#1 It's simple, if they get paid, they aren't college athletes, they're professionals and every california team is no longer in the NCAA.

#2 A close look might reveal players are already getting indirect compensation and have been for many years.

#4 Beso, you could look at this from the moon without a telescope and see that they've always been getting paid.

#5 You can also see teams who over do it, get caught and have to set out a season. Alumni are some of the worst abusers about giving perks to "help" recruiting. If they are going to openly let the players go pro the should let the teams have stock holders and such.

And no more public money.

#7 I don't understand how a new California law can change NCAA rules. And if the athletes, their teams and colleges violate NCAA rules they will be disqualified. So is Newsom creating his own California College Athletic Association?

I agree that there is some hypocrisy to denying college athletes get paid, one way or another. But if Newsom is behind something like this I automatically assume that somehow it must be wrong.

#8 Alumni are some of the worst abusers about giving perks to "help" recruiting.
A football lineman at University of Oklahoma, who later went pro, remarked that he had a "part-time student job guarding a farmer's empty field -- so he drove out there with his textbooks and studied the listed hours".
