I often wonder how someone like Chelsea Thomas, who was a pretty big local celebrity and a big name in a sport that parents pay a lot of money for their kids to play at a competitive level.

Millions of dollars in endorsements? Definitely not. But I bet a top softball player could easily get a couple nice local endorsements, some camp work over the summer, and maybe, if they're really good, a softball equipment endorsement deal. They won't get rich, but it would at least cover the full cost of college, which most of them don't get in that sport.

          Aren't you a big free-market guy? Stopping student-athletes - tgr MU - 9/11 15:58:25
               free market means letting the NCAA make its own decisions - SuperTone MU - 9/12 06:50:01
               I see the final result as ending up even more sleazy - GA Tiger MU - 9/11 19:59:31
