Should college and university athletes be paid for playing their sports?
college and university athletes should be paid because they're taking time out of their day to play sports, they are risking their bodies every time they play, and it can help with their further income and earnings.

risking their bodies
could happen at practice or at a game
could cost a lot of time that could've been used to study or practice
replacement of gear if it breaks when they hurt themselves
lots of time is spent practicing.
the NCAA (national collegiate athletic association) organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
being an athlete helps teach you life skills.
paying college and university athletes helps with balancing out how long their practices are, when a player gets injured, and when they need extra money.
spending time playing sports
very time consuming
that time could be used to study
some practices are over 40 hours a week
the NCAA actually restricts in-season practice to 20 hours a week.
college and university athletes practice for numerous hours each week, but they aren't paid. if they get paid, the money will help many things.
many people end up in debt when they finish college and university. if they're athletes, getting paid would help pay them, wouldn't it?
have you ever wondered what it would be like to practice a sport for over 40 hours a week but never get paid for it? that doesn't sound fair to me either.
