College Athletes, NCAA, pros need to rethink

What is wrong with the world?

Millions of students have dreams of going to college- and simply getting a 4 year degree.

That's not enough for some. Student athletes have this sense that they have earned enough to not have to go to school. This is flat out riidiculous. The fact that the NCAA doesn't discourage students from entering drafts makes no sense. The pro Leagues help absolutely nothing by Encouraging the student athletes to leave school and make the big bucks.

Wow, if we all had a chance to go to college for free and have absolutely everything paid, or even have half our college paid for.
Then slap everyone in the face because they want to make money.

Should college athletes be allowed to leave school before they complete their degree?
ABSOLUTELY NOT.

I'm not going to talk about how it's good for the kids. I'm not going to rub it in that they are going to be the next Antoine Walker without even having 100 grand. Welcome to fast food, idiots.

I would love if these kids had to pay for another student to be able to go to school.

Hey ANTHONY DAVIS, I COULD REALLY USE THE MONEY TO GET OFF OF FINANCIAL PROBATION AND PAY FOR HOUSING SO I CAN FINISH MY DEGREE. I think we could use another teacher in the world, right you a$$hole.

The fact that I am nearly 3/4 the way through college and can't find a decent job doesn't mean anything to you. The fact that I have kids that I can't provide a home for means nothing to you. The fact that I can't pay my child support because I can't find a job means nothing to you. YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE! EVERYONE OF YOU THAT TAKE COLLEGE FOR GRANTED ARE ASSHOLES!

Grow up. Finish you're college before you go to the draft. Leagues, grow a pair and MAKE the kids stay. Not for them, but for the rest of us whom don't get the opportunity. Or us whom don't have enough money to get back to college and can't find a job.

What has happened to sports?

There is a reason the UFC is becoming a dominant sport. Its because it is real sport backed by solid ethics by its ruling body. The NFL has had scandals for the past decade, probably longer, and is so money hungry I don't even believe it's real anymore. In MMA, unless there is a real feud between participants, there is a handshake and congratulations following the event. The only team sport where the handshake is even used is in hockey, in the playoffs. There isn't even room for it in the amateur world of college sports. The sportsmanship in sports is so far gone that it will take some serious legislating to get it back. If a player gets hurt, he will whine about how it was intentional, and will automatically accuse the other party of foul play. I love sports, but to see all semblance of sportsmanship go out the window is a viewport into what our culture has become. There is no respect for the peer, there is no respect for what the other people put in. Is it really that difficult to line up and give the other players a handshake? It may not be sincere, but it is still there and being done, out of respect. It doesn't have to be televised. All we ever see is guys giving their teammates handshakes and hugs. Show some respect for your opponents, all of them, be it the 12 in basketball, 25 in baseball, 19 in hockey, or 53 in football, every one of them work hard and deserve respect from every one of the other players
