Proponents say that college athletes deserve to get paid because they are often risking their bodies and their future careers and earning potential to play for colleges and universities while often receiving a sub-par education. They say that the NCAA, colleges, and universities profit unfairly from the work of college athletes, and the ones that are actually doing the work aren't getting anything in return. Opponents say that college athletes are not professionals and therefore should not get paid. The purpose of going to college is to get the training so you can use it later, which is what the NCAA provides. They say that athletes play at the college level and they further use that experience at the professional level where they will get paid. They also say that many student-athletes already receive scholarships and other benefits, so there is no need for further payment.
