Competition is a good thing. At least it will give kids who would normally go overseas another option.

When ole fussbottom sent that letter to the Cali Lawmakers warning them not to pass or sign the players get played bill....it had no effect on the lawmakers what. so. ever.

The National Collegiate Athletic Assn. warned Gov. Gavin Newsom in a letter Wednesday that state legislation allowing college athletes to be paid for the use of their name, image and likeness would be “unconstitutional” and “harmful.”

“Numerous legal scholars assert that SB 206 is constitutional and that an NCAA ban of California colleges from championship competition is a clear violation of federal anti-trust law,” Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), the bill’s author, said Wednesday in a statement. “The NCAA has repeatedly lost anti-trust cases in courts throughout the nation. As a result, threats are their primary weapon.

Believe all the rulings were wrong. The NCAA is a voluntary organization made up of member schools. This is like joining a club then suing because you got outvoted on the club rules.

The NCAA has a virtual monopoly on college athletics, and is thus affected by the Sherman Antitrust Act. It's not just a "club". They have been sued for violating the act in the past, and it isn't the last time.
