I personlly think NCAA athletes should get paid, because they put a lot on the line to play college ball. Yea they might get paid in free education but you got to look on the other side how are they to support they self for personal needs like tooth paste, cloths, shoes, soap, and many more. What about the ones that go out of there home state and play. Their family many miles away so they can’t get to much support from them.
More than four hundred and sixty thousand students are working for free. According to the NCAA the number of student-athletes is steadily growing. These students represent their school when they compete in their respective sport. Although all NCAA student-athletes should be paid, the football and basketball programs bring in the most revenue therefore these two sports will be the main focus of this argument. In addition, not only do these particular student athletes bring in revenue for their school, but they also bring in revenue for shoe companies, shoe companies and the conference in which their team is in (Meshefejian).
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.
There is still so much for me to learn in the area of event management, interviewing Seth was invaluable. I hope to continue to develop a relationship with him and soak in all of his knowledge and experience in the field. Seth told me that at the end of his career he wants to be able to say that he never cheated or sold out, that he was always in it for the student athletes and coaches, not for just a paycheck. I would like to say some of the same things about my
As we all know, college can be very expensive. With the scholarships and grants, college student-athletes can go to school for free and get their day-to-day needs such as food, housing, clothes, etc. Ackerman and Scotts, purpose is to show that college is a learning experience and with the help of college sports, the student-athletes will have a chance to grow and be successful in life rather than being exploited. However, critics believe that college student-athletes should be paid salary, like professional athletes, because they want people to see the “athletes are the rule, not the expectation” (par 11). They want the audience to think that it’s a rule for student-athletes to go play pro after two years, will no expectation.
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.
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.
This is because the athletes that come to the university are now a walking advertisement. If a school sends many multiple people pro in sports every year then they will be more likely to land the big name recruits and therefore the school will make money off of that player helping his team to a championship. These are all reasons why college athletes should be paid. To conclude, college athletes deserve more. Yes they are given scholarships, yes they are given an opportunity to change their situation and their future.
For a lot of student athletes sports are the only thing that they rely on as an opportunity to make a better life for themselves. Many student athletes come from poor families that have a low graduation rate. As they grow up, they realize the outstanding athletic gifts they have and use their potential to get noticed by colleges, thus receiving a scholarship. Jabrill Peppers is one of the best players in college football, he was nominated for the heisman trophy this year. What a lot of people don't know is that he grew up in a harmful environment, always waking up in the morning having the thought of if he was going to live to see tomorrow.
Unfortunately, my current Ithaca College transcript is quite different and I am not proud of the grades but they surely motivates me to give my all when I am provided with another opportunity. This suspension has affected me deeply it made realize that soccer, family and school is the most important to me. I am very passionate about soccer, it excites me. I plan to tryout for the team and hopefully become a member of the team, it will keep me busy and motivate me to do well on the field and in the classroom. Since I have been home for almost a year now I have become closer with my family especially my father, he has now become a big asset for me.
There has been major discussion recently if college athletes should or shouldn 't be paid while they are in school. Some people say that they are already getting a scholarship which is more than anybody else, therefore they believe it is considered being greedy. Let 's not be greedy and look at how much a scholarship is actually worth. In college most athletes don 't last at a school for the whole four years.
I believe that every day is training day. As a high school athlete, sports are a way of relieving the stress of everything that is going on in my life. For me, that stress is relieved is when I step out on a soccer field with my team and we play to our best capability for 80 minutes. Any athlete knows that in order to become a great and dedicated athlete you have to put in the work and be passionate about what you do. When I was an eighth grader going to be freshman I thought I knew this already, as I did play soccer every year since I was five (I was fourteen at the time.)
