No shiite, beternal. I don't know how anyone with international knowledge could think sports are an "American thing".

Maybe these athletes that are 'helped` to gain their qualifications should be made to pay some of their mega salaries back into the school system. Or is that too much to ask?

University of Alabama football program brought in ~$130.5 million in 2013, with $19.4 million of that being profit.

Every home game has an economic impact on Tuscaloosa of about $25 million.

So, the football program is not costing the University anything. It is, in fact, a money maker for the University.
