    Basketball jerseys will soon look like Nascar driving suits.

    I’m waiting for the post game interviews, “first, I’d like thank my endorsers…”

    The ABC Jersey, XYZ Shoes were solid for me today and gave me confidence to go for that game winning 3 today.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    If he hits that game winning 3, I am probably drunk at Danas and not listening to the post game interview anyway. He gets paid. I get happy drunk. Spot the problem (besides my drinking).

    If X recruits a guy named Herschel and Dana's sponsors him, you'll probably get a free beer.

    The Supreme Court just voted 9-0 against the NCAA. Which should surprise absolutely no one with any sense at all, but is probably a complete shock to the NCAA itself.

    It's possible the NIL of most every college player is not worth a whole lot. Unless your name was Zion.

    Edit: although I expect every major college player will get a free car at least.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Kavanaugh's concurrence is a pretty good recap about what the opinion did and did not do. On a first read, seems like this will have little impact on the NIL arguments, but will start an arm's race between conferences on "additional benefits" paid out to athletes in connection with education.

    Not exactly the outcome that I was hoping for, but at least the bitching will stop.

    Right? No more complaining?

    Right?

    Assuredly not.

    Did you see Kavanaugh's concurring opinion? He closes with this, which basically invites and encourages further challenges to amateurism and how it violates anti-trust laws. Since he opened that door even wider, I believe there will be more challenges to the NCAA in the very near future. I hope the NCAA understands that and sees the need to be proactive about it, but I'm guessing they do not.

    I mean, this just seems to me like one hell of a parting shot. It sounds to me like Kavanaugh is basically saying "You guys can take this a lot further if you want to."


    To be sure, the NCAA and its member colleges maintain
    important traditions that have become part of the fabric of
    America—game days in Tuscaloosa and South Bend; the
    packed gyms in Storrs and Durham; the women’s and men’s
    lacrosse championships on Memorial Day weekend; track
    and field meets in Eugene; the spring softball and baseball
    World Series in Oklahoma City and Omaha; the list goes
    on. But those traditions alone cannot justify the NCAA’s
    decision to build a massive money-raising enterprise on the
    backs of student athletes who are not fairly compensated.
    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. And under ordinary principles
    of antitrust law, it is not evident why college sports should
    be any different. The NCAA is not above the law.
