    Oh he’s right. He has been for supporting players likeness for years. I would imagine if KSR could search the archives, we would see press release evidence for those that don’t believe it. So yeah… now Kryshisski without looking at specifics… says a general statement matching a political type blurb, and media all over it with headlines.

    Where was this media years ago? We know.

      They can’t be very observant with their heads so far up K’s butt.

    What the NCAA does will never stand up because it doesn’t know how to institute something that will be meaningful. They don’t know how to punish cheaters aka: UNC and the academic scandal; UL and the strippers; U Miami and the parties, strippers, cash, Ohio St and the selling of memorabilia; USC and the housing situation. They let all of those institutions slide though they all deserved punishment so how can one expect the NCAA to come up with something meaningful for players compensation for their likeness? I’d be more likely to win multiple lotteries of millions of dollars before the pompous fools and lethargic morons of the NCAA do anything meaningful. The only thing the NCAA has succeeded in doing is line their own pockets and inflate the huge egos they have.

    Easy stance to take.
    Much harder one is to ask him about China and Nike and nba. Anyone at Socialist sports radio gonna ask or naw? Communism is awesome seems to be the New Democrat platform so why are people in Hong Kong fighting it? Why are Nike and NBA scared of China? Or go with easy kids should get paid softball questions

      What in the hell? I think you took every talking point and just vomited it out.

    I’m sure that comment will get deleted because ksr writers are charmin soft unless they’re virtue signaling something easy.

    Cal was also strongly against graduate transfers when a friend of his lost his coaching gig after one of his players transferred and he had a bad season {I’m sure it was not his coaching ability that lost the job}. But now Cal is all for it taking a transfer from another college because he thinks it will help him and to hell with the other school. Facts are every coach will say and do anything if they think it will help them win. Transfer did not help us get a title last year, hope it helps more this year.

      Look it’s mashbum, the turd in the punchbowl, also a liar, fraud and spin doctor.

      Have you ever had an opinion on something and then at another point in life thought differently about that opinion? Ever? No? Well if not, you’re the only person in the world who has never changed how they felt about something. I don’t think that says something good about you.

      mash makes a valid point…

      Oh look it’s Looopy, there’s two turds in the punchbowl.

      To be clear, Cal has always been against taking graduate transfers from mid-major programs, which are more adversely affected. And he doesn’t like when a kid bolts without sitting down with his coach to talk things through.

      So let’s put it in context. He’s never been strongly against all graduate transfers and now is strongly in favor of it if he thinks it will help him. That you putting words into his mouth.

      That is mashbum’s MO, he takes bits and pieces of truths and mixes them with lies to suit his agenda and he’s not even good at it.

    Universities will be in control and certain universities will be in control of them. Certain players will get theirs as they are now and others will get an increased stipend. To think your going to build s better mouse trap to solve this issue the most ridiculous presentation possible. The giant rats will laugh and proceed to control the cheese…any solution start will semi pro club sport divorced from educational institutions… if education is involved it the athlete can walk into the admissions door and lay his money down.
    Yes it was like this a hundred years ago and is cycling back to its roots for more reasons than money.

  7. Cattington

    And, you know…googling the topic brought be to an article from feb. 2018 where Cal said players should be paid…and from oct. 2017…but yeah, he’s never said anything about it.

    No, it won’t be settled by Congress. It’ll be settled by the courts, which will uphold the NCAA’s authority, as they have for decades, including the Supreme Court.
