    NCAA will ban all California schools from championships if the bill passes so other states need to pass this as well. Love that there gonna get paid but other states need to catch up so we can get these guys paid.

      NCAA is modern day slavery. Heck if I was greedy I would find a way to use this as a business model to pay my employees $0.

                So basically colleges still won’t pay players. The bill only allows them to make money elsewhere. I guess it’s a start I guess

                    If this bill passes, every California school is going to be *STACKED* with the best athletes around the country.

                      I wish black athletes would take a knee and not play for these dam college games until change happens and yes I said black athletes because we make up 75% of the field. We are the majority and can force change.

                        If it is allowed, then should be a cap of a couple thousand a month.. They should have to keep a good gpa and not just be pushed through because they play sports.

                        If there is no cap on how much they are allowed to be compensated. Then it is time to be an adult and pay your own way.

                        Because if you honestly think school will not be paying them something
                        Then you are an idiot, because schools already do under the table so to speak..

                          If they let the students earn money from there own likeness, there should be at least restrictions on how it is earned. Example. If I owned a huge sports clothing company. I say oh hey Mr. 5 star. I will pay you tons of money for advertising on your tube videos if you go to Alabama to play, but only if you go to Alabama. Hmm.... You see were I am going with this, or Mr. 5 Star I will pay you tons of money to show up and take pictures with my clothing on if you go to Kentucky to play basketball. I mean there has to be some sort of restrictions on how the money is made.

                              Christian Hernandez well I just think players wouldn’t care about the game as much I don’t think colleges would want to be in the NCAA anymore because trying to get all college to pay their players the money, they cloth them they feed them, and they give them a scholarship I’m not saying there shouldn’t be anything done because I do think the system needs to be improved but I don’t think playing players a good thing to do I can see it ruining college sports also you would have to pay other sport programs as well

                                  This video is not about colleges paying athletes, it's about the athletes making money off their own likeness. It literally will cost the schools nothing except their ability to control the athletes. Since only 1% of athletes go pro, it makes sense that the athletes should earn money while they are popular and in school. No need to rush to the pros, you can get paid for a part time job like all other college kids and get your degree. All of a sudden college will be the place to be and stay!

                                    Please pass this!! Take back power for these men & women.

                                      A lot of commenters here are really mistaken about the effect of this legislation. IT'S NOT THE SCHOOL PAYING THE PLAYERS. The law says that ANY athlete at any California school can license their Name, Image or Likeness for pay without penalty from any California school, on caveat is that they cannot conflict with an existing contract that the school may have. So a football player can sell his autograph or memorabilia, or even advertise their services as a coach or trainer. So while the big money sports athletes may get big money contracts, others like the softball pitcher can get paid to be a softball coach, or the tennis player can teach tennis, the champion swimmer can get an endorsement deal and not lose their scholarship. Which is really a no-brainer when you realize any other scholarship student can do the same without suffering any penalty. The music scholarship student can cut a record and get paid for it and still have a scholarship, the drama student can get paid to do a film, and not suffer any penalty. Why should students who play sports be treated differently?

                                              It is a step in the right direction. Other states will undoubtedly follow to keep their schools competitive prior to 2023. It's still leaves an unfairness to "unskilled" positions or less popular athletes/sports. No doubt a Reggie Bush would have got a deal for a car dealership and made money. But what about Deuce Lutui or any of the other linemen?

                                                            Do people realize that the schools themselves aren’t paying the players but the bill allows players to make money off their likeness

Okey dokey. 👊✌🏼
