Hundreds or even thousands of employees to keep the business running smoothly; The NFL, is not different. “Each NFL team is allowed to have 53 players on its roster (plus a five-player practice squad). As of 2011, the NFL has 32 teams, making a total of 1,696 players.” These men are just trying to make a living entertaining millions in one of the most popular sports in The United States of
But how much do the top NCAA executives make? The top NCAA executives make about $1 million per year. Who else makes money off these near professional level athletes? First, many coaches earn at least $100,000 per year to coach one of the major sports like baseball, basketball, or football at a school. These coaches will receive bonuses for getting to the playoffs, winning championships, or breaking school records, but what do the athletes receive as a bonus?
For example, in an article from Huffingtonpost.com, it said parents in the US, spend about six hundred seventy one dollars on average to cover uniforms, coaching, and registration fees (“High Cost of Youth Sports” 2). That shows that they are harmful, because parents are spending a lot of money just for their kid to play one sport. They could be saving their money for their children’s college or something else that will benefit their future. Another example is in the same article, it said, “More than 2 in 10 (21%) spend $1,000 or more every year for sports per child”(“High Cost of Youth Sports” 1).That shows that the cost of competitive sports is harmful because parents are spending a lot of money per year. So, if the kid keeps playing the sport every year until college, that can end up being a lot more money than just for them playing it once.
With this book you can solve all of the problems associated with dogs and dog training. You will learn not only how to communicate with your dog but why so many attempts at dog training fail. You may be surprised to hear that dog training is not difficult although quite a lot of people would like you to think so. You will have noticed that the title of the book mentions lack of stress – almost. I believe there will always be a little stress, not for the dog but for the human part of
Can we make this sport safe without ruining the thrill? Solving this problem involves not only educating the public, but also eliminating head-first tackles and providing better equipment. Undoubtedly, football is a difficult, treacherous sport but currently no measures are being taken to improve players’ safety. Small things could make a big difference in the NFL. People are getting hurt before our very eyes, and we don’t do a thing about it, we should be appalled our lack of action and let it motivate us to make improvements and needed
College athletes train everyday and most of the time more than once a day as well and on top of game days. Certain sports even work more hours than a full time job. “ The typical Division I college football player devotes 43.3 hours per week to his sport -- 3.3 more hours than the typical American work week” (Edelman). This meaning that college athletes do not have time for outside jobs or even homework for their classes. They may have a scholarship that helps them out tremendously but if they do not have time for a job, they are not going to have enough money for any food or activities.
In conclusion, college athletes should be paid because they bring in a ton of revenue for their schools while risking injury and yet are unable to afford the cost of living. The time that is put into the sport is the equivalent, if not more, than the time that is put into a full time job. Only thirty-three percent of students receive scholarships, most of them partial. Also, only one percent of all college athletes will play professional sports after their college tenure is served. The NCAA and Division One Colleges generate profits that do not trickle down to the athletes.
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.
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.
Being a NCAA Division II athlete during my time at American International College was blessing in disguise for me. Many people do not look at Division II college athletes in the same light as Division I athletes. Interestingly enough, unlike Division III college athletes, DII are held to the same standards and rules as Division I. We have to maintain a certain GPA, we cannot work more than 10 hours a week, we are drug tested on a monthly basis, and we endure two-a-days on a daily basis. Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed.
“The irony is that, while sports events generate millions for each school, the workers are not paid” (Eitzen). 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).
Similar to today, the attempt to censor formats of media arises from organised pressure groups, these usually determine what is accessible to children; whether through films/television or today’s internet. Faber could never overcome the conformity and society’s standards when books were originally banned, he feared what others would think of him or what the government may do to I 'm for causing a disturbance in the peace they wished to achieve. Gattaca’s society constant relay of fear following conformity standards as to what is next for their world. Whether genetic modification advances further and current upper class citizens are alienated or an uprising will begin from the “god-children” born naturally rather than created in a laboratory. During the period Fahrenheit 451 was drafted, Bradbury observed the overwriting of books from the creation of conventional television, the competition between the
