BREAKING NEWS: CAPA Wins at NLRB, Northwestern Players to Vote on Unionization

A stunning outcome for college sports.....this will reverberate.

Matt Marton-USA; TODAY Sports

Per Rohan Nadkarni, Northwestern players and CAPA have won their lawsuit at the National Labor Relations Board in Chicago.  As a result, Northwestern players will hold a vote on whether to unionize.

Northwestern is expected to appeal, so this is just the first round in a battle that will potentially go all the way to the Supreme Court (indeed, I fully expect it to). But this will clearly impact college football and college sports generally, and is a historical moment.

Discuss away.....but please do your best to keep this civil and non-political (while recognizing that this is a politically charged issue), folks.
