The State of Calfornia just passed a bill that would allow college athletes to get paid off of their likeness. Of course, this won’t happen until it’s approved by The NCAA but there is one former college superstar who thinks this is a horrible idea. And that’s Tim Tebow who went on ESPN’s First Take this morning and passionately defended his point of view on why he thinks this is a bad idea:
Tim Tebow isn’t a fan of athletes getting paid in college ?? agree or disagree? @PodThat

Many disagreed with the former Heisman trophy winner:
I’ve never seen someone so passionately defend the idea that people aren’t allowed to market themselves and make money on their likeness. It’s quite an accomplishment by Tebow

Where do you stand? Do you think College athletes should get paid? Or does that take away from their amateurism.
