Recent news blabs are advocating that college jocks should be on salary for their efforts. The plea is in consideration for the millions of bucks they bring into the campus through ticket sales. Should all be legal to pay the athletes, unlike money contributed under the table to college officials by rich people to get their dumb kids admitted?
Of course, college jocks do get free tuition, clothing, rooms and meals. And some of them actually attend classes. Of course, all the sweating they do on campus basketball courts and football fields educates them for coping with multi-million buck pro careers.
