Two cheers for Justice Kavanaugh

From his concurring opinion in today’s historic Supreme Court decision (NCAA v. Alston) smacking down the NCAA: “The bottom line is that the NCAA and its member colleges are suppressing the pay of student athletes who collectively generate billions of dollars in revenues for colleges every year. Those enormous sums of money flow to seemingly everyone except the student athletes. College presidents, athletic directors, coaches, conference commissioners, and NCAA executives take in six- and seven-figure salaries. Colleges build lavish new facilities. But the student athletes who generate the revenues, many of whom are African American and from lower-income backgrounds, end up with little or nothing.” Nailed it!

  1. I have given this issue more thought.

    Providing the students are not receiving a free ride, I am okay with them being compensated.

    Scholarships act as a form of compensation.

    I am okay with schools offering the choice between the scholarship or direct monetary payments. Then again, I am not saying that the cost of a free college for all NCAA D1 students is proportional to the profits yielded by top tier sports schools.
