College Board members strongly claimed that college athletes will never be paid for a salary to play for their schools. College athletes are easily awarded a scholarship worth $15,000 - $25,000 or more per year, plus a career after college that can be worth a million dollars over a lifetime. Additionally, the athletes receive all kinds of perks while they are in college, like staying at fancy hotels and being seen on national TV. It’s hard to put a price tag on all of that.

Which of the following, if true, most severely weakens the argument presented above?

A. It is very difficult to put a numeric value on exactly how much an athlete is worth to a college.
B. Certain college sports generate millions of dollars for college athletic programs. It’s estimated that the university gains $70,000 per year in revenue per scholarship player. The actual number should actually be higher.
C. All those millions of dollars from TV contracts and ticket sales only help athletic departments balance their bottom line.
D. The NCCA doesn’t allow the universities to sell a college football jersey with a player's name on it, but they will sell the jersey with the player's number on it.
E. Amateurism means that one plays strictly for the enjoyment of the sport, not the remuneration.
