There are still going to be people in the shadowy background waiting and willing to do business with these kids and give them a handout, whether it is in cash under the table or homes, clothes or cars. The tiered payments offered to professional players only motivate them to work harder to maintain their ranking.
Could Payment Decrease Media Scandals? Student athletes already receive benefits for playing college sports including a free education, housing, meals, travel, networking and other perks, which give them a huge boost up in life when compared to their peers. This, of course, raises the question of where the money will come from. The rule could be to test the physical readiness of players. Yet, no player can benefit from that work. They are full of impact that can result to injuries, where many players, especially those who are playing for the major leagues, have been seriously hurt at any point during games and even practices. Using the inability to distribute the funds equally as an impediment is an excuse, a rather intellectually lazy one at that. The top playing Division 1 schools contribute more to this than many of the lowest members combined.
Although maybe the video game part of that is changing, as explained in the video below: Colleges sell jerseys, just without names on them. When universities sell jerseys and t-shirts with popular numbers on them, they are literally selling the person hood of the person whose number is on the jersey. This multi-billion dollar association provides outlines on which schools taking part should abide when offering and providing scholarships. If they were employees at a company, missing extended time would result in an absolute dismissal. When I mean getting paid I only mean a stipend or weekly check, not thousands or millions.
College is a stepping-stone to the professional leagues. Then No Need To Pay Schools are smart about it. When players do try to earn a little extra on the side, they — and their programs — get punished. All of this happens while their coach will often make a comfortable six figure salary. As has been mentioned above, most Division I schools, which is where the elite athletes play, are not making a profit. A good portion of these players are trying to adjust in the classroom as well and feel inferior in more ways than we care to realize.
Then, the money would be disbursed evenly throughout the school, resulting to lower tuition rates and improved school programs. My goal in this paper is to bring some knowledge to people that people college athletes have it bad, or need more help. While a cash payment may not solve the problems of a college athlete, and it may perpetuate some economic issues, payment is what these players are entitled to because they are the symbols that fill the stadiums across national campuses. Data Shared with Third Parties We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties. This reasoning makes sense in terms of the associations involved, but the leagues will claim the benefits were for the players too. On the other hand, college football players sacrifice their bodies almost daily and put themselves in danger for each and every game, all without pay. After all, they would be more difficult to argue that the player should receive a cut.
In addition, laws have been made as well as official monitoring by agencies to solidify that all measures are being taken to keep individuals from being exploited in the fast-paced and sometimes dangerous world of college athletics. From the perspective of kids themselves, especially ones who are coming from impoverished areas, a lot of that money would wind up having to go back home to support their families, leaving them with nothing once again. They put up a perfect 12-0 season under a brand new coach. They are being paid for effectively expropriating what the athletes would get in a market. Each college has jersey sales and other souvenir items that they sell in their stores. As college sports evolve through new discoveries in technology and the risky game becomes increasingly publicized, there is one thing that is certain as of now—student-athletes will not be paid.
His top two choices for college: Mississippi State University and Auburn University. But they were because previously, numerous players traded memorabilia in exchange for goods. A good example of this is female athletes suing because of lower pay than their male counterparts. As recently as 2012, in 40 out of 50 states the highest publically paid employee was the head basketball or football coach of a state university. They could set a level of parity among the schools within the conference and then go off and compete for talent in such a way that if a school up in Minnesota or Maine or Massachusetts thinks hockey players are worth something, then they would get paid. This hard work also leads to salary increases in the form of media events and scholarship deals. The fact that many of these players can't qualify to get into the universities that they play for can only mean that their physical work is valued more than their brains.
This only hurts the cause for a coalition because it is too costly on organizations and may end up in the debacle of college athletics all together. Are players worth more to schools than their scholarships? However, players are not going to enter the draft in either sport if their bodies are not ready, especially football. The fame and prestige that comes from being a big college football star goes a long way towards helping many of these players overcome any social economical disparity, but it is always there. The goal of this expansion was no different than the goal of Auburn…to bring more money into the program. Will each player receive the same amount? But it is certainly worth trying.
