According to On3sports, college football players would make $500 from the NCAA video game, which the college football players association thinks is too low...
quote:

“All current players should boycott this deal. It is an opt-in deal, and they should not opt into it. It is just a ridiculously low amount of money,” Justin Falcinelli, vice president of college football association told On3 sports.

Makes sense. 120 teams. 100 players per team. That's 12,000 players. Multiply by 500 that's $6 million. The video game sells 2 to 3 million copies a year. So that's $2 to $3 of every game going to NIL. The game only costs $70. The profit maybe $20. So players getting 10 to 20% of their profits.

I'm sure most of these players aren't too good in math.

Careful now. You’re making too much sense. That’s frowned upon in todays world.

A flat rate may be equal, but is it fair? Should there be a different payout for starters? Or for teams in the preseason top 25? Or blueblood programs that generate the most interest?

Sure, there are 129 teams, but how many people buy the game to be Alcorn State?

There are so many ways to skin a cat.

This is funny stuff...in the world that has seen science become make believe & make believe is now science, why use players at all?

I mean how much do they expect to make off a freaking video game? $10k ?This is getting beyond ridiculous. When I was in high school I would’ve been stoked just to be in the game let alone being compensated for it.

College sports have been ruined for a decade. It’s just now being done in the light. Money(greed) eventually ruins all things. You can blame billion dollar TV contracts and the amount of money these players bring into the university compared to 20 years ago. I believe it should be regulated but these young men deserve money. How much is the tough question. I’m just frustrated the NCAA isn’t paying anyone, it’s the boosters/schools.

"believe it should be regulated but these young men deserve money. How much is the tough question."

Sounds like it was easy to maintain and regulated when it was free education, food and board. But if course the weak minded got the feels when hearing stories about players unable to go to the movies or go out to eat, as if other non-athletic students were dealing with the same situations.

College sports have been ruined, so either find a way to make it a legit seni-pro org or go back to what worked. Frick these kids for whining as they live high on the hog on campus.

I actually hope someway, somehow the players get totally fricked if they decide to get too greedy

Agree. make the players all 00 and allow the user to modify. That's what most people did in 2014 anyway. Other than the numbers it wasn't really that accurate.

I think the problem is it's so easy to mod that they would be vulnerable to the same legal issues.

The legal argument they made against that is everyone knows who the starting QB rated at 92 is for School A and simply giving him a 00 jersey number does not mean they are still not using his likeness. Sure you would get some guys that nobody could really identify but the big name guys were pretty obvious.

Too low. Pandora's box is now open. Professional college athletes want more. Sad to see college football slowly get ruined.

nbd, just go back to "generic" players on the rosters and the players won't have to worry about being offended by the compensation.

And someone on tRant can create the names for all the players and share it out. I love it.
