If you are unaware, the current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for the NFL is set to expire on March 3, 2011. This means that there is a potential threat of not having an NFL season next year.
The players have said they want to play and are determined to get a fair deal done, but due to the negative impact of a lockout, the NFLPA is attempting to do everything that it can in order to stop the lockout.
With that in mind, the NFLPA has named today, January 18th 2011, #LETUSPLAY Day.
NFL players across the league and fans are teaming up to participate in this social media blitz and need our help as well. Here’s what you can do to help:
- Tweet the following: “Today is #LETUSPLAY Day. Help #NFL Players & Fans #BlocktheLockout. Visit NFLLockout.com and sign the Petition. RT This!”
- Donate your Facebook status by posting: “Today is LET US PLAY Day. Help NFL Players and Fans Block the Lockout. Visit NFLLockout.com and sign the Petition.”
You will also be able to participate in a #LETUSPLAY chat with Kevin Mawae and active players on Facebook and Twitter today around noon. Players will also be taking fan questions from Twitter and Facebook and responding to them on Ustream and YouTube.
Let’s face it. No one wants to see a lockout next season. We all love football, especially the Eagles, and it would be devastating if they weren’t playing next fall. So, make sure you help out today and make sure to sign the petition!
