On Friday, April 25, 2014, football players at Northwestern University cast secret ballots about whether they would become the first college athletes in the country to form a union. While the results of this vote may not be known for some time due to legal disputes, it added fuel to ongoing conversations in college sports about the rights of players. BTR Pulse’s Sarah Fraser spoke with people on the street, as well as with sports business reporter and author Kristi A. Dosh, about whether they think college athletes should be able to unionize.
Kristi A. Dosh is author of Saturday Millionaires: How Winning Football Builds Winning Colleges.
