Michael Bennett says the NCAA is like slavery; Players should be paid

Michael Bennett of the Seahawks wants more money

Michael Bennett calls out the NCAA

Michael Bennett is one of the most vocal players in the NFL.  He is not afraid to hold back, and the former Texas A&M grad and his brother Martellus were talking in an E60 interview, when Michael said this about NCAA football.

“Hell yeah college players should get paid,” Bennett said. “NCAA gets paid. Rose Bowl gets paid. Everybody gets paid except the people making the product. In some countries, they call that slavery.”

Bennett believes the NCAA players should get paid, and I agree with him. They are making a ton of money.  I don’t know about slavery, but it is pretty sad.
