  1. NCAA corrupt like FIFA.

    • @Fag Bag You must have zero knowledge of the fast and furious thing. And you mean all of the evidence that #TrumpTheCorrupt has against him? When will you brain dead morons learn that facts cannot be “alternative”, they are either true or false no matter how much you want them to be fluid.


    • @Fag Bag But he was. A very successful one for 8 years! 🙂 Also, it’s spelled “president”. Sorry to be a grammar Nazi; I know Trumpers hate one of those things.

    • @gymkhanadog #soyouranazi

    • @gymkhanadogeasy for one. One is making billions in revenue and not paying its players. And the other making as much or more but are paying there players

    He’s 100% right

  3. I find it funny that the ones who actually oppose the California bill either don’t have the mental capability to understand the bill itself OR stoop to the outdated theory that it will ruin amateurism as if that ever existed 😂

    • @Lareland Cooper So in other words, you don’t; have a point or an opinion about the topic at all. Like I said, its a slippery slope.. Boosters and outside money from greedy sources have no place in the education system.. The pros’ can cash in if they make the bigs

      @StudioSJS I am not worried about him. These guys just don’t understand the reality of college sports and especially college football today. They don’t get that you’re required to be out of high school for 3 years before the NFL. 3 years that you can get a career ending injury before you make a dime. A couple have insurance but almost no one does and it’s not near the money they would otherwise make. There are so many nuances that they don’t even know about and therefore cannot comprehend. It’s not like college football players have another option. Where are they supposed to go? Germany?? Yea, that’s gonna compensate them and give them a good look for NFL scouts…. it only takes an ounce of open mindedness, compassion, or experience with the system to realize that it is woefully wrong. These laws need to exist and be taken further. And that’s coming from someone who has lived it and cares about this sport more than almost anything. It’s not going to change the sport, any of them. It will make it better when the best players that the NCAA currently cant retain, can play at their best without as much fear of being injured and knowing that they don’t have to rush out of the NCAA to make sure they get a check.

    • It’s even funnier that you are so shallow in your conviction that you hide behind a weenie alias.

    • Mark Hoffman ooh school shooter, what an amazing response, top notch

      Rabbit Skipper Then I guess all colleges should allow their athletes to use their own image 🤷‍♀️

      @Melissa ThomasKmart, Blockbuster & Kodak refused to change their business model & got left behind. I got paid while in the military & they also paid for my schooling. These are not groundbreaking new concepts.

  7. I agree 100%. The NCAA and colleges have been making millions off of the talents, blood, sweat and tears, injuries and broken bones of these student players. They bring the fans to the stadiums and arenas. They deserve some kind of compensation for their sacrifices.

      ** billions

    • You have posted a grossly inaccurate statement of fact.

      An average 4-yr scholarship athlete receives around $250k in educational, medical, food, and housing benefits.
      What percentage of these athletes do you believe personally generated revenue greater than that amount?
      Less than 25%, which would not have happened in 99% of the cases without the undervalued 75%.
      It’s not surprising you hide your ignorance behind an alias.

    • @Mark Hoffmanwhich athletes are you referring too. I dont know where you got that crap. You have players who in some cases are too poor to buy a pair of damn shoes.

    • Melissa Thomas | October 2, 2019 at 8:47 AM | Reply

      Mark Hoffman $250k? 😂😂😂🤦‍♀️

  8. About time. How about those athletes who lose their scholarships when injured playing 🤔Those schools making money off these athletes are corrupt too.

  9. NCAA was created to protect student interests in the world of athletics. Now that there is so much money in the NCAA, they dont care about the students.

  10. If they won’t pay the college athletes, then they shouldn’t pay the coaches MILLIONS of dollars.

  11. Seems like he’s Right 100%.
    Who agrees?

    • 100% wrong Paid For your likeness 👌. California can’t compete with East Coast football so liberal governor making it legal for booster to buy black athletes. Liberals try to control everything black, NFL,NBA, Rap music, now college football. There pay is receiving a free education.

    • Eric Thomas your a fool, what happens to the player who doesn’t make the NFL that has to deal with injuries he suffered in college… How long do they take care of that college kid’s healthcare? Research the scam of student athletes….

    • @Harry Mohan IF there worried about all that nonsense don’t play. No one is being forced to play its that simple. Playing is a privilege not entitlement.

  12. Its complex we’re going to have company pay for educational soon anyway. There 18 or not?

  13. I can’t wait to see how this STARS work out once the non compensated players stop supporting them. I’m guessing its gonna be ugly

  14. If you go to college to study acting on a scholarship and also appear in a movie or a Broadway show are you kicked out of school? Same with computer science. Are you expelled if an app you develop is a best seller?

  15. The only reason I’m kind of excited about this is cause now we can get NCAA football back 😤😤😤

  16. Le Bron this is the deal!!!Bravooooooooooo!👏👏👏Daymon Green👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏🗣not Jay-Z 😴😴😴😴

  17. So basically this is an end to college sports

  18. It’s about Fn time. They spend 4 years watching everyone get rich off of their talent. Good luck.

  19. Leave it the way it is athletes in college shouldnt be paid is bs

    Bless California and the Sport Athletes who put their lives on the line every weekend and day in practice. Ncaa = mob like.
