Athletics are not the original focus of schools. That is not what they were meant to do, nor is that what they will do. School is not a place designed for sports. It is designed to give our youth the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life. Athletic superstars may make a lot of money, yes, but there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who do not have the same athletic talent as those superstars. In sports, only the top few players make a lot of money. The rest go into other jobs, possibly lower-level jobs because they didn't focus enough on school. Sports just don't give enough people good jobs for it to be a prime focus for schools. If you are just talking about more funding, I can somewhat agree with that, but I believe, as a team building exercise, raising money on their own is good for sports teams. It binds them together.
