APU, All Players United, Wristband Protests Strike NCAA

APU, All Players United, Wristband Protests Strike NCAA

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – What does “APU” stand for, and why are NCAA college football players writing “APU” on their wristbands today? APU stands for “All Players United”, organizers tell news. The APU protest effort is expanding this week as college football players protest treatment by the NCAA .

APU is being supported by NCPA. National College Players Association Ramogi Huma told ESPN this week that the effort will continue all year long. On Saturday games, several players wrote “APU” in white on black wrist tape.

The issues that they are protesting are compensation levels and risks of concussions. “Players will continue to wear the APU throughout the season and spread the word,” Huma told ESPN. “They’re taking the reform effort to television, which has never been done. They’ve been using their bodies to make money for the people who run NCAA sports. Now, for the first time, they’re using their bodies to push for basic protections at the very least.”

As to concussions, the group hopes to “force the NCAA to finally take meaningful steps to minimize brain trauma in contact sports and provide resources for current and former players suffering with brain injuries.”

As to compensation, the groups hopes to support player who “stepped up in the O’Bannon v. NCAA, EA Sports lawsuit regarding the use of players’ images/likeliness, which could unlock billions of dollars in resources for current, future, and former players.” NCPA also wants “a portion of its over $1 billion in new TV revenue to guarantee basic protections.”
