While I’m on my high horse this morning, I thought I’d share something with you an alert reader sent me.
Check out the Georgia Bulldog toys you can buy here. Todd Gurley, Knowshon Moreno, Jarvis Jones, Matthew Stafford and A.J. Green, all bedecked in red and black, school jersey numbers included. So much for that “what’s on the front of the uniform is all that matters” stuff.
They’re all professionals now, so there’s no NCAA violation to worry about. But, assuming those five were paid for their names – and if they weren’t, it’s time to go see a lawyer, boys – doesn’t that shred the whole “how could the schools ever figure out a way to pay student-athletes for their likenesses?” argument?
Sharing money is such a bother, though. Can’t everyone just leave the schools alone about it?
