Is this the same NLRB that a judge said was illegally formed?

if they're "employees" on account of their participation in school athletics, then it seems that, with respect to such athletic activities, they cannot simultaneously be "students" and therefore one wonders whether there are any laws/rules affecting "students" that they should lose the benefit of.

The players are going to regret this when their union starts demanding dues.
