Not about getting paid.
For the first time in the history of college sports, athletes are looking to be represented by a labor union.
Northwestern University football players led by former star quarterback and receiver Kain Colter, believe that players need to have someone looking out for their best interests but it is not about getting paid.
“A lot of people will think this is all about money; it’s not,” Colter said. “We’re asking for a seat at the table to get our voice heard.”
"This is about finally giving college athletes a seat at the table," Ramogi Huma, president of the National College Players Association and a former UCLA linebacker said.
What players are really looking for are medical bills to be paid and scholarship protection.
