Just plain crazy
21 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Lame.

This movie pretends that athletes receive no compensation other that a free education, completely ignoring the value of publicity, the best fitness equipment, psychologists, tutors, trainers, coaches, elite contacts, promotional campaigns, education, medical care, and other special privileges has on these athlete's future earnings potential.

That's payment, and it equals $100,000 plus per year, maybe millions for top athletes.

At my D1 school, athletes aren't even required to type their own papers. The tutors are essential prostitutes. They don't attend class, but their names show up on the attendance sheets. They're treated like celebrities.

This is the dumbest movie I've EVER seen.
