Glad to hear that Chris D understood how to help his child in crisis. (I have girls too) That IS parenting and how you earn live and respect from your kids. Being there for them in cases like that gives you the ability to correct them without being harsh and violent. Great story.
This Gurley situation got me thinking about paying college athletes, and here is what I think.
You obviously can't pay college athletes because you couldn't control it or decide who gets paid, "Does a star player & a 3rd stringer get paid the same/Do female soccer players get paid as much as Alabama football players?"
I feel the only thing that could work is if there were NCAA authorized autograph sessions where a star player could be paid a pre set amount of money per autograph. The money would be put in a savings fund for the player to have access to after their eligibility is up. The funds could grow interest like a CD and players could draw a pre set amount of money out per month if they wish. The draw amount would fluctuate depending on cost of living. This way players are not paid by the NCAA for playing sports, but could make extra money in college for the sale of their likeness and fame.
What are your thoughts on my solution?
All the top ncaa athletes should coordinate a day whet the all very publicly sign memorabilia for money and dare the ncaa to do anything about it.
