks to address is racial injustice.
