They get paid what they are worth.
So you think it's fair that colleges and universities should be able to make millions on them from various sources and all they get is an education.....how are the players getting their fair share of that. Don't misunderstand, I'm not in favor of them getting rich while being a college student. But I have absolutely no problem with them getting 5-10 k per year.
