It's crazy that it took this long before a solid bill was put in place to help college athletes get paid. I've always wondered why college athletes never make any money off their likeness. Now, there will be a few people that will say stupid stuff like, "They shouldn't be focused on the money right now" or whatever dumb line NCAA officials have used for years to exploit athletes.

When it comes to NOT paying these college athletes for their likeness, there isn't an excuse in the world that makes sense to me. It alls comes back to corrupt money-hungry systems taking advantage of struggling athletes. With this new bill, we can finally see some of that money going to college students.
