They already get pay. in the form of free education, free books, free room and board, paid trips, lodging, state of the art weight rooms and trainers.Exactly what I said. That the NCAA prohibition on athletes being paid needs to be lifted. If we lift it and market forces decide that athletes don't get any money, terrific I couldn't care less.
When you add up the cost of 4 years it comes out to 100-120k in benefits that they receive currently tax free.Bull****. The average full ride football scholarship is much less than that per year. Incredibly few schools cost anywhere near $120k per year for tuition, fees, room and board. That's more than most schools cost for four years. That's an extreme case.
Why would they be taxed? because the IRS considers it income that is why they would be taxed.Why would he be taxed at 50-60%? And even if he were, getting your education half off is a fantastic deal that the vast majority of students would kill for.
Your ranting and conflicting yourself so no one can understand your argument.Only to someone who doesn't understand my argument at all.
