    Re: Fair Pay to Play Act Signed into Law in CA

    Had the NCAA simply allowed scholarship athletes a stipend to cover extra expenses this would be a non-issue. That said, is there anything California can't screw up?

    They did, and most schools have implemented it.

    So does Jalen Waddle get a cut of all "17" Jerseys that Bama Sells? Or everytime ESPN puts our Helmet on the screen?

    This is not connected in any way to the current change being discussed, but who can know what the future holds.

    I donít think this is about the schools paying players, itís about players being able to cash in on their own names.

    Think if the money Tua could have made through endorsements in the last 2 years.

    If Golden Flake wants to pay him, thatís a private business deal between consenting parties and the school and Title IX have nothing to do with it.

    And let's be honest. It wouldn't have mattered the number they would have put on the stipend. Would it have made any of this current topic go away? When/if this current legislation is passed on a national level and players begin to profit from it. Will that satisfy the beast? Nope. It's like the lyrics in a Kenny Chesney song that perfectly describes human nature:

    'Cause you and Tequila make me crazy
    Run like poison in my blood
    One more night could kill me, baby
    One is one too many, one more is never enough
    "More" will never be enough. LOL! For the record. I'm not saying the current format doesn't need changing. I'm just saying if anyone thinks letting players make money (privately) from their popularity is going to end this topic and everything is going to look the same on the field. They are gravely mistaken.

    That’s not how endorsements work

    It wonít end the topic but its a step in the right direction, better to do something than to not do it at all.

    Hardly anyone in this country seems to want to curb the capitalistic enthusiasm of businesses so what gives about wanting to curb similar enthusiasm from labor?

    If we are being honest, the NCAA opened the door for this by exploiting players and making big bucks by getting in bed with EA and ESPN.

    What I find funny is that so many are against high school players going to places like the XFL instead of college as a route to the pros, and always signaling that college football is THE semi pro league. But any step to ACTUALLY make it a semi pro league, everyone goes crazy and starts to point out stipends, education, and insurance benefits that are given to these players.

    I think without a true alternative to college football, something has to change to reflect what college football is.... a semi pro league.

    I am not a lawyer but I think lowend has a point. It will be just a matter of time when a popular women's basketball player, softball player will contest the legality of them not getting paid for any publicity using their names.
