Re "College athletes could make big bucks under plan" (Sports, June 14): I recently read the article that debates whether college athletes should be paid or not. I think college athletes should not be paid. Their payment is getting a full-ride scholarship which includes tuition and often books and housing. That is a lot of payment in my opinion.
Just one example: at UC Davis, the tuition and living expenses estimate about $33,000 a year. On top of that, they are often given many other benefits such as tutors and academic help. They also get to play for the school and be on a team and have uniforms and all the fun that brings.
These things are their payment. They should not get additional money.
