    Fans have come to terms with high draft guys opting out of exhibition bowl games at years end. Wait until they start opting out of playoff games. Sh*t’s about to get real.

      Besides just being the right thing, allowing players to benefit from their name should have the added benefit of maximizing their playing time. I don’t believe a sponsor would take too kindly to a quitter sporting their brand.
      Of course said sponsor may feel the long term benefits of their client skipping “meaningless” games is in all their best interest. I dunno. A lot of my feelings of duty, responsibility and loyalty seem to be, well, just not popular these days.
      Okay boomer.

    So, if a player owns his NIL rights, can the networks use those images for commercials and promotional videos of the CFP without compensation to the player?

      The standard scholarship agreement assigns to the university the right to use the player’s name and image in the university’s promotional materials. That is why the universities have been able to put, for example, Jake Fromm’s picture on its media guide. The NIL rights under discussion now are about private citizen JT Daniels’s name, likeness and image that does not include UGA images. For example, he cannot sell use of his image
