    Del Rio Watcher,

    Your argument is what’s called a slippery slope. You might want to qualify some of it. While I don’t condone–in theory–the idea of college athletes, or really, college students being able to cash-in on their status as students, I also think this goes to show just how flawed the NCAA model is. I strongly think college sports team ought to break away from the NCAA and forge an alliance with the governing organizations or top-tier professional league of their respective sports. The concept is for these teams to form a lower-level professional league that has a direct association with the top-tier league(s). This is how it’s done in most of the world, typically in soccer. It works. This sort of thing is avoided, and athletes don’t take spots from actual students. To be fair, I’ve known many student athletes to be decent students, just not all of them.

    There goes the neighborhood. With college athletes able to sell their names to the highest bidder amateur sports is dead. Next is high school stars, Little League World Series Stars and any other kid they can pimp for a buck. You can blame the NCAA. Way to greedy. Did not want to share the wealth. Watch the price of high school football continue to rise. A couple of years ago it was 5 bucks. Now it’s at least double that. They even charge for the Pony Baseball tournaments. A parent in the SGV with several kids has to spend 50$ a week to watch his son play football. That is total crap.
