NCAA files notice of appeal in O’Bannon case

Statement from Donald Remy, chief legal officer:

"We are appealing the Court’s decision because we do not believe the NCAA has violated the antitrust laws.  In its decision, the Court acknowledged that changes to the rules that govern college athletics would be better achieved outside the courtroom, and the NCAA continues to believe that the Association and its members are best positioned to evolve its rules and processes to better serve student-athletes. The reform conversation began long before this lawsuit and the changes announced earlier this month are evidence of the NCAA continually working to improve the student-athlete experience."
