The NCAA recently announced that they will giving unlimited food to their athletes, which begs this question. Why was this not already a policy? The fact that they are only conceding it now just shows how messed up of a system that the NCAA is, and it makes me angry just to think about this. Shabazz Napier's revelation that he was playing hungry during the Final Four is a symptom of a much bigger problem, and these athletes need more than food.
We all know that the problem is a lot bigger than just free food and I honestly think that the NCAA believes that they can just pull the wool over the public's eyes with this. And maybe they can, but that will not stop my raging keyboard.
This move reeks of politics, and I just cannot sit by and watch a bunch of ESPN analysts getting paid crazy money to talk about how this should be enough for the "student-athletes" of the NCAA. Just an absolute joke. You also have to wonder if this was just a knee-jerk reaction to Napier speaking out recently.
They may be trying to take attention away from the Northwestern lawsuit, but I will not do that. In fact, I want to make it a point to continue drawing light to this issue, because I believe it to be a quite important one.
Why stop at food? How about unlimited concubine service as well? Granted that one might be a little tougher to make work legally. I'm just kidding about that idea obviously, but I do think that the athletes should strike while the iron is hot and try to get as much as they can.
If you could not already tell, then now you know that this topic makes me a little bit angry. Maybe even hangry since I skipped a meal today. Here is hoping that the Northwestern players really stick it to the NCAA, and if they need any help from me then my twitter is @AllDave_AllDay. Keep up the good fight.
