College Athletes By: Brett and Braden

"Here's Why We Shouldn't Pay College Athletes." Time. Time, n.d. Web. 20 Dec. 2016

Yankah, Ekow N. "Why N.C.A.A. Athletes Shouldn’t Be Paid." The New Yorker. N.p., 14 Oct. 2015. Web. 20 Dec. 2016.

Some say, athletes are already getting paid with an education. Common students are at a disadvantage. Athletes do not have to pay a dime after college; common students have to take thousands of dollars in loans to pay off college. Some athletes even get board and food paid for. Common students have to pay for everything, including books. Common students leave college thousands of dollars in debt, while most college athletes leave without debt. The Division I student athletes even get exposed to professional leagues which become many of their careers. Common students usually spend a lot of time looking for a job after college.

Some former college coaches have been interviewed and one coach said, “cheating isn’t only accepted, it’s expected.” Another coach said that trying to coach college football is a, “dysfunctional hell”. A coach also said, “A man’s word only holds as much weight as his wallet.” College sports have already been corrupt for a long time. We take away their amature title and who knows how much money they will start making illegally.
