RT @KeithOlbermann: And everything I have in MY career started with an unpaid internship in the newsroom of a NYC TV station (which I could take while others couldn’t because I didn’t need to make money).

Great perspective. That Tim Tebow wishes to turn down compensation doesn’t mean all should be required to. He is free to play for free. All athletes should have the same economic rights as LITERALLY everyone else. That’s real choice.
Athlete pay is coming. The NCAA believes lawmakers should wait for it to change its rules at its glacial pace, but the NCAA has had over 100 years to figure it out. The federal government is about to do it for all 50 states. Yet again, the NCAA is reacting instead of leading.
