On the case

Clifford Winston is not impressed with anit-trust policy (as implmeneted by Democrats or Republicans).

The legally sanctioned NCAA cartel has been much discussed and derided. Even the hit movie and book The Blind Side shows the NCAA cops on their silly mission.

The myth of amateur college sports is widely seen as a joke, but the hypocrisy of high-minded college athletics PR is widely accepted. Now Forbes reports the market valuation of the various "amateur" footbal programs.

Here is a situation where the "compassionate" among us have grounds for complaining about the exploitation of the players. To be fair, it should be noted that Congress and the President are on the case. They want a football championship playoff to replace the BCS Bowls.
