Two, these student athletes put in lots of work and even sometimes have to miss class to go to the sports event. They have to put in work on and off the field of court. Three, the coaches and everybody else but the players are paid. These kids take time from their school work and personal things to get things done for their sports team and don’t get anything in return. “Nick Saban will make $11 million in the year of 2018 coaching the football team of Alabama University.” (www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/6778847/college-athletes-deserve-paid.)
Even though I lost I knew I had gotten into his head mentally because I didn’t see him since he ran into the locker room mad because I had embarrassed him and since he knew he was very lucky to get the win. Since I knew I had one or two more chance to wrestle Nerine in the state tournament in two weeks I felt I had brought him down a little bit mentally which I could use to my
In the same article Brian Frederick said “ Fans must understand that college sports is a big business”, and this is very true, but the reason it is such a big business is because of the athletes. If you take away the athletes from college sports you take away college sports and a multitude of money. “Players at top-tier schools such as Duke are worth up to $1 million each.” With a staggering number such as a worth of one million dollars each it is truly mind boggling that athletes do not get any type of
Are High School Sports Dying? It’s the Friday night lights, the thrill of running out of the tunnel, the loud warm up music, the crowd yelling to support you, that every high school athlete looks forward to. Winning the rival game, going head to head against friends from other schools, creating memories that will last a lifetime, those crazy bus rides and the long ones home after a tough lost. You play because you love the game but others play for the social aspect. Lately, it hasn't been about the players so much anymore it's been about your last name, who your parents are and how much money your parents are willing to donate to the program in order for you to get that starting position or more playing time.

Resigning as governor from Tennessee and ending his campaign for reelection after his separation to Eliza Allen was a mistake that marked his political career. Another mistake that was made by Sam Houston was accepting the duel with General William White as it created a bad reputation to his candidacy. Regardless, his list of accomplishments where many including his success in the military were his ranking escalated drastically from soldier to sergeant later as third lieutenant, first lieutenant and lastly as colonel. Serving in the House of Representative was an accomplishment that helped him by letting his name known to important political members that later will back up his candidacy. Furthermore, his biggest accomplishment was being named President of
If we look at most of our opinion when it comes to voting comes from the band wagon affect these days. Media often sways people’s perception on the candidate. I believe that voting doesn’t do us any good when it comes to electing the President of the United States of America or anyone elected to State Represenitive, Governor, or state local official. No matter who get the most popular vote or majority of the votes, the Electoral College always wins. To me this makes voting it senseless to me since the candidate that the American people have voted for will not get elected because of the Electoral College.
Barry Levinson’s 1997 film, Wag The Dog, demonstrates to what length the government will go to in order to be reelected, even if it means war, through mockery. This film does not hold back when it comes to ridiculing key figures and groups. The director expresses his view by using a representative of the president, a Hollywood producer and a spin doctor to expose the tactics used by governments, and influential organisations. Levinson targets especially the government and mocks the steps members of the government are willing to take to win an election. In addition, the media is gone because it is contaminated easily as Wellers Hollywood's extravagant ways.
Through donations, ticket sales, media rights, advertising, and anything else with a price tag, these athletes are symbols for their school and their program. If a school makes a huge scientific achievement, they will be in the newspaper for a few days, but athletic teams are in the newspaper the entire year. No one is saying athletes should be paid $5,000 or $10,000 per semester, but what if each athlete got $2,000 over the course of the semester. Doing this would give them some spending money. Most athletic programs can 't afford to pay athletes on their own, so the NCAA and their executives need to figure out a way to start rewarding athletes
The main criticism that “the current two-party system gives too much power to the extremists in each party” (Wheelan, 2013, para. 2). When people are chosen by the party to run, in many cases they represent the extremist views held and become the mascot for the party. The current system is skewed so moderates, the people some say are essential to politics, are not chosen because they do not represent the party strongly enough. These extremist candidates help to discourage education of the intricacies of individual issues because voters are forced into accepting how the party views the issue, due to either voting due to the candidate 's party affiliation, or being forced into choosing the extremist that comes closest to their own personal beliefs.
