  1. He's smart cus this is gonna attract a lot of athletes to california schools if other states don't catch on

  2. California Governor did the right thing.

  3. Anybody who is against this is jealous. They should really be getting paid based on how much revenue they bring in.

  4. Wow, something good this Cali. Governor is doing right while doing other things wrong

  5. cant happen fast enough. President Yang wants to make it happen.

  6. Where was all the merchandise profits going to before is what we want to know

  7. Finally!!! They should have at least been getting a stipend all these years.

  8. Libertarians want all members of society to have abundant opportunities to achieve economic success. A free and competitive market allocates resources in the most efficient manner. Each person has the right to offer goods and services to others on the free market. The only proper role of government in the economic realm is to protect property rights, adjudicate disputes, and provide a legal framework in which voluntary trade is protected. All efforts by government to redistribute wealth, or to control or manage trade, are improper in a free society.

  9. Get it done across the nation. Getting an education in this country is a struggle for every college student and we need to do more. This is a great thing for the athletes 🙂

  10. Not being American, I had no idea that College kids went unpaid for sponsorship. So, the kids wear the mandated Nike or Adidas sportswear and the NCAA pockets all the money? That's slave labour.

  11. I agree with paying college athletes. That being said I think California is just doing this for tax revenue.

  12. Then they won't be eligible to play in any sanctioned NCAA games…
    Guess they could keep everything instate? 😂

  13. the NCAA has been profiting for the longest time. And screwing young tallent over for an education is just evil

  14. Maybe they can pay for their own tuition & books now too like the other students have to

  15. Wow about time this kids should be paid. These coaches, teachers & companies etc

  16. WILL THIS ALLOW EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW FOR HISPANIC AMERICANS TO BE CHOSEN TOO ?
    OUR HISPANIC YOUTH HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED FOR QUIET SOMETIME !
    SOME HIGH SCHOOLERS OF HISPANIC NATIONALITY HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED BY SCOUTS AND
    SOME ARE BETTER THAN AFRICAN AMERICAN PLAYERS !
    SO WILL THEY GET A SHOT AT THESE AT ENDORSEMENTS ?

  17. California always leading the way … love my state !

  18. VOTE OUT EVERY DEMONRAT SOCIALIST CRIME FAMILIES IN 2020 !

  19. YANG 2020. California just got this from yangs policy page. 🤣

  20. California schools are going to get all the top recruits now. All the other states are going to follow suit. Great look for the kids that are underprivileged.

  21. Finally! Seriously, the NCAA has been profiting on these kids for decades and these kids are not given an opportunity to earn the billions they make for this organization. Equates to basically slavery. Good for California! I may start watching my hometown teams complete.

  22. That’s definitely a great way to motivate the kids to go to school so they can go to college .. Give them a real future because the majority are really good but don’t make pro.

  23. They can not. If they accept money they will lose eligibility. And their school will suffer.

  24. Looking forward to seeing the push back on this one LOL
    Let's be honest the old system was nothing but a modern-day sharecropping model..
    Where Talent and labor was not compensated fairly…
    Glad to see California take this issue forward.. we have to give some homage to Jalen Rose and the Fab Five and their parenting you are about to you heard about the new ruling right

  25. This is gonna kill recruiting. Small schools will loose they sports its beneficial but domino effect.

  26. This is a great opportunity for HBU schools historically black universities to jump on the bandwagon to try to get some top recruits and change the architecture of how student-athletes are treated and set the narrative and expectations.. of the 21st Century College athlete

  27. Good now they can pay for their free ride to college.

  28. Looks like.. PAC 10 and other Western Conference.. basketball and football programs.. how about to have a huge recruiting class the next 3 to 4 years
    .. the Alabama's. Auburn's, University of Georgia, Florida schools are in trouble

  29. One thing you should not get paid for is your audograph. Commercials in print, on line and tv yes! Give all athelets a FULL RIDE scholarships with room and board, medical & dental care with free meals 24/7!! Universities & colleges make BILLIONS off these atheletic students they sure the hell can afford to pay for everything for these people!

  30. They should be able to sue for back pay.

  31. Great news tell you right now! Those football programs in the ACC and the Southern Conference are going to fight tooth and nail 😲

  32. This should have been done years ago. It isn't fair that these kids do all the work and get none of the benefits

  33. It's about time!!!!! Making billions off the back of mostly low income minorites!!!

  34. This is awesome! Now, all the college athletes that want to get paid should head to California.

  35. Should be law across the country.

  36. Those athletes are gonna make some good money now lol
