Earth mover

Beneath the feet of the conspiracy in restraint of trade that is the NCAA;
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken issued an injunction that prohibits the NCAA from enforcing rules that bar member schools and conferences from offering the football players and men's basketball players in the most prominent programs "a limited share of the revenues generated from the use of their names, images, and likenesses."
Judge Wilken stopped well short of giving schools free rein to cut big paychecks to players.
Baby steps, but the usual suspects round themselves up for more self-justification;
NCAA Chief Legal Officer Donald Remy noted the limits and said in a statement the NCAA is further reviewing the decision.
The organization argued during a three-week trial this summer in Oakland, Calif., that opening the door for pay to college players would ruin college sports.
For whom?
