Paying college athletes

What's on your mind?

Should be a open free market. Capitalism. Student athletes should be paid market rate. Whatever it may be. Third string badminton athlete would probably get zippo but the top five quarterbacks would get whatever the market would bare. Top softball pitchers and hitters would probably get a little something.

Another thing too. The student athletes (who are adults) parents financial standing should have no bearing on his or hers compensation. If an 18 year old goes and gets a job he doesn't take less money because his parents have money or get more money because his parents are poor. He is paid what he is worth.

Maybe parental financial standing shouldnt, but does.
Try to apply for assistance as a middle income family. No assistance for you top 1%.

How about this angle. Your paying a girl to be a waitress. She happens to have a nice set of teeth. Daily customers want to have their picture taken with her. So she makes an extra twenty bucks per snapshot at your restaurant.
Is that okay?
Somewhere there's going to be a conflict in this. Either someone's going to want their cut and think they deserve a percentage. Plus the college academic or athletic scholarship is paying the athlete to be there so it's already on their dime. Athletes on the scholarship are on a scholarship for a reason and there's an academic reason and there's an athletic reason they're already being paid to be there. That money has the biggest skin in the game.

What I am saying is that if Norte Dame wants the best HS quarterback they should be able to pay him whatever they choose plus scholarship.

And what if the adult student's parents don't want to or choose not to pay for their kids college should have no bearing on how much assistance one should get. These kids are adults. The financial status of their parents should mean zippo.

Coaches and schools are making a ton of money in the NCAA so why shouldn’t the kids reap some of the benefits from their abilities to perform athletically at the collegiate level. I do think paying amateur athletes will open a big can of worms, but letting a kid “legally” earn some money by signing a jersey or an autograph or doing an appearance or giving lessons or having a camp is arguably a good way for these athletes to profit from their ability to perform athletically.

If the referenced amateur athlete is being paid by a business endorsement are they still an amateur athlete? Or then what defines a pro?
Colleges already pay athletes in different checks they disburse to them. Extra money in them is not a new thing.
