Listen: California, Alberto Salazar, Lebron James discussed on Outside the Lines
"Long time. Why does this finally get done now. Well I honestly think because Lebron James realize that there was a social injustice going on ah and recognize that the fact that athletes who make all this money for the universities the conferences that they play the an and ultimately the delay and the final four the tournament at the end of the season they don't get compensated for it and and their likeness is being used and I think he recognized that as well as Draymond Green and they spoke up on the subject and I think we needed them to step up thank goodness they did and here we are today because of what what they wanted to get that being said at the counter argument to this bill within the state of California largely leans on the possibility that the NCWA will not allow California schools to participate in championships turning athletes and non revenue generating sports. How would you respond to that. Criticism good luck with that. I think I think he's losing California's schools. specifically at the end of the season is GonNa hurt revenue in which there that's why they're in the game to make money for themselves so if you take out California you are losing a large revenue who resource and I think quite honestly a lot of kids that are being recruited are gonNA come to California simply because they can make money off of their own liking and that's that's fair it but there's also another side of this where schools may not want to schedule against California schools thinking they have an unfair recruiting events. I would respond to that yeah well California's enough California's play against each other and then make revenue make make money for themselves so if that's the way they want to do it. that's that's fine but there are other schools other states that are going to get involved and and we'll play against those states. California will play against those states so so the the schools that are in California can play against the schools that are also going adapt this bill okay and everybody else and you know good luck to them and we appreciate you joining us into frankly. You've been ahead on this from the very beginning so congratulations on the outcome of this now. We can all hope that we can finally get. NCWA football video games back and have a great day.
