    California bill to allow student athletes to profit from their images has got NCAA threatening that Cali schools would be banned from champships. No surprise there from NCAA, hypocrites. Cali sponsors say intent is to force NCAA to update and bill isn't effective till 2023. Good that their status quo comfy zone is getting challenged. Hope the bill passes and that Texas follows suit.

    It's still my opinion that if kids want to make money on their likeness then don't go to college. Go Pro out of high school. If you want to play your sport then go to college.

    Because allowing them to sell their likeness is functionally just the same as allowing boosters to hand them checks.

    Amazing people don't get that yet somehow.

    That would be fine if the NCAA and schools weren't making money off of their likeness and the fact that it is a dumb rule from a bygone era.

    It's known going in, if the athlete has a problem with it, then go Pro and not to college. I don't see why it's so hard.

    Slavery was involuntary forced labor. I can honestly say I've never seen a college coach steal a athlete from his home and make him play a sport. Playing college sports is a voluntary decision.

    And you don't see how this would make paying players a bigger deal?

    What a ridiculous argument.

    Athletes are free to go elsewhere and try to make money.

    How many are able to do that? How much money have schools and the NCAA made from slave labor?

    Your only argument against it is that that is the rule. Well why is it the rule? Why can't it be different? The answer is that the rule was made in a completely different time when schools weren't making this kind of money. NCAA basketball and football are not longer amateur sports. The only reason that it remains this way is because the schools don't want to give up the money.

    Would the athletes be taxed on the earnings they receive from the image and likeness?

    Well, that is sad. Must be some kind of Stockholm syndrome.

    Let's not forget that the NCAA itself in fact argued that they shouldn't have to pay athletes because the 13th Amendment allows for prison labor. That is their argument. And let's also not forget that prison labor is allowed because it was seen as a way to get it passed and still allow for some time of slavery.

    I'm stunned some people are too dumb to understand how this leads to cheating. A school like UT or Alabama or cheating-Baylor would simply begin selling photo-branded items of every prospective player and pay them, where schools like ISU wouldn't be able to afford doing the same. It's bs and shouldn't be allowed.
