Teen petitions to move Super Bowl to Saturday

ROCKFORD (WREX) — A New York teenager is fighting to eliminate Super Bowl Sunday. No, he doesn't want the game canceled. He just wants it moved to Saturday.

Frankie Ruggeri created a petition on Change, org to change the day the big game airs. He said moving it to Saturday would mean more children could enjoy the game since they don't have to wake up early for school the next day.

Thousands of people agree with Frankie. By 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, it had nearly 7,500 signatures. It's unlikely, however, that the NFL would make the switch. The league believes ratings and revenue are stronger on Sundays than Saturdays.
