In summer of college athlete empowerment, what was gained?

first_img FOLLOW US LIVE TV COMMENT First Published: 1st September, 2020 07:20 IST Last Updated: 1st September, 2020 07:20 IST In Summer Of College Athlete Empowerment, What Was Gained? College athletes come and go, cycling through their programs and campuses in about four years. Organization has been difficult to attain. Motivating people to band together and fight for reforms when they might not be around to reap the benefits is challenging WATCH US LIVEcenter_img Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By College athletes come and go, cycling through their programs and campuses in about four years. Organization has been difficult to attain. Motivating people to band together and fight for reforms when they might not be around to reap the benefits is challenging.This summer there have been signs that is changing.College athletes have called out coaches and administrators, backed causes both social (Black Lives Matter) and political (changing the Mississippi state flag) and demanded to be part of the discussion about whether sports can be played safely during a pandemic. They have organized campus marches, threatened boycotts and trended on social media without stepping foot on a field.If this moment spawns a sustained movement, it will be because college athletes have learned to harness their collective power and laid a foundation for their successors.“We all know that this isn’t a movement for the present,” said Jaydon Grant, an Oregon State defensive back and a leader of the Pac-12 We Are United group. “As far as establishing something that lasts, I know that we’ll all be gone in a few years, all removed from college football, but I don’t look at it any differently than how you build the culture of a program.“With good leadership and good morals you build successful programs in college football and college athletics,” he said. “And that’s kind of the same thing we’re trying to do.”We Are United grabbed headlines last month with a bold and broad list of demands and a threat of mass opt outs of practices and games if the Pac-12 did not address them. The coronavirus and athlete compensation issues got most of the attention, but concerns about racial injustice in college sports truly spurred their movement.Within days, Big Ten United emerged — a group spun out of College Athlete Unity, founded earlier this year by athletes to “address systemic injustices in our communities.”Within a week, those two groups connected with players in other conferences, most notably Clemson star Trevor Lawrence to create the social media campaign #WeWantToPlay, which called for, among other things, the formation of a college football players association.“The scale of the discussions was never what it is right now,” said Michigan defensive back Hunter Reynolds, a College Athlete Unity founder. “It’s athletes from all across the country, all sports in all divisions kind of talking among themselves now. I think that’s probably the biggest takeaway: Starting the connections, like, the nationwide connections.”The specific goals of each group are not perfectly aligned. As some conferences postponed their fall seasons, players pushed to play and some are still doing so .Still, the players say they don’t need unanimity to work together. They have been encouraged to see their efforts attract a wide range of athletes from future NFL millionaires such as Lawrence and Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell to walk-ons and athletes outside of football.”We all look at each other as equals,” Grant said. “We all realize that no man or woman is more important than the other. No sport is more important than the other.”Longtime observers of college sports and the NCAA marvel over what athletes have accomplished this year.Tim Nevius, an attorney and former NCAA investigator, said too often the debate over whether college athletes should be paid overshadows other issues. That the NCAA made its COVID-19 guidelines to members schools mandatory after athletes pushed for more stringent requirements was a huge win for players’ rights, he said.“I think that the message that the players are sending has staying power,” Nevius said. “They’re advocating for basic rights and fundamental fairness.”College sports leaders often tout the NCAA’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committees as a shining example of how athletes are given the opportunity to influence policies. SAAC representative sit on all sorts of committees. They have input in the legislative process and voting rights.Gabe Feldman, director of Tulane’s sports law program, said SAAC provides athletes a voice, but little power.“I think SAAC is a good group. And I think it’s important and I think it should continue, but it does not serve the same purpose as a unified structure that can actually have a true seat that the table,” Feldman said.Reynolds, the Michigan player, compared SAAC to student-body government in high school.