Comparing a college athlete to an exploited mexican worker is offensive.
I could care less about what non-athletes get or don't get. Yeah, the exploited Mexican thing was probably a bit to far, but how can you say they are exploited but not the guys getting 10-25% of what their counterparts get simply because they are 8-10 months older? That is exploitation. I can't see how anyone can actually argue otherwise.
