The source gives reasons as to why students shouldn't be paid salary to play college sports. It also shows how much money, on average, the student receives for free towards schooling
Andy Power's comment, March 20, 2013 1:27 PM
"College athletes receive numerous amenities and luxuries free of charge. When added up, these amenities and luxuries equate to more than $100,000, which is way above an average American’s yearly income — currently less than $60,000 a year."
Andy Power's comment, March 20, 2013 1:30 PM
Paying collegiate athletes would bring up the problem of how much to pay each athlete for each sport. Should a football or basketball player receive more money than a soccer of hockey player. This can lead to controversy inside the school, ultimately causing individuals to transfer schools or not attend a school at all

Study: College becoming unaffordable to Middle Class

Study: College becoming unaffordable to Middle Class | Persuasive Research Paper | Scoop.it

"Many Florida families have been paying up to 25 percent of median income for public in-state college costs — out of reach for some middle-class parents who have taken recent pay cuts or lost jobs, according to a new study.

 

"Some South Florida families are paying even more — plunking down what amounts to about a third of the median income for Floridians for students to attend Florida International University or Florida Atlantic University, according to the study co-written by the Research Institute on Social and Economic Policy at FIU.

 

"With 15 percent tuition hikes starting this fall, FAU students will pay more than $17,000 a year, including room and board. FIU students face similar costs.

 

"Meanwhile, the Great Recession has shrunk median household income to $48,772 in Broward and $49,660 in Palm Beach County by 2009, the U.S. Census Bureau reported. In fact, the American middle class finished the last decade poorer and in fewer numbers than when the 21st Century began, according to a Pew Research Center report released Wednesday. ..."

This source shows how the college costs continue to rise, therefore college athletes should not be paid to play since they already receive their education for free.

This source if credible because it is produced by the University of Stanford that provides reasons as to why collegiate athletes should not be paid to play, but rather receive money from endorsements only.

this source is .org making it creditable. It also shows the opinions of NCAA high ranking officials on the topic of paying the athletes.
Andy Power's comment, March 20, 2013 1:35 PM
College athletes would never be able to settle on a certain amount of money they want to be paid. On average, a football player at a school is worth about $120,000, while a basketball player is worth about $265,000. Athletes wouldn't accept that kind of money when they think they are doing a multi million dollar job.

"To attend an in-state public college for the 2012-13 academic year, the average overall cost (or "sticker price") for students who don't receive any financial aid rose 3.8% to a record $22,261, according to the report."

I will use the graph on the website to provide a visual illustration of how college costs continue to rise each year, giving more and more reason not to pay athletes to play at the collegiate level.
