    NCAA vs Alston

    NCAA lost a case before the supreme court 9-0. While the case itself was only regarding extra educational benefits for student athletes the concurring opinion by Justice Brett Kavanaugh has opened a lot of eyes and really given the green light for future lawsuits to tear down the NCAA cartel.

    There are multiple great points by Kavanaugh but I will just post his closing statement

    "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."
