Author Terry Bates: Collegiate Sports equals Slavery

Author Terry Bates, International Football Coach recently published a book entitled “NCAA SLAVE:ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION OF COLLEGE ATHLETES”. It was published by Dr. Lliala Afrika; this publication was written to enlighten high school athletes about the business side of college athletics and empower them to unionize.

This book was compiled for high school and college athletes, anyone interested in learning the business of collegiate sports, as well as their parents or guardian. NCAA Slave gives a concise description of the business side to college sports. Important court cases and documents are analyzed to give accurate details regarding compensation, labor laws, and the choice for the athlete to choose their course major.

This book should be studied before signing any national letter of intent or athletic scholarship. This could be the difference between paying for ones tuition, room, and board versus having all expenses paid from the college for room and board, jersey sales, ticket sales, and distribution of their name and likeness. The athlete needs to know this is a business and they are not amateurs as many coaches will lead them to believe.
