    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    do you believe the university is going to contract out its football team as that company did its warehousing? absolutely absurd
    No. I think it would end the football program. Roughly the same thing.

    A former athlete I think? Not that it's relevant to my discussion.

    This probably deserves a thread all it's own, but it also relates to this topic.

    Male college football players to receive maternity coverage under Obamacare

    Northwestern University became the first school in the nation to deem its football players full-time employees, thus making them eligible for union representation and health insurance benefits including maternity coverage. . . .

    The kicker is that under Obamacare, the Evanston, Ill.-based team, comprised of more than 50 “employees,” is considered a “large employer” and Northwestern must provide pregnancy-related health care for the all-male team.

    “This is insane: in the world President Obama lives in, college football teams are now unions, and government is paying for maternity coverage for 18 year old boys. It might be funny if it were not such a blatant attack on the American idea of a private sector,” said Nebraska senatorial candidate Ben Sasse in a new promotional video called “Pregnant Football Players.”

    That must be just some loophole or something. It's not like these guys are ever going to use that coverage.

    You realize that women insured under the ACA are covered for prostate cancer related procedures too, right?

    These criticisms of ACA coverage are not reflective of the nature of ACA coverage as much as they are reflective of the abject ignorance of the poster not understanding health insurance.

    Problem with your ill informed analogy is that while rare, women DO get prostate cancer. Men can NOT get pregnant.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Or better yet, stop letting them attend classes, which might as well be presented to most of them in Chinese. Stop giving them opportunities they've done nothing to earn.

    You give a scholarship to a male athlete, you have to give one to a female athlete. You pay a man, you must pay a woman.

    The only way around it is to dissolve scholarships, but that's got to be done on a 1-to-1 basis, too. Minor sports will be sacrificed.
