Tracee Hamilton, a sports columnist with the Washington Post believes that college football players should be paid to play. She states that college football is “broken” and there is no way to fix it. Paying them might not fix the system completely but Hamilton feels it’s “the best college can do.” I believe that college football players shouldn’t be paid. I can give you three good reasons why not. Playing college football is a privilege, not a business.
College athletes sacrifice so much for their respective schools and should be given more money and refine their scholarships to cover their expenses to prevent them from accepting illegal benefits, and give back to the athletes that bring so much revenue to their programs and schools. “NCAA athletes are held to what is, essentially, the strictest code of amateurism in sports. It's not just that the rules prevent them from driving a booster's Ferrari to Las Vegas for the weekend. The rules can make them think twice before bumming a ride to the mall.” (Cohen). There have been scandals in college sports (predominately football) involving players taking illegal benefits, such as meals paid for, having tattoos paid for, and having entertainment and nightclub cover charges taken care of.

Rough Draft Is Football Becoming Soft? There are so many new rules coming in to the National Football League (NFL) and National College Athlete Association (NCAA) that are changing the way football will be played forever. These rules are taking a lot of the hard hits that people are paying good money to see out of the game. Football is suppose to be a sport of pain, agony and glory. It is understood that there has been a number of head and neck injuries but that is part of the risk one takes when they decide they are going to put that chin strap on.
Some claim that the biggest bowl games (Rose, Orange, Sugar and Fiesta) could be scheduled as earlier games in the playoffs leading up to a national championship. This may be, but who wants to watch the great Rose Bowl become a stepping-stone towards a greater goal? "Supporters of big bowls such as the Rose Bowl would not be supportive toward a playoff system." (Carrey 1). This could cost college football a lot of money and destroy the immense custom that the bowls have
Matthew Wallace Professor Conflict and Reconciliation 20, January 2011 Conflict Analysis A conflict is when two parties both perceive their positions as incompatible. Both parties believe that their goals are less obtainable because of the situation and therefore something must be done about it. In 1993 players from the Nation Football League finally won big with the new collective bargaining agreement between the players and the team owners.

Stefan Clark Dr. Ryan English 101 25 October 2012 College vs. the pros Have you ever asked yourself “Are there any differences in the NFL and collegiate football”? After a little research I discovered that yes, although they are both the same sport, there happen to be some significant differences in the two. College football may at times seem more difficult than the NFL, because players in the NFL are paid and know that regardless that will make a certain amount of money.
