College sports is one of the best-known entertainments around the world. But for the athletes, they are students first then athletes second. For college student-athletes, there are a variety of scholarships and grants to help pay for college or college debt. However, some critics say that student-athletes should be paid a salary like pro athletes would, with help from scholarships or grants. The authors of, College Athletes are being Educated, not Exploited, Val Ackerman and Larry Scott, argue that student-athletes are already paid by free education and other necessities.
Rather than viewing the Win From Within campaign as a far-stretched effort to increase sales, Gatorade starts a conversation with a population much more than just sports fans or Gatorade consumers. By viewing Abby Wambach as just a regular human and no longer the legendary athlete, Gatorade is able to attract attention to their brand by creating a more personal relationship with the athletes we idolize. Gatorade and Abby Wambach both know her memory will never be forgotten, but disconnecting the individual from their respective sports makes the story more personable for the audience. This advertisement specifically directs to the rhetorical appeals of pathos and ethos because of Wambach’s credibility and the emotion evoked from the story they create. As media consumers we believe that we have to listen to Wambach as she states we must forget her because she has a long history in the sport and knows what she is talking about.
The opponents may say it is the entertainment industry, and that any athlete is aware of the possible consequences when she/he signs a contract. Any athlete may be replaced, this is just a business, but even if it is not about highly paid athlete’s issues, the importance of professionals is undeniable. In my own experience, the trainers that I knew were people whom I can call the professionals. Some coaches worked with athletes to prepare them for the Olympic Games and some were themselves participants in the Olympic Games in the past. These coaches have told our group of athletes that not a single sporting achievement is worth the effort and sacrifice; moreover, the sport is not worth the health and
The National Collegiate Athletic Association is an organization that claims to be dedicated to the well-being and lifelong success of college athletes. The organization as a whole is dedicated to their mission. However lately there has been much concern over whether or not the NCAA is still able to provide the necessary leadership required, so that it may properly govern, and protect its members institutions. Some even claim that the NCAA is corrupt and cartel-based, given the lack regulation of the increasingly capitalistic operations as well as its exploitation of student-athletes. In the end though, as a non-profit institution, while it may not be utopian, the NCAA has worked tirelessly to prove that its monopoly is necessary for the achievement
Many believe that college athletes are similar to professional athletes and that they deserve to be paid for what they do. However, many college athletes are able to receive many other benefits, therefore additional compensation is not necessary. College athletes go to school to play their sport, but also go to get an education. Their main role is to prepare themselves for later in life, and being paid would take away if they were being paid. Student athletes are not professional athletes or entertainers, and should not be paid for playing on a college team.

AS91101 - 2.4 Writing Portfolio Piece Two - Cooper Title: Drugs in sports Drugs have become an integral part of any modern day sporting event. Drugs give an unfair advantage to the user and the competitors that are using enhancements are not using their own full abilities to win the Olympic medal or championship. This makes it unfair to other competitors that are not using a drug or other enhancements to compete.

Such as liver failure and development of breasts.

These bonds formed sometimes not only exist during the game but off the field as well.
