    LOL, yeah, if I ever finish my time machine I'll make sure not to go back and trade up for Watt. That would be a terrible idea.

    So, is your position education is a bad thing? An education provides no advantage? Is society just a hopeless downward spiral and an education will not help?

    Everyone straggles to find jobs but the job an educated man or woman is likely to get is generally better than the uneducated. The study results are all over the web and can also be found at the US Department of Labor web site.

    Here is what you guys are forgetting, although the NCAA make billions on student athletes in return Students get an education on a scholarship fully paid for. Whether some players have aspirations to go to the NFL it doesn't take away that they're given an opportunity to get a full ride in some of the top colleges in the country. They may make billions from the players but in return they give you them an education and a future beyond football or any sports.

    The NFL is the world's largest not-for-profit industry and that isn't going to change. They do a decent job of regulating themselves but to say that they are perfect or even good would be an overstatement. They seem to handle the current players and the ownership decisions pretty well but they have drastically dropped the ball on former players both health-wise and financially.

    The NFL isn't a monopoly, and if you think it is, you need to study the definition of a monopoly. The only thing people claim they're "monopolizing" is their own brand. They aren't preventing anyone from having a football league, or playing football, or anything involving it the sport itself. They sell exclusive rights deals (for their own brands) to whoever pays the most, which sucks for people that want options with the NFL, but it's not a monopoly.

    And? Maybe the morons should try to get a real degree rather than take cake courses to play football?
