  • Northwestern Football Players Attempt to Start a Union

    I know everyone says that student-athletes should be happy receiving a free education but it has never made any sense to me that because you receive a free education you don't get the same rights that other students get. I am not saying a Union is the answer but the student-athletes need to start putting their foot down and saying enough is enough. The NCAA has run roughshod over student-athletes ruining careers over the dumbest infractions yet the schools and coaches do nothing to defend their "kids".

    I'm good with it. Mainly due to the gross imbalance between the way athletes and coaches are treated by the NCAA.

    I would love to see the athletes be treated more like actual students. Though I wonder how a lot of them will feel if that becomes a reality?

      NLRB rules that Northwestern football players are employees and not student-athletes and can form a union.
