The article “Amatuerism And The Modern College Athlete” is about how the argument of the NCAA on not paying student athletes is invalid.

Other reasons this article states are that student athletes play in front of thousands of people in huge stadiums while being broadcasted on TV and also have cutting edge training facilities. The article also describes how most of the time spent in a day by a student athlete is related to their respective sports and how little time is dedicated to school, as the author states that time spent on sport activities “exceeds 40 hours”. This article also describes how sports scholarships are in all actuality contracts between the universities and the athletes, as the article states that the scholarships are “one year renewable at discretion of the coaching staff, and are contingent upon the athlete performing in a way it benefits the school.” It also goes into detail about how some basketball players are worth more than $100,000 to universities, but the scholarships they receive fall short of that amount.
