It is not a secret that except the scholarship college athletes get, they also are paid money for various completions and they are paid a lot. However, during a long period of time, there have been debates about this question, because not all students and other people are satisfied with the situation. They think that it is quite unfair to get not only free place to study, but also a scholarship and some kind of salary. A lot of them think that such great sum of money could be spent much effectively. It becomes even worse, when the time of great competitions comes, like college football season or NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. People just don’t understand, why athletes should be paid by college.
It is understandable that every such student has a talent and colleges offer such students their scholarships. This way, everyone is satisfied. Students don’t have to pay huge amount of money for their studying and colleges get people, who can present them on different championships. The cost for studying at college is quite high and, if to look at this question deeply, it is understandable that athletes don’t pay for anything at college or university and also get a scholarship, so, it is sort of their salary. There is nothing wrong to be compensated for their special skills, but to be paid another extra money is not right.
There is also another side of this situation – such thing as professionalism. Luckily, there are a lot of people interested in the professional sport and if some student desire to get money for this kind of thing, he/she should try its powers in something more serious, than college completions. Any college doesn’t have an opportunity to pay athletes such a great amount of money as it is paid in the professional league. This means that every athlete, who wants to be paid, should think of getting money not from a college, but from people, who will be glad pay for a great show and competition.
Another reason for students not to be paid for their sports talents – is that college isn’t for making sport career, but for studying and getting a degree. In other words, sport in this situation should be a hobby, something that only can help to get an education of a dream and as the next step a job of a dream. Athletes’ scholarships are something that can really help, especially, when students don’t have money to pay for college, but it shouldn’t become a place for earning money.
It is not a secret that except the scholarship college athletes get, they also are paid money for various completions and they are paid a lot.
