In the article, “College Athletes to pay or not to pay”, it explains that football players should start getting paid for working hard. Although athletes get scholarship[s, they spend most of their time working hard and making the sport their “full time job”. Therefore, they should receive a check for being out their and putting their time and effort. The coaches do not go out and play it is the players that helps the team win. The NCCAA recently took this situation into consideration by passing a law that football plays should receive money for what they do.Do you think that football players should be paid?
I think that this a good decision to make considering that the players do make it their full time job and take the sport seriously. Money would also help them to get their needs or pay for important things. This should also motivate them to try even harder knowing that they are getting paid to do something that love to do.
