Tuesday’s are always better after a night of football!
Patriots and Raiders are winners last night… but first I want to focus on a VERY controversial sports topic
Should college athletes get a piece of the money pie?
A new study
shows exactly how valuable these athletes are, and the group behind it says, yes student athletes should
get paid. It's always been a hot button topic: the study not only says they
should get paid, it gives an actual dollar amount. The study
claims the average football player is worth more than
to their big-time college, basketball players have a market value of over $265,000
. Despite the fact that these athletes generate millions of dollars in revenue for their schools, many are living below the federal poverty line
and that forces athletes to get paid under-the-table. The study was done by a group representing college athletes. It also calls for scholarships to include the extra costs of attending school and for athletes to be able to make money through endorsements. The NCAA
told the Associated Press it hasn't looked at this report, but it was already looking at some possible changes.
