How You Can Join FanRevolt and Dump the BCS

Wouldn't you like the drama of USC versus Texas every year?  Well, the thrill of a playoff would certainly bring drama, and lots of it!

Our polling indicates that fans prefer to dump the BCS in favor of a playoff system. Our research also indicates that you are willing to protest now and change the BCS forever.

  Had Nebraska known how to execute a standard kickoff at the end of the Big 12 Championship it would be Alabama vs TCU, Boise State, or Cincinnati in the crazy BCS National Championship. 

There are many good plans out there and I believe you will like this one as well.  OK, some of you won't, so make sure you let us know. For those of you who do agree, why not take action now?


Why Join the Cause For a College Football Playoff?

One of the reasons the BCS and its invested partners are not making any change toward a playoff system is because they know fans will keep coming no matter what. They think of fans as being scattered, weak sources of income and not one powerful force that demands a playoff. Even in the face of tough economic times, their revenues remain strong, and some project they will grow.

What am I Joining and Why?

FanRevolt is the power of one plus a bunch of others.  Join the FanRevolt and your voice gets attention and grows into a unified voice of power demanding a playoff.

·  Imagine watching a college bowl game and being able to instantly identify the fans who agree with you and demand a Playoff! 

·  Imagine the camera shot that brings us back to the game after commercial, the aerial shot from a blimp, and you can actually see huge portions of the crowd who are sending the message, “We Demand a Playoff!” 

·  Imagine being out and around where you live and seeing people popping out of the background and you instantly know they are on board and demanding a college playoff.

When People Can See What You Are Thinking, They Act

How can you make your voice heard as part of a bigger message without saying a word? In one word: Green. Not just any green, but bright, can’t-miss-it FanRevolt green with the clear message: Demand a College Playoff! It's Green that can be seen.

Adding FanRevolt green in mass quantities to the wonderful mix of sights and sounds and motions that make a day at the game, imagine how many will get that message.

Why FanRevolt Green Out Gear Says, “Demand a College Playoff?”

 The goal of the protest is to create a FanRevolt Green Out on Game Day!

We all know what a blackout is—the power goes down. A "Green-Out" works this way, after gathering momentum, a little at first, big bunches later, and building to gargantuan groups of green fans, a Green Out happens in a stadium when so many people are demanding a college football playoff by wearing green that all that can be seen is green.

A FanRevolt green-out is a unified and powerful voice of change, demanding a College Football Playoff, feeding media coverage, news stories, blogging, and Internet buzz that translates into pressure on the BCS to adopt a playoff.
