You might better ask why universities are so dead-set against this bill. Well, let's see. UCLA has a $280M deal with UnderArmour; Ohio State $252M with Nike; Texas $250M with Nike; Louisville $160M with Adidas -- the list goes on and on, all built on the images of the sports stars at the schools. Is it really so outrageous that the stars should be able to sell their own image? At any rate, it's not hard to see why the schools like it the way it is.
And yet all those deals somehow have not impacted their non-profit status..... amazing
but Zion making a 100 dollars on an autograph...now THAT would
