college athlete union
Calling the NCAA and its five dominant conferences an “unlawful cartel”, three football players and a basketball player say their compensation was limited to scholarships, while universities, conferences, and the NCAA made billions off their labor.
According to the lawsuit, “as a result of these illegal restrictions, market forces have been shoved aside and substantial damages have been inflicted upon a host of college athletes whose services have yielded riches only for others.”
We’ve heard the question asked before in college athletics. But this time the answer could have a real impact on the way players are managed and compensated.
