Although the NCAA has never been compared to modern-day slavery, as the NFL has by Adrian Peterson, it is a flawed system that battles with properly compensating its players. Players become celebrities, both locally and nationally, before ever becoming a professional athlete. When achieving that status, time and time again we see young athletes struggling to not pluck low hanging fruit.
NCAA president, Mark Emmert, feels it is time to explore the subject in board meetings but maintains the players must remain students and not become employees. Do you see the NCAA finding a solution to this problem in the near future?
Last June, the NCAA basketball tournament landed a 14 year, $10.8 billion contract. All I’m sayin is, don’t stop breaking the bread now.
