It's always nice when someone doing a sports podcast reveals that they know absolutely nothing about the economics of college sports. All they really seem to know is that they want the players to be paid and that college football drives the train. And their simplistic framing of those issues is the foundation upon which they base all of their other assertions. But unless you acknowledge there are nuances to these issues then everything that springs forth afterward just ends up further and further from reality.

It's hilarious how it is so obvious that Bill knows his beloved NBA is a shitshow so he tries to cut down all the other sports – in this case college football or NFL football - in order to try to make it seem as though the NBA is the only one making any sense and everyone else is just rushing headlong into disaster.
