If players start getting paid I知 done with college sports
« on: October 02, 2019, 10:32:12 am »

Just like I知 done with pro sports.  Anyone else feel this way?   I知 wondering if there are enough people like me that would quit spending money on and even watching college sports entirely that would hurt the sport.   If people quit throwing money and TV ratings at it, would it cripple the game?

I've been losing interest for many years, due to the horrendous amount of money in today's game. If they begin paying players, that may very well be the final straw for me.

I've just never cared for sports that are completely dominated by money. It's one reason why I don't follow soccer, even though I love the sport, because it seems worse than any other sport in that regard. On a team level, it's not really a sport if the richest teams have huge advantages, imo. That's just business.

Admittedly, I'm addicted to sports.  Probably an unhealthy obsession w/ CFB, NFL, MLB, CBB, NBA, CBaseball, Soccer, etc.  Sports was the bond between my dad and his dad, the bond between my dad and I, the bond between my wife & I (true, I swear, she's as big a nut as I), and a bond between my son and me.

No, I don't believe paying players would take away my love of watching sports, similar to how I'm still a rabid NBA & NFL fan despite the politicization that can be exhibited by some players.  I'm not going to let the reaction of some of the players steal my joy.  Same attitude that I have towards musicians -- we may not agree politically, but that won't keep me from enjoying their music.

Just can't figure out the rage over some kids being able to make money off their own image.

Considering how much money college sports generate, I seriously doubt if there would be enough people not watching to make a dent in it. If you wanna give up something you supposedly enjoy enough to join a message board about it over something so trivial, go for it.

So why do people have such an issue with atheletes trying to make money off of their name, but are ok with a non-athelete with a full scholarship making money while going to college?

It's because of the blatantly obvious reason of boosters being able to just flat out pay kids to come play for their program under the guise of paying them for their image. "Hey, come play for UCLA and i'll pay you 2 million dollars to front a commercial for my car company" etc etc

I知 all for it because it bucks the ncaa and their screw jobs. 

I hate it because I think it will change college football in a big way.
