NCAA To Permit Athletes To Be Compensated

The NCAA will permit athletes to be compensated for their names, images and likenesses, its Board of Governors said.

Here is what the Associated Press reported:

The NCAA Board of Governors has taken the first step toward allowing athletes to cash in on their fame. The board voted unanimously on Tuesday to clear the way for the amateur athletes to “benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness.”

The vote came during a meeting at Emory University in Atlanta.

In a news release, board chair Michael V. Drake said the board realized that it “must embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes.”

  1. This is fantastic news!

    Hopefully, the days of NCAA sanctions for giving t shirts to recruits will end forever. This is very good for USC and Nike/Under Armour.

    Amazing what the threat of pending legislation will do to monopoly known as the NCAA.

  2. Glad to see they are doing it rather. than each state doing their own thing and politicians trying to determine the criteria on something few of them know little about, If each stste had done it it would have been too inconsistent and some teams might have had a recruiting advantage based on what their state vs another allowed.

  3. Makes Bryce Young’s flip look pretty stupid now. He has a ton of exposure and name recognition in L.A. In Tuscaloosa, he’s a nobody. He’ll flip back, though maybe to UCLA to save face, but the dollars are all here.

  4. This wouldn’t have happened without California taking the first step and directly challenging the NCAA with that bill this summer.

      1. Fast Fred,

        You are incorrect, CA is worse than a third world country. It soon will be bankrupt because of the spending on illegal Aliens and other crap that we don’t need here in CA. The state will be bankrupt but knowing the Commie Atheist Socialist Party, the Democrats, they will spin it saying that they need more money and that they will have to raise the taxes. Taxes need to be cut back by 80% and let CA live on a tight budget like we all do.

  5. I am going to open a player marketing agency, and purchase thousands of their t shirts. Our contract of course will include a percentage of all sales, and future representation in any other money making ventures, including anything related to the nfl. What a sweet deal this will be.

    I see that you got your racist classes in at Clown U aka Thug U aka ruinville. What a Moron or how Bugs Bunny would say it, “What a Maroon”. How do you not know that Fast Fred isn’t Hispanic, Asian, or Black? What a stupid piece of feces. You racist.
