March Madness is a basketball tournament for most college teams. They compete for the championship, millions of people watch and bet on the games. Chris Smith wrote, "CBS and Turner Broadcasting make more than $1 billion off the games, thanks in part to an $700,000 ad rate for a 30-second spot during the Final Four." The players however get no payment. Even though they risk their whole athletic career for the sport. A famous career ending injury was Kevin Wares. He landed on his leg funny and suffered a compound fracture. The main question arising from all of this money is; are college athletes considered amateur athletes anymore. The NCAA wants to move away from big money, they want school to become more about learning and the education, while some athletes don’t go there for an education. Because a top college basketball player is worth $265,000 per year, shouldn't they be paid a portion of this money?
