    Re: Make the NCAA pay?

    I didn't read the whole thing, but definitely using former athletes likeness past their college days seems to warrant those athletes get paid.

    I don't think former athletes should get paid for universities and the NCAA selling promotional video, as long as those things occurred while they were students, but using them in video games or new things after they've left school should warrant them getting a share.

    Re: Make the NCAA pay?

    Their pay should be equal to the free tuition that they receive, should they choose to take advantage of it. I do agree that profit from their likeness used after their eligibility has expired, should be compensated.

    Agree here.

    And if a coach in any of these video games goes, "Woo-eee!" Johnny Orr should be compensated.....and beloved.

    Re: Make the NCAA pay?

    The NCAA makes tons of money off the players, I believe they deserve something. I don't believe there needs to be thousands of dollars a month exchangeing hands, but the players should get some money. I know the free education argument, but let's be honest, do these schools really care about the players education?

    Yes I did and i stand by my original post that College Student Athletes should not be paid.

    They already are getting enough, free school, free room and board, free medical care, and most receive max pell grants each year.

    Re: Make the NCAA pay?

    The players know going in what the situation is. Playing NCAA sports is an option. If they don't want their likeness in a video game then they don't have to be apart of the NCAA experience. It's not like this is the first year that this has been going on.

    This is the correct answer. For a point of reference, Iowa makes roughly 3 million dollars in ticket sales alone for each home game. I can only imagine what a school like Ohio State or USC brings in, as I would be willing to bet that their ticket prices are higher.

    At any school, how much of that filters back to the general fund?
