NCAA athletes have been granted, by the National Labor Relations Board, the ability to be considered ’employees’ and therefore unionize.

In High School you get taught that unionization is a good thing, no questions asked.  Not only is that not true, but this decision will have serious repercussions and tons of unexpected consequences.  Before you get into the podcast, think about this:  How will the colleges pay the football players AND the women’s gymnastics team?  Title 9 demands gender equality, and you can’t discriminate the dollar amount either. 

What school can afford this?  This causes serious issues for the future of NCAA athletics.  This is, in my opinion, a bad thing.  I like college sports.  It could also signal the end of the NCAA, an organization that already has a HUGE legal problem on its hands.  This is, in my opinion, a good thing.
