Former college player proposes new NCAA rules, but no union?

Former Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe took to Twitter to share his thoughts Wednesday's landmark ruling.

Big news broke Wednesday afternoon in the continual fight between student athletes and the NCAA: the regional office of the National Labor Relations Board ruled in favor of a group of former Northwestern football players, considering players employees and allowing the formation of a union.

Former Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe brought his unique point-of-view to the Internet, taking to Twitter to let the world know how a player might feel about such changes.

It all started with Doug Gottlieb saying something with questionable veracity.

Moe was quick to provide his own schedule, which sounds absolutely exhausting.

It wasn't just Gottlieb that Moe took issue with, as the former Tiger touched on unwanted potential financial (and academic) fall-out from a union.

Could smaller football programs end up shutting down? Moe thinks so.

Moe was quick to say that while he does not support the idea of the union, the NCAA is still in the wrong.

As great as it sounds, Moe's suggestion won't ever happen without something disruptive happening -- like, say, a union or a big lawsuit (and there are more than a few). It is also worth noting that the proposal is one of the College Athletes Players Association's (the group working with the players) listed goals.
