paid by who? tell me how that would work? The reason they do not have the option to get paid in the US is because the NBA players association will not allow it. The NCAA and college basketball does not stop anyone from going pro....yet I see NBA player after NBA player get in front of a camera and be a hypocrite by saying to pay the athletes....when it is their own "protectionism" rules that are preventing these players from being paid professionals. There is no real or easy way to incorporate payments into college athletics.


I agree. I’m not in favor of paying the players. But I am in favor of players being allowed to earn money through endorsements.

College football and basketball has these problems because the the NBA and NFL don't have a farm system for aspiring pros who are straight out of high school that don't want to go to college. So you end up with kids getting paid under the table. If Vince Mcmahon were smart he would open up the XFL 2.0 to kids that want to play football but don't want to go to college. Maybe they won't be starters but they can be bench players and transition to starters as they get more acclimated. Notice baseball and hockey doesn't have these problems because the players that want to play professionally end up signing with a club out of high school and playing in a development league while the ones that do want to go to college end up going there knowing the sacrifice they are making.

They also deserve to make money when the school sells jerseys with their name/number on it. They deserve a piece of that action.

True amateur vs commercial ‘commodity’
Why not have a distinction between different NCAA sports/student athletes whether they’re mostly amateur or mixed amateur/commercial. Say if your budget spends less than 10% for the ‘student’ part of student athlete expenditures (academic purposes) the the student athletes are part of commercial for profit business aka not true amateur thus should be compensated (maybe a percentage of profits using their image). If other NCAA program spends more than 10% of their budget on academic then they’re true amateur and not entitled to compensation
(I pick 10% out of thin air but the idea is to have a distinction of which ones are true amateur student athletes and which ones are commercial athletes while being students)

Why is it so widely accepted that paying players would reduce or eliminate these types of bribes from agents?
It won't.
People rich and poor, from all walks of life still want more money. That's why bribery works, from flat broke High School kids to the billionaires running the world.

Bribes and stipends are two separate issues. They are certainly linked, and will influence the other, but they each are more than important enough and distinct enough to merit independent discussion, too.

Give the kids a stipend.
Prosecute people who attempt to bribe them, and the agencies who employ them.
Let the IRS go after recipients who do not disclose this income on their tax returns.

That's a start, anyway.

I think they need to do both those things. If not, then the coaches and schools should be held to the same rules. That means Coach K cant sign a million dollar contract with Nike and force his kids to wear them. That means Nick Saban can't endorse Mercedes or Gatorade.

Kansas finally gets mentioned in the FBI investigation. I said from the beginning....Kansas is Adidas's flagship school, and there is no way they are paying to recruit players to Louisville, and not pushing them to Kansas.

Quote:
Federal prosecutors in New York on Tuesday added additional criminal counts to the indictment of Adidas executive James Gatto, alleging for the first time that he conspired to provide cash payments to the families of former basketball players at Kansas and NC State.
