Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world. Even some of the best athletes ever careers get cut short. One example of this is Bo Jackson. He very well might have been the greatest athlete of all time, but his career was cut shorts because he got injured. So if you ever want to be like Bo Jackson and play with the professionals, just make sure you have a backup plan like an
My main point on that question could be that these average students are not put on display on a daily basis, these athletes or put on television or the radio, and they make the NCAA and their respected schools money every time they pay the game. They deserve to see some of that profit, they are the reason that these school are making money, but they will never see any of
Therefor, high school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all of the players on the team because it is an unfair practice and stunts the growth of the more successful players. To begin with, a coach should not be required to equally split up playing time among the players because it shields the ability level of each individual athlete, making it extremely unfair to the hardest-working, most-talented players. After all, “Coaches don’t decide playing time; players do” (Bowen). Fred Bowen has coached high school sports for over 30 years and has said this to the parents of every player he has ever had before the season starts. By regarding the issue of playing time outwardly and honestly, he has managed to avoid the issue before it turned into a problem.
Peter Grey stated that "We have raised a generation of young people who have not been given the opportunity to...experience failure and realize they can survive it." It doesn’t matter if a child is on the winning team or the losing team, everybody gets the exact same participation trophy because everybody’s kid is perfect. If children don’t learn what failure feels like before they are on their own, then it will be ten times harder to bounce back from, and they will literally think it is the end of the world; they won’t know how to handle
Free College Tuition From Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders believes that college tuition isn’t in the interest for our country’s future. Bernie Sanders states “It is insane and counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college” (Bernie). Bernie Sanders’ point is that many of the talented people in our society may not be able to pursue their dreams or pursue their desired job because they and their parents can’t afford college. If Bernie Sanders is right that many Americans can’t afford to go to college, as I think they are, then we need to reassess the popular belief that FAFSA and other scholarships will considerably lower the price for college.
In the first one, there is not enough humanity left in people, they are crippled and negatively influenced so heavily and from very young age, that ther is no place for salvation for them. Although, there is still hope for the world where for someone to be born, someone else needs to die. Enough people who rediscover in themselves feelings, who decide to fight, not to die, as per governments rule, and the society may be rebuilt once again, on the basis of the family being the most important, but also the strongest unit of the society. Once Vonnegut asked “what should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously.
Did you know that 3.5 million children get injured each year by playing competitive sports? There has been a long disagreement about whether or not kids should be playing competitive sports, but I believe that kids should not play competitive sports. People that agree with kids playing competitive sports might argue that it is good because it helps/prevents obesity, helps kids make friends and gives them more time to hang out with friends, and help them in life. I do agree with those reasons, but I argue that kids should not play competitive sports because of injuries, stress, and overuse/burnout. One reason that children should not play competitive sports, is that it can cause many injuries that can even be fatal.
All professional sports leagues in the U.S. will at some point in their season launch a promotional event to speak out and stop racism in their sport and in general. One final issue facing sports is providing an equal opportunity to all children to play whatever sport they desire regardless of their family’s income. The privatization of youth sports has made it very difficult for children of lower income families to play sports because they must now pay to be a part of a club or league in addition to the already high and continually rising prices of athletic equipment. As a child, I do not think that I understood things such as race and social class to the extent that I do now. I grew up playing sports with children of different race and social status, but that was never something that I paid attention to because in my eyes, we were all there for the same reason which was to have fun and enjoy whatever sport we were playing.
Whereas, the rich child plans to mooch off their parents, don’t go to college, and don’t get good grades in school. This goes back to the statement, “Children take on their parent personalities.” Depending on how the person's principles are set up will determine if they imitate those traits. The person who parents were actually successful thinks it's okay to just slack off because their parents have money; meaning his morals are unsubstantial and he don’t want to take on his parent’s legacy. But, the person who parents didn’t do well in life is trying to excel and be finer than his/her parents because he/she morals are
If they let some girls play on boy teams then maybe we could have a better country because people are understanding how different people can get along just fine. I think children when children are young they are thought to play together but on the other hand, when we get older we try to ban this activity. I can see why people wouldn’t want girls and boys on the same team because a lot of boys and men are getting hurt from them playing sports and when it comes for a first girl to be on an all-boys team the nation gets all quiet because they don’t want to take a risk and play. I think that some girls are fit enough to play an all boy sport, but the thing that is holding us down is when we have all these all-girl schools and when we have all boy schools. They show kids that they should play with the other gender and they should not learn to be the first when it comes to doing something with the other gender.
Now for the reasons why you shouldn’t pay players there also a lot of reasons. 1st players have never been paid and they were still supporting themselves. (barley) Also college is meant to show kids the responsibilities of the world. It also shows them how to juggle a lot of things life grade and a job and in the real world it would be a job and kids. But then the parents not wanting their kids to play because of injuries and, why would you pay kids if they 're most likely to get hurt.
First, scholarships aren’t being benefited from due to the lack of time the athlete has. Second, student-athletes often end up with low paying jobs, so a pay rate in college could help them out after finishing school. Third, college sports have profited millions of dollars off of these student-athletes and they only receive a scholarship. Make it or break it, one former athlete works a minimum wage job, while a rookie in the professional league is making millions. The lesson learned is that college athletes are being exploited.
Public schools across the nation are wasting their money on equipment and better facilities, but they are forgetting what matters the most which is each students education. In the Documentary Stupid in America, they said that a lot of schools spend a lot of money a professional pools, and well equipped gyms, but all of the extra money sent to the public schools did not help improve test scores (Stupid in America). They also stated that small charters schools do not have gyms, pools, even, buildings, but they are still able to outperform student attending other public educations (Stupid in America. Schools are not doing enough not maximize their funds on just the children 's education and not hobbies or sports. There are many public schools that
College Athletes Compensation How would you feel if you were to perform and work as hard as you could but have all of the money that results from your hard work go to someone else, and you get none of it? Division I college athletes not being compensated for their efforts is a major problem. Universities and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) profit around $6 billion annually off of college athletes; meanwhile these athletes do not see any of this money and may even go to bed hungry. These student athletes put their bodies and health on the line when they step out for their sports and often have to pay a lifetime of medical bills, and do not get any help with this. When trying to provide for themselves, students are
If the players or team aren’t very talented then tickets won’t sell, jerseys won’t sell and college won’t be supported, therefore making less money. However, if the team is very exceptional then the opposite occurs the college receives a glorious payday every weekend. Many others agree that college players should be paid as well. In a survey conducted at Hillsborough Middle School, in Pod 7/8c, 14 out of 20 students believe that college athletes should be paid. The other 30% of students believe that college athletes shouldn’t be paid only because of their age, only being in highschool and because they haven’t made it big.
