ROCHESTER, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A petition circling social media is aiming to change the day of the big game from Sunday to Saturday.

Rochester resident Frank Ruggeri posted the petition to six days ago and as of Tuesday morning, the petition has been signed more than 6,000 times.

Ruggieri wants to change the day because he thinks it will attract more money and more visitors and television viewers to the big game.

The goal is to get 7,500 signatures on the web page.
