not sure what to think about this. on the one hand they're not getting paid (lol) as works, as they're students, but at the same time they are the workhorses driving a multi-kazillion dollar industry, and you could make a case for it.

Bye-bye NCAA!

What a mess this is going to turn into. But players should be compensated fairly for their labor, because few have the ability to make it to the pros and many of these student-athletes will have nothing to show for their college experience besides some great memories and a ton of health problems later in life, meanwhile, the fat-cats are getting fatter and set for life.

Just take sports out of the colleges and make them paid farm systems for the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc.

 

Stop calling them student athletes....because they will now just be employees

how does unionizing help the 90 percent of players that are never going to get paid to play ball?

I can see it now, "The Ga/Fla has been cancelled as Bulldog players picket wanting new weight room facilities and no spring practices"

 

Or, maybe they will all be one big collective union.  Who knows.

 

Guess the girls softball teams will unionize also, but will they get the same money as the football/basketball players?

So will the Michigan union pay more than the Northwestern union?
