    The bill does not say anything about the university giving salaries/stipends to the student athletes. Only that the students can make endorsement money from their image or likeness. If Adidas or Ford wants to use a player in its respective campaign that player should be paid by Adidas or Ford. The problem I see is how to determine how much money a university makes from specific student athletes in certain sports and how that should be divvied up with those players.

    Wouldn't it be better if they actually got paid endorsements so they could actually pay back for college? Maybe it would cost less for the tax payers.

    Tennis. Nobody cares.

    Let's be real, we're talking about Basketball and Football. Both NCAA leagues are in a monopoly with the NBA and NFL regarding league eligibility forcing talented star athletes to play for free and risk their futures on injuries to make schools rich.

    False. Quit talking like they have no options. Especially for basketball, they're perfectly free to go play over seas in Europe, or China for a couple years. But they won't, because they want the exposure they'll get playing NCAA ball.

    California just wants more people to feed their stupid entitlement programs. If these kids get paid, then they can get taxed.

    **** the government of CA.

    I agree. Some are earning a full ride with room and board paid, some at schools that costs up to or more than $80k a year. That’s nearly $400k in schooling after it’s all said and done. That is good money for a young professional and they leave qualified to make that it or more once they graduate. Hell of a lot better than a $20/40k a year job in construction after high school.

    If they want to earn more they can say no start their own business and be in the real world with real world mistakes.

    For the students that play sports that don’t bring in $50+ million, there should be subsidies from the sports that do imo. Also large schools with large endowments(Harvard has a current $51,000,000,000 endowment, that 51 billion), partial interest should be used to help qualified students and student athletes get an education.

    What’s all tax money? $50 mill is $50 mill regardless of where they spend it. Off sport scholarships will be paid from the revenues of the school. If football brings in $50 mill is a part of that revenue stream. If they did not have that scholarships and other items would be cut.

    Since you’re in NorCal I’ll share a story. One time the warriors were traveling to Miami to play the heat. At this time Agassi was living in Tiburon. He had a tournament in Miami at the same time. He invited Mullin to travel along. At this time Mullin was an original dream team member NBA all star and probably to ten player in the NBA. Agassi was top 5 in the world in tennis. Who had the cash for the to own his own private jet to Miami? Mullin shook his head saying he chose the wrong sport. Of course NBA pay is a lot higher now.

    Dead wrong.

    Neither of my alma maters fund tennis through taxes. Not a dime. They rely on donations and marketing deals. Both of my doubles partners played for Division 1 schools....neither of their programs were tax payer funded either. Title IX ****ed men's sports and as a result many are self funded.

    The dream team was 1992? Agassi was the 6th highest paid athlete at the time. Tennis players occupied 3 of the top 10 spots, 6 of the top 20.

    Lol your saying your education wasnt paid for by taxes. Ok. If that was the case lets stop funding all state and UC schools cause clearly they can fund themselves.
