    College athletes need to be getting paid.


    They get a free education.

    Four years in college (especially a University) can cost over $100k.

    I don't have any problem with a college student getting 4 free years of college in exchange for playing football in front of 80,000 people every week for a semester.

    I just feel sorry for the players that don't take their schoolwork seriously and don't graduate...or make it to the NFL.

    Because once they go down, then what? The school leaves a lot of these players high and dry.

    They SHOULD be getting paid, knowing the schools get HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS off of ticket sales, merchandising, TV rights, and recruitment funds, especially if schools have Heisman winners.

    I don't think it should be a lot, but a stipend scale based on credit hours (or years in school) should be instituted:

    Based on a 12-week semester:
    0-29 credits (freshmen): up to $1,500 per semester, or $125/week
    30-59 credits (sophmore): up to $2,400 per semester, or $200/week
    60-89 credits (freshmen): up to $3,600 per semester, or $300/week
    90-119 credits (senior): up to $4,200 per semester, or $350/week
    120+ credits (5th yr): up to $4,800 per semester, or $400/week

    This is fair. Not enough that they can "ball out" on, but more than enough to where students can have some spending money.

    I'm pretty sure they get meal cards, off campus housing and free books in addition to free tuition.

    Throw in some student loans and government grants and they're living just as good as some rich kid with a trust fund.

    Your pops shot a million plus joints and you fought like hell to be here. Your moms and pops probably asked for a 6'8 260 pound monster who could jump out the gym, and go on to become a gazillionaire.

    •Three cars at a time - one to ride around, one to stunt, one for Mrs.
    Lease them, car values aint shit
    •Buy your parent/s a crib in a good neighbourhood, they dont need a million dollar house they cant upkeep
    •Fuck cousins, uncles, aunts - they can fend for themselves

    Niggas really in here saying kids don't owe their parents anything? I mean if your parents are shitty and didn't do anything for you I guess that's true. But if they were in your life and took care of you, they earned whatever you can do for them. They aren't entitled to anything of course because being a parent was their choice, but they deserve it.
    Niggas think that they own things and man sits high upon thrones
    But when you die, tell me what the fuck you own.

    I gotta admit I agree with Irving on this one my people. Much too often as family members we feel our siblings who are successful hold a responsibility to help raise us up solely because of bloodline ties and or family ties, see this what he said is so very real to me is very hurtful but necessary for success listen: (My brothers and sisters, they're all grown. I'm like: 'You guys are grown.' Now I don't mind, I do what I can for all my nieces and nephews. I consider that to be an investment, what I give to them. But I consider it to be throwing money away now when I give to my brothers and sisters. I'm like: "Hey, this is spending money on the past. You guys, your future is set.) Yo this man means no offense I honestly put myself in the shoes of one of his siblings and fall back and say to myself yo this is true! There is nothing like independence no matter how small it may seem in the eyes of the person gaining it and that independence I mean it in all aspects. This is the message he is really trying to give his family! Don’t depend on me because I made it. You are grown keep fighting! But let’s invest in our children they are our future they are the future of this Nation and is true yo. I can go on but this statement he made right there was enough for me.

    "aren't entitled" means they aren't "owed" correct??!

    if so what are we talking about here??

    i hear all yall.....but having money changes the game for you.

    either you gotta cut off alot of people or be prepared to always have to fight an not feel welcomed if you aint giving.

    I find it hard to believe that Irvin' s family are the only ones to approach him for money. It seems like he has a grudge against someone in particular and he's taking it to the public.

    I come from a close family. They need it, I got it, they can have it. They don't have to earn my support. That's how family is supposed to work.

    The game only changes if you change the game. If, you were giving before the extra dollars you will continue to do so afterwards. People who give, do so despite their economic situation. What Mike seems to be describing is, he wasn't a giving person before he came into money so, it's become a burden because, it's not inherent.
