"Bowl boycott would shock unfair system"

Excerpt (see news article cited directly above):

  • Was it really a fair deal for generations of football players to make, using one example among many, former Fiesta Bowl CEO John Junker a multimillionaire? Was it their job to provide him nearly $700,000 in annual salary, four complimentary county club memberships, a $2,250 a month car allowance (you know where a guy might get a reliable ride for that?) and an AMEX Black card on which he wrung up $4,856,680 over the last decade, an average of $1,330 a day, every single day, for 10 years?


  • Recently, many commentators have argued that the economic model for NCAA football is similar to the economic model for a slave plantation. 
  • I agree with that conclusion.
