Lawyers for former college football and men's basketball players have told a federal court they plan to seek payments for current and former college football and men's basketball players for use of their names and likenesses on television, video games and other products. The lawyers, seeking class action status for an existing lawsuit against the NCAA, said payments to current athletes could be held in trust until their college careers end. Sources told ESPN such payments could be hundreds of thousands of dollars each for men's basketball players and less for football players. Do college athletes in revenue sports deserve to be paid for use of their names and likenesses? Or should the NCAA be allowed to retain the status quo?
