US professional sports – insight into dysfunctionality

Due to their abject failure to behave consistently or equitably when dealing with player behavior issues, and their craven kow-towing to the forces of censorious asshattery by collectively refusing to employ Colin Kaepernick, I am currently boycotting the NFL.
However, this article shows the extent to which, despite the intellectually dense view that players earning $500,000 a year are more “privileged” than “exploited”, many players in the NFL, NBA and MLB are essentially subjected to a process when the join those leagues that is far from the exercise of free will. The current process is remarkably similar to the now-defunct British naval tradition of the Press Gang.The whole process is part of the weird Faustian bargain where schools and colleges act as training grounds for professional sports, while officially not paying the players.
