Student Name:Topic: Amateurism and College SportsTutor:Date:Amateurism and College SportsAbstractCollege sports are today a major business venture generating billions of dollars in revenue for both the college sports governing body the NCAA and the colleges and universities. However, the college athletes that work hard and sacrifice their time and effort that generate these revenues receive little or no share at all of the revenues this is all under the guise of amateurism. This has resulted into controversy and the problem regarding whether college athletes should be paid. This paper is a problem solution argumentative essay and, therefore, provides insight into the problem and provides a solution to the existing controversy.HypothesisCollege athletes give their best in practice, and the games hence are the ones responsible for generating the large amounts of revenue that comes from college sports today. In addition, the scholarships they are provided do not cater for all their needs and just like other students they have extra needs and; therefore, they should be paid.IntroductionThe NCAA is a voluntary body that comprises of an association of approximately 1,200 colleges and universities and among the purposes of the association is the promotion of amateur athletics.

The NCAA insists that these young men are gaining some valuable life lessons when they engage in intercollegiate athletics. Therefore, they are just student-athletes and not athletes (McCormick and McCormick 73). Characterizing athletes as ‘student-athletes’ allows the NCAA to obscure the legal reality that these students are actual athletes and, in fact, employees. The creation and fostering that these college athletes are not employees allows the institution, universities, and colleges to obtain substantial pecuniary gains and other related benefits. These come from the athletes’ talents, time, energy, and effort – their labor – while they curtail costs associated with the labor. This has enabled the NCAA and its associates to reap a fantastic surfeit of riches (McCormick and McCormick 74).Modern sports have today shifted from the common fun and games into a more serious business venture.
