Those Pricey Amateurs


The head of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, a nonprofit, makes $763,000 a year. Maybe Myles Brand is worth that. Maybe Brand's speeches on the "inappropriate intrusion of commercialism" and his vow that "college sports must not be allowed to be drawn to the professional model like a moth drawn to a flame" are just what we need.

But I'm pretty sure you can get such hot air for $200K, $300K tops. Look at Congress.
