I was watching the Colts vs. the Rams last evening and there was a commercial about youth football leagues and how there were grants available (up to 25k). Then I wondered where these grants were coming from. After just checking out a few sites, it looks like the NFL provides the funds in partnership with the National Football League’s Youth Football Fund and some localities. Is this a form of wealth redistribution, distributional equity, or an alternative to education (sports as the way out)?
Sure, it is wealth redistribution, but it is voluntary, and the participant is responsible for what they do with it, IOW, if they act stupid, they won't be invited back. So I'm cool with the situation.Post a Comment
