College Football Unionization
Decision Opens a Can of Worms

Reason Magazine, by S.M. Oliva

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/31/2014 5:57:01 AM

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic? Kain Colter played quarterback at

Ok, then every dollar given to them by the school should be taxed, including their tuition!

Of course there´s no way to make this work.Are you going to have a different salary structure for every school? Will they have to pay their own tuition out of their paycheck?Even if you have standouts that could make a decent buck,why can´t he or he wait another couple years for the pros. The unions are desperate to open new doors but this takes he cake.They´ll be taking these kid´s unions dues they could need to eat on.

To me,they weren´t hired as workers so they have no right to unionize.What about the girls who don´t bring in that much revenue.

Simple, cancel all sports programs as well as their scholarships. The colleges can get back to their primary function...higher education and the majority of the scholarship athletes can get job at McDonalds or some other low skill place where their secondary education might have readied them for....?

All I know is that last week a friend of ours, a Northwestern graduate, who has faithfully and enthusiastically bought 6 season tickets a year for 25+ years, has cancelled his subscription because the parking fees suddenly went up by $6,000. You read that right...six thousand dollars. To park at Ryan Field.

I strongly suspect it will be unworkable to unionize a group that has at least 25% turnover per year and won´t think that paying union dues is such a good idea. I suspect that this will implode on its own because the idea is too stupid to survive even with unlimited government support.

Let guys like Saban get million dollar Nike Contracts while the players get kicked out for accepting a meal from a booster (unless you are JJohnny manziel). Great system.

What will the grown men who never attended college and live and die with every snap of a college football team do if sports is ended? Roll Tide!

This was a bad thing, but something needed to be done as the system was broken.

This is just a liberal wet dream. If those fools at the NLRB think they can shove this down the throats of College athletics, then the days of scholarships are over. No scholarships, no play, no NFL, no NBA and as a result, tryouts, you pay your way through school, and there goes the NFL and NBA ready made draft.

Go for it guys, I´m getting tired of athletes that blab into microphones without understanding a word they say. College stadiums will go the way of the Roman Coliseum.

Wrong, #17. We didn´t end slavery 150 years ago. We swapped ends with it and now every working man or woman is enslaved until somewhere in July. That´s when we finally stop working for our masters, those who will not work and begin working for ourselves.

Many of the comments point to the fact that folks believe only football is involved. Extend this to basketball, baseball, track, tennis, golf, lacrosse, hockey, field hockey,
and a long list of college sports that bring little to no funds to the schools. You know, the unintended consequences, and many of these sports field two teams, one men´s and one women;s. This is a nightmare for all concerned
and should be dumped asap.

The initial decision on this matter was an administrative decision made by a bureaucrat. It was not made by a federal court. That bureaucrat, an immigrant from Korea who wears a pink bow tie, is an Obama appointee who would have never been nominated by Obama if he were not about 100% pro union! you can safely bet on that.

College football is big business and brings in a lot of money. Everybody knows this. The academic education is only a side benefit that the rare student/player can take full advantage of. Lots of people love to watch college football. End the pretense, pay the players.

I had a class once at the odd time of 7 PM which was about a third football players. The poor things often looked like they´d been in a war or been beaten up, were often exhausted and had a hard time paying attention. Some of the money should go to the players.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

"I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film."

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
