Fans start Facebook petition to get ‘Cat and Griz playoff games aired

Bobcat and Grizzly fans outraged that ESPN will not be broadcasting the first and second rounds of the FCS playoffs — in which their beloved teams are playing — have taken to Facebook to air their grievances.

The petition has been set up as a Facebook “event,” which makes counting the number of signatories a little difficult. So far, nearly 1,500 people have signified that they are “going” to the petition, which I take to mean they support the petition.

A further 27 people say they “maybe” support the petition, and another 14,000 have been invited to weigh in.

The petition encourages irate fans to contact ESPN at or 1-888-549-3776, ext. 3.
