i guess the question is, if my post doesn't contain a "fuckarse" or "cumdumpster" in it, does that mean you got a rise or not?
also, **** your mother.
I completely agree with your assessment of how college athletes are treated. It's a little sickening actually. I had a class in college with a guy who's now an elite QB in the NFL. I saw him twice the whole semester. His tutor came to class the rest of the time.

I don't think they should pay them though. Broke and unemployable is where they would've ended up anyway because a lot of them are dumbasses. At least they got four years of awesome fun on the school's dime out of the deal. I have a very hard time feeling sorry for them, especially when smarter kids don't get into the same school because they don't run as fast.
My thinking is, let them earn, while they are at (what is for many of them) their peak, and doing something that does generate a huge amount of money, only for other entities at the moment. They drive a multi billion dollar industry. All they can get is some booster love on the side? It doesn't seem right.

Sloppy plays, constant dropped balls, missed tackles. It sucks.
People would pack the stadiums even if every team was made up of walk-ons who were actual students who really earned their way into school, as long as the playing field was level.
people would still go, I'm not sure they'd pack them out, the same way though.
