[ti:NCAA Votes to Permit College Athletes to Make Money] [by:www.otzgay.live] [00:00.00]更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM [00:00.04]The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has taken the first step [00:07.47]toward permitting college athletes to make money from their "name, image and likeness." [00:15.16]The NCAA Board of Governors voted on the issue Tuesday [00:20.64]during a meeting at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. [00:26.64]The United States' largest governing body for college sports said [00:32.12]it understands that it "must embrace change to provide [00:36.68]the best possible experience for college athletes." [00:41.96]NCAA rules have long barred players from employing agents. [00:47.32]It has also generally refused to let schools pay players. [00:53.63]The board has asked each of the NCAA's three divisions to begin creating new rules [01:01.38]that protect amateurism and permit players to make money. [01:07.08]The divisions must establish the new rules by January 2021. [01:14.08]Board chair Michael V. Drake said in a statement Tuesday, [01:18.77]"The board is emphasizing that change must be consistent with the values of college sports [01:27.61]and higher education and not turn student-athletes into employees of institutions." [01:33.52]Late last month, California passed a law permitting college athletes to hire agents [01:40.60]and make money from endorsement deals. [01:43.78]The law protects athletes who sign such deals from dismissal by their team. [01:50.08]The California law is set to take effect in 2023. [01:55.20]Other states are moving on similar legislation that could go into effect as soon as 2020. [02:03.68]The NCAA has 1,100 member schools and almost 500,000 athletes. [02:11.04]It has refused to pay players in most cases. [02:15.20]But it has permitted some exceptions. [02:18.40]Olympians, for example, can accept winnings they receive from earning medals. [02:24.40]And major athletic conferences have been able to give players wages of between $2,000 and $4,000 a year. [02:35.72]The NCAA reported $1.1 billion in earnings in 2017.
