Minnesota players to boycott all football activity
Sounds like a gang-bang and not the players involved are suspended and the other players don't like it... Ugh

The entire Minnesota football team said Thursday that it is boycotting all football activities, which could include its bowl game, until it gets satisfactory answers from the university about the suspension of 10 players.

The school suspended the players Tuesday after an internal investigation into a sexual assault case. Police declined to arrest or charge any of the players, but the school suspended them based on its own standards for conduct.

The team's players said they haven't ruled out skipping the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 against Washington State in San Diego. They asked the bowl's committee to be patient while they work through the situation.

"The boycott will remain in effect until due process is followed and the suspensions for all 10 players are lifted," senior receiver Drew Wolitarsky said, reading from a prepared statement while flanked by all of his teammates. "We further request that (President Eric) Kaler and (athletic director Mark) Coyle (apologize) and demand that these leaders are held accountable for their actions. This decision for the players to take this stance is not easy, but important to preserve the integrity of the program and ourselves."

The university announced the suspensions Tuesday night without disclosing why. The incident at an off-campus apartment in September led to three-game suspensions of four of the players earlier this season. Another six were added to that list this week after the internal investigation for reasons that remain unclear.

A joint statement issued by Kaler and Coyle on Thursday night said the school's decision was "based on facts and is reflective of the university's values."

Re: Minnesota players to boycott all football activity
They're demanding due process?

So far it sounds like the police and courts haven't been involved, is that what they're asking for?

School should give the players opportunity to retreat with honour, and flush any who choose not to take it.

One big sad, and sorry spectacle.

I'm a little confused. Is this saying that the ones (10) who are suspected of being involved in the sexual assault will NOT play in the game, but all other members of the team will? Or will every team member play?

A good and moral people would not empower the pigs that run these universities and worship this trash they produce.
Turn it off and watch the fucking grass grow, you will be far more productive.

10 were suspended but the whole team are snowflakes and decided to not play anymore games.

What is a snowflake? One who stands in solidarity with his team in the face of injustice? Or something else?
