As the revised college football schedules get settled and commissioners attempt to put together a season, the voice of the player has been distinctly missing from the public dialogue. a3RLive体育网

随着修改后的大学橄榄球日程表尘埃落定,委员们试图安排一个赛季,这位球员的声音显然已经从公众对话中消失了。a3RLive体育网

That could change this week, as a seemingly ambitious effort from players within the Pac-12 appears to aim to help give them a voice. a3RLive体育网

这种情况本周可能会改变,因为Pac-12内部玩家看似雄心勃勃的努力似乎旨在帮助给予他们发言权。a3RLive体育网

A graphic obtained by Yahoo Sports on Saturday has been distributed among players in the league. “Our goal is to obtain a written contract with the Pac-12 that legally ensures we are offered the following protections and benefits.” a3RLive体育网

雅虎体育(Yahoo Sports)周六获得的一张图片已经在联赛球员中分发。“我们的目标是与Pac-12签订书面合同,从法律上确保向我们提供以下保护和福利。”a3RLive体育网

The graphic then lists the following:*Ensure safe play during COVID-19*Fight racial injustice*Secure economic rights and fair compensation*Protect all sports*Obtain long-term health insurance a3RLive体育网

然后,图表列出了以下内容:*确保新冠肺炎期间的安全比赛*与种族不公正作斗争*确保经济权利和公平补偿*保护所有运动*获得长期健康保险。a3RLive体育网

The graphic specifically targeted football players in the Pac-12 and promises a “public announcement” of what’s upcoming on Aug. 3. Whether or not anything materializes and what specifics the players end up asking for is a source of great wonderment around the league. The notion of players messaging each other has circulated throughout the Pac-12 for the past month, but coaches and school administrators have struggled to find details. (ESPN first reported on the effort on Saturday.) a3RLive体育网

这张图片专门针对Pac-12的足球运动员,并承诺将在8月3日“公开宣布”即将发生的事情。无论有没有什么事情发生,以及球员们最终要求的是什么细节,这是整个联盟的一个巨大奇迹。在过去的一个月里,球员相互发短信的想法在Pac-12中流传开来,但教练和学校管理人员一直在努力寻找细节。(ESPN于周六首次报道了这一努力。)。a3RLive体育网

The graphic says that the group of players “are unifying Pac-12 football players to opt-out of all Pac-12 fall camps & football games until our negotiations with the Pac-12 end.” The so-called negotiations have yet to begin, as the Pac-12 confirmed to Yahoo Sports on Saturday afternoon that they’d yet to hear from the group. The Pac-12 also said in a statement that none of the athletic departments in the league had heard from the group. a3RLive体育网

图中说,这群球员“正在团结Pac-12橄榄球运动员,选择退出所有Pac-12秋季训练营和足球比赛,直到我们与Pac-12的谈判结束。”所谓的谈判还没有开始,因为Pac-12在周六下午向雅虎体育证实,他们还没有收到该组织的消息。Pac-12还在一份声明中表示,联盟中没有一个体育部门收到过该组织的消息。a3RLive体育网

The size of the movement is unknown, and it’s also uncertain if it will include star players who can use their status to amplify the message. Yahoo Sports spoke to more than a dozen coaches, assistants and players in the Pac-12 the past 48 hours about the movement. The general consensus among that group was that the number of players wasn’t overwhelming and their objectives were unclear. a3RLive体育网

这场运动的规模尚不清楚,也不确定是否会包括可以利用自己的地位来放大这一信息的明星球员。在过去的48小时里,雅虎体育就这一运动与Pac-12中的十几名教练、助手和球员进行了交谈。这一群体的普遍共识是,球员的数量并不是压倒性的,他们的目标也不明确。a3RLive体育网

“As we have clearly stated with respect to our fall competition plans, we are, and always will be, directed by medical experts, with the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff always the first priority,” the Pac-12 said in a statement. “We have made it clear that any student-athlete who chooses not to return to competition for health or safety reasons will have their scholarship protected." a3RLive体育网

