College gridders already paid

After reading Donald H. Yee’s recent column in The Washington Post, ”Show Them the Money,” in which he supports paying college football players and laying out a 10-step plan, it is painfully obvious he is in dire need of a 12-step program of his own.

Yee, a lawyer and partner in an Los Angeles sports-management firm, rightfully indicates that there is a corrupt system in place mingling agents with collegiate coaches and so-called student athletes. However, instead of suggesting ways to clean up the system and end the culture of corruption that has infested not just college football, but other high-ticket college sports such as basketball, Yee calls for a further perversion of college athletics by turning over the football programs to outside institutions and corporations and paying the so-called student athletes.
