Alrighty. Well, I believe collage athletes should bot be paid because many-if not all- receive scholarships for their work. Getting a free education and being paid may sound great, but collages and universities don't have an unlimited supply of money.
Most collages will have a basketball team, a football team, a hockey team, and a cheer squad, and that's just the tip of an iceberg. A football team has 53 active roster players (http://m.bleacherreport.com...). That is 53 players getting a scholarship and getting an athletes pay. And that's just one team.
My point is, collages don't have unlimited money. Either be paid, or no scholarship.

Well you would probably say that collage students need money. However, the school shouldn't have to pay for 100% of their needs. Also when money is at stake, they may be pressured more into taking PED's.
