Charles Barkley not a fan of NIL (Reno Gazette)

Barkley is not a fan of the NIL (name, image, likeness) deals college athletes can sign to make money while playing sports.

He also dislikes the transfer portal, which allows college athletes to change schools every year.

“I hate NIL because, No. 1, I think it’s going to have tremendous resentment among teammates. They’re going to be comparing who makes the most,” he said. “The transfer portal is going to be, they’re going to be cherry picking guys every single year now, like, how much are they paying you at this school? We need to give you more to come here.”

He said the NCAA is at fault for overly enforcing minor rules infractions in past years, such as coaches taking payers out to eat.

“The NCAA has nobody to blame but themselves because they’ve been boneheads forever. Suspending guys for getting a free meal, suspending guys for getting an extra pair of sneakers and stupid stuff like that. And now you’ve got the toothpaste out of the tube where every kid is going to the highest bidder,” he said. “These little schools, they got no chance going forward. They’ve got zero chance, because they’re not going to be able to pay what these big schools are going to pay.”

He also dislikes politicians and said they should be more concerned about gun and abortion laws than the NIL.

In Texas, legislators are discussing whether high school athletes should be allowed to also get NIL deals, like college athletes.

“Instead of passing sensible gun resolutions, they’re out here worrying about the NIL. Are you kidding me? They’re out here talking about abortion in 2022. They won’t pass not one single (law) making it hard to get an assault weapon, but they’re worried about the NIL? And they want to talk about abortion in 2022? That’s only because we’re just fools, the public,” he said.

“They know they’ve just got to say a couple of words to get your vote. They throw the word ‘conservative,’ ‘liberal,’ they throw it around. Those words should be outlawed, liberal, conservative. What are you actually going to do? We’ve got to realize these politicians, both parties, both parties are full of s***.”

    I think he's right about the NCAA having themselves to blame, but for the wrong reason. I don't know who he's talking about getting busted for shoes and meals, as my impression of the pre-NIL NCAA was that (self-reporting-for-a-wrist-slap aside) the NCAA wanted to part of doing anything about--or even knowing about--violations. The going rate for a 5-star QB in SEC country was mid-six figures cold hard cash, and the parking lot at Alabama's practice facility looked like an exotic car lot (the "pictures of Alabama football players' rides" Reddit thread was quite entertaining).

    It wasn't an overly-aggressive NCAA that pushed players and their families into demanding NIL rights, it was a limp-dick NCAA that let anything go, which gave a small handful of schools a massive advantage and left every other player in the country asking, "What the fuck!?" All of this while announcements of insane TV money roll in, and the players get no part of it.

    Some kind of pay-for-play deal needed to happen sooner so that the NCAA wasn't completely unprepared for it. They should have grown some balls when the TV money got big and challenged Title IX for some kind of revenue sharing agreement. Instead of creating a set of player-forward (in terms of cash in pockets) rules designed to somewhat level the playing field (and actually enforcing them), the NCAA went from having a ridiculously strict and complicated rules structure that was completely ignored and unenforced to having essentially zero rules overnight. For all intents and purposes, the NCAA is now dead. Might officially be so soon, at least when it comes to revenue sports. What's been left behind is a total shitshow that's somehow even worse than when they were "in charge."

    Sounds like Chuck's politics suck, but his NIL take is good.

    Chuck has a good and supportable take on the only two political issues in his quote.

    If you disagree with chuck on this take of his, regarding abortion and reasonable gun control, YOU are the current problem with America.

    Its not even open for debate.

    That you actually wrote that indicates YOU are the current problem with America.

    Chuck is entertaining, but not the best prognosticator.
