Five Senators (D) to Reintroduce Sweeping College Athlete Bill of Rights in Congress
https://www.si.com/college/2022/08/03/co...nsfers-nil

Quote:The 2022 version of the bill provides athletes with little-to-no restrictions on NIL deals and allows for group licensing. In the only real limitation for athletes, states and schools can prohibit endorsement contracts with entities from particular industries, such as alcohol and drug companies, as long as the same restriction applies to the school or if the deal violates rules that all students are subject to. Schools are prohibited from arranging NIL deals for athletes, the bill says.

- little-to-no restrictions on NIL deals

Quote:The Bill of Rights encompasses sections about health and safety, scholarships, school accountability and gender equity. It charges the Secretary of Healthy and Human Services to develop health and safety standards. The bill also creates a medical trust fund to cover costs of out-of-pocket medical expenses for athletes to use up to five years after their eligibility expires and requires those schools with a $50 million-or-more budget to finance athlete medical costs and medical insurance for at least four years after graduation.

- Health and Safety standards (not from the NCAA)
- Medical Trust
- Post-Grad Insurance

Quote:According to the bill, athletes can enter a pro draft and return to school if they did not receive compensation and if they notify the athletic director within seven days of being drafted. The bill requires schools to provide athletes with scholarships until they complete their undergraduate studies, something often referred to as a “lifetime scholarship.”

- Can enter the draft and get drafted but then refuse to sign deal and go back to college.
- Lifetime Scholarships to go back to school whenever you want


Quote:Book and Blumenthal’s bill allows athletes the freedom to transfer an unlimited amount of times without sitting a year out, a right the NCAA currently grants to athletes only one time. Athletes would be required to give seven days notice and cannot transfer during the season or 45 days preceding the start of the season.

- Unlimited Transfers

Quote:The bill establishes a nine-member regulatory commission to ensure schools and conferences are following the law. The commission, which must include at least five former athletes, will be charged with enforcement. The bill also requires schools to provide annual public reporting of their total revenues and expenditures, including compensation for athletic department personnel and booster donations as well as reporting on the number of hours athletes commit to athletic activities.

- New regulatory body that is not the NCAA
- 9 people to police over 130 FBS programs

Wow.

Sooo, if this passes, the NCAA apparently just got the cover that they have been hoping for.

Interesting.

Isn't Blumenthal the same idiot that lead the Big East suit against the ACC? How'd that work out?

The 2005 case... I thought they settled that, so it was a win-win. There aren't many Senators that know much about college athletics so I guess he's an expert with Booker as the poster boy.

The article also allude to a Tuberville/Manchin bill that is "bipartisan."
That one will probably be more University friendly and have more traction.

Quote:The announcement Wednesday comes on the same day that former football coach-turned senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) told SI that he and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) are in the process of acquiring feedback with intent to draft an NIL bill of their own.

My guess is that's just them letting the others know that they want a seat at the table.

Yep. Got UConn perhaps permanently relegated to the minor leagues.

Lead to UConn getting blackballed by BC and the ACC.

Manchin happens to be one of Nick Saban's BFFs from back home in West Virginia. Nick will provide Joe with plenty of feedback.

And yes, the Blumenthal lawsuit led to UConn being blackballed from the ACC. The exposure was good for his political career, but bad for UConn.

RE: Five Senators (D) to Reintroduce Sweeping College Athlete Bill of Rights in Congress
The most interesting thing is what is NOT in Blumenthal’s proposed legislation. He has been a huge proponent of forced revenue sharing with the players. That doesn’t appear to be in this bill. This bill basically provides cover from the federal government and allows the NCAA’s amateur model to continue. Yes, it’s possible a separate bill covering revenue sharing will be introduced—-but my guess is they have split that provision from the bill over concerns that revenue sharing would prevent the bill from passing.

I would not be surprised.

This article says Booker plans to introduce a separate bill on revenue sharing:

Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and three other Democratic senators are filing the newest version of the 2020 College Athlete Bill of Rights in Congress this week, per Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger. Booker is not stopping there, however, as he plans to introduce a bill that will break down a revenue-sharing framework.

I read an article on the Tuberville/Manchin deal. They’ve been lobbied by both the SEC & PAC12 to intervene so would definitely be more restrictive but the article mentioned that they’d have to walk a legal tightrope to hold muster against lawsuits after SCOTUS’ declaration last year. Seems there’s no bill there yet just a bunch of grab assing

Right. I said as much in my post. Like I said, splitting off a provision like that is usually done by legislators because they are concerned that a specific controversial section of the bill might prevent the overall bill from passing. That tells me that they were probably seeing substantial opposition to that provision of the bill....thus, the revenue sharing provision is not nearly as likely to become law.

Yeah, that's the kind of forward thinking we need in college athletics.

I think with the government might past bills to protect all the schools as well. The law will curb schools like Texas A&M and Miami Florida from cheating in the NIL.

RE: Five Senators (D)Reintroduce Sweeping College Athlete Bill of Rights in Congress
Fun fact: The "transformation" committee is now spending some of its time strategizing for a congressional lobbying campaign.

In addition, the committee contemplated the intersection between potential enhancements to student-athlete support and benefits regulations and congressional engagement.

The Transformation Committee received an introduction to the NCAA government relations office and discussed congressional engagement strategy, tactics, and policy.

The presidents and chancellors serving on the NCAA Division I Transformation Committee met with the committee co-chairs to discuss a number of strategic issues, including presidential engagement, preparation for the August 3 NCAA Division I Board of Directors meeting and congressional strategy.

Yay!
