I doubt you’ll be very shocked to learn that players from other colleges have begun contacting the National College Players Association with unionization questions of their own. Here’s the quote that should wake up schools:
Bohannon, who is in his final year of eligibility, said he wasn’t necessarily advocating for a union but wanted athletes to have more rights.
“Being a Republican, I don’t like the whole unionization thing, I don’t think that’s probably the best option,” he said. “But right now it’s really, there’s not many other options for our student-athletes, so I think it got the necessary publicity that we need, and hopefully the NCAA listens to some of our voices.”
A lot of these kids are begging for meaningful dialogue on serious issues that are important to them. Ignore them at your own peril.
