Years ago, were you the one who took exception to Crow’s reaction after our first Blackout Game? Packed house. Exciting game. Great crowd participation. And Crow opens his post game remarks by talking about a 700% jump in ASU apparel sales. It’s all a business now. The universities brought this upon themselves when they turned football into a cash cow. The unions have been trying to find a path to all this money for the last couple decades.
This is classic union negotiation tactics. Healthcare is really not an issue. The PAC-12 has already assembled a world class group of health and medical professionals to establish safety procedures and testing protocols. The National College Players Association already knows that. Therefore, it would seem like inviting the players to the party would be a harmless gesture.
But this would help set a precedence of college players having a right to govern college sports. Union lawyers will swoop in to take every aspect of university to court. If the players have a right to approve healthcare, they have a right to shared revenues. If they have a right to revenues, they have a right to set coaching salaries and approve sports budgets that would affect the player profits. Then they have a right to establish a fund for social reform; they have a right to direct the use of the money. Soon, the schools will be paralyzed, not by players, but by players representatives. Union lawyers will have an office right next to Crow’s.
