Image a player making good money playing ball. Why should he quit after 4 years. Drag out his degree for years.

So when these players who want to form a union at a private university paying $50k a year in tuition and pay taxes on that, I think those players won't form a union.

Who will be responsible for paying the union dues?

RE: NLRB says College Players Can Unionize
This is probably a big deal.

Not so much on the union aspect, but willing compensation by schools.

If student athletes are employees, which the ruling states, then they can be paid.
Would an upper tier school offer salary to win a recruiting battle for a 5 star? Yes.

Now consider the financial state of most SunBelt programs -
if flush programs can pay and subsidized programs can not,
what happens to the subsidized programs?

I love college sports - the passion, tradition.
But in more rational moments,
I know it's utterly ridiculous to include big business sports entertainment from a University.

This decision will even further amplify the difference between tiers in college sports,
and make us confront the reality of what they have become.

yes and wait till a team from some big time school in a pro-union state threatens a strike before the first game of a new season leaving thousands of fan's travel plans and concession workers and tv crews and network scheduling in limbo..
