colleges can pay football players directly. Something like 2.7 billion in back pay for the last 10 years and up to 20 million per year per team via revenue sharing for players going forward. College football officially no longer college football. Handwriting has been on the wall for some time I guess.

It's time to stop pretending with the "student/athlete" amateur college sports thing. This is minor league system for NFL.
Attending class/education should be optional.
Each athlete will sign an employment contract.
They will unionize (NFLPA style)
It may be that the power 5 conferences go this route and other NCAA teams maintain the student athlete model.
It appears that the revenue sharing will be separate from NIL money for the employed players.
I'm "all out" on this model and will keep my IPTAY dollars in my pocket

Now that the athletes can get something closer to fair compensation, people are butthurt?

So, you're going to donate to IPTAY as long as the stores don't get compensated fairly and stop as soon as that longstanding wrong is righted?

The scholly benefits are a drop in the bucket of the money the athletes bring to the schools - especially the football players.

The athletes take all of the risk and do the vast majority of the work.

The NCAA rules preventing them from getting paid for NIL were illegal. The NCAA rules preventing them from unrestricted transfers were illegal.

Doing that to make money from other people's labor without fair compensation is classic exploitation.

It's long past time for those wrongs to be righted. Fortunately, the courts are doing just that.

"Nowhere else in America can businesses get away with agreeing not to pay their workers a fair market rate on the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers a fair market rate."

The NCAA lost that one 9-0 in a court that is so ideologically divided that they can't agree on where to go for lunch. That tells us how utterly wrong the NCAA was.

The problem is that all of those millions made enable the athletes to be cared for like kings and queens. Full chef service, round the click medical care, free merchandise, all expenses paid to tournament in beautiful places, and at Clemson an educational experience that cost most kids 125,000 dollars! So prepare for cuts to some of these services. I'm good with it. Pay them, but now next phase is the star QB throws more picks than TDS in a 5 game span and he gets a pink slip. Legally these institutions have that right.

The NCAA indeed exploited the athletes for decades. They made millions of dollars on the athletes' risk and labor while investigating them for accepting a free cheeseburger.

The entire NCAA sports model is illegal.
The House case settlement proves it.
The NCAA knows that if that case went to a jury, they stood to lose an estimated $20 billion or more. 2 or 3 billion is a problem for them. $20 billion is "cease to exist" money.

I'll take the Supreme Court and other court rulings that confirm that the athletes were indeed exploited for money by the NCAA, for decades.

It's long past time e to stop denying those facts.

three summers... even into the start of school. Made $15 dollars a day. Usually started around 6am and went until barns were loaded/unloaded at end of day - around 10PM. $15 dollars a day - 6 days per week.

This, even then, was more work and less pay than college athletes were compensated with scholarships, room and board, and their friendly handshakes that happened more often than not. The tobacco industry sure made their billions - where's my share?

Fair compensation?

250k education/diploma and a graduate degree if you work it right.
Tutor in any subject you need help with.
Live in the Taj Mahal with as much gourmet food as desired.
5 star training equipment and free medical care
Travel the country like a rock star
Pell Grants that don't require repayment.
Access to micro-internships with google or apple or whoever you want.
Doors that are opened for you that no other college student has access to.
There are many other benefits and I don't know how to value all of them objectively, but let's not pretend the college athlete hasn't been compensated. you can argue about what fairly means though.

Also, if we "fairly compensate" the college football player with tv revenue sharing, that amount would be subtracted from the athletic dept budget. So, what happens to all of the other sports. I don't think they could be compensated too and they may even need to be shut down because they are currently being funded by the football program?

I would think this would absolutely encourage everyone to double their IPTAY dollars. For years , IPTAY has been the only reason little Bobby or Deontae has not starved to death or walked around campus wearing torn up shoes in the winter while being used and forced to play college football while also having to go to school. Now IPTAY can sign the current years RB to a 700k year contract so they can hopefully have that winter home in Hilton Head like the rest of us

Well, no more scholarship offers. Camping at schools will be tryouts. Players will have to hire agents. No more having to maintain a grade point average and if a player decides to attempt to get an education they will have to pay the cost. Any transfers will be free agents.

On the surface, I don’t have a problem with players getting played. There are two issues though.
Larger schools with larger fan bases and larger TV contracts ( SEC and Big Ten ), Will have more money to pay players, and they will get all the best players.
The other problem is the excess profits generated in football help pay for all the athletic programs, specifically women’s programs. Going forward that access revenue will be paid to the players and there will not be any money left for the other sports programs so many of the other sports programs will have to be eliminated.

Consider MEDICAL STUDENTS and MEDICAL RESIDENTS.

Medical students spend their last 2 years performing increasingly more attending-physician duties for NO PAY, in exchange for TRAINING.

The medical student, unless on scholarship, continues to rack up enormous student loan debt.

The medical resident will earn somewhere between $60K to $75K per year for a 60-70 hour work week for the next 3 to 6 years! Essentially, in exchange, again, for TRAINING to be a full board certified doctor. This is effectively MINIMUM WAGE for a person whose MARKET VALUE is really MUCH HIGHER based on their knowledge, responsibilities, and time performing their duties.

I’m quite certain that for those on this board that clamor about student athletes not getting their “fair market value” will DISREGARD the “unfair” compensation of a medical student or medical resident and come up with some LAME EXCUSE about the non-equivalency of the student athlete and the medical student.

The false premise is that anyone is freaking out about fair compensation station. The freak outs are coming from the Chicken Littles who claim that the sky is falling, and who think they have the right to try to limit other people's compensation.

The false dilemma is in comparing two very dissimilar careers - medicine and sports.

And...there's a big push for fair compe station for medical interns, and residents, too.
