The first petition, and the Fair Playoffs website, was launched in 2011 and garnered only 65 supporters. In 2014, private schools won 7 of 8 state champions in football and a new petition was launched. That petition was signed by 1,293 people! A new petition was launched in 2016. This new petition was backed by data from all sports that shows private schools win 2 to 3 times as many state titles as they should statistically. The new petition simply asks the MHSAA “provide state championship data to member schools and let them have a yes or no vote on implementing a competitive balance proposal. If member schools vote yes, a second vote should be taken to pick a particular system to assure greater fairness in the playoffs.”
