If you have zero concern with the administration you shouldn't be concerned about players utilizing what's in place. Just like other aspects of their lives, these things will be monitored and monitored closely. I see contradiction saying, "I'm trust who is in charge" but "I don't trust what they are in charge of."
Single game tickets. We see that every season.
That really makes zero sense. How am I contradicting myself? Just because there are people in charge does not mean people are utilizing that. Do I trust a decision from educated executives and a board with experience or do I trust a 17/18/19/20/21 year old athlete? Look only as far as students that fail out of school. Look at players that transfer out or get kicked off the team for not doing what is right even with everything offered to them and in place. For every one Landon Collins or Jacob Copeland there are a hundred JTT's where they listen to their parents and move on. Or there are just players that will make stupid decisions. This isn't some unfounded opinion, it's based off of true story facts.
I can see this a couple of ways. I see Alabama finding a way to make money from this setup, so they got in front of what they knew was coming and found an angle. We thinking Byrne out of the goodness of his heart decided to throw money into this just to help out the poor athletes? No way, he knows this is a cash cow he can exploit and make more money for the university. There will be partnerships between Alabama and sports agencies to gain access to these players once this engine gets going. Smart on his part, but definitely an angle.
And no, not Single Game tickets, renewable season ticket packages. I know the difference.
