Quote:
Granting name, image and likeness rights would allow athletes to be compensated for what is everyone else's birthright. Proponents argue that the violin prodigy in college is allowed to play in Carnegie Hall. Athletes wearing their school's gear can't establish their own YouTube channel.

The NCAA has long argued that further compensation beyond the current model would blur the lines between amateurism and professionalism.

Slave masters never want to give up control over their slaves.

And I believe people who work for the NCAA are professionals; their income is dependent on college athletes, who at the least are employees who generate revenue, and from a lot of angles, can be considered just as professional as the guys in suits who never risk blowing out a knee.
