“As a former college athlete, that's exciting. You spend so much time in college broke, with no money, and yet everybody else was living very well,” Green said. “The university is making a ton of money off your likeness.”

"I think it's a win, obviously, in California...I'm just honored to be a part of it and be with the governor and for him to understand what a lot of these athletes have been going through for so many years. So, it's a start of something that we believe is special."

I was handcuffed by the NCAA rules that prevented me from deriving any benefit from my own name and likeness. The NCAA is a billion dollar industry built on the backs of college athletes. The Fair Pay to Play act is about empowering athletes.

- NYT Opinion, 10.09.19

"It is a sign of the times that we in college athletics must continually adapt, albeit in a sensible manner. We need to stay current with what’s happening. I’m glad [the Fair Pay to Play Act] was passed because it pushes the envelope, it pushes the issue.”"

- Sports Illustrated, 09.30.19

"I think this [the Fair Pay to Play Act]is going to even that out. It’s either going to cripple the NCAA in a way that they start to bend and make it more fair and more of a symbiotic relationship between players and the NCAA, or it’s going to destroy them and will start a whole new way of college athletics"
