RT @SBJLizMullen: Prominent players rights attorney Jeffrey Kessler said today's NCAA decision "is another step forward in the unraveling of its amateurism myth." He called on the NCAA to allow schools & conferences to make decisions about how to compensate athletes. Kessler statement: https://t.co/XkswamXbxu
NCAA Prez: “The board’s action today creates a path to enhance opportunities for student-athletes while ensuring they compete against students and not professionals.” What nonsense. “Student” means enrolled, nothing more. Status as a student has nothing to do with money. Zero.
From the NCAA Board of Governors (what it’s REALLY saying): We shall strive to allow athletes the right to name image and likeness opportunities, but only in a manner that does not allow them to monetize their name image and likeness opportunities. https://t.co/vFaZRBunQv
