College sports are called amateurs, but the schools and the NCAA make millions of dollars a year off the performance of its players. Athletic coaches are allowed to make millions of dollars off the success of their programs. Some coaches make more money than their state representatives all the will their players are only guaranteed a scholarship they can revoked at any time for a various of reason’s. Business across the nation would like to be doing what the NCAA and universities are doing with their student athletes. Nowhere else in America are you going to find that a multi-million-dollar business that gets revenue off its employees that have signed contracts but not pay them.
In his argument, “Forgive Student Loans? Worst Idea Ever” mentioned how the importance of college student loans should be paid off. Due to the amount of irresponsibility that may happen. Believing if students were not to pay student loans, they would waste an amount of money per year, an amount that will increase. Together, the two debates profound sufficient information, to catch their audience attention, but only one debate had the enough statistics to prove it’s point.
It would be really helpful for some students to get some extra money. An associated press article, “Paying college athletes fits modern reality”, explained that some students come from poor families. Why not let them earn some extra bucks? It states, “They might be sufficient for students with academic scholarships, who can supplement their income by working after class. Athletes often can’t.” This shows that students who come from poor families can’t work after classes even if they wanted to because of practice.
They earn the massive income as the laborers (athlete) settle for pennies. Why would we continue to support a system that blatantly takes advantage of those that take in part? If American jobs took the same approach as the NCAA, where would are country be today? In order to stop the injustice, pay is the only thing that will change the landscape of college
In conclusion, college athletes should be paid because they bring in a ton of revenue for their schools while risking injury and yet are unable to afford the cost of living. The time that is put into the sport is the equivalent, if not more, than the time that is put into a full time job. Only thirty-three percent of students receive scholarships, most of them partial. Also, only one percent of all college athletes will play professional sports after their college tenure is served. The NCAA and Division One Colleges generate profits that do not trickle down to the athletes.
Yes they are given scholarships, yes they are given an opportunity to change their situation and their future. But, if put the numbers into perspective you see that they are only getting a fraction of what they deserve. They are grossly under compensated in comparison to the billions the NCAA brings in using their likeness every year. The athletes need to be paid for playing for universities. After all it is their choice to go there.
Should the NCAA Pay College Athletes? College athletes spend just as much, or more time at practice, games, and traveling, as they do in the classrooms studying. This issue is very common in the NCAA. There 's been former players suing the NCAA for not getting payed. They’ve been put on video games, clothes, and on magazines, but they don’t get a penny for it.
Juggling school and finding a source of income is a prominent issue amongst undergraduates, and it is one of the main reasons that excessive amounts of undergraduates are dropping out of community college. Of course, anything adding to the dropout rate is a serious issue and should be solved appropriately and quickly. Politicians and other important leaders in the United States of America are implementing laws and bills that will benefit undergraduates who are striving to pay for their education. Tugend writes, “Bills are pending in congressional committees to carry out President Obama’s America’s College Promise proposal to make community colleges free to responsible high school graduates.” These bills will drastically help college students who cannot afford to pay for their education. I believe rewarding optimal behavior of undergraduates will not only assist them in paying for college, but I also believe it will make them want to continue to perform well.
I don’t think athletes should get paid because the purpose of college for everyone is to get an education to better your future. Athletes are being paid in terms of receiving money towards their education. Being a student-athlete is not a job, so we don’t need to worry about who the number one pick will be coming out of high school. This will create a bidding war among colleges and the NCAA will lose control of intercollegiate athletics. Coaches’ salaries should be reduced and more money should go into more scholarships.
The rule in college is players”may not accept gifts or money from sports agents, booster clubs, alumni , or companies to make life easier.”(DOL 105) Playing in college is just like playing in the pros. The money college schools make from game tickets, tv broadcasting, and food concessions at their games is almost more than some pro games. They deserve the money because people are coming to watch them, not the team owners or the coach or the NCAA board. By reading this book you will find out why but the answer might shock
Unpaid Labor: Paying College Athletes College athletics is profitable. millions of dollars of revenue are generated by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), a non-profit organization that control’s college athletics. Where does this money go? Certainly not the workers. “The irony is that, while sports events generate millions for each school, the workers are not paid” (Eitzen).
Why Collegiate Athletes Should Not Be Paid Annually the NCAA as a whole brings in approximately six billion dollars, yet the people generating the income are not making a dime? In the United States collegiate sporting events are a massive industry but the players do not receive an income because they are technically amateurs. Is it time to start paying college athletes? Or should players continue to be rewarded in free education? Many believe it is absurd to still consider the NCAA amateur sports after all it has become but just as many think the exact opposite and that college athletes already receive fair compensation for their participation.
Paying college athletes is a controversial topic. College athletes are normally towards getting paid. The rest of the collegiate body has split opinions. One opinion is that college athletes shouldn’t be paid. Some people believe this because college athletes aren’t employees, sports programs do not have the money to spare, and there are already scholarships given to athletes.
Over recent years a question that has been of popular discussion is, should college athletes get paid? Throughout the past few decades college sports have become as popular as professional sports in America. As of right now college athletes do not get paid although many people believe that they should. The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) brings in an average of six billion dollars annually, which is because of the athletes so why should they not get paid? College athletes promote the school they attend by playing, and with all the money they bring to the school there is no reason they should not get some type of compensation.
College sports collect millions of dollars each year:Approximately around 40 million dollars a year, states and universities make. You would think that the amount of money that is made would get split between the franchises ,students and schools but unfortunately the students that play receive none of it.Theres many discussions on if college athletes should or should not get paid and because they already receive scholarships then they shouldn 't get paid. Scholarships in itself is “around 25,000-30,000 per year for example a student who 's division 1 thats over 100,000 for 4 years of college(Hartnett 1)”.So if college athletes would start getting paid then they shouldn 't get any scholarships and they would just have to pay for it with the money they are receiving. College Athletes contribute about “43 hours a week to the sport with practices and games, that doesn’t include the school work they have to do(Edleman 1)”. There has been many debates about it and fights to get this to happen from
