Chaser.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) played college football at Stanford and was part of the committee hearing. He noted how many of the NCAA’s rules need changing throughout its duration and pointedly questioned Emmert.

Emmert noted that while the NCAA had made its concussion protocols better in recent years he admitted that there were no ways to penalize schools that don’t follow protocols.

“As a former college football player I know that for athletes who do things wrong, like for an athlete who sells his jersey to get a little bit of money so maybe that their family can fly out and see them, there are strict consequences enforced regularly for athletes who make those mistakes,” Booker said. “But when it comes to the health of their brain, what we now know about traumatic brain injury, that you’re not enforcing this standard is exactly the problem.”

If you think these people are full of shit, it’s only because they are.

  2. To be fair, I don’t agree with Booker’s politics, but he hit the nail on the head here. When you appear to have Booker and Lee on the same side of an issue, it’s time to admit defeat and find a way to reform yourself.

    there are strict consequences enforced regularly for athletes who make those mistakes*

    Curiously, he used “mistake” here. There’s not a college football player in America who doesn’t know it’s against the rules to profit from this or any kind of action. Imagine, a politician excusing behavior when it fits their narrative.

    Has Senator Booker been seen with a new beard lately? Rosario was only signed through the primary season

    the only reason they are “full of shit” is because if they don’t continue to be full of shit, your fellow members of the Bar Association will sue the shit out of them for admitting to being complicit to head injuries. If they could do something without a $100B coming their way, they most likely would. Maybe if lawyers weren’t the only group more concerned about money than College Athletics Administrators something would get done.
