The incentives were that they would get: 50 acres of land, One year supply of food, and free seed and agricultural supplies for a year. They worked hard because they were going to get all of these things, and they knew if they did not then they would be sent on a 90 day voyage all the way back and they would have to be stuck without anything. Back then people could tell if you were rich if you had a lot of land and a nice house, but the thing is that they could not tell if they had a better house or not because everyone’s house looked the exact same. 3) What happened to many of the first settlers within a few years of their arrival?
Universities across the country are earning millions of dollars each year from their various athletic programs. Many college athletes face countless hardships because they face a magnitude of restrictions while attending college. Student athletes are risking their personal safety and putting their futures at risk for the benefits of the universities. Nevertheless, the only compensation they are allowed to receive is a scholarship that can only be warranted on a yearly basis. Everyone is reaping the benefits of the college athletic programs while the student athletes are the ones who are risking everything with no reward.
What do people go to games for, the actual players or the coaches? In hopes that the answer is the players, the question that arises is why do the coaches get paid so much while the players get paid, nothing: “At the University of Alabama, the head football coach, Nick Saban, recently signed a contract paying him $7 million per year - more than 160 tunes the average wage of a Tuscaloosa public school teacher” (Edelman). The simple fact that coaches get paid that much per year is outrageous because they’re not the ones who are out on the court or the field making those plays that make it possible for them to get paid. No, the player’s should not get paid a significant difference compared to the coaches but they should indeed get paid considering they are the ones making all the plays afterall.
It should be the opposite, our soldiers who are keeping this country safe and free are more important than a game with pigskin ball. The biggest thing a football player actually has to worry about is making six points. There is no record of any NFL football player dying from injuries due to playing football. Sadly between 2003-2004 1486 deaths occurred in the Army (Casualties,2017). Our soldiers have to worry about coming home in one piece which brings me back to Pat & the unknown soldier.
He never saw a good outcome is violence,nothing good comes out of it. If you protest and don 't buy their goods or anything they will break eventually. In Martin Luther King 's own words he says “ IN the past six months simply by refusing to purchase products from companies which would not hire negroes in meaningful numbers and in all job categories, the Ministers of Chicago under SCLC’s Operation Breadbasket have increased the income of the Negro community by more than two million dollars annually”. This is a non violence at its peak of power,when it cuts into the profit margin of a business in order to bring about a more just distribution of jobs and opportunities for Negro wage earners. In these two sentences you can obviously see that by protesting and no violence Negro job distribution has gone up.
Katie Hill Mrs. Gallos English 3 Honors 20 March, 2018 Should Athletes Be Paid? College athletes in the United States have been struggling with the fact that their job allows them to work just as many hours a week than a regular job does, but they do not receive any income from it. This conflict amongst athletes has been around since the 1980’s and continues to be of issue to most college athletes today. Supporters say that college athletes are the one’s out their making all the money for all the coaches and universities and it is unfair that the player’s do not receive any of the income; whereas, non-supporters say that college athletes get their stay at the colleges paid for along with many other privileges that normal college students do not receive, therefore, there is no unfairness.
Because our coach was picking his own friends at the game time, there is no chance for new players and the selection of the team players was corrupted. The coach listed the best eleven players for the game. Amazingly, my name was not on the team with the best eleven players list. I was shocked, furthermore I forced to sit on the bench .I
It’s the end of the game, my team is down one, there are eight seconds and counting on the clock and the ball is in my hands. I search the stands to find the one person who has been there for me my entire life. Only he’s not there. It’s easy to get caught up in the game; not the game of basketball, but the dope game. It is a life few choose, but many find themselves in due to the harsh reality of job loss and depression.
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...
Louis offers the opportunity to build a state-of-the-art stadium in place of the Edward Jones Dome, there is no reason why the Rams should be chosen as a team to move to Los Angeles. Stan Kroenke, sports mogul and current owner of the St. Louis Rams, has pitched a self-financed, two billion dollar stadium in Inglewood, CA to be the new site of a Los Angeles Rams franchise (Brandt, 2015). In contrast, Kroenke has made no such offer to the city of St. Louis. The Edward Jones Dome is known as one of the NFL’s worst facilities, despite the fact that it is only twenty years old. However, in contrast to San Diego and Oakland, the city of St. Louis has shown its strong desire and commitment to keep the franchise by pitching a one billion dollar stadium to keep ahold of the Rams.
When Alabama won the 2016 national championship I read a story about how much money the coaches received for winning and the players, well they received shirts and hats. As noted in the readings, many athletes don’t receive a full ride nor every athlete receive an athletic scholarship. I believe if an athlete is a part of an athletic program then they should have everything paid for in terms of room and board, tuition, meal plan, books and even extra money for transportation, hygiene, and entertainment. No player who works for an athletic program averaging 30 hours a week should have student loan debt. 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 give forty hours a week just to the sport they play. As a result, graduation rates have gone down to an all time low, and some athletes don’t even go to college for an education. Former Iowa State head football coach Jim Walden said, "Not more than 20% of the football players go to college for an education" (qtd. in Eitzen). The NCAA defends the right to its
Alec Michaud Mr. Bergmann Sophomore Honors English II P6 10 October 2016 Lambeau Field, a Mark on History The ground below is rattling to the thunderous beat of rambunctious spectators with the anticipation of the battle that is set to be fought on this very field! The senseless chaos ceases as a loud roar erupts from the stands as the Green Bay Packers emerge from the tunnel. “With 13 super bowl rings and 53 postseason appearances it’s easy to say that Green Bay is one of the most dominant teams in the NFL” (Packers team Records). The iconic team has many notable attributes that set them apart, but one of the most recognizable is there historic stadium, Lambeau Field.
Many restaraunts attempt to be the new hot spot for everyone to gather up at, but not many restaurants can pull this off. There are many reasons people would gather up together to eat, but one of the biggest reasons people come together and eat is for sporting events. Buffalo Wild Wings accomplishes being the place to be for sporting events by giving off an energetic, welcoming, and sports focused ambiance. Buffalo Wild Wings accomplishes these ambiances even if a major sports game is not being played. This has helped them become a successful business and has spread their restaurants nationwide.
