    Re: Judge rules NCAA athletes can pursue TV Money

    This was just a procedural ruling. Didn't really have anything to do with the substance of the paying players issue.

    I still don't give that much of a shot at winning.

    I think the ESPN article is intentionally misleading as to its significance. The truth wouldn't generate many clicks.

    Wow. This from a judge in the Northern District of California. Why did I suspect that?

    Judge rules NCAA athletes can pursue TV Money

    This is why I refuse to buy any more ncaa ea college sports video games. I haven't bought one of these games in at least 5 years now.

    I completely agree.

    It is hilarious to me how the media never ever ever gets legal rulings right.

    Yes. Basically this ruling from the judge simply allows the argument for pay to be brought. NCAA brought a motion regarding their procedure and the judge said in a sense, "we don't care about your rules, argue the merits of it."

    You only think recruiting was tough. Pass this and watch what happens. Come to school A, all of our games are on NBC. If you go to school B, they only get about 2 nationwide games/year....you can make 7x the money signing with us.....etc

    The "procedure" referred to is not the NCAA's procedures or rules, it's the rules governing federal court procedure.

    Are not the athletes being compensated adequately already?

    Maybe the ones who make it to the PROS owe the schools compensation from the enormous salaries that are paid these days.
    They are being trained in their professions as they play are they not?
    This is exactly right, and those figures don't even include the health care, training table, professional trainers, and tutors. College athletes have a very good gig, but there are always some who will want them to be paid an official salary. Usually this is because those people will want their part of those salaries, ie. agents, lawyers, etc.

    Well, I clearly misinterpreted the story too!
