    The ruling defines the athletes as amateurs, but the "use of their names, images and likenesses in TV broadcasts and video games" is only DERIVED from their athleticism... therefore, IMO, they should be compensated for the value of their "brand". Somehow, they have to take part in the windfall.. to continue to fail to do so is to reinstate a plantation system of chattel servitude.

    The failure of the NCAA to moderate its greed and avarice: making literally millions and millions of dollars on the work of student athletes without fairly compensating them; will eventually be its undoing. Gluttony personified...
