Choice is Looting?

This is really more appropriate here. In light of Katrina and the desire of many affected NCAA athletes wanting to continue their athletic career uninterrupted, the NCAA has decided to strictly enforce a rule where Division I players who transfer during season must sit out a full year before playing again. Here is the money quote:

"Let me call that athletic looting, to be provocative, and we won't stand for that," he said.

Athletic looting? How about endentured servitude instead? The NCAA should be ashamed of itself. This is yet another example of how college atheletics has become nothing more than glorified slavery. Hat tip Mises.
