  •  so I'm supposed to not watch college football (5+ / 0-)

    until the players are paid? Even though the only way they get paid is because of the revenue generated by...people watching college football?

    Of course, while I don't have strong feelings one way or the other, it's a pretty fair argument that when you get free tuition, free room and board (and the food they get is amazing), a stipend, and some other fringe benefits (including pretty extensive tutoring opportunities) as well as employment avenues after school that they in fact do get compensated fairly well.

    The analogy fails pretty badly IMO
