"The NCAA is not above the law," wrote Justice Brett Kavanaugh in his concurring opinion.

So what do you think it looks like in 3-5 years?

Anyone who gives money to a college athlete is unethical and sinful.Video games. Paid interviews. Jersey sales of a future star. Autographs. I get it’s going to be a disaster, but I’m also not for athletes not being able to make any money while in college. It was NCAAs fault for not figuring this out earlier.

And let's not forget shoe companies. There are some P5 schools LIKE ALABAMA who are probably stockpiling a slush fund, as I type this, to buy recruits.Edited for accuracy
Why is this BS limited to football and basketball ? I see a lot of title IX lawsuits. If ALABAMA pay the quarterback, you need to pay the shortstop on the softball team.
This BS and the transfer portal will destroy college sports, (with help from the weak NCAA)

They can sell their likeness too, only problem - I doubt companies will be lined up for a SS on a college softball team. This will only really benefit the two main money sports. Maybe T&F, but mainly Football and Basketball.I am actually surprised a college softball video game was not made by EA back in the day when they were pumping out a new college sports games every year...how hard would it be to make a collegiate softball game? I imagine a baseball game engine could be updated for it with some tweaks.
How many people have purchased EA NCAA Softball 20?

There's just too much wiggle room in all this. Money may not come directly from schools, but car dealers, shoe companies, etc will funnel money to players. (and recruits)
When the QB is making 5000 dollars an appearance signing autographs and the center snapping him the ball is getting 0, it will cause internal problems on the team.

It happens on the left and on the right. We see it with pro-life issues. We see it with economic and market issues big time. Free speech issues. You name it.

Probably advantages us.We have been training/prepping our athletes on how to legally take advantage of this for quite a while. I think they will have a head start on some. It would be interesting to see how much Malik rakes in. One would think with all the hype lately he will do well.
