Should College Athletes Be Paid

By: Toby Bekele

Where I stand

My Stance is the absolute opposite of the NCAA's stance on this according to this article written by them. " former NCAA basketball stars Ed O'Bannon and Shane Battier said student-athletes should be compensated for their hard work. But ask the NCAA and its member institutions whether they can afford to pay student-athletes, and their bottom line is clear: no."

No Mo Paygate

Some athletes are abosolutley opposed to paying the young college athletes

Some former college athletes are really against paying the athletes in college. A great example of this would be Charles Barkley.


So I do think that it will be a great idea to pay these hard working college athletes.
