More NCAA nonsense. There are different state laws regarding employment, labor, transportation, tax, contracts, and countless other things. Yet, the NCAA can operate just fine and hold fair competition. The idea that athlete pay is the exception is absurd. https://t.co/SbAuIM16mF
This wasn’t “too complicated.”
Dear NCAA: Here is the simple solution to your simple issue (that only you find complicated). Atheletes are free to earn or accept whatever compensation they like, no NCAA restrictions. Restrictions, if any, are only on NCAA members and employees. Boom. Done. You’re welcome.
More NCAA nonsense. “College sports is about students playing other students.” Laughable propaganda. Money has nothing to do with status as a full-time student. Athletes without scholarships and stipends compete v. those with them. Classic misdirection. https://t.co/qgaw7o8E4P
"Commercialism has made possible the erection of fine academic buildings...from the profits of college athletics, but those profits have been gained because colleges have permitted the youths entrusted to their care to be openly exploited." The Carnegie Report, 1929
The NCAA continues its slow-play of change, even though change is inevitable. “It’s complicated,” Emmert says. No, it’s not. Funny, NCAA members agree to multi-billion dollar contracts and set up multi-billion dollar events, and it’s not “complicated.” https://t.co/HzLq40OmU2
Managers! Hardest working people in show business!
Good grief. Can a tennis player give lessons? What about pre-enrollment? It is simple. Athletes should be allowed unrestricted free market rights. Any restrictions (pre-enrollment pay or arranging pay) should be on the schools. https://t.co/wB5YnzElWA

This is a civil rights issue. Athletes should be allowed the same economic rights as everyone else, including every other student. It’s simple.
RT @StickwithusO: A few years ago, @teamcarolinalax was fortunate to have @JayBilas come out and address our 2019 team during a practice. His message was simple, and yet if you apply it, success on the field is inevitable – “Be easy to play with, be hard to play against.” @StickwithusO https://t.co/WkPXJoTJff
There were many actions that escalated this. However, there is no excuse for the ensuing fight. Punches thrown should lead to suspensions. Period. And, stop calling players “kids.” It infantilizes them. The NCAA calls it Men’s Basketball. They are adults. https://t.co/R4HD5BYZPs
This is simple: athletes should be allowed full economic rights, just like every other person. If any NCAA member wishes not to pay or allow pay, that’s its choice, or it can choose to play in Division 3. Multi-billion dollar industries are not amateur. https://t.co/oyc7eeybm6
The game was over. The steal was unnecessary, standing over an opponent was unnecessary, the words and shoves were unnecessary. The ensuing brawl was ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE. Each person involved (save for those attempting to break it up) knows better. Suspensions should follow.
