'Giant step backwards': Florida lawmakers eye NIL implementation delay


Recommended Posts

Once a leader in the NIL movement, the state of Florida might be surrendering its spot at the movement's forefront. 

In a stunning change, Florida lawmakers quietly passed legislation to delay its implementation until 2022. 

UF's Dan Mullen called on DeSantis to veto the move, which is buried into an unrelated bill, saying, "We need to do what’s best for our student-athletes." 

Mike Norvell at FSU noted there is "no reason to wait to do the right thing" while Miami's Manny Diaz slammed the move as "unacceptable" and called on DeSantis to veto the decision.

"While the rest of the states are moving forward to follow OUR lead, we inexcusably take a giant step backwards," Diaz commented. 

Senator Travis Hutson told Sports Illustrated today he introduced the amendment at the behest of the legislature's education staff which claimed the NCAA would potentially penalize the state's student-athletes. SI noted the NCAA has verbally pledged to not penalize any student-athletes for the decisions of their state politicians.

Yes, especially the way they went about it. I mean we weren't just one of however many states doing it, we were the leader. 

While I respect your intelligence and interest in the sport of football, I think you still have a lot to learn about politics as practiced here in the USA in the 21st century. 

I was not the least bit surprised. But they could have at least found a more transparent way to do it. And for the record, I am a supporter of student athletes being able to profit from their college football exploits. College football is very big business, and the workers (players) should be provided more than just a so called free education. The vast majority never go on to an NFL or even Canadian League career and many are not even able to attain a degree.

Not to get off-topic, and definitely not to turn this into a political discussion, but isn't this exactly what the NCAA is doing to states that pass legislation that runs counter to their policies (i.e., transgender participation, etc.)?

I believe so, from what I have read in the media.

Very excited to see the legislature reverse course -- granted, some of them blamed it on a "glitch". 

NIL date for Florida will be July 1, 2021 after all. 

Key notes from SI: 

- NCAA verbally pledged this morning they will not penalize any FL athletes regarding NIL 

- FL legislature passed legislation today that says if the NCAA penalizes FL institutions or players over state laws that FL schools will not be allowed to use state funds to pay for NCAA membership. Punishment includes relocation of championship events. The FL institutions may also be asked by the State to withdraw from the NCAA.

Careful sportsnut

 

A certain "homer wishful official" may start complaining to Joshua about a political post if it doesn't support his views LMAO

The message by this poster is wrong as usual Sportsnut. Unlike some other posters to this message board, I look forward to what you have to add. Especially the thread about the Florida High School Football Players drafted into the NFL.  That was great work, and compliments to you for it.

What happened to not responding to my posts? But let me guess you think you can tell me where the hell I can post but you can do whatever you want? Who the hell do you think you are? 

 

I will be back to responding to every single one of your posts because no matter how much you try and whine to Joshua to get me removed because you can't fight your own battles you can't tell me who the hell or where the hell i can post

Brian Allen and the coaching staff at Lake City Columbia have a great program. They certainly don't need any useless dead weight clinging to them and trying to anchor them down to the bottom. The Tigers are in good shape for years to come.

@Jambun82 @SportsNut25was just putting the thread together for me, which is 1,000% appreciated. All those graphics and tweets being put together was done by yours truly here. Being a member of the FWAA allows me to get access deep into the College Press Box Portals to do this and put together graphics like this and graphics that are properly formatted for the three social platforms all through one single template that I have. No easy task. At one point I was backed up getting graphics out at the end of the 4th round because we had back-to-back-to-back picks. It can be stressful especially if you make one little mistake. But I have fun tracking and doing this each year and have done it each year basically since I launched the website in 2010. Eventually I will go back and research the history of past drafts to put together a more comprehensive list of where these guys came from that have played in the NFL from Florida or at least have been drafted.

    • Plantation hasn’t been the same in a few years now. And Dillard haven’t been in the same district as STA since 08.    amd STA hasn’t faced a strong talented well coached Dillard team this decade. Now don’t get me wrong STA may still win this October matchup but Dillard is nowhere near the same Dillard of old.    and the last time we faced plantation we demolished them, so all I’m saying is it’s gonna be a great matchup I never predicted a winner. 
    • I said I would be surprised because Broward publics haven't had a strong track record against STA as of late    When's the last time a Broward public not named DFB beat them? Dillard isn't a bad team but this isn't the same Dillard of the 80s-early 00s   Just look at what STA did to plantation in both matchups 2 seasons ago, and plantation is no push over and you should know this considering plantation past history with Dillard   I think Dillard has taken a step in the right direction but I'm gonna need to see more to feel confident picking Dillard to beat STA, again if Dillard can beat them then I'll be the first one to come on here and eat crow though
    • Probably because the Dade publics usually get more transfers than STA but people overlook that detail    People look at privates as transfer loaded but many publics actually get more transfers than the privates that are called cheaters, I'm seeing that up here in North Florida and it been happening in SFL for years
    • And I can respect that, but in the same breath in your first comment you went str8 to “st Thomas isn’t gonna be easy etc etc” when nobody ever said they were.   u also said you don’t see us beating them, how can u say that not knowing wha Dillard has you went as far as to say you would be surprised if Dillard won” ignoring the face Dillard is on a 22 game winning streak and they could have very well won 6A last year, but we would never know because we was never given that opportunity but the opportunity we was delt we won the title. Now am I comparing any of those teams to st Thomas or any other team in 7A ijs.
