It's only for the athlete's likeness. I bet the big universities and their attorney's find ways around it by getting some legal definitions of "likeness". That was my understanding of it anyway. I would bet named Jerseys are gone and maybe even numbered jerseys will be gone. Will be interesting to see if Madden games will continue to use names for the next round of video games because the kids definitely deserve a cut of that which has nothing to do with campus/tax/donor dollars... |
I'm happy the athletes can actually get some money, (some of the rules they live by are ridiculous and no regular student has to follow them in terms of having an income for spending money), but I don't think any of them will get rich off it. Universities will make sure of that. When they do, it's time to take that athletic cash cow and cut tuition as I'm looking at a 100k plus bill over the next 5 years for my kid to have the privilege of going to college....
