WNBA commissioner has her doubts about paying college athletes

The debate around the Fair Pay to Play Act’s central mission is already muddled

The debate around the Fair Pay to Play Act’s central mission is already muddled

Senator Nancy Skinner, the legislator behind the controversial law, believes that athletes who are committed to the ever-growing rigors of collegiate life "are handicapped in so many ways, and it's all due to NCAA rules".

Also, have the other top teams in college football closed the gap on Alabama and Clemson through the first month of the season? California's law is three years away from going into effect, but juniors and seniors in high school who are now making decisions on where they will play collegiate sports would be able to take advantage of the law by the time their collegiate careers are over. "Unfortunately, this new law already is creating confusion for current and future student-athletes, coaches, administrators and campuses, and not just in California", the organization said. He added that the bill is a necessary step in stopping the exploitation of student-athletes, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds. If student-athletes take any money or even receive special treatment, they could be at risk of losing their eligibility and their athletic program could be severely punished. The NCAA has come out vehemently denying the new law's effectiveness for paying students and says that it has already begun to cause confusion with an athlete's amateur status for global play among other problems.

The NCAA made over $1 billion in revenue past year.

"I think [the NCAA is] corrupt and it's a bunch of people taking advantage of kids, and doing it under a mask of 'fair play'".

Although relatively few college athletes of either gender ever advance to professional competition, women's opportunities for going pro are particularly scant compared with men, leaving them little or no chance of cashing in on their talents during their prime, proponents said.

Earlier this week, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed bill SB 206 into law, allowing for college athletes to profit off their name and likeness.

"As a membership organization, the NCAA agrees changes are needed to continue to support student-athletes, but improvement needs to happen on a national level through the NCAA's rules-making process".

The NCAA says that only about 20 of its more than 1,000 schools actually profit from their athletics departments.

The latter possibility is why California's law was a good idea. If they are only focused on pursuing money, they will never be satisfied, as an adage in Ecclesiastes 5:10 teaches.

"I just think we can not get in this thing of paying somebody", Holtz added.

Under the proposed IL bill, student athletes would be allowed to seek professional representation from athletic agents or attorneys.

"I think it's especially relevant to note that this whole enterprise is entirely professional, except the players are not paid", Nevius told NBC News.

If movements like these are successful, they may thwart the NCAA's ability to pressure states with threats to keep them from sanctioned games and tournaments.

California's law could give schools in that state a strong recruiting advantage, which would prompt other states to move quickly to catch up.

"There are a lot of people who are trying to get a piece of the athlete who do not have their best interest in mind and are out for nefarious means", he said.
