It's not wrong for Professional teams to distribute heavy $$ to refs then right?
How you equate those two...I don't know, besides you being painfully stupid.
Players should be allowed to skip college and go straight to the NFL to make their money, if they can. If not, let college football be their grounds to develop. Forcing them to pay for free (essentially) and risk career ending injury is silly. Colleges should also not be able to sell ANYTHING that relates to the player, no jersey with numbers on them, no pictures, no nothing without the player getting a cut of some sort, period. A scholarship is nice and all, but how many of these kids don't even bother to get their degree? The reason being college football is a FORCED stopping point before jumping to the pros. Take away the "forced" and let college football rest on its own merits or pay the kids relative to the risk they take and the money they bring in. Eventually there's going to be a lawsuit on antitrust grounds that will eliminate the requirement of any time in college football/time after highschool requirement by the NFL. The NCAA should jump ahead of it or just wait to fall victim to it.
