Should college athletes be paid? This is something that is debatable, depending on what perspective that you're looking at the issue from. In my opinion, I believe that college athletes should be paid, and that is because of the following reasons:


I believe that being a college athlete is like being a full time employee, since the athletes move between their training sessions, classes, and games. They barely have time for anything else. The best thing would be to pay them for their time.

Pay the kids their money! πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’° Β Who are we kidding to think that most student athletes are in school to learn? Let's be real.. they're there for one reason only, sports. The 'education' they get always takes an extreme back seat to their athletic obligations and their interests. Pay the kids and get on with it..Β

People make so much money off of college sports - well, everyone except the players! That makes no sense. They are being taken advantage of. They deserve a piece of the pie 🍰 🍰

I think NCAA Athletes should be given money. The reason is simple. These athletes should be encouraged to pursue their careers in sports and they can only be motivated if they are provided with money. Scholarship would rather distract them from sports. Money would encourage them in ways more than one. They would start believing that they can earn a living through sports. Money would also allow them to buy quality sports goods. They should probably be rewarded with something else too like job sec... see more

Reality check, I say pay the athletes with money. They need them to buy things they need for their choice of sports too! You can't actually pay those stuff with just your scholarship grants, can you? Plus they will learn how manage their earnings early on and be independent financially.

I really believe that college athletes should be paid because aside from juggling classes they are to juggle training schedules and game tournaments too! It's more like having three full time jobs! It is only right to pay them for their efforts!Β

Should college athletes be paid or not? Of course they should be paid. They are the ones that put in the most effort to make their teams win or perform well. They are also the ones that are responsible for all the billions in revenue, that is collected by the NCAA annually. Why should all the money go to the coach, NCAA officials, and a couple of college sports officials?


The other reason that they should be paid is because it is a boost to their morale. It will make them strive to perform bett... see more

Deciding on whether to give student athletes money for participating in sporting activities or not, is an ongoing debate that is getting plenty of airtime from both sides. It is true that the students spend a lot of time and effort in the athletics activities, and many would argue that they should actually be paid. I think that the tuition should be enough for them. It is true that the NCAA is generating billions from the sporting activities, but paying the students would actually make them lose... see more

SO tired of all the kids whining and complaining. A FREE EDUCATION is an amazing privilege. These athletes should count their blessings, and not get greedy as hell.Β

Paying these kids with money than giving them scholarships will not really help them in in their later life when all the heat of fame has died down. I say give them scholarship grants, so to give them a better chance in life when they can no longer do the things in their prime.

Much has been talked about giving kids who excel in sports money or scholarships has sparked debates, but if you check polls most adults prefer scholarship grants than paying them money. I agree with them all the way! Why? Education is a better investment than giving them one time- big time spending power. Why else are there a lot of athletes who are actually broke when they are in their later years and not in their prime anymore?

Scholarship is money with a purpose. Simply giving them money will only help in short term. While each athlete enjoys the right to education, it is imperative that they should be guided in the best form for this education. These athletes are very young and many times immature. With a sudden impulse of money, it is highly likely that the amount be spent in items and acts of pleasure rather than a strategic investment for the future. Giving them scholarship ensures that the money is well spent in ... see more

In my opinion, NCAA athletes should complete their education and for that they should be provided with scholarship. β€œSports” is not sufficient to earn a living. What if they fail in making it big through Sports? How are they going to make ends meet? Will they go back to school again? These are some questions that should be asked before talking in favor of money. These kids should get proper education, so that if their skills in sports do not support them and their families, they would always hav... see more

Giving scholarships to these college athletes opens opportunities for these students not just to earn college degrees, but also to help them excel in athletics.
