Today is the start of March Madness. The NCAA College Basketball Tournament. It involves 64 teams and will go on for the next month.
You may, or may not watch it. That’s fine. 140 million people will. It is also expected that $9 billion dollars….not a misprint…$9 million dollars will be bet on this tournament. It also generated $7.5 billion dollars…….again not a misprint….$7.5 billion dollars in TV revenue. There will coaches that make over $4 million dollars a year to coach athletes to win a championship that will give their university international recognition. College athletes will not be allowed to make a single cent.
To help out with this argument, I invited…well uploaded John Oliver from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver to present a case as to why they should be. Listen below.
Do you Agree or Disagree that college athletes should be paid?
