It is like saying 'oh, its ok to pay someone in Mexico $1 a day to work, they don't really have any leverage'. Doesn't make it right.
That analogy makes no sense at all.
How many non-athletes coming out of college even get a job, much less a signing bonus now? It's difficult to get a job period. All these players should be thankful that Americans overspend on entertainment and they get paid to play a game.
Comparing a college athlete to an exploited mexican worker is offensive.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
