NLRB Will Review Northwestern Ruling

NorthwesternAnother update on the Northwestern football case ahead of today's vote.  The NLRB announced that  it will review the ruling and accept amicus briefs on the issue of the players' status as employees.  Details to follow.  The vote today will still happen, but as we noted in yesterday's post, the ballots will not be opened until the NLRB rules.

On a related note, the NY Times has a story today on one of the major reasons for the drive to unionize college football players: better medical care.  Expect to see the NCAA get more serious about this--at least as long as the threat of unionization remains.
