Pay The Athletes

In Vox Article “Fair Pay to Play Act,” reporter, Alexia Campbell, covers the decisions behind the newly pass Fair Pay to Play Act. Before this week, the NCAA did not allow athletes to receive payment from their sport. However, according to Campbell’s sources, college sports have turned into multi-mullion dollar business in the past 5 years, and the athletes are not benefiting from any of it. The new law will allow students to be paid for their “hard work and efforts.”

This article was well written. It flowed very well and was easy to follow. The author directed her focus on collegiate athletes and lawmakers. She, additionally, wanted to inform people about the lack of representation collegiate athletes get for their skill.

    I’m just starting to see the conversational tone of Vox:

    “Many people are getting rich from the current setup. In the past decade, coaches’ pay has skyrocketed. The highest-paid head coach in 2018 was Alabama’s Nick Saban, who raked in $8.3 million. Even the lowest-paid coaches in the SEC are making at least $1 million.

    “Individual colleges make a ton of money, too.”

    Vox is also really good with transitions.

    What do you think about “ton of money” and “skyrocketed”?
