    Regardless of all the bullshit, they are students and should not be paid.
    Would you pay highs cool athletes? They should not go to college to play
    sports. Schools should not exploit them, but lets face it, people are
    assholes. They should keep the scholarship if they are injured, and they
    should be given care. Coaches shouldn’t be paid so fucking much either. But
    in the end they are students. The same stuff happens in high school sports,
    minus all the money making. They are passed in classed simply so they are
    allowed to play.

    I’m surprised you didn’t bring up the lawsuit out of Northwestern that
    ruled that NCAA players had the right to unionize
    

  5. TheFreakazoid0720 says:

    The solution is NBA’s DLeague. Soon enough every NBA team will have its own
    affiliate team, and DLeague players’ salaries will increase

    There are: Court Cases, Documentaries, Movies, News Stories & 100’s of
    reports on this. YET every year the shit continues. But people will Boycott
    D & G because they said something they didn’t like. People are the fucking
    problem.

  7. Sean Thompson says:

    5:16 is the worst. That’s SO fucked up

  8. mcr2124 says:

    YES YES YES!!!!!! I’ve been waiting for this report and it was everything I
    hoped it would be! Awesome job!

  9. Debra Alleyne says:

    Other college students can have part time jobs, they don’t have time to get
    one.

  10. Chris Atwater says:

    I don’t get it, this is on HBO but it’s censored?

  11. TheLexy31 says:

    why are people even interested in kids playing sports, watch the NBA.

  12. ljmasternoob says:

    I’m going to make an angel with all my medical bills!

  13. Liam Keane says:

    That’s America for ya a big fucking joke 

  14. Alexandre Jouan says:

    Cut me a break… no one make them sign those LOI.

    You re not happy go get student loans…

    most of us work while in college and also have to balance a messy schedule

  15. D Sanchez says:

    John Oliver, why are you so “awesome”?

  16. Dolan Khan says:

    Okay, I know some things are out of your hands, but it’s getting annoying
    how many clips are not available to view here in the UK. (Hola it is…)

    You know what’s funny though? For all that shit North Carolina did about
    bumping up their students’ GPA, the NCAA still hasn’t done ANYTHING to
    them: no violations, no suspensions, no bans from postseason play, NOTHING!
    That’s another severe problem with the NCAA, they’re not consistent. Ohio
    State players sell their own memorabilia to get tattoos, and they get a
    bowl ban. Miami brings recruits on yachts, and they get a 2 year bowl ban.
    North Carolina legitimately cheats to get their football and basketball
    players eligible to play, and they get, you guessed it, NOTHING! Not even a
    slap on the wrist, like, say, putting them on probation, no not even that.

    I want a never ending gif of that money snow angel

    *Slavery in America*
    *A **#Reaction*

    Sadly, slavery in the United States has not been eliminated, it has only
    evolved. Initially people were slaves for life, now they are only slaves
    while they are most useful and in their prime.
