NCAA Draws a line in the sand

Recommended Posts

Shaping up to be interesting. I imagine the NCAA is well within their legal rights to deny membership to programs that don't comply to their rules

 

NCAA says California schools could be banned from championships if bill isn't dropped

 

The NCAA is ratcheting up its opposition to a California bill that would allow college athletes in the state to earn compensation for the use of their own name, image or likeness, beginning in 2023. (FULL ARTICLE)

This could play out in an interesting way. Being that lawmakers in California might not want to kowtow to the NCAA, they could be determined enough to keep the bill and push it on into law. That leaves the NCAA at a point where they either have to make amendments allowing the financial compensation of players or be willing to lose those schools in the state of California, to include media darling So-Cal. Regardless of which happens, I would imagine other states will follow suit and propose similar bills. 

What would be really interesting is if the NCAA does expel those schools from the league. I could see the folks over there getting on the horn to other major schools to form a separate league to rival the NCAA. It's been talked about before, but this could be the spark that gets that fire burning.

Monetary support could be given in different ways to the athlete from gaming likeness without "payment":. For example, Joe RB who plays at SDSU could get help with college expenses, whether it's tuition or other needs, without receiving a physical check. But if he transfers to say, Delaware, after his sophomore season, he loses that support as he is now with another school and could only be compensated if his likeness is now used with permission of his new school. (Greater minds than mine would have to figure out all the nuances and semantics of that, but I'm sure it could be done.)

The thing about lines in the sand is that the tide always comes in, will be interesting to see how this plays out.

 

 

Unless you're in the desert. Very few oceans out there.



Another thing to wonder about is how "name, image, or likeness" is to be defined. Would a player be able to earn money from a television network that airs their games? Player interviews? Would a player be able to endorse a product, service, or business?
