Joe Nocera on the NCAA's misdeeds

Nocera continues to document the seemingly-inexhaustible list of atrocities committed by the NCAA against its student employees.

Roughly on-topic, I made my own chart comparing how Mr. Violin and Mr. Basketball are treated by their respective colleges. Harvard showed great cowardice in the story Nocera discusses...Presumably they would have also prevented Natalie Portman from acting in a school production while she was a student there because she was already a professional actress?

Mr. Violin Mr. Basketball
Can retain an agent Yes No
Can play professionally and in college Yes No
Owns revenues from sales of his work and likeness Yes No
Can transfer schools and immediately participate in college competitions Yes No
Can play professionally prior to completing first year of college Yes No
Can play professionally at any age Yes No
