Shame on the NCAA — The Silvio de Sousa punishment should lead to new ownership within the NCAA

I’ve had just about enough with Mark Emmert and the the NCAA as a whole. They are disgusting, ruthless, human beings and all they care about is their non-profit organization that they are running, which is the NCAA. They should all be ashamed of themselves.

Silvio de Sousa, Kansas Power Forward, has been ruled ineligible for the remainder of this season and the whole next season. Why? Because his GUARDIAN took advantage of Silvio’s basketball skills and took $2,500. Not $2.5 million, no, they took, two thousand, five hundred dollars.

This is a shameful, hurtful act that the NCAA has portrayed. Bill Self said it right.

To take away a kids college eligibility, for something that he was not aware of or something he could not control, is sickening. You are taking away this kids future. A kid from Angola, who came to the United States to play basketball and pursue a professional career in it, not just for himself, but to provide for his family. And Mark Emmert took that all away from that kid. Because of $2,500. Mark Emmert and the NCAA just ruined a kids dream by suspending him 80 games for something he didn’t do. It makes me utterly sick.

There needs to be a change within the NCAA. The rules need to be changed, the people in charge need to be changed and the people need to be held accountable. The fact that Mark Emmert and company are marketing these kids, who don’t get paid any money, and those losers within the NCAA are collecting all their non tax paying dollars, is truly ridiculous. Someone, and I mean anyone, needs to look at Mark Emmert in the eye and ask him how he sleeps at night. Ask him how he feels as a man, as a human being. Ask him, if he’s proud of himself. Because he is a shameful, despicable human being.

And better yet, the NCAA promoted Silvio de Sousa during one of their March Madness commercials. THEY TOO WERE USING SILVIO DE SOUSA’S BASKETBALL TALENT TO MAKE A PROFIT. AND THEY SUSPENDED HIM FOR FOR THE SAME THING THEY DID THAT THE GUARDIAN DID.

Like I said, someone needs to look at Mark Emmert and everyone on the NCAA board and ask themselves, what type of people are you? They should all be fired for this malicious act.

Rock Chalk. Got your back Silvio.

Shame on every single one of these people.
