  • California just passed a law that allows college athletes to get paid

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom passed SB 206, also known as the Fair Pay to Play Act, into law Monday. The law allows college athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness.

    The bill will go into effect in 2023, and if the bill survives the expected court challenges, it could reshape the NCAA's business model.
    The formal signing of the bill was done on Uninterrupted's show "The Shop," which is hosted by NBA superstar LeBron James.
    "This is a game changer for student athletes and for equity in sports," said James. "Athletes at every level deserve to be empowered and to be fairly compensated for their work, especially in a system where so many are profiting off of their talents. Part of the reason I went to the NBA was to get my mom out of the situation she was in. I couldn't have done that in college with the current rules in place. This bill will help student athletes who are in a similar situation."

    As far as I am thinking about this, I think it's a good thing. However, I am uncertain how well I'm thinking it through -- is anyone aware of any issues obvious or otherwise?
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

      Colleges that don't do it, will not play with them now.

        I think the NCAA is a cartel that has prevented markets from working and has exploited people who bring in hundreds of millions of dollars while treating them like slaves.

          Other than "Why the fuck are these people still associated with colleges/universities?" no, no objections.
