    I think he's upset that the NCAA is punishing players who profit from their own achievements. All this is meant to illustrate how wrong that is.

    But it is true that every single person who profits from college sports, but supports stopping the athletes from doing the same, is a dirty hypocrite.

    Should the schools be earning money off the players likenesses?

    Yes. Everyone involved should be making money. That's not the problem, money is a good thing. It buys designer clothes, fancy cars, hookers, cocaine, and sometimes even powdered milk and diapers for the babies that happen to pop out of the coked up hookers.

    The problem is that the athletes, who are responsible for earning most of that money, aren't allowed to keep any of it. Their hookers' babies all go without powdered milk. And that's just wrong.

    The NCAA is the most shady, hypocritical, inept, and ass backwards organization there is.

    But I still don't believe that college athletes should be paid.

    Instead of being paid, there should be a system in place where they receive free education, room/board, trashy white girl pussy, clothes/shoes, and are hired by local businesses because they had half a sack once.

    As a person who enjoyed some of what you described (We aimed higher than trashy white girl pussy), but also paid out from college fund savings and working.....There were athletes that got paid...as well as police that got paid off when the athletes misbehaved. Still wondering how a guy from Newark who showed up at my dorm in a church van was driving a New Suburban three weeks later.

    With the billions college athletes bring in to colleges by using their skills one the field they deserve monetary compensation of some kind legitimately. This way the kids dont have to worry about being suspended for taking money from boosters or for working what amounts to a no show job
