Will Leitch: ‘The NCAA’s Case Here Was Not Strong’ | MSNBC

  1. Mark Emerett, President of the NCAA, A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION, MAKES +/- 5 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. Mr. EMERET IS WORTHLESS

  2. MSNBC nobody cares 16 minutes into the video 3 comments unless your stories about Trump nobody cares

    1. Right, one would have to be very low IQ to base story relevance on the number of comments. Especially when nearly half of the comments are from PR firms or Bots.

    2. To your point, Trump is such a polarizing subject, you either stand with America and dislike him, or you stand against America, while trying to defend him.

  3. Little Fauci fanboys, with little fauci fanboy flippers yes. Where is the humpty dumpty egghead of the C.D.C.

  4. As the father of a college student who has had to take out huge loans to get through school – this rankles me! Major college athletes already get FREE TUITION AND ROOM AND BOARD! THEY GET TO GRADUATE WITH NO DEBT!

    1. Up in Canada there are top tier universities that rival American Ivy League schools for academic excellence. For a Canadian student it costs about 20% of an Ivy League school, and for an American student (foreign student fees) it costs about 40% of that Ivy League school. My daughter goes to McGill University in Montreal where there are a lot of American students. Those American students (and their parents) love McGill and they rate it as being 100% the equal of America’s top schools. And for way, way less money.

  5. This is a good ruling, it starts to chip away at the ridiculous power structure the NCAA created on the backs of amateurs.

  6. What’s crazy is if these greedy institutions had just thought to properly feed, house, and clothe these athletes that they have used to make their billions, this may have never been an issue. Pity and a fitting end to this empire.

  7. As the father of a college student who has had to take out huge loans to get through school – this rankles me! Did the judges even consider the fact that major college athletes already get EVERYTHING PAID FOR? FREE TUITION AND ROOM AND BOARD! THEY GET TO GRADUATE WITH NO DEBT!

  8. Just create “College of sports” as career prospects. People who don’t make it to the pros can then work as club managers, show hosts, sport journalists, sport agents, medical assistants, physio, rehab and sport trainers, athletic directors, sporting code regulators, sport coaches, team managers, front office executives, technical directors, sporting directors etc.
