    They're asking for decent medical care and for the ability tp fully pay for their educations.

      to be honest.

      They're entertainers playing in multi-million dollar facilities in front of tens of thousands of spectators. Everybody's making money but them, and the only people who still buy that precious "student-athlete" fiction are the people who are making beaucoup bucks off of it. They're already unpaid professionals.

      I think the NFL should suck it up and establish a real minor league system. Divorce athletics from academics; it doesn't do either one a favor.
