Dick Vitale rips Arian Foster, compares him to prostitute

Arian-Foster-TexansDick-Vitale

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently admitted that he received improper benefits during his college years at Tennessee, which is hardly a surprise given the state of collegiate athletics. Many players prior to Foster have taken money and others will continue to violate rules until a logical solution is formulated.

After seeing the footage of Foster in the upcoming EPIX documentary “School: The Price of College Sports,” ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale sent out a tweet comparing Foster and others who take money to prostitutes.

Vitale’s colleague Jay Bilas, who recently did a phenomenal job of exposing the NCAA for profiting off athletes’ names, would likely have a much different take.

I don’t think you can describe what Foster did in the documentary as “moaning.” He was simply telling the truth and shedding light onto a widespread issue. Comparing an athlete to a person who gets paid for sex seems a bit dramatic.
