Nobody likes a good deal. At least that's what I've heard people say in the past...This is going to be such a train wreck. The NCAA is just caving to California, but the California legislation doesn't allow for any restrictions. There's no way to make all parties happy here.
Edit: "The board directed the three separate divisions of college sports to immediately begin figuring out how to update their rules in a way that maintains a distinction between college and professional sports. The board members said in a release Tuesday that all changes should make sure student-athletes have the same opportunities to make money as all other students, maintain a priority of the education and the collegiate experience, and that rules are "transparent, focused and enforceable" and do not create a competitive imbalance."
So in other words they're going to try to do the impossible. Good luck with that.
The big problem here is people have been fed a lot of disinformation to the point that they think there's money here that really isn't.Nobody likes a good deal. At least that's what I've heard people say in the past...
You are missing the voluntary, or should I say voluntarist aspect of this. I do believe in classic liberalism, however in this respect it has to do with being compelled to do something or not. Do they have to play college sports? Is this a choice they are making? It is obviously voluntary, I participated in amateur high school sports and did so willingly. I also worked as a bat boy for free when I was a kid, then later did so professionally. It's ok to not get paid for everything.I always thought it was about what is ethical and/or normative under our generally understood rights in classical liberalism.
That's a funny way to say completely capitulated. The NCAA has no leverage now, they just bowed completely to California.NCAA made a rational decision to the CA law
Meh, I heard from many on here that the playoffs would ruin college football... college football has never been better than the last 5 years in the playoff era. Change is necessary to survive.That's a funny way to say completely capitulated. The NCAA has no leverage now, they just bowed completely to California.
As the California law is worded, not only can boosters do that, but there's nothing that can be put in place to prevent it.Can boosters offer money competing with other schools boosters? It becomes an arms race unlike anything before in what is now not amateur sports.
I didn't say it would ruin college football, but what has it helped? College bowl games got damaged, that's for sure. Conference championship games lost importance. Heck, there's an article out right now that says Alabama shouldn't play Tua because a 'Bama loss wouldn't matter. That's the new reality but also a completely different discussion.Meh, I heard from many on here that the playoffs would ruin college football...
I agree, and that's what's going to kill the game.Seems like it opens the door for boosters to offer HS seniors endorsement contracts if they chose their college.
If you read their statement, it is clear that they capitulated because Congress was going to force their hand. Yes, California went first. But because other states were following CA with their own versions, Congress decided to step in to avoid having different rules from one state to another. Congress was going to require the NCAA to allow this or lose their anti-trust exemption.That's a funny way to say completely capitulated. The NCAA has no leverage now, they just bowed completely to California.
