    BOOM!! WSU's Response to Players that Support PAC-12 Players Demands.

    Apparently PAC-12 athletes had demands they wanted met or they would sit out the 2020 season...


    Some of the demands were:

    50% conference revenue distributed among athletes

    6 year scholarships

    If player decides to go pro early, and doesn't get drafted, they can return and finish out scholarship with no penalty

    Free Medical Insurance (players choice of Medical Insurance)


    Here was WSU's response...

    We got any open scholarships? Might want to hit up that transfer portal. WSU probably not same caliber of talent as many other P5 schools, but probably worth looking at.

    Yeah, these PAC12 players may be putting themselves between a rock and a hard place. It doesn’t sound as though they are ready to join the “regular world” work force, so it would be wise to put some better critical thought into their demand list. One would hope and assume there are plenty other young men willing to gladly take their scholarships or roster spots for the opportunities it already provides.

    Calling any list of requests a "demand list" is a big mistake right out of the box for college players. The only people that can afford to have "demands" are people with genuine leverage. College football players don't have a lot of genuine leverage. Unlike pro football, those 100K football fans are coming to Aggie Stadium each week to watch their Texas A&M Aggies play, with or without Johnny Manzel. Same for LSU, Alabama, etc... And those fans will continue coming back long after Johnny Football has left the scene. Their ties are to the school, not the individual players. That's quite different from the NFL.
