Why don't basketball referees ever call palming or walking any more?
College football players DO get paid. They just don't value the education they're getting.
College athletes in a union.The end of college football as we know it.
You want a union? Fine. Now start paying taxes on that free education benefit you are getting.
I will never have sympathy for college athletes not being paid as long as they continue to have all that jewelry in their ears and tattoos covering them.
Don't believe the absurd hype about attendance at the Masters taking a hit without Tiger. Toughest ticket in sports and the course will be packed as usual.
I don't care what they say, a win in April is just as important as a win in September.
College athletes want to be treated like employees? Fine. That means they can get docked pay or even fired when they under-perform.
Way to go Bubba.
Puhleaze.......the last thing baseball needs is players doing a home run dance. It is pathetic enough on the football field.
Sports aren't as much fun anymore. Everything is about money.
A wild guess tells me over half of college football and basketball players wouldn't even be admitted to school on their own scholarly merits.
Congrats to Hank Aaron on the upcoming 40th anniversary of his historic home run. Still the true HR king in my book.
To the football players who want to be paid to play, you are being paid. Free education, free room and board. No school debt. Everyone else at your school would love that deal.
Those Northwestern football players may soon learn that top student athletes are treated far better than average university employees.
Reading all these headlines about the Braves burning an American flag, you'd think that the team's players and front office took a giant flag on the field and set it on fire while bad-mouthing the President and spitting in the face of veterans. It was an accident, people.
Kudos to Terehan for a brilliant performance Wednesday. Same for Santana the previous game before the bullpen blew his fine performance. Keep it up, guys.
College football players are still the same as 30 to 40 years ago.....spoiled rotten and arrogant. Why not end athletic scholarships all together and see who wants to play for the fun of it???
See kids, free throws ARE important!
If universities and the NCAA want football players who can read and write, raise admission standards.
Be careful what you wish for, union-backing college athletes. Take money from the boss' wallet and his expectations of you will start getting much, much tougher.
As much as I like and admire Chick-fil-A, I never stopped calling it the Peach Bowl.
10 year anniversary of Pat Tillman's death. What an inspiration and role model for today's over paid , selfish athletes and for all Americans.
Kicking pine cones out of my yard: more exciting to me than MLS.
I say let the Ivy League rules apply. NO SCHOLARSHIPS!
