If you hadn’t heard: “Northwestern Wins Bid to Unionize”
The cat has BEEN out of the bag (in my mind). See: (“Dough to Go Pro”). But athletes starving…c’mon yo, is a thing of the past –I know (?) It’s ridiculously silly with all the cash made, that the NCAA STILL plays the charade. Billions reaped , little for the athlete…. (?) They say equitable pay is a classroom seat (?)
OK… that IS one for the player, BUT … what has always worried me, is that eligibility and scholarship run concurrently. S/he should be able to use the scholarship anytime, if it satisfies a fee and supposed to be “free”. But how can it be when the program demands your energy daily. It’s the same ol’ story… the “student-athlete” has long been an employee.
