xaxat August 9, 2014 Share August 9, 2014 Ed O'Bannon wins his case and boom goes the dynamite. Judge Rules N.C.A.A. Players Must Be Paid for Their Images In a decision that could drastically reshape the world of college sports, a federal judge ruled Friday that the N.C.A.A.’s decades-old rules barring payments to college athletes were in violation of antitrust laws. In a 99-page ruling, Judge Claudia Wilken of United States District Court delivered a resounding rebuke to the foundation of the N.C.A.A., issuing an injunction against current rules that prohibit athletes from earning money from the use of their names and images in video games and television broadcasts. It will be almost certainly be appealed, but it's not looking good for the NCAA. Link to comment
