Paying Athletes

I know in my thoughts I've jumped around on all sides of this issue.  I found this link originally on Deadspin.

"The truth, however, is if there is money to be made, the NCAA finds a way around all the complications.  When it is time to negotiate the complications of getting a $4 million dollar per year coach onto campus, the NCAA finds a way to get the deal done.  When they have to negotiate multi-year TV rights deals, international broadcast restrictions, and complex zoning regulations in order to prepare for the Final Four, they get it done.  But when the athletes come to the table demanding their share of the gravy train, the response suddenly becomes “we can’t figure out how to make it work, it’s just too complicated!”  This form of intellectual laziness is problematic from an organization that has gobs of PhDs in its association.  "

Not specifically Alabama related, but always interesting.
