Millions of people watch sports every day. College Sports are very important to society and college players should not get paid. Growing up it is every athletes dream to make money playing the sport they love. That’s what professional sports are for. College is for learning. If college players receive money then they wouldn’t play as good. If colleges started playing the players, they would forget that they are there to learn in class and on the team. For some students’ college might be their last opportunity to play sports.Fans watch college sports because they enjoy them. When any tournament was on, everyone cheered for Illinois as they wore their jersey. That money from shirts is for the athletic department at colleges, not for the players. It is and should be an honor for someone to admire a college athlete because they enjoy their sport so much. They play because they love it, not for the money.College students are competing because they love the sport and are in college for an education. Being chosen to play on a college team is an honor and a privilege, not a job.
