Re: College Sports
I agree that its the money and, related to that, amateurism.
There is so much money made by schools and coaches and TV networks, yet the athlete/students get relatively little. Recruiting, point shaving, and gambling issue can arise from that.
And the pressure to win (which is tied to money, winning teams make more money) pushes coaching, recruiting, eligibility, and booster behaviors into bad territory.
I don't see things changing much in the near future. The people that are in power are the ones that make the most money from the system.
