Your arguments are ridiculous. If they need a job, they can go get one right out of high school like millions of other people. If they want to invest in their future, they can go to college and work hard so that when they get out they can get a great job - like millions of other people.
And if they play football, they get the following as compensation:
Tuition (over $100,000 at some schools)
Top notch medical care (best surgeons, etc)
Access to State of the Art work out facilities
Personal trainers
Stipend for living expenses
Bowl game trips - all-expenses paid including lavish gifts
And that only covers some of the monetary gains. Lets not forget that they get national exposure to the NFL, coaching that helps get to the next level (like anyone in the real world gets that), these guys are treated like heroes on campus and get all kinds of attention from girls, and if OSU players don't make it at the next level there is a place for them here in Ohio in broadcasting and other jobs. People are always willing to find a place for a former Buckeye.
Go ask a regular student what they get.
And for you to say there is no deal in college is flat out ignorant. So I will explain it to you: "If you come play football for us, here is what you get in return:(see above)". They are not forced. They do not have to play football. Playing football is not a right in this country or any other. They have the option of not playing AT ANY TIME. They CHOSE to play.
Sounds like a great deal to me. You sound like a selfish baby.
glad someone else don't have their head up their ass
