Reminds me of the Knicks… all talk no action. Every year.

You have to look at the Knicks as part of a larger sports package-- that includes the Mets (baseball), Jets (football), and Islanders (hockey). These four Queens/Long Island fan favorite teams have combined for a breathtaking number of championships over the last 38 years. In fact, if I divide this number into 38, I can't even define what that answer is.

Giants and Yanks made up for it.

Is this called a financial participation trophy?

Typically if you like the Mets, Jets, and Islanders, you don't like the Yankees, Giants, and Rangers. The Nets are so recent that both sets of fans usually also like the Knicks.

Only 57% of D1 athletes get any form of a scholarship. Only for the so-called "head-count" sports (e.g. football (FBS), basketball, women's gymnastics, tennis, and volleyball) must every scholarship cover the full cost of attendance (i.e. Division I FBS football teams can offer up to 85 full-ride scholarships, and Division 1 women's volleyball teams can offer up to 12 full-ride scholarships per team). In "equivalency" sports (e.g. track & field, swimming, and baseball), scholarships are typically divided among multiple athletes (e.g. D1 baseball teams get to divide up 11.7 scholarships per team; that doesn't go very far).

The scholarship limits seem imbalanced. D1 hockey for both men and women get 18 each. Rowing gets 20. Soccer just 9.9. Men's hoop gets 13, women's 15 - one for every team member.

Women's golf gets 6, while men's gets 4.5.

Then why should they get paid reparations?
