Should college players get paid?
Absolutely, Yes! Please, don't give me that tired and old excuse about free education. Example Florida Gulf Coast University Basketball Team takes the March Madness Tournament and the Nation by storm, puts the University on the map, and makes their Coach Andy Enfield rich, but all those kids are just going be left with just bragging rights and stories to tell friends. Not Fair!
I think they should be paid. Not on the same pay scale as the pros but they should be paid either way.
I don't believe they should be paid but I do believe that they should have the same rules (in a game) as the next level.
I would be okay with them being paid, just as long as they're not making NBA type money.
"...For sake of this discussion I suggest that the "student-athletes" is in name only, in fact they are employees who have a boss called "coach" who tells them where to be and when, how to prepare and required to be on the job/train and play the games as instructed. They can be fired at anytime by the boss and have their scholarship not renewed. They are generating income for their employer "university" and as such should be compensated based on their performance. Unlike most employees who can move to another job if they can improve their situation, but instead the NCAA restricts their movement very much like the Reserve Clause used to in MLB. The universities cry and complain that are spending all this money scholarships when it is just a shell game within the universities accounting system because no cash changes hands. The actually cost to stick one more student in a class of 200 is minimal and I doubt is equivalent to rate charged for the college credit hour because the cost are fixed with the professor's salary and facility costs so the more people in the class the lower the actual cost per student. Also the scholarship student is not preventing the university from adding one more paying student to make up for the supposed cost expended on the scholarship. On the side of the "student-athlete" the value of his scholarship to the "student-athlete" can be minimal if the boss/coach sticks the student in a general studies major that only benefits the coach now and is of very little use to student later in life. I suggest that the value added to any university by the athlete/employ exceeds the true cost to the university. The universities are always going to claim they are losing money on athletics to bolster their argument that the student should not get anymore payment than a scholarship based on cost rather than the fairness of the issue. The NCAA is a monopoly that would not be allowed in any other place in our economy that completely ignores the free market system using flawed and emotional arguments.", #LinkedIN Terry Tolbert http://www.linkedin.com/groupAnswers?vi … _132436527
