The Greatest arguement in College Sports Why not to Pay College Athletes

Sports arenas are of great significance to a university and give an image of an athletic department to the world.

It is through these arenas that universities entice prospective athletes to sign with their school. These complexes show what these players could become in the future.

Colleges are constantly renovating and building athletic arenas. New bigger and state-of-the art sports stadiums are one of the minimum standards for universities in order for them to remain prominent in the college sports scene.
New sports stadiums represent the bulk of spending for universities. Much time and money is needed for a college to make newly redone or built stadiums.

Very few athletic departments actually make a profit during a sports season. Universities must pay coaching staff and for sports equipment that is immediately necessary before creating stadiums. Many sports programs rely on outside sources to pay for projects like sports stadiums.

Because most athletic departments are tight in finances, college athletes should not be paid so that sports departments can pay for stadiums and other requirements needed in order for the university to remain competitive in the college sports scene.
