Reviews about The Business Of Amateurs
My wife and I viewed this during a limited release in Oakland, CA. Really opens your eyes to the world of college sports, especially football and basketball. Both of us having been former athletes, we were intrigued by the plot and wanted to see what the directors had in store. This film continued to leave us scratching our heads as to why more isn't being done to protect the "student-athletes". Do yourself a favor and check it out. You won't be disappointed.
The Business of Amateurs showcases the realities and hypocrisy surrounding the NCAA, through student-athletes' emotional stories of triumph on the field, and the hefty price they are now paying off the field. This film is a much needed, eye-opening and timely wake-up call to all who play, watch, and support collegiate and professional sports. Very well done!
As an avid college football fan, I found this documentary extremely well done and informative regarding the health and well being of the athletes.
Ouch! Sports puts a high price on that "free" college education. In case you think football players are having a great life like it seemed in high school, the answer is: "Not so much."
Great info...especially now that my son has entered collegiate athletics. If you ever thought that college athletes were spoiled and got a "free ride" you should watch this. It will definitely offer you a different perspective.
Here at informative movie. A must see for anyone who loves college sports
Really interesting documentary. As a Brit I didn't actually know anything about College sport in the US prior to the documentary, but a friend recommended it and it was really insightful. Well paced and informed, the writer clearly is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, having experienced the College system first hand playing for USC. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in sports or documentaries in general.
This is a really compelling documentary about the business of big-time college athletics. It covers a fair amount of territory, from the economic inequities of a billion dollar industry that refuses to pay a fair market value to the workers who generate those billions--to the physical risks and ongoing health concerns that players must deal with. The focus is mostly on the big money programs, Division I football and men's basketball. Within that domain it manages to hit on a lot of the key issues--especially from the perspective of the athletes. If you're interested in exploring what the big business of college sports is like from the players' perspectives, ...
