Many questions left unanswered in AD Fan Town Hall
Posted July 17, 2014
Durham, N.C. — In the realm of college sports, academics and athletics, every fan knows there are more questions than answers.
Should players see some financial benefit from their work on the field? What's a fair division of revenue? Is the NCAA's amateurism model outdated?
When 99.9 FM The Fan and WRALSportsFan invited Triangle-area college athletic directors for a candid conversation, we knew 90 minutes would be nowhere near enough. WRAL's Jeff Gravley and The Fan's Adam Gold managed to touch on issue of pay-to-play, academic qualifications and, briefly, the role of the NCAA.
But they left plenty of topics unexplored, too. That's why we invited you to participate.
In the social spirit, here are some of the questions we didn't get to. There's plenty of food for thought here for more reporting, more discussion and, of course, a future #FanTownHall.
