    Banning the NFL from campuses is not going to keep the agents away. They still are going to know who the big players are and that they need to sign them.

    Getting rid of the NFL will get rid of agents, but no one wants that.


    You're right you can't avoid players from coming in contact with the agents, but you gotta make sure they know not to take these gifts from them.

      Saban: Agents no better than pimps

      Told you he felt very strongly about agents contacting players.

      http://content.usatoday.com/communit...agents-pimps/1

      You could tell from the speech he made at SEC Media Day in Birmingham that he is pissed.

      He wants some kind of punitive action taken against these agents, their runners/intermediaries & the NFL.

      ESPN reported that the NFLPA is taking "an aggressive approach" to punishing the agents who contact players under scholarship, citing the huge guaranteed $ going to top draft picks & "pure greed" motivating them to get in 1st with a player who is projected to go top 10.

      Even more appalling are the means they use, like the "runners," or agent go-betweens who have ties to high profile college programs, some of them are boosters & others, some shockingly pastors & parents. I should surprise no one that maybe some bribe $ going to grad assts. for players secret cell nos. is happening too. And the use of prepaid cell accts, offshore & anonymous accts, etc. smacks of criminal activity.

      And criminal was the operative word used by the NFLPA Executive Director when he commented on this on ESPN radio yesterday. With the NFLPA, NCAA & the college coaches all calling for new regulations I think it's going to be forthcoming before the season starts.

        Is it paranoid if you are actually being followed?

        It will get the NFLPA and NFL Owners to do something about the agent problem though.

            serious note. From what I've experienced, it is schools from your conference/area that tip off the NCAA, anonymously. Most of the time, but sometimes coaches find out who it was. Totally sucked because the NCAA is WAY more lenient when it comes to some things compared to others.

                Wow, an SEC fan saying rules shouldn't be followed. I've never seen this before.

                    I love this. The NCAA has been awesome in the past 6 months. It's about time they started investigating and calling out schools, even for dumb ****.

                    And yes if Iowa was investigated and doing something wrong, I'd be pissed but at the team not the NCAA.

                      Did you even read what I said? I didn't say the rule shouldn't be followed, I said it shouldn't be a rule. If you want to try and take a shot at something, at least learn some reading comprehension.

                      You're partially right though, if they start taking the good players off of the SEC teams, you know, the guys that agents actually give stuff too, the joke conferences like the big 10 might actually mean something in the grand scheme of things.

                      I know you just wanted to take a dig at the SEC, but my favorite college team isn't even in the SEC, but it's still funny to me how much the other conferences suck in comparison, and how much it pisses people off.

                        I did. It's an SEC fan bitching about rules and whether they should or should not exist. Yes, it should be a rule. If you want gifts and cash, become good enough to play pro ball. Otherwise, you're an amateur and should be treated as one.

                              It's actually "learns to spell". Aren't you the one who's in the journalism field?

                              S-T's point still lacks merit. There's a reason collegiate athletes are considered "amateurs". They don't deserve cash or gifts. You should have to wait until you're a pro.

                                Ooooh, burn.

                                I never challenged that, and I disagree with S-T's point too. Only made a joke about how you never pass on an opportunity to make a sarcastic remark about the SEC.


                                Oh, by the way, I fixed your quotes for you. Punctuation always goes inside the quotation marks, smart ass (save for a few instances, which I'm sure you know all about). In the future, it'd be convenient for you to make sure your own writing is absolutely accurate before you call out someone for theirs. May I ask what your major is?
