abstract
The NCAA should allow student athletes to receive a larger financial compensation for the amount of revenue they are responsible for generating annually. The current rules in place by the NCAA restrict any student-athlete from receiving money for his or her performance in their sport. These rules take advantage of student athletes because they are required to fulfill high labor demands, while authorities and surrounding businesses are able to profit from their performance without paying them anything. As college sports in America continue to grow and become more lucrative each year, this problem becomes more evident. It is time for the NCAA to revise its model that has been in place for years, and allow student athletes to receive payments for their time, commitment, and sacrifice made to help their universities.
