However, I also agree it is opening a can of worms.First, those leeches called sports agents will descend on these athletes and many will screw them out of their earnings. There has to be some controls so the NCAA should take it slowly in developing guidelines. There are so many opportunities for abuse. Here is just an example of whay needs to be ironed out. Let's take an popular athlete whose college jersey with his number and name on the back. These are money makers for colleges. How will those profits be distributed. Keep in mind, the college owns the jersey.
Quote from: ConservativeInCT on October 29, 2019, 11:10:46 PMI can see why you would say this. The colleges own the teams they play for, and as you said the jerseys and numbers that they play under. Not to mention a lot of these college athletes do attend these schools for free, on accordance of their scholarships. This could create a serious conflict of interest.
