A lot of people don't like the way that Mark Emmertt and the NCAA handle their business, sitting on huge stockpiles of cash while the student athletes make them so much money without seeing any of it in return.

A well known critic is Arian Foster, running back for the Houston Texans, who doesn't miss any opportunity to make his point known about how he regards the organization.

Foster appeared at Harvard Business School today in association with the NFLPA and Domonique Foxworth - a British-born former NFL player who attends the school, along with Richard Sherman and Larry Fitzgerald to discuss social media and race in football.

Despite those being the topics of conversation Foster still managed to get a few digs into the NCAA along the way.

NFL Network reporter Albert Breer was at the event and tweeted some of Foster's quotes:

"Texans RB Arian Foster on the NCAA: "Now is the time to attack these swindlers and these crooks."'

"Arian Foster on college coaches: 'Why isn't their status amateur? Why doesn't he just get a whole bunch of master's degrees?' Got big laugh."

"Asked what the solution is to the NCAA problem, Arian Foster says, 'W-2s'"

The former UT man has always been known as advocating serious change in college football but is he right to suggest that athletes should be paid? Tell us what you think below...
