The reasons being, most professional athletes don’t play longer than 3-5 years during their career. That’s a very long retirement and what if you get hurt, it will be very hard to live 50 years in retirement on a 3-year career. Next, it’s not fair to others who aren’t born athletes and have to concentrate hard on their grades to get into a good college. If athletes don’t work hard on their grades, they are just wasting talent. 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.

If you ask a former player, even some who have suffered through a number of injuries, you’ll hear them speak with affection and praise about their time spent on the gridiron and with their teammates.
Amateurism in college athletics is an exploitation of the athletes who participate in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports. The amount of work that is done by these athletes to help their respective institutions generate millions of dollars in revenue, goes seemingly unnoticed when identifying the substantial amount of money flow in NCAA sports and the amount of people, from stakeholders to alumni, that benefit from this source. Amateurism, the foundation of NCAA sports, has been in place for over a century of time dating back to the early 1900s. Any athlete who is making money for work they’ve done outside of their institution is not being exploited, however, an athlete can easily be placed on the other end of the spectrum when he or she is withheld from recognizing the true monetary value of their talents and likeness that are being used for the profit of the school or others. The NCAA is understandably satisfied with the continuous growth of its’ revenue each year, yet the problem they face of having people accept that “student-athletes” are just amateurs is growing as well.

Hiring the right scout can be the difference in bringing in the next Tom Brady or messing up and drafting the next Ryan Leaf. Scouts are helped by the league because of the annual NFL scouting combine that is held each year to measure the capabilities of all the young recruits waiting to hear their name be called on draft day.
