People who follow the sports world, especially in college sports, know the topic of college athletes making money and how discussed it is.
It is understandable to not want students making money because they “work” for your business, but there are young entrepreneurs who have their own companies or YouTube channels for profit.
I agree student-athletes shouldn’t make any money from autographs or picture- taking appearances because they didn’t work to create anything. They just show up to get paid.
Entrepreneurs are creating clothing or logos building a future for themselves after their lock-up with the NCAA. YouTube content creators make videos that appeal to an audience and must create quality to gain views. Sometimes they make it big enough to gain money per view on a video.
Hard-working kids get the same restrictions as greedy athletes who are there for the money and not a good time.
