You know, this one – the one that said that since the NCAA determined that players can keep the money paid to them if they either win or settle a copyright infringement, what’s to stop well-off boosters from intentionally infringing on a copyright of a star player, getting sued, and making some perfectly-within-the-rules payments to said star player? Well, the NCAA says it’ll treat intentional copyright violation as an NCAA violation – meaning, in essence, there’s no loophole.
Of course, even if the loophole had existed, we weren’t sure anyone would have tried it anyway, and Clay Travis, whose column yesterday was the impetus for all this talk in the first place, is skeptical of the NCAA’s ability to properly enforce what’s an intentional copyright violation and what isn’t (then again, since the loophole was his idea to begin with, of course he’d want it to still exist). The judge might be the real issue anyway. Either way: loophole or not, we hope some booster tries Travis’s tactic, just to make the NCAA look dumb. An organization could hardly deserve it more.
And we’re just leaving it here. Oof. [National Sports Journalism Center]
