Do you know how much money a D1 football team brings in? It’s important to know because college athletes aren’t getting paid while putting their bodies at risk and also failing because of their training. Then they can’t play in the games because they have a low GPA. That’s why this is important. A problem in my topic is that college players don’t get paid at all while playing and putting their bodies at risk. The NCAA needs to change the rules so that players get paid.
A reason why I think this is important is because they are putting their bodies at risk while receiving no payment. Some evidence is that paying student athletes turns them into professionals and sullies the purity of amateur athletic competition. Student athletes are students first and foremost attending college primarily to receive an education and secondarily to compete in their sport.
College athletes spend a lot of time training for the games and they risk their bodies. They can get seriously injured which is why they should get some payment by helping lead their team to victory. Paying college athletes is a good idea because they invest the same time and effort as most American workers. To support their families, players would be able to actually afford a decent meal and possibly send some money back home.
People say they’ll be irresponsible with the money if they get paid. Student athletes generate serious revenue and paying college athletes would help begin creating a sense of financial awareness. You’re wrong if you think that college football players shouldn’t get paid because they’re putting their life on the line because it’s their dream to inspire others and also to take care of their family members. They can’t do that if they’re not getting paid for their work. I agree that college football players should get paid because they work a little harder than other American workers. College players are putting their life on the line to inspire people by working hard and showing improvement.
My claim again is that college players should get paid while playing and putting their bodies at risk. The NCAA needs to change the rules so that players can get paid. I think it’s important because they are putting their bodies at risk while receiving no payment. My second reason is college athletes spend a lot of time training for the games and they are at risk. Their bodies can get seriously injured which is why they should get payment for helping lead the team to victory.
