Talk to the hand

Echo chamber thinking:

ACC commissioner John Swofford on potentially paying players in college basketball: “There’s no interest of people in higher education to go that route. There’s so many complications that come with it. I’ve not talked to a single athletic director, commissioner or president that has any interest in paying players.”

Gee, what a surprise.

Now if only you can get the courts to agree.

    Yeah, but did you think about asking the student-athletes, maybe?

    No interest in going that route until the courts say NCAA can’t prohibit that. Might change then.

    Just like you’ll never talk to a drug dealer who is interested in legalizing drugs.

    The thing is, they could just adopt the Olympic model and wouldn’t have to worry about figuring out how to pay athletes.

  5. Color me shocked that talking only with groups of people that have your same economic interests at heart will get you a bit of an echo chamber.

    Who would have thunk it? Management doesn’t want to pay labor!
