FLY MEET ELEPHANT GUN. Tattoogate is not some sweeping affirmation of the rightness of the NCAA and their insane effort at maintaining a chattel systems with talented athletes, but a further indictment of the anachronism of barring players from dipping their beaks to get a taste of that on which their institutions gorge themselves. I'll let Duane Long to spell it out in full.
First, when is the NCAA going to join the 21st century and allow a stipend? You are still going to have violators but the numbers will go way down when these kids have a few dollars in their pockets. All the money that is going into the member schools bank accounts from these athletes but they can't put any of it in their pockets, yet they want them to turn down money and fringe benefits? Ridiculous.
