Of course, but there needs to be limits...

Too big to fast and they can control and manipulate smaller entities.

Football. A majority of them are millionaires. multiple wives, multiple kids, brain injured, criminal record's.

Doesnt seem right.

Just don't kneel before a country that can give so much opportunity to the uneducated and poor

And, just so we're not straying too far off topic, where are those Golden Bears? I don't see them ranked...

Maybe Cal should start actually playing football instead of trying to tell others how to.

USC was ranked.....until they lost their second game. I doubt people are going to be impressed watching Cal, UCLA, USC, and Stanford play each other twice and a couple of small schools in the state. At least they'll always have the Rose Bowl for the top two CA teams.

*snort*

They will. It's a violation of their policies to pay players so CA, in an attempt to get their players money and recognition, will instead suppress them to play in state, thus eliminating their chance to get noticed. It's ironic and funny at the same time.


California seems to like to make their own rules and try to force everyone to play by their rules.


Yes they do. They need to secede so America can stop interfering and not playing by CA's rules.

YEP! Professional athletes should cap out around $500K to $800K a year. The things money does to them is unreal.

Why? You want someone putting a cap on your earnings? What kind of commie bull*** is that?



This seems to be boiling down to a bunch of whiners crying, 'But, muh footbawl!'. Suck it up you socialistic marys, the free market is the way to go.

Yep, the free market. I assume you'd feel everything was OK if someone labelled a jar of honey as "1 pound" and put 14 ounces of honey in it? Hey, if they can still get people to buy it, what's the problem? Or the local farmer's market making their scale show an extra 20% on weight? Where's the problem? How about an employee seeing a company's internal plans and selling them to a competitor? Free market, bay-BEEEE!

There are rules, even in a free market.

If someone wants to start playing football by themselves and get endorsements, have at it. I have no problem. Build yourself a stadium, rent out a stadium, get your ball, and play the game! Promote it all you want! Make your millions! But either do it yourself or do it in agreement with your contract you signed.

These kids signed a contract saying they would abide by the NCAA and by damn they need to abide by the NCAA. Just because somebody who holds the leadership role in the most backwards state in the union decides he doesn't like the contract they signed, it does not follow the contract is suddenly null and void. they're using school equipment, school-provided expertise, school medical facilities, school venues, and NCAA advertising to promote themselves in violation of the rules when they go after endorsements.

That's not free market. That's theft.

If you want the kids to get endorsement revenue, lobby the NCAA to change their rules. Then there's no contract violation and no unfair practices based on being in the 'right' state. Then your argument has merit.

Piss on the NCAA, it's a monopoly in all but name only. I hope it dies a quick and painful death. Viva capitalism.

More equality, just like a CEO who gets paid double for doing much less work then a co worker.

Their pay is grossly exaggerated.

Bunch of man boys with the IQ of a middle schooler

They are over kill with equality. Way too liberal.

I'm more about companies that get too powerful that they can manipulate and buy out smaller companies.
Not a fan of monopolizing.

Take Facebook, Twitter, silicon valley, these are something everyone in the world wants to use.

The companies should be a public utility.

Just because they were successful does not mean they can take that power and manipulate the world they see fit.

They are using their power and money in sinister ways.

Imagine a privately owned electric company. everyone needs electric. Kinda forced to pay,
And that electric company would shut off power to Democrats, use their earnings to surpress Democrats.

Funny because dems always talk about the minority and how they need a voice, well now they are the majority and it a small group with conservative values comes along.

Not on board with the liberal Democrat mentality. you are heavily scrutinized.

Then you shouldn't be a fan of the monopoly which is the NCAA and all for the ability of a person to maximize their earning potential.

Uh, just about every utility company in the United States IS private and not a public entity.

No they shouldn't.

When your career depends on getting a diploma?

Professionals get paid.

Students LEARN TO GET PAID.

College athletes are the same as what the real world call interns.

Free labor to gain knowledge or skill to put to use later.

Now a Florida rep is trying to get in on this BS. When did it become a thing to violate rules you don't agree with?

Good! Its about time The NCAA is corrupt, and makes billions of these kids. If that same kid blows out his knee, he is done. Why not share in the profit?

I can see why SEC fans etc are so upset. It may result in a radical re-distribution of talent. The NCAA either needs to adapt or perish

To quote Richard Sherman:



“I hope it destroys the NCAA, in general, because I think it’s corrupt, and I think it’s a bunch of people taking advantage of kids and doing it under a mask of fair play,” 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said Monday, via NBCSportsBayArea.com.

Although the law does not allow schools to pay players, it allows players to get paid for jerseys, posters, autographs, product deals, etc.

“Colleges reap billions from student-athletes but block them from earning a single dollar,” Newsom said via Twitter. “That’s a bankrupt model.” sports.yahoo.com...

It's not gonna redistribute talent at LSU, which is the only school I care about.

All that's gonna happen is the liberals are gonna get involved and before you know it, the white QB making more money than the black RB due to more of his jerseys being bought is gonna be one more thing for them to say is because of race. Then the women, who literally nobody cares to watch, are going to feel left out and we'll have to deal with that, too. Think about the can of worms this opens up.

Because that kid should be thankful he got to look at Bear Bryant's ugly hat in a case somewhere, or run out of the tunnel towards Touchdown Jebus while he had the privilege of playing for Screw U and feel that he was in Heaven.

Is money supposed to fix your knee if you blow it out? Maybe staying in college and finishing will be the best thing if you blow your knee out, that way you'll have a long lasting career when you graduate.

Lack of money sure isn't going to help it.

I'm not in the habit of telling people how they should conduct their lives as I'm not an authoritarian looking for more bureaucracy.

Without the NCAA (or an agreement between schools similar) college football will cease to exist. Solution accomplished; no more endorsements to argue over.

Viva capitalism... unless it involves rules. Got it.
