Without college football, he'd be Martin Jenkins, the guy that bags my groceries. These kids need to be careful biting the hand that feeds them.
Calm down and learn to make your point without being a chotch.
It's pretty rich that you call someone a "chotch" in the same post as saying Martin Jenkins would be bagging your groceries if it weren't for football. I'm not sure if that's racism or just pure ignorance at work?
Also, since you seem not to have noticed despite your infinite wisdom, you can't
go to the NFL or NBA straight out of high school. You don't think it's mighty coincidental that the only two sports that generate money in college athletics are the only ones where the player can't turn professional?
And, again, you're somehow missing the whole point of the lawsuit. Every single D1 program has entered into an agreement not to compete on what contract to offer players. There is only one contract available to sign. Who are you to tell someone that's all they deserve?
