Re: article on the 'student-athlete'

So tired.of the liberal student-athlete whine.

How many 18-22 yr olds are making $20-$60k per yeat? Much less getting free training table meals, medical and preferrential student registration and tutoring?

99.5% are not even pro prospects and are getting paid to play a game. In many cases they are subs too.

Ask the other 99.5% of students working at Starbucks what they think of a student-athlete whine when those athletes get all these perks? what % of non-athletes spend more time working than in class? ALMOST ALL

Shut up or just eliminate all scholatships and see what the poor abused basketball and football players do after hs? It would not be making $15-60k plus benefits.

And again most athletes wash out... only 1/3 of the roster in hoops and football even play regularly but they all are on ride.
