the students already get a payment for playing football.
if they are employee's then that would be considered income as well. so not only will they pay taxes on what money they can try and squeeze out of the college, but they will have to pay taxes on the scholarships they receive also.
so again your ranting is just that ranting. you don't know what you are talking about. compensation is pay period as defined by the IRS code itself.
college's aren't going to pay high school student money to play football beyond what they do now. if that happens many school will just shut down their athletic departments as they can't afford the additional costs.The reason you see no market is because the NCAA members have colluded and agreed to not offer to pay athletes for their labor. It's textbook form of price fixing that interferes with free market operation and needs to be lifted. Then see if "there is no market".
of course you don't because it proves that you are wrong. that is why you don't.1. Look up the definition of colloquial.
3. I don't give a ****. I don't need a court ruling to tell me what is or isn't employment in the colloquial sense. Maybe you do, but I have no difficulties understanding simple definitions and knowing when and where they apply.
this is simple business. if the cost > value then you don't do it. this is where having business classes helps. there are things call ROI's.Oh please. There's way too much money to made in college football. All the universities and ncaa execs and advertising companies and sponsors aren't just going to throw it all away just because the players want a cut of the pie. Get real.
yes they will as athletic departments will come under major costs and liabilities.
the cost to operate will simply not be worth whatever money they can possibly make.
This will be overturned as it has for the past 30 years.
they are students not employee's. nothing will change that fact. if they don't like the free education etc... they can pay for it like everyone else. no one says they have to play football it is completely voluntary on their part.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
which is why they have sought to be recognized as a bargaining unit, authorized to sit down with the employer to negotiate what they will receive as compensation for their hours of labor in the future
that's it. to be able to participate in the discussion about what they will receive for their efforts
can't understand what you and others find so objectionable about having such a voice as that
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
