NCAA Looking At Allowing Players More Access To Representation
Published May 20, 2011
OTHER ISSUES: NCAA regulations as related to agents, as well as the BCS system, dominated the first day of the conference. In addition to the panel on agent interference, the conference hosted a town hall debate on the issue of whether the NCAA's BCS system violates antitrust laws. Allen Fishel, an attorney who represents the Mountain West Conference and Boise State Univ., argued that the system does violate U.S. antitrust laws. But attorney Robert Wierenga, who represents the NCAA, said the BCS system is not a violation of antitrust law because antitrust laws were adopted to protect economic competition and have rejected antitrust challenges to rules adopted by leagues and other sports entities.
