Will NCAA win in antitrust lawsuit?
The NCAA and the current and former college athletes suing the governing body are still awaiting a crucial judge's decision in the long-simmering antitrust lawsuit. In the meantime, two developments in the case hint at both sides' strategies in a legal battle that could result in dramatic changes in the economics of big-time college sports.
On the players' side, six current college football players have joined the lawsuit, which claims players should be compensated for universities using their likenesses in video games and other products. Meanwhile, the NCAA is ending its deal with video game maker Electronic Arts Inc., the makers of "NCAA Football 2014." Some observers see this as a sign that the body wants to limit how much it will have to pay current and future athletes if a federal judge grants the lawsuit class-action status.
