This debate will continue raging whether or not Johnny wants to be the poster boy for this cause. I am in the camp that we need to pay these players and what they currently get in the form of a “free education” is not nearly enough. It’s not ok that everyone gets paid but the actual talent producing on the field.
I’ll take an autographed copy though.
