in the current state of Big Time College Sports.
So says Jeff Greenfield:
It is the premise of President Obama’s re-election: We have a choice to make between a candidate who favors the privileged, the comfortable, the powerful, and a candidate who wants a country where, as Obama has said repeatedly, “everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
As Obama sees it, the more affluent should pay higher taxes; big banks should stop playing fast and loose with exotic, risky bets; tycoons shouldn’t be allowed to put their thumbs on the scale of political campaigns with unlimited, untraceable money.
But there’s one arena, dominated by a privileged, insular few, where rampant hypocrisy and exploitation reign, where an obsession with conquest overrides the most basic standards of fairness, and where Obama has stood somewhere between indifferent and complicit. It’s the arena of big-time college sports. And therein lies a tale.
I suppose if the President had focused on fixing college sports he wouldn't have had time to turn ours into a nation of bankrupt socialists, sour with envy.
OTOH, Internet content kiddoes should click and take notes. That's top quality linkbait, from one of dinosaur media's longest serving mammals.
