The main idea was to request the NCAA and the members on whether they could afford paying college athletics. But the answer was absolutely not expected hence, rejected the idea.
According to the NCCA argument states that schools constituted within the NCCA possess enough money that can be spent on sports. Additionally break even and schools losing funds on the sports program were the main contributors of the overall rejection.
When economists were asked on college athletics being paid, approached the answer as positive and stated that the NCAA is capable of paying the college athletics since the funds are available. According to the recent financial year revenue of NCAA, illustrated that the association generates approximately billion dollars in its revenue. This clearly illustrates that the NCAA has enough funds that can pay the college athletics.

It is imperative pay the college athletics in order to motivate the students. This is a strategy that can enhance high school involvement in extra curriculum activities. Therefore, students should be paid in accordance to their handwork. Instead of NCAA spending all the funds in other aspects, they should consider payments of college athletics as a way of enhancing school competitions.
