“Standing to sue” is a legal concept that, unfortunately, many lawyers choose to never understand. I doubt players have standing to sue a private association for decisions made by the association. In Illinois there is a long line of cases brought against the IHSA, all of which have crashed and burned. Of course, Nebraska state law, with which I am totally unfamiliar, may create some causes of action, although that would surprise me. If the season were to proceed, the schools would owe a duty of care to the players and if the schools negligently breached that duty the players would have standing to sue the school and everyone administering the program. Cancel the season, little chance of a successful lawsuit. Hold the season and lots of players become seriously ill, lots of potential liability. Now, be gentle with me and my opinions as law school was nearly 50 years ago.
