saveplayers.com is online

Well, the cat is out of the bag now. In Today’s Austin American-Statesman’s Metro section, an article discusses Player’s fight against UT’s efforts to claim their land. UT is intending on using Player’s for a parking garage.

Michael and I have started working on a student movement aspect of Player’s efforts. We had talked to the owner and I threw up a quick splash page on saveplayers.com. We were mentioned in that article.

Now, there’s a hellstorm of media coverage being thrown our way. Tomorrow morning, I’m booked to be on the Bobby Bones morning show on 96.7 KISS FM at 8:45 a.m. His producer sent me an e-mail today and I left him a voicemail. I figure I’m not actually booked until I hear back from him.

The site, which we planned to release in August, was not ready at all for this kind of coverage. By 10 a.m., we put up an online petition and within the last hour, I splashed a little color on the site. I’ll add pictures in the next day or so.

The last time I ran a log check at 1 p.m., saveplayers.com had over 700 hits for the day. The online petition has just under 200 names.

Feel free to sign the online petition at saveplayers.com or the paper version at Player’s by the register.
