Jay Bilas said ( about Chris Murphy ) : “Senator Murphy and Congresswoman Trahan have laid a necessary marker down with the College Athlete Economic Freedom Act in ensuring athletes have the same economic rights as literally everyone else, including every other student. In order to pursue education and their chosen field of endeavor, the field of athletics, athletes are treated differently than all other students: they are restricted by rule as to what they can earn or accept in the marketplace. No other student, on scholarship or not, is subject to an industry wide wage restriction. I believe that is profoundly unfair, especially in light of athletes’ roles as primary revenue drivers in this multi-billion dollar industry. It is past time to remedy this unfair treatment, and the College Athlete Economic Freedom Act goes a long way toward righting these historic wrongs. I commend Senator Murphy and Congresswoman Trahan on this thoughtful and comprehensive approach to providing athletes with the same economic rights and protections as everyone else,” External link

Jay Bilas said : “We all look at each other as equals, Grant said. We all realize that no man or woman is more important than the other. No sport is more important than the other. Longtime observers of college sports and the NCAA marvel over what athletes have accomplished this year. Tim Nevius, an attorney and former NCAA investigator, said too often the debate over whether college athletes should be paid overshadows other issues. That the NCAA made its COVID-19 guidelines to members schools mandatory after athletes pushed for more stringent requirements was a huge win for players’ rights, he said. I think that the message that the players are sending has staying power, Nevius said. They’re advocating for basic rights and fundamental fairness. College sports leaders often tout the NCAA’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committees as a shining example of how athletes are given the opportunity to influence policies. SAAC representative sit on all sorts of committees. They have input in the legislative process and voting rights. Gabe Feldman, director of Tulane’s sports law program, said SAAC provides athletes a voice, but little power. I think SAAC is a good group. And I think it’s important and I think it should continue, but it does not serve the same purpose as a unified structure that can actually have a true seat that the table, Feldman said. Reynolds, the Michigan player, compared SAAC to student-body government in high school. Theyre fine having the students vote on the brand of chocolate milk thats going to be in the cafeteria but when it comes to budget cuts and things of that nature thats when the student becomes pretty ignored, Reynolds said. Reynolds said the ultimate goal is that so-called seat at the table, but some who support the athletes question whether they can get there without help from lawmakers. Earlier this month a group of senators led by Democrats Cory Booker (N.J.) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) announced a c ollege athlete bill of rights they hope will be the foundation of sweeping legislation. Donna Lopiano, a former college sports administrator and coach who now runs a sports management consulting firm, said college athletes’ greatest power lies in their willingness to not play. The athletes have to realize that they can get what they need if theyre willing to do that, Lopiano said. Look at what the institutions are doing now just to play. If the athletes say, You know, forget about that money. Im not sure they know the power they have. A move to unionize football players at Northwestern was blunted by a National Labor Relations Board ruling in 2015. But Feldman said the players could get the representation they desire without a labor union. Just look at almost every professional association: Doctors, lawyers, dentists, plumbers, who arent in a union, but come together to benefit their profession, he said. Jay Bilas, a former Duke basketball player and frequent NCAA critic who now does work for ESPN, said college athletes are more aware of their power than ever before. He called this summer an inflection point for college athlete rights. Any decision about them should not be made without them,” External link

Jay Bilas said : “We all look at each other as equals, Grant said. We all realize that no man or woman is more important than the other. No sport is more important than the other. Longtime observers of college sports and the NCAA marvel over what athletes have accomplished this year. Tim Nevius, an attorney and former NCAA investigator, said too often the debate over whether college athletes should be paid overshadows other issues. That the NCAA made its COVID-19 guidelines to members schools mandatory after athletes pushed for more stringent requirements was a huge win for players’ rights, he said. I think that the message that the players are sending has staying power, Nevius said. They’re advocating for basic rights and fundamental fairness. College sports leaders often tout the NCAA’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committees as a shining example of how athletes are given the opportunity to influence policies. SAAC representative sit on all sorts of committees. They have input in the legislative process and voting rights. Gabe Feldman, director of Tulane’s sports law program, said SAAC provides athletes a voice, but little power. I think SAAC is a good group. And I think it’s important and I think it should continue, but it does not serve the same purpose as a unified structure that can actually have a true seat that the table, Feldman said. Reynolds, the Michigan player, compared SAAC to student-body government in high school. Theyre fine having the students vote on the brand of chocolate milk thats going to be in the cafeteria but when it comes to budget cuts and things of that nature thats when the student becomes pretty ignored, Reynolds said. Reynolds said the ultimate goal is that so-called seat at the table, but some who support the athletes question whether they can get there without help from lawmakers. Earlier this month a group of senators led by Democrats Cory Booker (N.J.) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) announced a c ollege athlete bill of rights they hope will be the foundation of sweeping legislation. Donna Lopiano, a former college sports administrator and coach who now runs a sports management consulting firm, said college athletes’ greatest power lies in their willingness to not play. The athletes have to realize that they can get what they need if theyre willing to do that, Lopiano said. Look at what the institutions are doing now just to play. If the athletes say, You know, forget about that money. Im not sure they know the power they have. A move to unionize football players at Northwestern was blunted by a National Labor Relations Board ruling in 2015. But Feldman said the players could get the representation they desire without a labor union. Just look at almost every professional association: Doctors, lawyers, dentists, plumbers, who arent in a union, but come together to benefit their profession, he said. Jay Bilas, a former Duke basketball player and frequent NCAA critic who now does work for ESPN, said college athletes are more aware of their power than ever before. He called this summer an inflection point for college athlete rights. Any decision about them should not be made without them,” External link
