There has been growing discontent with Rich Paul for months over him helping his players bully organizations and use the media to manipulate in to getting whatever they want. The NCAAs approval rating has also been steadily decreasing as the public outrage over their exploitation of their athletes continues to rise. Rich Paul and NCAA hatched a scheme that would increase both of their approval ratings. By publishing this op-ed and advocating for the rule to be eliminated, Rich Paul comes off as compassionate to agents and players. And by agreeing to abolish the rule, the NCAA now comes off as reasonable and more sensitive to public opinion. The plan to implement this rule, the op-ed, the help of Shams Charania. This whole thing was a Sham.
NCAA actually comes off as more incompetent and even dumber than before... Does negative credibility exist? It simply must in this case...
The NCAA looks horrible in all of this.
Does the NCAA removing the rule really help their reputation though? Cant say it does. ​ Edit: Also just learned they didnt even remove the rule, just added a waiver for those in good standing with NBPA.
the NCAA doesnt have an approval rating, thats a political/presidential thing the general consensus has never been "poor kids getting exploited", the people who care are fans of the NCAA and WANT their favorite school to milk players for every ounce of t
The headline is: NCAA agrees to lift rule that figures like Lebron and analysts have said is unreasonable. Thats going to help their reputation.
