NCAA Survey on Gambling

A recent study funded by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) could have implications for educational initiatives designed to raise awareness and prevent problem gambling behaviours.

If athletes were actually paid for their hard work in college, they wouldn't feel as much pressure to gamble for money. It's ridiculous that they aren't compensated for what they bring in to their university programs.

I think parents should be involved and helping their kids with due respect on this issues. I have seen that even minors can now played at online casino and they should explain the consequences of things with their kids action so that some problem can be solve in their own guidance.

I absolutely agree with Benji. Universities do give high incentives and allowances to their athletes. With that said, this only makes college athletes unaware of the effects of gambling since they mostly expect for financial support from their universities. It's indeed easier to give up money that was never earned through hard work.
