ONN – Leigh Steinberg Talks California College Athletes Pay SB 206 Law And It’s Impact
The famed sports agent Leigh Steinberg, with legendary clients like Steve Young and Troy Aikman in the past to Patrick Mahomes in the present, talks about the potential impact of California’s new college athletes pay law, set to become active in 2023.
California Governor Gavin Newsom and California State Senator Nancy Skinner signed SB 206 into law on a special episode of UNDEFEATED, with LA Lakers star LeBron James.
Leigh, a big proponent of pay for college athletes, presented common scenarios of what a college athlete has to go through that even standard students aren’t financially harmed by. One example is not being able to get paid doing something that they’re being trained to do in college for rise to professional rank: play a sport.
Mr. Steinberg also talked about what still needs to be “ironed out” in SB 206 with respect to agents and students after 2023.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
