Grant of Rights was a cowards mistake. In the long run if you have value you will realize a gain on it. I think the whole profit sharing game the Conferences play reeks of communism. I don't see how these alliances are legal from a business model perspective. I guess because they're considered voluntary? They should take the whole structure down and start over. Congress should drop this Jan. 6 show and fix this.
Ultimately the situation will make such losers out of some it will end up in the Courts. Once the super conferences happen are they monopolies? I think they are. I certainly think this is more important than steroids in baseball. Maybe that's just my opinion.
and saying "time out" on any further conference realignment while the stakeholders can have an open discussion about ramifications and the health of the whole college athletics enterprise going forward.
The free market and capitalism are the bomb but checking greed is how it remains viable for a free society.
Trustbusting. Discouraging or dismantling monopolies. Rules governing acquisitions and oversight on large mergers and their impact on the larger business community and public at large. The US has a long, storied history spanning all parties in checking greed at this level. It has worked well to keep a more bustling and nimble industry in place, for the most part. Considering this involves interstate commerce and publicly funded entities, it certainly fits into Congress' and administrative purview.
