Good news.  Not being able to profit off of your skills is downright un-American.

The devil is in the details, and when it comes to SCOTUS rulings the details are in the wording of the majority opinion (and that the opinion was unanimous says a lot itself). As the CNN article states, the wording of this opinion definitely leaves open the possibility of more legal challenges to the NCAA.

Good to see it was unanimous. Long overdue.

This quote from Kavanaugh in a concurrence with the opinion is the money statement (literally and figuratively).

 

"Nowhere else in America can businesses get away with agreeing not to pay their workers a fair market rate on the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers a fair market rate,"

 

​So basically, claiming that amateurism is what makes college sports so great, and then colluding to make sure your athletes remain amateurs, ain't gonna fly if another case comes across their docket. (at least as far as Kavanaugh is concerned)
