Sharrif Floyd leads new class action against NCAA and major conferences

On the same day college football players at Northwestern cast ballots regarding whether they want to unionize, the latest lawsuit attacking not just one school but the entire system landed in federal court in Minnesota.

Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, who played college football at the University of Florida, is one of seven named plaintiffs in a class action filed against the NCAA and 11 major conferences on behalf of all football, men’s basketball, and women’s basketball players. The complaint describes the NCAA and its school as an “illegal cartel” that restrains trade by fixing the cost of athletes at scholarships plus room and board.

Floyd’s lawsuit contains allegations similar to the lawsuit crafted recently by Jeffrey Kessler, long-time NFLPA outside counsel who is now attacking the NCAA not with a school-by-school effort to elect unions but with a kill shot to the cranium of the NCAA.
