Colin Cowherd: NCAA Perfect Example of Socialism

Posted: Feb 13, 2016 7:30 AM

An interesting piece from Colin Cowherd's sports talk show "The Herd" gives a great example of how ideas like socialism only make the rich richer, and the poor poorer.  Look no further than in men's college football to see what happens when heavy restrictions are put on teams and corporations to try and level the playing field.

"They have enacted all sorts of rules for 30 years to make it even, let's see if it's worked: Alabama is, in the last five years, 62-7. Three titles," Colin said. "That's weird, so we enact all these changes to hurt the powerful, and Alabama has never been more powerful."

As an Alabama fan, I certainly enjoy the 'rich get richer' mentality when it comes to my favorite sports team.  However, I do not believe this is exactly what our founding fathers intended.
