NCAA Suspends Five Baseball Players For Playing Fantasy Football 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Mar 1, 2017 12:43 pm

The NCAA has suspended five University of Richmond baseball players because they took part in fantasy football.

The five players will remain suspended until the NCAA completes the reinstatement process. Two of the players -- junior right-hander Keenan Bartlett and senior INF/DH Kurtis Brown -- are among Richmond's most valuable players.

The suspension is a function of the fact that the NCAA treats standard fantasy leagues just like gambling.

So stupid. I hate how dumbass leagues automatically assume that players can't be trusted playing fantasy football with their friends. What's even dumber is that it's not like they are playing fantasy NCAA baseball where they could compromise the integrity of the game. They are doing it for fun with football. NCAA is one of the most corrupt organizations in all of sports, they have no right to legislate morality to players. What hypocrisy.
