College Sports And The Different Tiers Associated With It
The notion of paying the athletes associated with college sports is an ongoing debate continued since the early 90s. The NCAA football bowl games have attracted the media attention and have helped in earning lots of revenues. It is because of this reason that now there is a clamoring for compensating the football and the basketball players beyond that of a scholarship. It is often said that paying the athletes might have a potential consequence for the college administrators, coaches, and athletes, as a whole.
However, there are many others that argue over the fact that athletes receive scholarships by means of which they can get a free college education and in return they represent their universities. On the other hand, some are of the view that the scholarships are often not enough to compensate and they should receive additional compensation. Well, the idea of paying to the college athletes dates back to the first intercollegiate competition.
There are several points given in favor of not paying any fees to the college athletes. Colleges and universities provide an invaluable service to the communities by providing education. The value of college education is priceless and can never be compensated with fees. Apart from that, there are many other practical issues to consider, as well. These include the total amount of money the athletes should get and whether the payments will be based on performance. These issues seem to raise far more questions than answers. The most important question that comes is what will happen to the non-revenue sports at the college that lose money from sports programs.
