    What an unnecessary way to handicap ourselves. They should probably get to work on dropping the "no boosters are allowed to compensate or arrange compensation" part of the policy, quickly. If that stays, we're going to get railroaded even more on the trail by rival schools.

    So if a major booster owns an organization and wants to pay the athlete for their likeliness with their organization they cant just because they are a booster. That is so weird.

    This is some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever seen. Boosters are the main source of underground income. This just keeps it underground.

    I hope so because at first glance it looks like we are hamstringing ourselves.

    Don’t get all bent out of shape on the booster thing, won’t be hard to figure out ways to funnel their money through 3rd parties. It’s really impossible to police.

    LSU, Bama, Georgia are laughing at us. Business as usual, Florida acting like California schools, holier than thou. These fore mentioned schools are holding classes for all boosters looking for ways around the new rules. sounds like Jeremy is still calling the shots, ugggh.

    In poker, you don’t show the opponents your hand. We could have waited till the SEC advised us of Alabama’s policy on this matter which they will rubber stamp. LOL

    What is fair market value? Subjective and arbitrary. Who determines, a MAI appraiser? Also, this is blatant discrimination against boosters.

    As I have said before, this is the beginning of the end of college sports as we have known it.

    Miami and FSU players have done so as well. While our players came out with tshirts, I note that the UM and FSU QBs came out with digital licensing opportunities for their image and likeness. Gronk made $$$ doing this.

    Just stop the denial and be a Bama, LSU or Dawg fan. Stop with the self torment. You have about as much in common with the athletes no matter the name on the uniform and I suspect you will be much happier in the long run - allnof thw wins and 5- star recruits. Wow.
