FOOTBALL INC?

FOOTBALL INC.?  G.D.

“The popular proposals to spin off college football as a quasi minor league might help clean up the sport.  But they can’t make an end run around Title IX.”

The players, who might not be full-time students, would receive salaries.  The problem foreseen is Title IX,  a U.S. law mandating equal treatment for women.  There are also other objections about  business expenses including a big one, players’ salaries.

An end run in American football, used as an idiom here, is defined in the site http://www.sportsidioms.com.  Look under “football” in the definition list.
