Major league baseball teams pay for minor league baseball.Â The NFL doesn’t.
CollegeÂ football is a free minor league for the NFL but the NFLÂ pays nothing. Sure MLBÂ draftst collegeÂ gradsÂ but at least MLB has Triple AAA, etc., to develop players. The sports pages are no longer an escape from reality….it’s worse than reality.
How does NCAA football justify paying head coaches millions of dollars annually but not pay its players? How do universities justify profiting from athletesÂ in return for a scholarship? The investment-return is an extremely tilted playing field against the players.
And no D1 playoff system. A national champiosnhip game decided byÂ a vote – an electtion. Politics at its worst.
NCAA D1 is a training ground for the NFL. Make it a true minor league. Let the NFL pay for it.
