NCAA compensation rules violate antitrust law, court rules

A three-judge panel ruled Wednesday that NCAA compensation rules for college athletes violate antitrust law, Reuters reported.

“The NCAA is not above the antitrust laws, and courts cannot and must not shy away from requiring the NCAA to play by the Sherman Act’s rules,” the three-person panel wrote in what is known as the O’Bannon case.

The case, brought by athletes wanting some of the billions of dollars universities earn from football and basketball programs, came as colleges are under increasing pressure to provide athletes with better benefits.

The panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals also threw out a federal judge’s previous proposal that NCAA members should pay athletes $5,000 per year in deferred compensation, stating that compensation for the cost of attendance was sufficient.

Re: NCAA compensation rules violate antitrust law, court rules

I thought the perk to being a student athlete was the free ride to a degree? All the support one could dream of to achieve that degree.

5 to 1 says most of the athletes on that list blew the deal

Good ruling, IMO. If just one player should happen to get an education, then it's worth it to me.
