This mailbag from Ace looks like last year's version of this post. Impressive foresight as a good chunk of the current class is mentioned.
"Luckily, Michigan is off to a strong start in the recruitment of Paramus (NJ) Catholic's Rashan Gary, the #2 overall prospect on the 247 Composite."

I'm a Red Bulls fans and watched most of Henry's games - he absolutely didn't treat it like a retirement league. He avoided most games on turf for health reasons, but he was Harbaugh-ishly competitive.
Rafa Marquez on the other hand treated MLS like shit.

Very few players transfer. Some who try face the wrath of vindictive (and well paid) coaches.

I also like David Roth's take:

As a follow-up, if current players were allowed (even limited) marketing rights, there wouldn't be so many awful commericals starring coaches during the tournament.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||It's not a fallacy at all.||
It's not a fallacy at all. College basketball players are generating enormous revenue and are economically limited in a number of ways: sharp restrictions on transfers, forbidden from marketing their image, etc. The last one is particularly important, because many college athletes have huge local profiles. For example, after the championship game last year, Spike would have been a prime candidate for local marketing.
The NCAA is a bizarre form of anti-worker socialism.

I glanced at his twitter. While tweeting at recruits is always creepy, professionals who use their full names tweeting at recruits is particularly bad.
https://twitter.com/BillBiddle1 is "Executive Director of the Ferguson Center for the Arts" but spends all his spare time tweeting at high schoolers.

Either players retiring or uniform nonsense. Nothing important would be announced via twitter on a Friday afternoon.
