New York – Six college football players have joined an anti-trust lawsuit filed against the NCAA. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the current players were added as plaintiffs on Thursday to a lawsuit in which the NCAA is accused of billions of dollars for allowing the likenesses of former players to be used without their being compensated for it.

Michael Hausfeld, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, is quoted by the AP as stating of the players, “These athletes are incredibly brave. They are well-aware of the risks of standing up to the NCAA, and yet they felt that this was the right thing to do.”

As noted by the AP, former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon is the lead plaintiff in the case.
