In the article, Point: College Athletes Should Be Paid for Their Participation, “While not all Division I schools report a profit from their athletics departments, college sports are a multibillion-dollar industry. The revenue generated by college athletics benefits schools, administrators, coaches, vendors, local communities, and television networks.” The big-time athletes become the face of the athletic department. The NCAA uses athletes as a selling point. The athletes are what generate money for the association, so why can’t the athletes get a cut of their work? Of course, there is a conflicting side to every point; although, the NCAA produces billions of dollars every year, how do athletes expect to get their education, travel, and perks paid
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. “More money, more problems” by The Notorious B.I.G is seemingly fitting in this exact situation. Amateurism took its role in the early 1900s when the NCAA was formed to protect student-athletes from the potentially dangerous and exploitive athletic practices during that time in history (NCAA, 1906). The first intercollegiate football contest between Rutgers and its’ close neighbor
While other students are working part time, college athletes are working hard in court, in the field or in the rink, without earning even a single dollar. So getting paid, even a little extra, would go a long way to helping them pay for all their needs. This would also make a huge difference for students from families with low income.”(NYBorg) The payment of college football athletes is highly debated because it benefits certain people a lot more than others. Even a statement from a former athlete shows how he thinks athletes should be paid just due to the fact of the money being made off of the game itself, “You go to Chapel Hill and try to go to a Carolina-Duke game, good luck trying to find a ticket. It’s nationally televised.
Immigrants and poor works worked together to increase the wages. The rich wanted to ensure in maintaining their power and wealth, leaving the others in terrible circumstances. “The purpose of the state was to settle upper-class disputes peacefully,control lower-class rebellion, and adopt policies that would further the long-range stability of the system”(Zinn, 238). Always, the wealthy and powerful have control the lower class, creating discriminatory laws. These laws that have been created is beneficial to the rich.
College is a place for students to obtain a college degree and help them to get ahead on their “real world” careers. Athletic departments in college have become huge money incomes in the past ten years; college football and basketball are even shown on the television. This has resulted in many believing these athletes deserve to be paid for their contribution to the schools athletic income. However athletes in college are given the opportunity to play the sport that they love as well as receive a top education. For some players a $20,000+ per year tuition is not enough, they want to be paid with more than just a scholarship.
These athletes are far from amateurs they can compete with world class athletes. At the end of the year a few college athletes get invited to the Olympics’ for their sport so if they're the best in the world there is no way they are amateurs. Amateur’s also don't put in up to 40 hours a week. Most students who have jobs don't put that many hours into their job and they're getting paid (college athletes deserve). Calling college athletes amateur's is just a way the NCAA can get by without compensating their student
Not all athletes receive full rides or any scholarships at all yet, they still spend as much time and put as much effort into the sport just as someone who has had one received. The NCAA league makes a reportedly $11+ billion a year. None of which goes to any athlete. Paying the athlete could make the sport more competitive and appealing to one 's eye. If it becomes more popular it’ll bring in more revenue which is what they are trying to do.
There is a controversy of whether college athletes should get paid or not? Some say that many people make money off of them by selling jerseys, doing ads, and etc. So they should at least make some money for other people using them. On the other hand, people say that they already have a full ride scholarship why do they need to get paid or what if smaller schools can’t pay them? College athletes should get paid because people make money off them, some sport careers don 't last long, and getting payed large amount of money teaches financial responsibility.
I believe this is true and it has shown in the current company I work for, which has employees and clients all over the world. We are able to reach a larger clientele by being a company which encourages multiplicity. More specifically within my department, we work with an outsource team from a foreign country. We are able to incorporate another facet of experience in working with them and with other clients from around the world. Experience as a Student with Diversity As a college student, I have realized the many different
There is a lot of work and sacrifice behind all this which makes it a fascinating sport to play it and watch it. In conclusion, there is no doubt that soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world, even though United States gives it less importance. This game is played with a lot of passion due to the fact that everyone can win or lose regardless of the situation, it requires a great amount of strategy to score and win games, and there are millions of dribbles that can be done with only a round ball that will amaze the fans. People who have ever played it and give credit of
