When a college athlete goes to college they have classes all day, and the they have to go to practice or to workout. After they do all that it is very late and most have to do homework or study for test there is no room to make money as a college athlete. When schools make money most of it comes from sports cause people want to come and see the upcoming stars in the sports world. These kids brig in so much money and it all goes to the college and some of that money should go to the players that bring in the money. I understand that people will say giving a college kids money they will be irresponsible with it which could happen time to time, but when you see these kids are getting put in the spot light and people know them all around the world and they bring so much money to the college it wouldn't hurt to give the kids a couple hundred dollars a month.


This is a good argument but I don't believe that college athletes should be paid. Many college athletes receive scholarships to play their sports. Because of this I do not believe that they need other financial compensation.
