    NCAA Conf. Commsnrs Seek Congressional Help with NIL while Cong. Has for Years Been Influenced by MLB Lobbyists to Keep Illogical Antitrust Exemption

    As I read the NIL laws, they prohibit the NCAA from denying an athlete the right to earn NIL compensation. In the broader view, beyond scholarships and NIL, the NCAA and NFL/NBA was\are preventing athletes from earning income...the NCAA via banning NIL, and the NBA/NFL by age restriction...

    NCAA Conf. Commsnrs Seek Congressional Help with NIL while Cong. Has for Years Been Influenced by MLB Lobbyists to Keep Illogical Antitrust Exemption

    But those rules still prevent athletes who don't meet their age requirements but are talented enough to play in their leagues from making income. The states have legislated that the NCAA can't prevent athletes from earning NIL income, but they have no similar legislation (that I am aware of)...

    NCAA Conf. Commsnrs Seek Congressional Help with NIL while Cong. Has for Years Been Influenced by MLB Lobbyists to Keep Illogical Antitrust Exemption

    Well, I suppose the Feds could pass laws against using NIL as a recruiting inducement or pay-for-play. If that was actually codified as a crime, a law enforcement agency with actual subpoena and prosecutorial power could go after the violators. If a few violators actually got punished, it...

    College leaders plan a crackdown on NIL collectives

    IMO, something akin to the last part of your post is the only chance that the NCAA has to gain "control" of the current situation as it is. They have to get the state laws, or parts of the state laws, declared unconstitutional. As long as the state laws are in place, the NCAA is powerless to...

    College leaders plan a crackdown on NIL collectives

    How much money would it cost a state to prosecute one of these cases? Is any state going to expend the time and money to prosecute? It seems to me that it would be very difficult to prove a voilation. I guess it's nice that these state laws have the "rough and tough" language, but from a...

    College leaders plan a crackdown on NIL collectives

    At this point, there is no harm in the NCAA pushing back. They can push and see how far the courts let them go.

    Craig McDonald transferring

    A majority of states now have laws forbidding any organization from regulating NIL for college athlets. Thus, any attempt to regulate NIL is going to end up in the courts. We'll see how much fortitude the NCAA has to take on NIL in the courts by who they pick as their next president.

    Anyone owned a VW Golf?

    We had a 2014 Jetta Sportwagen TDI (which is a Golf wagon renamed in the US for marketing purposes) that I bought as a salvage/rebuilt for real cheap. It was wrecked and totaled out with 5000 miles on it. The damage wasn't that bad IMO, and the repair work was done well. My wife and I both...

    NCAA messed it up!

    Now that a majority of the states have NIL laws in place, the NCAA has very few options to stem the chaos. One approach would be to let the situation fester for awhile longer. No doubt, some nasty shenanigans will surface, and maybe public sentiment will sour on NIL. The NCAA then bans NIL...
