That goes way too far. It's voluntary, no one is getting beaten and the vast majority of them could use that degree if they bother to get it. I believe they should be allowed to pursue whatever off-court income they want and should get whatever cut of the on-court pie they can grab but comparing this to slavery is absurd and trivializes the horror slaves went through.
Also, there area lot of college sports teams that aren't profitable or making a minor amount of money.
