It’s not a weird turn. They don’t have the opportunity to get jobs because all their time is spent pursuing their sport.What a weird turn that argument of yours took. You are a funny one Stevens, I'll tell ya. That isn't, nor ever has been what is being discussed in here.
so if they’re adults, and should be treated as such, then why wouldn’t they deserve compensation like any adult would for doing a job?
edit: Or are you boys really saying you want to pretend they are adults so you can rationalize bashing them for not meeting your standards?
