College Football Playoff Will Reimburse Parents Who Attend Title Game
Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports
The College Football Playoff has been doing everything right in its first year thus far, and now they want to pay for the families of players who are heading to Arlington for Monday’s Ohio State vs. Oregon Championship game. According to a press release, the Playoff will reimburse up to two parents or guardians for each player up to $1,250 each for travel costs. Per the College Football Playoff...

The reimbursement will cover expenses for hotel accommodations in North Texas and travel reimbursement and meal expenses for a maximum of two parents or legal guardians per athlete. The reimbursement will be capped at $1,250 per parent or guardian.

“We know how expensive travel can be, so we’re pleased to provide assistance for parents or guardians who want to see their sons play in the first College Football Playoff National Championship,” said Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff. “It will make the game even more special for the student-athletes to know that their family members are receiving this benefit.”

The CFP moved quickly to provide this benefit as a pilot program just six days before the National Championship Game. The program will be evaluated going forward to make certain it provides the appropriate amount of permissible assistance.

What about taxpayers who paid for food stamps and medicare for the athletes for 18 years? We have invested as much in these kids as their "parents".
