NCAA Will Permit Athletes to Profit off of Images and Likenesses
[quote] The chairman of the NCAA board of governors says the association hopes to avoid a court battle against states that are attempting to pass laws aimed at dismantling the NCAA’s rules.
The NCAA board voted on Tuesday to allow athletes to profit from their names, images and likenesses, but much work still needs to be done to determine how that will work within NCAA rules.
Ohio State President Michael Drake said the board hopes that “all who are interested in the future welfare of student-athletes would work with us to get to that point and using reasonable processes to get there.”[/quote]
Most importantly means that NCAA Football games can finally return and player names can be used.
About damn time. It’s absurd that colleges have been able to heavily profit off these kids without them making some of it themselves. Especially since most of them will have their football “careers” end as soon as they graduate.
