According to “College Athletes: To Pay or Not Pay?” people want to know if they should be paying college athletes for their hard work.
Many people say they should be paying athletes that are in college because they are students first and they should put in their hard work before they get rich and famous. once they start getting paid they will forget school. If the colleges start paying college athletes there might not have enough funds or to pay players every year. On the other hand, many colleges are making so much money off athletes. They have so many promotions and they would like to have a little bit of a paycheck/benefits.
I personally believe that they should pay college athletes. The athletes should get benefits but they should be on a contract. By them being on a contract will keep their focus on school first and athlete second. Once they see them slacking on their grades put them on probation. once they are on probation they won’t be getting benefits until they get their school work done first.
