I think you could easily find 2500 players a year (willing to play) that could keep the level of competition close enough that the fans would still show up in droves.

I'm not really arguing against the players being treated better, nor am I saying that they shouldn't push the schools/NCAA for these changes and "just take what the universities give them."

Yep. And the headstart would funnel the more talented athletes towards the universities anyways,

And there will always be enough HS graduates willing to play by those decrees.

And let me just add that I do feel these players should be compensated more fairly.

How true is this really?
Commented on 5 responses to anti-union Mark Emmert's 'CFL players' argument on Apr 19 2014, 1:27p
Yes, without any players, the whole thing blows away.

If all the current college players in the US, or a majority of them, left college football to form their own league.

Maybe that's what Dersh is saying.

Until you come up with an example of a player outside the entire NCAA system who has marketability in and of himself, I think the point stands.

I agree with this, but it's like you said... 'any top 25 school'

We're talking about marketability.

100% is likely too much.

hehe.

I'm with ya.

I think that, for the most part, you could eliminate the restrictions on entering the NFL draft altogether.

Granted, there is no viable minor-league.

I was just thinking that if players had the chance to choose college or pro out of HS...

I think this argument, like you say, is by and large irrelevant.

Do you think there would be as much uproar over pay for play if cfb operated off the same model as MLB?
Commented on 5 responses to anti-union Mark Emmert's 'CFL players' argument on Apr 18 2014, 3:11p - 1 reply
I say pay the players.

Maybe walk-ons across America should unionize to get money from the scholarship players...
Commented on 5 responses to anti-union Mark Emmert's 'CFL players' argument on Apr 18 2014, 2:52p
Does anyone know if the benefits potentially gained by this union would extend to 'walk-ons'

And the countless 5-stars who flunk out of school, bust, etc. have zero marketability afterwards.

So really, all that is needed is connecting permanent injury to concussions.

I wonder about this too.

I thought the fight for better medical care was over.

Exactly. And really, it's the only thing they can do at this point.

The continued expectations among dim witted media types that Jameis should answer any questions is just great journalism

How will we judge whether the 4-teamer is a mistake or not?

Wholeheartedly agree.

I agree that if expansion happens (past 4), conference champs will be auto-bids.
