Do you think student athletes are being exploited? Why or why not?

A full-ride scholarship at, for example, the University of Michigan is worth $67,000 a year. Not bad for part-time seasonal work.

The poor kid isn't generating revenue for others to take. The Amazon employee is in the same situation, how does that make it any better? Bad argument

And how much do universities, cable networks, advertisers, and retailers make from their performance? Is it equivalent?

If the NCAA does not want to pay players, they should, at very least be able to make money off their name, likeness and get endorsements.

Another reason this is a complete waste of time.

For every Alabama and Ohio State where sports is big business, there are the Tennessee Tech’s of the world where it is not. Not every athletic program raked in millions a year.

Free college would hardly be considered a hardship. Just ask t those of us who had to pay for their own college .

How is anyone against this... their making billions and I think the athletes need to get their fair share.

Something like scholarship vouchers?? That the student-athletes can use themselves or give to family members / close friends.. this gives back money to the student athletes in a responsible manner and also pushes to close the educational access gap that already exists.

Paying college players would destroy the spirit of college athletics.

If you pay them (outside college expenses) then they become professionals.
