A Viking player in the not named Chris Kluwe getting attention.

So, Sharrif Floyd ( Vikings DT, 1st round pick last year, consummate good guy) has decided to go ahead and spearhead a Lawsuit against the NCAA. He alluded to this a few days ago by saying he had a rather large announcement coming soon, most in Vikingland thought it had something to do with a scheme change possibly. But, much to the surprise of everyone, we couldn't be more wrong, here is the Official tweet he posted "Student athletes need to be respected more. It's hard for great coaches to do their job when their athletes are just looking for something as simple as an extra meal, a movie date with a friend and comfort that they are gonna be taken care of and not taken advantage of. Athletes shouldn't be suspended for raising money, to better his life or for looking at a mentor as a father. This has nothing to do with the Gator Nation. I love my college and will always be a Gator." he seems to be pretty mad at the NCAA. Now this is what I think this whole argument about paying college athletes is a bunch of bull shit, so take it with that in mind. These kids ( They are KIDS) are becoming MUCH too greedy, but I don't think its entirely there fault either. These lawyers that come to with these lawsuits, want the big pay out that would come from destroying the NCAA. These players in MY opinion are getting a FREE 4 yr education through the college they attend, so the max they should get out of these settleings is this, free room and free food, and a bus pass to go around town. That's it, that's A LOT of free stuff right there. They don't deserve it ( yet ), at the point they are in college they are still amateur athletes, not professionals so they shouldn't be paid that way until they put in the work and show they are a viable NFL player, then they can get paid. If they went to a union and became paid on a base salary, they could in reality go to a different college each YEAR, talk about the logistics of pulling that off and not only that they are going to be limited because if they do leave to a new college each year, HOW DO YOU SCOUT THEM??? they'll be in a new system each year ( this is totally hypothetical) Thats just me taking this in at first glance...leave your thoughts on this.
