NLRB rules that “Student Athletes” are now university employees – South Park’s Cartman explains consequences for big-time college sports

USAToday:

… “I don’t like to make predictions,” LeRoy said, “but I will say, given what I have seen, it’s only a matter of time before there is another (unionization effort involving) a Division I private school football or basketball program. That will likely result in a vote for union representation and then that school will be between a rock and a hard place because the NCAA rules will say you can’t treat these folks as employees.

“And the NLRB will say (to the school) ‘It doesn’t matter what the NCAA is saying, because you now have a union that you have to bargain with.’ … And I would predict for you, based on the California NIL experience, that the NCAA would capitulate to this and allow schools to form employment relationships.”

    I wonder what UO will do if any ” student athlete” is openly speaking against the vax. My guess is they will go berserk because they like obedient jocks not jocks who think for themselves or refuse Duck koolaid.

    Moss defender—-

    Are you saying that getting vaccinated is drinking a koolaid ala Jim Jones? If so, you are outta your mind. Or “drinking the koolaid” of anti-science nut jobs, who are happy to take advantage of science based medicine once you get nailed by COVID19.

    Troll elsewhere, please.

      That NIL acronym is almost too true to be good. And the way they use it in their press release headline without a second thought about what is coming out of their mouths.

    More importantly, will student athletes be counted as Employees or Students on the UO MAP Testing / COVID19 Cases Dashboard?
