Don't like it.

Then again, I don't like pros (whatever form they may take) in the Olympics, either...

California Governor Signs Bill Allowing College Athletes to Endorse Products

California just turned college sports upside down.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a bill that will allow college athletes to use their name, image and likeness to endorse products. That runs directly opposite long-standing rules from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and could lead to a defining court battle.

The bill, which passed the California legislature unanimously, would go into effect in 2023. It stops the NCAA from barring a university from competition if athletes receive endorsements, ranging from major companies to paid youth coaching positions. Student athletes would also be allowed to hire agents.
Just a meat eating, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, Harley riding deplorable troglodyte peoplekind, back from a better place...
