There really isn’t much formal structure in the press release or anything but the biggest quote we were able to garner from the release was:
“the opportunity to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model”
Right away the internet started to talk about what might be “fans” biggest win in this whole matter and that is the release of NCAA football video game from EA Sports again! One of the most beloved video games of our era could be re- released so naturally everyone is talking about this! So honestly, I don’t have much to say about this whole story until there are more details but if this means we could be getting NCAA football again, then I’m all good by it!
BREAKING: NCAA will allow athletes to be compensated for their names, images and likenesses in a major shift for the organization.