Pac-12在一份声明中表示:“正如我们在秋季比赛计划方面明确表示的那样,我们现在是,而且永远都会是由医学专家指导的,我们的学生运动员、教练和工作人员的健康、安全和福祉永远是第一位的。”“我们已清楚表明,任何因健康或安全原因而选择不重返比赛的学生运动员,其奖学金将受到保护。”a3RLive体育网

Multiple Pac-12 coaches contacted by Yahoo were aware of the potential of some type of movement gathering in the league. But throughout Friday and Saturday, they had more questions than specifics. One Pac-12 coach told Yahoo Sports on Saturday night that a player on his team assured him recently the movement wasn’t the treatment of the individual schools as much as was “the system” that the players aimed to change. a3RLive体育网

雅虎联系的多名Pac-12教练都意识到了联盟中某种类型的运动聚集的潜力。但在整个周五和周六,他们有更多的问题,而不是细节。周六晚上,一位Pac-12教练告诉雅虎体育,他的球队的一名球员最近向他保证,这项运动并不是对个别学校的对待,而是球员们旨在改变的“制度”。a3RLive体育网

Some pointed to a tweet from former Arizona State quarterback Rudy Carpenter on July 17 that noted some movement was taking place. Carpenter is a private quarterback tutor based in Arizona with players scattered throughout the league. a3RLive体育网

一些人指出,前亚利桑那州四分卫鲁迪·卡彭特(Rudy Carpenter)7月17日的一条推文指出,正在发生一些行动。卡彭特是一名私人四分卫教练,总部设在亚利桑那州,球员分散在联盟各处。a3RLive体育网

Cal football has been one of the hubs of the movement, according to sources. The Twitter feed of Cal senior offensive tackle Jake Curhan matches the tenor of many in the movement (Curhan declined multiple calls from Yahoo Sports seeking comment on the matter). He tweeted out a Washington Post article on Saturday that told of SEC player concerns about the pandemic. He also recently retweeted a study from the National Collegiate Players Association that read: “The NCAA uses amateurism as an excuse to rob mostly Black athletes of $10 billion in generational wealth which flows instead to mostly white coaches, admins.” a3RLive体育网

据消息人士透露,加州足球一直是这场运动的中心之一。加州大学洛杉矶分校(Cal)高级攻击型拦截者杰克·柯尔汉(Jack Curhan)的Twitter账户与该运动中许多人的基调相符(库尔汉拒绝了雅虎体育(Yahoo Sports)就此事寻求置评的多次电话)。周六,他在推特上发表了一篇名为“华盛顿邮报”(Washington Post)的文章,讲述了SEC球员对大流行的担忧。他最近还转发了全国大学生球员协会(National Colciate Player Association)的一项研究,其中写道:“NCAA以业余为借口,夺走了主要是黑人运动员的100亿美元世代财富,而这些财富大多流向了白人教练和管理人员。”a3RLive体育网

a3RLive体育网

Curhan also retweeted NFL player Tyrell Crosby saying that if the NCAA had the best interest of student-athletes, “there would be no season, or at least a delayed season.” a3RLive体育网

柯尔汉还转发了NFL球员蒂雷尔·克罗斯比(Tyrell Crosby)的推文说,如果NCAA最符合学生运动员的利益,“就不会有赛季,或者至少会有一个推迟的赛季。”a3RLive体育网

a3RLive体育网

Curhan also retweeted a criticism of Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott from former Pac-12 athlete George Wrighster, a former NFL player. a3RLive体育网

柯尔汉还转发了前Pac-12运动员、前NFL球员乔治·赖斯特(George Wright)对Pac-12委员拉里·斯科特(Larry Scott)的批评。a3RLive体育网

“Why does the Pac-12 have the highest paid commissioner by far, lowest revenue, lowest distribution of content (households), while spending 8-9x more on operations than any other conference.” a3RLive体育网

“为什么到目前为止,Pac-12会议的委员薪酬最高,收入最低,内容分发(家庭)最少,而运营支出却是其他任何会议的8-9倍。”a3RLive体育网
