Abstract

The NCAA’s surveillance of the family and enforcement of its rules amounts to a consumption restraint on the families of talented NCAA athletes. In order to keep its cartel in place, the NCAA must ensure that not only an athlete but anyone in his family does not extract any value from his talent. These rules disproportionately disadvantage poor individuals of color. This underscores the inherent unjust nature of the college sports system and the complicity courts and legislators required to keep it in place.
