Counter Arguuement

Davis Malone- "The NCAA should not consider paying collegiate athletes for their participation in their respective schools athletic programs. The education and services collegiate athletes receive for their participation is enough compensation and will be valuable after they’re done competing athletically."


Leo Infante- I disagree with you Mr. Malone beucase even as they risk careeer endding injuries every every time they step on that court, field, rank. Just last weekend, Louisville's Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome broken leg (But successfully had surgery that will enable him to return to playing eventually) He should have got paid for at least for the Surgery.
