Mike says”Students all over the world work hard at the sport that true love and don’t get a lot in return for it”. While college athletes may not exactly be employees, they are more than just students. Consider the life of a student-athlete, though. The average Division I football player dedicates over 43hours per week to his sport, meaning that he spends more than a typical American work-week training and playing football, in addition to his class work. Their work, which generates exorbitant amounts of money year in and year out, deserves Compensation.
I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I’d have think long and hard before I let him play football,” says President Obama (Fox News). The debate of whether or not football should be banned started with this speech given by President Obama. Recently, studies have shown that a large number of hits may cause more brain damage than a handful of concussions. Although people think banning football will decrease the amount of teen deaths and concussions; football should not be banned because it is just as dangerous as any other high school sports, many people would lose their job if it was banned, and football and sports help keep kids off the street. Football should not be banned because it is just as dangerous as any other
True, but to be a student athlete is a tough ‘job’ to manage with going from the field to the library day in and day out: “Players are essentially working full-time football jobs while going to school; they deserve to be paid more than a scholarship” (Gregory). A scholarship isn’t just enough for these hard-working players who get rewarded with nothing at the end of the day. They often get a scholarship with the package, but that doesn’t cover all the expenses that come with college. Think of a college game that people attend often. Think of the money they’ve spent on the ticket(s), the food, the drinks, and even some souvenirs.
Introduction: Since the beginning of college sports, people have been captured by it. Some fanatics will say it is not a game, but a way of life. Today millions of fans, young and old, flock to stadiums and arenas around the country. They aren’t paying to see super-star millionaires, they come to see teenagers and young adults in college compete against each other. These athletes of big-time division I college football and basketball teams aren’t your typical college students.
These numbers clearly show that the more you play football the more likely you are to become depressed down the road. There is also no debate that the health of players should be the top priority for any organization in charge of football. While it is easy for some to say football is too dangerous to be played it is harder to admit that the general public is the biggest reason why it is still being played. The population's obsession with the game of football is the driving force behind the game that the same exact people are saying should not be played. Football players know the risk they put themselves at every day and they have made a conscious decision that the risk is worth the reward.
There is currently nothing systematically in place to provide funds to the sports athletes who generate so much for the universities, and the revenue continues to climb for the NCAA, as they claim a scholarship is sufficient enough even the playing field amongst universities and their athletes and stress that the uproar will change college sports forever.The public has seen the exploitation of these athletes and are asking questions regarding the legitimacy of the structure and are now demanding these athletes be compensated for there hard work. So as the money skyrockets for the NCAA, the athletes are left needing amendments to the power structure that has held them down for so long; in order to change this Congress must step in make sure
When the desegregation began the sports teams had to merge into one and this presented a big obstacle for the towns’ most loved sport which is football. Despite the adversity the football team came together but had some major issues but to get to a successful story they had to overcome a lot of adversity such as the segregation of their school, the matter of who’s gonna be head coach, and getting the players to play as a team. This is one of favorite movies because it shows how through all the odds that were stacked against them they overcame the odds such as racism and relationship building to form a high caliber team. The major theme of this movie was racism and that was followed up with various sub themes but three that stuck out to me were racial ideology, overcoming adversity, and the building of friendships. When I first began to analyze this film, you had to think about the period in which it actually took place which was 1971 in rural southern Virginia before title IX was even passed.
Why are people so worried about how much money a professional athlete makes? So many people are worried about how much money a professional athlete make, they say why doesn’t it go two someone in need or why don’t teachers make more money, they are teaching our future generation. Yes teachers may be teaching owner future, and yes there are servicemen putting their lives on the line, but these athletes aren’t regular athletes. Professional athletes have trained and sacrificed ever since they were little kids play youth sports to become who they are today. These athletes sacrifice their body’s day in and day out, they sacrifice time in the gym or on the field day in and day out instead of being with their families.
These guys eat, sleep, and breath football and when they have the chance to carry it there is no give in their effort. The most important setting of the book Friday Night Lights is the field and with the field the most important objects are the lights and the football. When you put all these together you get a great game of football. Pushing to do your best and win that state tournament. Without these three things this wouldn’t be
Same for coaches, administrators, owners, all the way up and down...Face it--there are people that aren't capable of benefitting from the great life lessons of football, and all sports. They use the game only for self gain. Many become millionaires only to squander the money. Bankrupt in short order, having gained no worthwhile skills, and having done only damage to society...Once again, who plays is important. People must be screened on a person by person level.
This is another reason why college athletes should be paid. As reported by Shelly Anderson, Jeremy Bloom was a talented football player for the University of Colorado and also a talented skier who competed in the World Cup Championships and the Olympics. “The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) ruled Bloom had violated its rules on college athletes having their own endorsement deals because Bloom accepted endorsement deals as a skier. Bloom could no longer play college football.” Due to Bloom’s tremendous skill in skiing he was offered sponsorships and endorsements. As any other person would ideally do in that situation he accepted them.
Bissinger’s “Friday Night Lights” paints a perfect picture of the culture of Texas in the 1980’s. It illustrates just how much football played in a role in the lives of everyone in the community, as well as the ideals these people had. Football was all that they cared about, and the people sacrificed other aspects of their life for it. With all of the money going towards football, education in the state suffered. The classrooms in high schools were outdated, and teachers were underpaid, ultimately compromising the quality of the student’s education.
