Medium Opinion

Exploitation and March Madness


The editors over at Medium asked me to partake in an online conversation series with several writers that I admire about the exploitation of March Madness.

The discussion was started with a piece by the brilliant Bethlehem Shoals, founder of FreeDarko, that asked, “Are You Being Exploited By March Madness?

Responses to that piece can be found at the bottom of Shoals’s essay, including mine, which is titled, “Athletes Are More Than Mere Students.”
