At the end of the day their parents or the student don't have to pay for college. They get to play the game they love and they get an education for free. Paying them on top is just plain stupid. If they need the money so bad, then quit playing football, and get a job or two like everyone else in college.

I'm not talking about the university doing it. I'm talking about them getting a share of the sales from merchandise the NCAA sells because they play football. I'm not advocating that schools pay these guys.

The sports you mentioned don't profit and therefore wouldn't get money. I'm just saying the NCAA should protect their athletes from more than just agents and stop using their profit as an excuse to abuse players.

edit: The NCAA can sell licenses to their sport where people who are not anyone (but oddly enough feel and look like the same player at the same university wearing that same number). I mean, we all know the QB at Washington is Jake Locker in spite of him being "QB 10" in the game.

The NCAA can't pay football players and not pay other athletes. Doesn't matter if their sports aren't profitable if the NCAA overall is.

The university can't do it because of Title IX. The NCAA isn't a federally funded organization and therefore does not have to abide by that kind of regulation.

Arguably, the recent Supreme Court case (American Needle vs the NFL) could allow institutions (which are clearly 120 competing institutions) to pursue contracts of their own. However, I doubt they do this.

Yes because they are force to go to college for 3 years (NFL) or 1 year (NBA).

Clearly they are being forced to get educated, live in a nice place and eat for free for 3 years.

Not to mention that's the NFL's rule, not NCAA or schools. So it is incredibly illogical to say that since one business won't hire me, another has to pay me.

Jesus, the lack of any common sense or reason in these arguments gets better and better with time.
