I never said he didn't get anything out of it.

He also did not just show up on Saturday and toss the ball around.

Most student athletes around the nation work hard to get on the field and are also required to work and sacrifice in many ways as part of the team and university.

It is a mutally beneficial situation.

I think this is the key point. A family takes care of each other, while 2 people in a business relationship make sure that every thing is fair and square because of liability and all that BS.

Big time programs are not making their players pay to come back and use the gym. Furthermore, what is the downside to NFL players and borderline NFL players busting their ass and setting an example for the current members of the program to emulate.

I for one am glad that Vanderbilt is catching a little heat for this (in my opinion) error in judgement.

He benefits the school benefits, but his motivation is entirely to help himself. Vandertbilt gave him an excellent free education and the opportunity showcase himself when they didn't owe him a dang thing, and now he is whining he isn't getting more.

When people say teammates are family. That's a stretch and always has been.

the liability excuse (im not a lawyer), seems like a stretch. supposedly they need to pay for a membership to use the practice field, but any other alum with a membership who isnt a ex football player cant use the practice field, can they?

Nothing to do with the NCAA unless its high school players. Schools have former players come back and train all the time.

So you think the liability insurance would not cover the school if it did something negligent and Rodgers was hurt because of it. Because Rodgers didn't pay a fee there would be no coverage?

If that is the case, the AD is certainly a bumbler. If his liability coverage is weak, he needs to shop for a new policy, not ban former players to avoid holes in the crappy insurance policy he bought.

Vandy made millions off Rodgers. He was featured in their media crap. He got paid how much again?

As true as much of that may be, his stunt comes across as at best a diva, and at worst a serious head case.

The military has a code of conduct that they try to instill in their members. It is a learning process.

Rodgers looks like an entitled athlete every much as Justice Cunningham and DJ Swearinger did for their complaints about getting the cold shoulder from their university.

Vanderbilt has way more issues to worry about than this right now. That place is a dumpster fire as far as the football program is concerned. My point is that addressing this should not be a priority for them at the moment and no one will remember this when they win four games next year.
