Arian Foster Bucks NCAA System I took Cash While

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is fighting for college athletes’ rights. The pro player says he isn’t scared of the NCAA, and hopes that his admission that he was paid while playing in college at Tennessee will help change rules about paying college athletes.“I just feel strong about the injustice that the NCAA has been doing for years,” Foster said Friday. “That’s why I said what I said. I’m not trying to throw anybody under the bus. … I feel like I shouldn’t have to run from the NCAA anymore. They’re like these big bullies. I’m not scared of them.”In an interview posted on SI.com for a documentary called “Schooled: The Price of College Sports,” Foster said he took extra money so he could pay his rent and food while playing at Tennessee.“I don’t know if this will throw us into an NCAA investigation — my senior year (2008), I was getting money on the side,” Foster said in the video. “I really didn’t have any money. I had to either pay the rent or buy some food. I remember the feeling of like, ‘Man, be careful.’ But there’s nothing wrong with it. And you’re not going to convince me that there is something wrong with it.”Foster described a time when he had to beg his coach for a meal.“Either you give us some food or I’m gonna go do something stupid,” Foster told his coach. The coach bought him and three others 50 tacos,  Foster recalled, laughing.Foster played at the University of Tennessee under former coach Phil Fulmer from 2005-08. read more

Harvey Tynes Calls Prime Minister Christie A Dismal Failure

Perry Christie happens to be one of my favourite people.”, Mr. Tynes said.“I voted PLP, most Bahamians voted PLP. We chose Perry Christie to lead our country out of the mess it was in. Now five years later what has Christie given us in return?”, Tynes continued.Turning his attention to the failed referendums on gaming and gender equality, Mr. Tynes noted that in both instances Mr Christie lied about his administration’s agenda and wasted millions of dollars on propaganda.“He also gave us VAT,” he said, “a crippling tax burden on the poorest of our people who are now literally starving to death. He gave us a series of downgrades in our credit rating as a country to our current junk status and now we are in danger of our Bahamian dollar being devalued.”Mr Tynes said: “Meanwhile violent crime in our country has gone completely out of control and now comes the shocking news that senior well-paid members of Christie’s cabinet are out there begging rich foreigners for personal favours instead of working to protect our interests as a people.”He added: “Let us face the truth, Perry Christie has been a dismal failure and complete disaster.”#magneticmedianews#harveytynescallsPMafailure Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
