I get all the flap over this and try to see both sides. What gets me is players having to deal with all the distractions and junk blown out of proportion, ie JohnnyFBCashSignMe/PayMe etc. There is no easy answer on the pay/play/generate money for the schools issue. But if that occurs, amateur collegiate football will be dead. Our info-fetish in today's world dictates all the publicity of the negativism for someone like Manziel. That in turn fuels the varied responses such as this kneejerk reaction at the University of Tennessee. That is sad and ruins it for many but likely will be more the rule than exception in days ahead. I am glad to be named among the unautograph crowd who just like to see the guys play football.
