For all of you crying out about the exploitation of college football student athletes, the Dream League Football Association may be just what you’re looking for.
… The DLFA shall hold an open market player selection draft in March of each year, as well as, a supplemental player selection draft on a date subject to future announcement. The DLFA shall have both a soft and a hard salary cap. For further salary cap related details, please see full story at: BFNN Sports.
Players in the DLFA must be at least 18 years of age, possess a high school diploma or have a G.E.D. equivalent.
Its mission statement is simple.
Says Billy D. Hawkins, CEO of Citizens Capital, “six years ago we formed the outlines of the DLFA as we under took a military review of the lay of the land as it stood in both professional and collegiate football. Combined with this we have a very unique perspective. In 1973, I was present as a fan in San Antonio to personally eye witness the arrival and rise of the then ABA’s Spurs franchise. I saw George Gervin; Dr. J; Moses Malone; George McGinnis; Artis Gilmore; James Silas; David Thompson; Larry Kenon and Super John Williamson, as young professionals five years before the rest of the world ever got a glimpse. There was no national or regional television broadcast, no ESPN, no TNT and no internet at the time, today the landscape has changed. Also, I personally experienced the plight of the “athlete-student” as a scholarship, college football player. These experiences left a deep impression upon me. Today, as a businessman, the timing is appropriate to step in with a new product amongst the existing climate of greed, arrogance and comfort.” [Emphasis added.]
In other words, if the colleges can exploit these kids, why not us?
This should be fun to watch.
