These weren't ordinary circumstances by any means. He was within his rights to do what he did. Granted he did so knowing there was a risk it would be overturned. I wouldn't knock the NCAA if they took the same approach across all sports. They're cleary setting a double standard with college atheletes. They refuse to differentiate between sports. They allow minor league baseball players to cash in checks, and then a person like Bloom whose income is dependent upon sponsors in a sport such as skiing is excluded from playing. I don't think anyone is under the impression that the NCAA is a flawless entity, but with moves such as this it certainly makes it look like a dated organization that has outlived its usefulness. It doesn't appear to have adapted at all to the modern state of sports, and it must be corrected if collegiate atheletics is to resemble the ideal and 'pure state' that we all cherrish. Even though the ideal and 'pure state' seems to be based more in fantasy than reality.
