    • Hi Destiny,

      I say athletes should be paid. Between games and practices, as an athlete hustling as a full-time job should be hit with a check. People feel like this is a great idea because it feels like the right thing to do, therefore promoting it. As athletes keep their own motives up, they push towards their goal… their own mission to success. Full-time athletes deserve to get paid, only if they actually put in work for the community. As they make an impact on the economy.

      For a New Era, NCAA made an announcement to allow athletes to receive payment. This must feel nice because when they heard this type of news, I bet excitement was taken part, one to one, back to back, emotions bang on each other. Happy lifestyle for good things happening while you get paid for doing something you love. Getting paid adds an extra greater feeling. On the other hand, if they didn’t get paid there would be different types of emotions.
