A sign the Apocalypse is near

Another crazed Left Coast commie pinko politico threatens the NCAA:

Wait… Mitt Romney?  Mitt Freakin’ Romney?

Y’know, if you really think you’re facing an existential crisis and Mitt Romney’s coming for you, maybe it’s time to make a deal.  Just a thought…

    The ncaa is on the wrong side of the argument from a t least a few different perspectives here. It’s not illogical that Romney sides against them from a free market/individual freedom perspective. Anecdotal ly, from talking with people I meet at business functions, the ncaa argument has lost public support from both sides of the aisle. I obviously haven’t seen national poll on the issue

    • From the bipartisan calls for reform (for whatever the motivation), the National Corrupt Athletic Association is maybe a few rungs above the Mafia, ISIS, MS-13, and the Colombian cartels in popularity right now.

      NCAA, heal thyself before others force cod liver oil down your throat.

      The author of Romney/Obamacare knows all about the free market.

    Continuing to portray this as a left vs. right issue (or acting bemused when this politician, state, body, etc. comes out in favor of this), is pretty ridiculous – it has simply become another pander for politicians….

    “I make money on your image and likeness not you.” I don’t know anyone personally who argues the NCAA is on the right side of this trade anymore. A universally backed issue is one politicians can get behind. All 50 states and congress (soon and soon) can’t be wrong? Well never mind.

      I’ve got a smart friend who only casually follows college sports. He thought it was about paying college athletes. He told me about a college choir that applied for NCAA membership so they could get paid. Once I explained to him that they already could get paid for anything, but an NCAA athlete couldn’t even take a paid internship in their major, or get paid to sell Bubba’s Used Cars, then he understood.

      The general public probably still doesn’t get this and are waiting for their fearless leaders to tell them how to think.

    Mitt, where are you now that the nation needs you? You should be running for President, but here you are, fussing over the NCAA.

    Although Mitt is a multimillionaire and career politician who always has a free hand for lobbyist; He has a history of always falling into the loser’s bracket. Perhaps he chose to be on the winners side or maybe a lobbyist just wrote down what he wanted Mitt to say

      Starting Bain Capital and becoming a multimillionaire in private equity now qualifies as “career politician”?

      Who knew!

      For the hundredth time Richard, nobody is saying the athletes don’t get compensation. The issue is artificially capping their compensation below market value.

    There is a lot of sentiment out there that the NCAA is unfair. Because the NCAA IS unfair.

        During the 2012 campaign, an Obama ad featured a man who worked at a steel mill until Bain Capital bought it and closed it. A year or two later, his wife lost her job and benefits (unrelated to Bain). After that, she contracted cancer and died about five years after Bain closed the steel mill.

        So, for intellectuals, it’s a straight line between Mitt Romney and death from cancer.
