Should College Athletes Be Paid?

Should college athletes be paid? Or is it enough that they receive a scholarship and opportunity to take their shot at elite for a possible multimillion-dollar career in pro sports? And should schools be allowed to rake in enormous profits on the backs of the effort, sacrifice and talent of their athlete?  In this episode of The Darkside of Elite, former NFL lineman Jeremiah Sirles (Chargers, Vikings, Panthers, Bills) makes the case to allow student-athletes to profit from their names, images, and likenesses. And even more important: To endorse brands, monetize social media and sell private lessons. Listen as Jack probes the depths of the College/University slavery system, and what Sirles is doing to stop it.
