Most people aren't looking far enough down the road about this.

Start paying Football players and it's only a matter of time until a suit is brought by a Female Athlete who wants a piece of the pie.
And to be fair it is a valid argument. Other sports put in as much work as football players, they represent the school in the same way, they deserve equal share. That said school cost like 15k a year, just off tuition they are making 60k for 4 years, plus reaping the benefits of getting a degree, which is helpful after football, and for those that don't stay 4 years they are getting credits towards a degree that don't go away. You can't put a number on the value of the education they get. They get room and board, books etc all stuff I'd sign my life away to get if I was gifted enough to be an athlete. Plus you can't put a price on walking out at WB to all the crazy bottle throwing fans cheering you on.
