Pay for Student Athletes The NCAA for years now has had many strict rules and regulations on student athletes One of the most controversial of these rules is the issue of whether student athletes should be paid or receive any form of monetary compensation The NCAA rules committee has stood strong on its stand that athletes who receive scholarships should go to school and should not need any more money to support themselves But students and some coaches think their rules are to harsh and the NCAA should pay student athletes or let them find ways to make money Student athletes right now have no way to receive any money if they are on a scholarship They cannot hold jobs or receive money from agents or sports boosters This rule was put in to protect the athletes from agents and boosters But if they cannot even hold jobs how are they to have any spending money The NCAA has recently tried to alleviate this by allowing students with scholarships to hold jobs that pay a maximum of 2000 a year This way students can have enough spending money to go to movies buy pizza or just have some miscellaneous spending money But many are opposed to this new rule Douglas J Lany writes that the problem is that a 2000 check for a job even if work is not part of the job description cant compete with a 2000 check plus 10000 in cash He is saying that the problem is not the 2000 job but the 10000 dollars the agents will give to athletes as bribes He says the main problem is not students holding jobs but the agents bribing students Even by having jobs this will not help the NCAA from sports agents Another proposed idea is to directly pay student athletes for playing for the college This idea has been passed around for years but has always been turned down
