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.
Correct me if I am wrong please, but don`t they get "paid" by receiving scholarships for playing ball?! These scholarships are worth $100k+. Or am I missing something?
