John Oliver Blasts NCAA Over $1 Billion March Madness Scam [VIDEO]

Despite making over $1 billion in television ad revenue, student athletes aren’t paid a penny because they’re considered β€œamateurs” by NCAA standards.

With Tuesday marking the first round of the year’s biggest college tournament, John Oliver revealed some of the dirty practices of the NCAA on Sunday’s β€œLast Week Tonight.”

The NCAA has no intention of ever paying student athletes – despite bringing in more ad revenue than the Super Bowl and almost the entire NFL post-season combined and despite a former NCAA athlete letting it slip in an interview that β€œthere [were] hungry nights where [he] couldn’t eat.”
