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?
“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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
NCAA athletes took the NCAA to court. Ed O’Bannon, a former NCAA athlete, led the charge for the student athletes. O’Bannon argued that the athletes are being taken advantage of because the schools make millions off of the players’ likeness, meaning the schools make money on selling a jersey, or bobble head of the players and the players deserve some of that money and it should be put into a trust fund for the player. Judge Claudia Wilkin decided the O’Bannon case and gave the athletes everything they wanted in 2014, but in a court of repeals the ruling was reversed and the college just had to pay for the full cost of attendance at the university and did not have to pay for the trust of each athlete (Nocera). This was a small step for college
The Grand Debate The grand debate of whether to pay college athletes continues today. Yet, today there are so many other amenities provided to the athletes that they are practically paid through those. College coaches receive sky high salaries, the booster clubs donate millions of dollars to the university 's athletic program but those who are actually performing and competing do not get paid.
The reason why they don’t pay athletes with this money is because they use this money to better the student’s college experience. With the money they are making the college the college can buy them a new field or new court to play on. If you look at all the successful schools their campuses and athletic areas have all the schools earnings put into them. It is not a surprise and is known that Colleges have the money to pay athletes but that is not the problem. The problem is the lawsuits that are holding the NCAA back from doing so
Have you ever wondered if a college athlete should or shouldn’t get paid? Well the truth is that, the athletes don’t see their fair share even if they’re one of the best players on the team. Many believe that scholarships cover the fact that college athletes don’t get paid.
Paying college athletes is something most athletes would enjoy, and most don 't realize how valuable they are to these universities. The NCAA has growing into a multi billion dollar industry. Athletes cannot, however receive any cut from their jersey sales,ticket sales nor the $10.8 billion broadcast deal NCAA just signed. No wonder why there such a big argument going on whether student athletes should get paid. At least they receive something which is an athletic scholarship, that covers their room and board ,tuition and fees, and books.
