I believe that college athletes should not be paid for what they do since it defeats the entire purpose of getting scholarships and makes all other students at the school jealous since they don't get paid for doing something.

I believe that college athletes should be paid. They provide a service to the college, and a very valuable one at that. For example: the ASU athletics department generated $75 million in the 2013-2014 season.[1] Just like colleges hire student janitors, librarians, secretaries, and assistants, they also hire athletes; and they should all be paid! The service of the other jobs has it's value, and the value of an athlete's service is very high.

Attention: due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to post my argument until tomorrow (I'm out of town and am current writing this on my phone). If the round is forfeited then that is why. I will just post my 2nd round argument as my 3rd round argument.
