The athletic department gets paid million of dollars every year, therefore it should not be a problem with NCAA paying the athletes. The average coaching salary in NCAA division 1 basketball is 1.47 million per year, if the coach can make that much by teaching them then the athlete should make twice as more by learning it and performing at several games during the season. The athletes who practice for along time and dedicate their lives to the game get nothing, but a doubt of a win. Division one athletes should be paid because they have a significant amount of revenue for the school. The majority of the football players will have at least one concussion during their four years of college.
"I know a woman who worked two full-time jobs so her child could compete with a traveling team," said Jamieson, whose research interests include sports violence. ‘When your life revolves around the sport and competition, the stress and frustration can manifest itself in the player and parents” (IU Newsroom). This can cause more stress on the child than what they need. The athlete knows that their parent is working more and paying extra for them to succeed which can put too much pressure on them. The kids should not have to deal with all the extra stress and pressure that is pushed onto them.
Most importantly, people are working harder than a pro athlete and they still make more. According to Chris Mueller in the article titled, “Two Sides to Every Coin, Professional Athletes Overpaid?” his dad had worked super hard but made less then Peyton Manning did in one year, then he did in his lifetime! Some people would say that they need that money for an expensive medical bill but, athletes could learn to be frugal like us and save their extra money so that they don’t have to be paid so much. Another
Still, for all that work that they put into baseball, sixty to seventy hours a week, you would think that all of this would pay off a livable wage for a 19 or 20-year-old who has to pay for the household, food, and potential families. Minor league baseball players do not make enough to have a livable wage despite the number of hours that they put into their sports. Minor league baseball player train and practice for a long hour and non-stop for 60 to 70 hours a week and only get paid 1,100 to 2,150 a month per player. Critics may argue that they would have an opportunity to get into the major league from the minor league, but the chance of getting into the major league and how long it might take is too small to consider. The chance of getting
Motivation is an important thing in our life. without motivation no one can live because it helps anyone to achieve his goals for example if a person in the school or college study to get a good mark in the exam so if his parent motivates him he will spend more hours to study to the exam and he will not only get a good mark but he will get a full mark. So motivation help everyone to study or work hard to achieve his goal. Motivation is the characteristic that helps to achieve the goals of a person and it is the energy that keep everyone going even when they fall. There are many theories for motivation there is two that is good to talk about it.
“Cristiano Ronaldo makes $56 million a year, Kobe Bryant made $250 million a year and Barack Obama made $400,000 a year during his presidency...” (O'Connor ). Professional athletes are paid millions of dollars to play a game while police officers, firefighters, army soldiers, and even the president are paid significantly less. “It’s not shocking that public servants like teachers and police officers make less than professional athletes”(Figueroa). Compensation shouldn't be about entertainment, it should be about job importance because people are trying to make the world a better and safer place not a more entertaining place. The jobs that are harder and have a better effect on society are valued way less than being a professional athlete.
There could be controversy over the athlete's contract with the amount they are getting paid. Also, the kids that do not play sports might feel they are being treated unfairly because they do not get paid. College athletes get offered a full ride to a big ten college for free: “other kids have to get loans worth tons of money that they will have to pay back for the rest of their lives” (Bagaria and Birkenes). Paying these athletes would cause too many problems that the university doesn’t have time to deal with. College is a place that people decide to go to because they enjoy everything the campus has to offer and to get a degree.
Did you know that firefighters could work for up to forty-eight hour shifts plus hey visit scenes of trauma and horrific accidents causing some of them to suffer from emotional exhaustion while their salaries are insignificantly low, On the other hand compared to musicians and actors footballers get paid a significant amount less, but how come no one seems to be on their case? The reason for this is simply because football is a national sport and people choose to pick on this. It’s a statistical fact that Robert Downing JR got paid 35 million dollars for the movie “Avengers” but people choose to ignore this. The better the team means the higher the salary, which is unjust because skilled players might be working exceptionally hard and it just does not occur that they get an offer from a renowned club in addition to that there are reserve players who still get paid high salaries even though they are not putting in any effort. To conclude, Footballers deserve money.
This happens more than the government of Japan cares to admit. This occurs when Japanese people turn 20 and start looking at big companies at which they can work at and earn a good amount of money. However when the employees are in their late 50’s and don’t become experts in anything new, companies already start to look for people to replace them, as they turn 60 employees get a reduced salary and face retirement with no money. But the average japanese person might still have 30 years left to live, which they do not have enough money to just be sitting around doing nothing, especially in the city of Tokyo. In result, japanese people never stop learning and trying to specialize in new things which means they overwork their bodies till a point of no return.
