Hell hath no fury like a YouTuber scorned.

Donald De La Haye’s response to being declared ineligible is pure gold.

Like I said, 24-carat.

    We need to spread this, watch it over and over, etc. etc… let’s get this kid some views so he blows the revenue doors off of what he’s been making and get him in another tax bracket.

    This is going to make the NCAA so mad that the UCF coaches may have to kill another player

    You’ve got to admire the kid he finally called the NCAA’s bluff. Now they can look like what they really are a blotted bureaucracy just looking out for their multi billion dollar club. Kind of reminds me of Congress.

    The question is will anybody get it. I know intelligent people that don’t see the hypocrisy. And then will they care enough to do something.

    So the kid is complaining and mocking the NCAA for punishing him for knowingly breaking the rules. Additionally, they gave him the option of playing football or making YouTube videos. Makes complete sense in this day and age to moan about consequences. Dumb, silly or otherwise, thems are the rules. I know, these poor kids are not given anything and deserve this, that and the other. They used to say, “you can’t put a price on education”. Well, college athletes sure as hell can.

      You do realize that if he were on scholarship for anything other than playing football, he wouldn’t have had to make a choice, right?

      Your entire industry just called. They want you to work for room and board and some cool clothes for a minimum of two years before you can make any money off your skills. They’ve convinced the government to protect them with legislation exempting them from price fixing and other collusion, which also acts as a barrier to new companies coming into your industry that potentially wouldn’t take part in the rigged game..

      Not only that, if you take them up on their deal, you can’t do any side work, even if it has nothing to do with your industry. I hope you’ve got enough to make your mortgage and all for a couple years and don’t have any family that needs you to help provide for them. It’s a really great deal and you’d be an ingrate not to see it – your industry doesn’t think your time is worth as much as you do, apparently.

      They also said – if you don’t like it, if you think it’s unAmerican to restrict trade in this way, and that the market – not a protected industry – should be deciding what your skills are worth, not some central planning authority with that magnanimously claims to have your best interests at heart…well, watch your step, comrade.

      So…hope you’re going to be cool with this coerced apprenticeship – if you don’t like it, you can go do the 2nd best thing you’re good at. Unlike pretty much every other person in America.

      You know what’s more valuable than an education? A billion dollar industry where you dont pay the employees and restrict them from making any money so your multi year room and board deal is the only option if they want to maximize their best opportunity in life. That shit is priceless.

      Riddle me this, if the NCAA is so pious in their mission, why do they allow schools to admit athletes with transcripts far below the average admission standards for the rest of the student body? Is it because they are giving poor kids a shot at a “drug dealer to doctor” cinderella story or because the quality on the field has to be top flight to charge top dollar and there simply aren’t enough kids big and/or fast enough in pre law or the school or forestry to fit the bill? I’m not saying every player is a dumb jock who wouldn’t make it otherwise but chances are Isaiah Crowell wasn’t making it into UGA if he decided to drop football in high school and pursue his MBA.

      When they limit the roster to just students who were admitted on the typical standards and stop allowing players into the universities to play sports who would otherwise be rejected, the “they get paid an education” argument will hold water but until then it’s just a ruse for indentured servitude at best.
