"Ohhhh, man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take state."
I've found pimping to be easier than one might expect
I absolutely agree with the lawsuit. These kids are getting exploited for billions of dollars and the idea that a degree is adaquate compensation is about the stupidest thing I ever heard. Its modern day slavery.
I hope a judge destroys the NCAA and awards these kids the class action suit so they can sue the NCAA back into the stone age. Multi Billion dollar industry and all they offer is a degree? Kid could pay for 100 degrees with the money he makes the business that is college athletics.
Young athletes need better representation. Currently there is no choice. College athletics is the only road into the pros. You do not need a degree to play pro sports. So what has to happen is the kids need to form a league of their own where they get paid to play and it acts as a farm system for the pros without the need for a degree. The best players wouldn't go to school to get exploited. They would join their semi pro league with shared TV revenue and college sports slavery system would die the death it deserves. Football needs to go this route as well. Divorce academics from athletics. Pay them because they do work for it. Destroy the farce that amateur athletics is and give the young men the fair wage for their work rather than a few fat cat slave masters running their little plantations across many different states cracking the whip to get these kids to make them billions of dollars and in trade they get a 40k degree. What a deal!!!!!
If this same principle were applied to anywhere other than sports, people would be screaming bloody murder and this discussion would not be happening.
