Subject: Getting Paid when your school uses a picture of you.

Not sure if any of us are following the Calif legislation, like that is something we want to do, yea right. But there is legal movement to pay athletes in some measure for whenever their likeness is used wherever. On the surface this only seems equitable, unless of course the feeling is that getting a free education is payment enough. If something like this really takes hold, I doubt MAAC schools could survive at the D 1 level. The expense to run a D1 program is bad enough. Our recent history also shows how hard it is to maintain a team from start to finish, now given players opt out if things aren't to their liking. How can MAAC like school student bodies build a school spirit around a team when the current D1 environment foster a mercenary type of mentality. If this new variable takes hold, I venture to say the MAAC schools as D1 programs are numbered. Teebow's comments aside are naïve.

The student-athletes will likely create a union, negotiate a CBA, and things will not change drastically.
