    • Mack this was a very interesting piece of writing. It always used to wonder why athletes would bother playing for a team, when they’re not getting paid and when they were not guaranteed to play at the next level. I strongly thought they should be paid until I realized that they are offered scholarships and are still required to take classes and pass school. So you’re right I agree that they should not be paid until they get to the professional level. I’d love to hear more about this!

    • Thank you Mack for this information. It is interesting to see how many rules and regulations are made to just simply play a collegiate sport.

    In my topic, I chose to debate about if college should get paid or not. College athletes should be getting paid due to the fact that being a student athlete is like having a full time job.

    • Dear, Mack

      I strongly agree with all your viewpoints and have a similar motive. Remind the world of the poverty in America, New York and most importantly the world. Many societies are in a tough battle through poverty. I also agree with your thoughts on children poverty. For a child to be successful a strong base is highly recommended. Many people are by our side to increase the economy of the world and just make the world a better place. Helping others is a great way to limit poverty all around. My group and I also have a blog to propose information and methods to limit poverty. If you want to check out our blog, https://wordpress.com/view/povertynyc702223502.wordpress.com. We would love a collaboration, thank you.

    • I think you make some really good points, but personally I don’t care about uniforms anymore. I’ve just gotten used to them at this point. But the advantages of them aren’t just to help everyone look the same or help stop bullying, but it’s nice to have them. Instead of sitting in front of your closest picking out an outfit for 10-20 minutes every morning you can just put on your uniform and only worry about your hair. Its more about the simplicity rather than all the other stuff.

    • I can see both sides of this argument. I think both of these arguments have good reasoning, uniform is expensive but in some cases it may reduce bullying because it is one less thing people can be bullied for. I can see why you had problems with these articles too because there are many holes in the argument. What is your opinion?
