The Issue With Not Paying Student Athletes
Corporate athleticism (Schneider, 2001)
Other Expenses
Is the NCAA really protecting Student Athletes? (Schneider, 2001)
An athletic scholarship DOES NOT cover all cost with attending college!
Scholarships Renewal
Coaches’ Salaries (Koch, 1981)
Jermey Bloom (Sharp, 2004)
Commerical Activity and Sports Video Games (Kaburakis, Pierce, Cianfrone, & Paule, 2012)

"One and Done"
Where is the protection for the Student Athlete?
Salaries of Coaches
NCAA portrays Cartel behavior (Kahn, 2007)
Athletic Departments (Weaver, 2011)
Prevents the "One and Done"
Develops Motivation and Maturity
Teaches Self-Discipline and Responsibility

Creates a division amongst the student body and other sports team
Passion and Value of the Sport itself could be lost

My Position on the Issue
I am for Student Athletes getting Paid
Watched the movie "Schooled: The Price of College Sports"
Provides more opportunities
Protects the Student Athlete
Workers Compensation and Medical Benefits (Sack, 2008)
Avoids Exploitation
It will aid with this new "millennial generation" to work harder(Ferri-Reed, 2013)
Teaches Collaboration

Possible Results
Increase of Graduation Rates (Eckard, 2010)
Reduce Illegal payments and outside compensation (Schneider, 2001)
Funding would come from the Athletic Department and not from the Student Fee's fund
Privacy Protection (Kaburakiset al., 2012)
Possible Results
Protection of the Athlete (Look at YouTube Video)
Develops a new positive image of the NCAA (Kahn, 2007)
Avoids lawsuits like the Jeremy Bloom situation (Sack, 2008)
Resolving the Issue
Monthly Payment Plan (Schneider, 2001)
Tracking Funds:
School Supplies
Personal Supplies
Year around health coverage

Resolving the Issue
Right to a four-year Scholarship
Minimal Endorsements
