In this article, It mainly focuses on the "money" aspect of the college, pretty much the ins and outs a tuition, fees etc. The author states, "In its most recent survey of college pricing, the College Board reports that a moderate college budget for an in-state public college for the 2017–2018 academic year averaged $25,290. A moderate budget at a private college averaged $50,900.." This shows the pricing for college for ONE YEAR. The overwhelming price of this shows how athletes will be overwhelmed with priorities and trying to pay THAT? Including all the fees that a scholarship will not support is a travesty. Athletes should be paid not an extortionate price but a price that will help them pay off there college fees .
In this article, Dave Anderson explains his reasoning as to why players should get paid by using a list format. He brings up some valid reasons as to why these athletes should be paid. One of these reasons is because the NCAA are gaining profit from the team's success and the player's reputation in the college world, yet the athletes don't get paid a single penny for this. This quote by Mr. Anderson sums it up perfectly "When universities sell jerseys and t-shirts with popular numbers on them, they are literally selling the personhood of the person whose number is on the jersey." What this means is that when universities are selling merchandise they are taking the player and just using there name to gain money. ***Anderson, Dave. “Top 10 Reasons College Athletes Should Be Paid.” Top 10 Lists | ListLand.com, 9 July 2016, www.listland.com/top-10-reasons-college-athletes-should-be-paid/.
In this article, Horace Mitchell argues that College Athletes should not be paid, he explains that College Athletes should not be getting paid money due to the fact that there not "professional athletes." He also states in the article that, " Collegiate sports is not a career or profession. It is the students' vehicle to a higher education degree." Which is true in a sense, but what about all the hidden fees and expenses that college throws at you plus the fact that you can't get a full time job because of the sport you play. Without the money the athlete not only isn't able to play sports but will risk of dropping out because he can;t financially support themselves. *** Mitchell, Horace. “Students Are Not Professional Athletes.” U.S. News & World Report, U.S. News & World Report, 6 Jan. 2014, www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2014/01/06/ncaa-athletes-should-not-be-paid..
In this article, by Tyson Hartnett, he talks about the hardships student athletes face on a day-to-day basis. As claimed by Mr. Hartnett, "On a typical day, a player will wake up before classes, get a lift or conditioning session in, go to class until 3 or 4 p.m., go to practice, go to mandatory study hall, and then finish homework or study for a test." This then leads to his call to action on why he in favor for student athletes to be paid. He states, "I’m not saying we should be paying athletes $5,000 or even $10,000 per semester. If each athlete got $2,000 paid over the course of the semester, this would give them some spending cash and an opportunity to start managing their money." This is why collegiate athletes should be paid, obviously not as high as professional athlete would, but a couple grand would help them out in paying for there rent since when they go into season they are unable to get a job since they have games to play. ***Hartnett, Tyson. “Why College Athletes Should Be Paid.” The Huffington Post, TheHuffingtonPost.com, 23 Jan. 2014, www.huffingtonpost.com/tyson-hartnett/college-athletes-should-be-paid_b_4133847.html.
