The California Senate has recently passed a bill allowing for collegiate student-athletes to have endorsements.
What does this mean? That a player would be able to essentially get paid — “Fair Pay to Play” if you will.
On Friday morning’s edition of ESPN’s First Take, Tim Tebow — a player who knows all about players potentially making money for their name, image and likeness — voiced his opinion on the matter.
In short, he is against players making money:

Tebow’s argument revolves around the fact that the passion and love for college football wouldn’t be there anymore. As he stated, “It’s not about us, it’s not about we. It’s about me.”
Tebow does have a point here. Could some players become selfish knowing that at the end of the day, they can make money based on their play? Potentially.
Maybe players would care more about themselves and not the team.
And it may only be a certain amount of time until we get to see whether or not that will be the case.
