Danny Kanell, Bomani Jones, Joey Galloway Had A Heated Debate Over Darren Carrington, Paying Players

While recent reforms and rule changes in college athletics have given athletes more rights and privileges, there is still a serious debate among sports fans whether or not players should be paid. With the recent suspension of Oregon's Darren Carrington as a backdrop, ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio started a heated debate that eventually roped in ESPN's Danny Kanell, Bomani Jones, and Joey Galloway.
