    Yeah, that really seemed very rumor when I read it, and has to be about something other than the release.

    Perhaps slander.

    You are well informed and have identified many issues which could and should be challenged from a legal perspective. Sport governing bodies have bylaws which usually have an appeals process in place for their membered athletes. Using the NCAA as an example the transfer rule was changed this past season and passed through legislation . Analysts attribute the reason for the change was due to the impending litigation against the NCAA for antitrust. College athletes no longer need to seek a release from their current institution. The NCAA is a 501 c3 non profit. Cheers organization is a registered non profit at the state level only. I would be curious to see how far their “reach” into any any punishable matter would be if challenged.

    Yes! They still have to apply for an immediate eligibility waiver with the NCAA or sit out a season, but at least it isn't the program deciding. UGA just had this situation with Justin Fields. People say it was because he didn't get to play much, but in the end it didn't matter. He filled out the immediate eligibility waiver and it was approved by the NCAA. The reason stated on the waiver hasn't been released yet, but people are speculating he cited racial reasons, specifically the Adam Sasser (baseball player) situation where Adam yelled racial slurs about Justin in the stands at a football game.

    A portal for athletes has been devoloped for all registered NCAA athletes who might even wish to identify their interest and intent to transfer.
