The NCAA asked the U.S. Senate, “Do you think we’ve made progress?” Um...what?! There has been zero progress. The NCAA has had over 115 years to allow economic rights to athletes. Yet, nothing has been done...intentionally.
Worth your time. After reading this, ask yourself whether this indicates the NCAA really cares about athletes, or cares more about keeping the money flowing to themselves instead of the athletes. The answer is clear.
Don’t listen to what they say. Watch what they do. Frustrated by delay? Yet, petitioning the US Supreme Court and lobbying Congress provided the excuse to delay. The NCAA has no intention of willingly allowing athletes any meaningful economic rights. Ever.
