I respect your overall knowledge of this case. You know more than I do. Most of what I share is based on my personal experience with the civil court. Letter of the law is important, but the spirit of the law counts, too. From what I see in this, Kansas has a great position in a courtroom, especially a federal courtroom.
Don’t you think Kansas expected it would be used against them to accept Adidas as a booster? Were we so desperate to get a bench player back? You know the answer to that. We were strong-armed into that move. We are heroes for coming to the defense of our player who was “played” by the NCAA.
Take a break from reading bylaws, stand back and develop the narrative of this case. That will be a better representation of what Kansas will deliver in court.
Our world would be so much more dangerous if courts only used the letter of the law. Just think at all those wordy disclosures each of us sign off on to use a website or install a piece of software. If we only used letter of the law those lengthy “legal documents” would turn us all into serfs.
And the NCAA turning to use a third-party group of legal goons is not going fair well in court either. Just my opinion. I suspect any finding they come up with will warrant a monster financial penalty. Once again, we are victims and they have us in a position to strong-arm us, and they did! What is the real purpose of a third-party being involved? It’s setting up a kangaroo court stacked with goons! Not going to play well in a federal court. ’
Imagine you decided to use a piece of software you bought on an extra computer and were not allowed to do so in the legal blurb you “accepted” when first using that software company’s software. On line 3847, it says clearly in legal talk that you can’t do that and you have accepted them as becoming a private member of their organization. They catch what you did and they’ve setup a bogus group of thugs to decide your fate.
Do you realize how a decision in the NCAA’s favor here would most likely change everything in our society, for the negative? It would give a path for corporatism to smash us all like ants (further). If the NCAA wins in a lower court, it’s a clear case for appeal continually until reaching the Supreme Court (if necessary).
I think the NCAA will eventually smell the roses and will back down. Hopefully, sooner rather than later. This should be negotiated to somehow allow both sides to save face and move on.
@mayjay said in WE’RE BACK:
@wissox Congrats on the new job! There is certainly enough upheaval going on this year that having to find another job must have felt like piling on.
I am seriously doubting any games will be played this year!
Thanks! I’m still skeptical too of any games. Covid being reported among PGA players. LSU got a lot of football players quarantined now.
@kjayhawks said in Mahomes' massive contract.:
If he can stay healthy his net worth could mirror MJs. Once this contract is started, I read he will make over $10 a minute during it. With his adidas contract, his commercials for State Farm, Amazon, Head & Shoulders and Hunts that aren’t included in that contract it will be an insane amount of money he piles up. Honestly it makes me not want to watch, I don’t think people should make that kind of money lol.
Just think how much money the people paying that contract must be making in order to offer such a deal.
Interesting things I’ve been seeing on the Covid makes me wonder if they are figuring out how to treat it. Mcpherson which is the county over from where I live has seen huge jumps but not any hospitalization and people are recovering considerably faster. NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson rested positive but was cleared 3 days later with 2 negative tests. I’m not sure if they are prescribing something or what but people are getting over it faster so that’s a good sign.

This board is great.
Wish I knew most of you in real life. You seem like great people.
I hope we have a basketball season so that the fun discussions here can get back to normal.
that makes 2 of us lol. - -It has been so boring , Mainly basketball as you say - - we got robbed of a quite possible National Championship. I just for sure absorb even the most tiny Basketball recruiting info/football info - -I’m ready but it is going to for sure be a different type atmosphere season once it starts