“They’re fine having the students vote on the brand of chocolate milk that’s going to be in the cafeteria but when it comes to budget cuts and things of that nature that’s when the student becomes pretty ignored,” Reynolds said.Reynolds said the ultimate goal is that so-called seat at the table, but some who support the athletes question whether they can get there without help from lawmakers. Earlier this month a group of senators led by Democrats Cory Booker (N.J.) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) announced a c ollege athlete bill of rights they hope will be the foundation of sweeping legislation.Donna Lopiano, a former college sports administrator and coach who now runs a sports management consulting firm, said college athletes’ greatest power lies in their willingness to not play.“The athletes have to realize that they can get what they need if they’re willing to do that,” Lopiano said. “Look at what the institutions are doing now just to play. If the athletes say, ‘You know, forget about that money.’ I’m not sure they know the power they have.”A move to unionize football players at Northwestern was blunted by a National Labor Relations Board ruling in 2015 . But Feldman said the players could get the representation they desire without a labor union.“Just look at almost every professional association: Doctors, lawyers, dentists, plumbers, who aren’t in a union, but come together to benefit their profession,” he said.Jay Bilas, a former Duke basketball player and frequent NCAA critic who now does work for ESPN, said college athletes are more aware of their power than ever before. He called this summer an inflection point for college athlete rights.“Any decision about them should not be made without them,” Bilas said. “And right now, all decisions made about them are completely without them.”But for how much longer?'”Just because something is either going to take a long time or is going to be difficult doesn’t mean it’s not something that should be addressed,” Reynolds said. “So we felt like if we start addressing these things now … getting the ball rolling on addressing some of the issues that we felt strongly about that we could really create change that we might not see, but maybe 10 years down the road college athletes don’t have to worry about the same things we worry about.” last_img read more

Heisler: Whatever the Clippers are, they’re not going anywhere

first_img“We gonna say hi because we know each other,” Johnson said. “You just can’t say, ‘Hey, I want you to come to the Lakers’ — even though I’ll be wink-winking like (laughing uproariously and batting one eye theatrically). You know what that means, right?”We know what that means. Maybe they’ll work out hand signals, like thumb over George’s shoulder, hitchhike-style, means he’s outta there.Meanwhile, this summer’s biggest free agents are a few feet down the Staples Center hall in a dressing room about half the size of the Lakers’ palatial suite of rooms. With Magic looking as if he has heard that neither intends to leave, you can’t even find speculation linking Griffin and Paul with the Lakers amid the drivel on the internet.Kimmel asked Magic about CP3, too. Magic, who would certainly say hi to him, too, let it pass without comment, or wink.Of course, the first question is the Clippers commitment. This could be dicey since Steve Ballmer has owned them for three seasons with the team suffering devastating injuries at the end of these last two, not to mention Blake’s broken hand after punching out the equipment manager … after which there were, indeed, reports of Denver-Clippers trade talks about Blake and a giant package of Nuggets.New York area papers are now speculating on a Carmelo Anthony-for-Griffin trade, following the lead of a GQ piece in January headlined, “The One Trade That Would Fix Two Teams.”’They only missed by two teams. An eighth grader could tell you that neither team would have changed much. The Clippers would still be pretty good, the Knicks awful.Happily for the Clippers, the going price on Carmelo shouldn’t be remotely that high. With his age (32), salary ($26.2 million) and reputation (declining), and Knicks president Phil Jackson’s stated aim of getting rid of him, the Knicks are likely to have to take a young role player like Austin Rivers and a high-priced veteran like Jamal Crawford, the two Clippers whose names came up when Phil shopped Melo at midseason.You can imagine how heavy Clippers hearts have been since Griffin left in Game 3, even as they continued to battle, coming from 3-2 behind in Game 6 in Utah behind Paul, averaging a gaudy 27-10-5 in this series.Tipping off the despair they’re sucking up, the usually gracious Paul went off on a reporter who asked a routine-enough question after the Clippers’ Game 5 loss in Staples Center, about whether they would be back for Game 7.“What?” exclaimed Paul, as if slapped across the face. “What you think? I’m on the team. What you gonna say, ‘Nah, it’s over?’ That’s what you want to hear? Yes! C’mon man, you’ve been doing this long enough. Seriously, right?”Seriously, right. CP3 could almost certainly put up these numbers nightly, like Russell Westbrook or Steph Curry, but he’s a Real Point Guard as opposed to their hybrid versions.Of course, maybe Steph and Russell have it right. The Clippers are always saying they’re at their best when CP3 is at his most aggressive, but it takes an injury to Blake before CP3 throws unselfishness to the wind.Utah coach Quin Snyder has spent the past three games with his center, Rudy Gobert, sinking back into the lane on pick-and-rolls, letting CP3 come off with shooting room.Interestingly, it’s similar to what opponents did with Jazz icon John Stockton, another Real Point Guard. Former Lakers coach Del Harris once told me he had his guards go under screens on their pick-and-rolls, knowing how reluctant Stockton was to shoot.Ah, memories. ESPN play-by-play man Mark Jones reminisced about the old days, musing how much he missed the Delta Center … forgetting that he was sitting in it … although it has since been renamed EnergySolutions Arena and now Vivint Smart Home Arena.Memory used to be a luxury Clippers fans couldn’t afford, but this is a new day, little as you could convince Lakers fans of that.“There’s going to be some kind of sunshine for him at some point,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers after Griffin went down. “You’ve just got to weather this storm.”So must they all. It’s been a long one if you count Donald Sterling’s 32 seasons, although in comparison Ballmer’s have been a day at the beach. As Wavy Gravy said at Woodstock, “There’s always a little bit of heaven, even in a disaster area.”Mark Heisler has written an NBA column since 1991 and was honored with the Naismith Hall of Fame’s Curt Gowdy Award in 2006. His column is published Sundays in Southern California News Group print editions. Actually, insiders say the answer is no. Both love it here and want to stay.Normally, this kind of speculation is meaningless, with free agents prone to leaving on a whim. In their case, however, the speculation has been right as long as both players have been here, with both having already signed new contracts with nary a presentation from another team.If “here” could mean staying in the area while joining the Lakers, that doesn’t appear to be the case.With the Lakers dying to land a star, Magic Johnson is making no secret of his plans to pursue Indiana’s Paul George, a 2018 free agent whom the Pacers might move if he turns down their extension offer.You’re never in the dark for long with Magic, who went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and hinted that he’s targeting George when asked what he would say if he ran into him somewhere. Clippers forever.No, really. This isn’t a tribue to Chris Paul, much as he deserves it, as do they all for the professionalism they have shown after losing Blake Griffin once more.This is about their future, precarious as it looks, even if they escape their usual first-round exit in Sunday’s Game 7 … which would leave them to face mighty Golden State, looking at their usual second-round exit … after which CP3 and Blake can opt out and become free agents.Of course, this is irresistible to the press, which frames every reverse as the end of the current era, as in: Has Griffin/Paul played his last game as a Clipper?center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more


first_imgBY PAUL McLAUGHLIN, BALLAGHDEARG GARDEN CENTRE, LETTERKENNYDelightful DahliasIf you think that your garden lacks colour at this time of year it might be worth thinking about planting some Dahlias. These half hardy perennials are great for filling gaps in borders or for growing in containers and will provide you with a bright long lasting display of flowers well into the autumn. Dahlias are available in almost every colour with a wide variety of shapes and sizes of plants available.While Dahlias have suffered from being out of fashion for the last number of years, the good news is that with a number of new varieties coming on the market the Dahlia is back with a bang.Dahlias are what’s known as half hardy annuals, which means that they are usually too tender to survive outdoors all year round but if the tubers are lifted and dried just after the first frost they can be replanted in the spring.Dahlias are very easy to grow from seed and it is usually less trouble to grow new plants each year and to treat them as annuals. Dahlias require very little attention after planting out and will grow in almost any soil but they will really thrive in a sunny position in well drained fertile soil. They really benefit from organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure being dug into the soil and once planted should be watered and fed with a liquid fertilizer in the same way as other bedding plants. It is also important that you dead head regularly to extend the flowering season and to treat the surrounding area for slugs and snails.While Dahlias will provide you with months of enjoyment in the garden, their beauty is not restricted to the outdoors. All types of Dahlias make excellent cut flowers for indoor decoration. Dahlia flowers cut for indoor display will normally last more than a week if the water is changed daily. Dahlias grow quickly and flowers removed for display will soon be replaced.Flower buds on these plants usually grow in threes and if you are growing them for cut flowers you should remove the two side buds as this will devote the plants energy into making the remaining flower.* Want more information?
