You name the sport, and it has it's Babies. There isn't a professional sport that doesn't have a whiner. And what classifies a sport as
professional? Is it because one rich white guy says so? He owns a few more teams than the other guy, so now it means that cricket isn't professional,
or badmitten, or horeshoes. Does it matter the compexity? Does it matter how many people play?
Surely not. But with the influx of increasingly large salaries, American sports at least have taken a dive. Sports "stars" are becoming more famous
than political figures, people that wield the power to change the world with a spoken word.
How many times will we have to see these children crying over money?
I used to be like most of you, I loved baseball, not really too fond of football, but I was a fan of the Cowboys back in their superbowl days when
they were on top of the game.
Drugs, both steroid and more hardcore drugs, bad behavior, and again, money have corrupted our stars and our idols from a once revered state to a
puddle of corruption and greed.
I am tired of the strikes, of the players getting Millions of dollars to PLAY A GAME. It's one thing to adjust for inflation, but I have no interest
anymore in any professional sport. Athletes are "juiced up" and greedy. Now before you go flaming this thread, I know that not all athletes are like
this, but the majority have taken root, and the line is now blurred.
I used to look up to you when I was a kid, now what do I have to look up to? A monkey for a prez, and a retirement system that will be non-exsistant
by the time I am ready to quit.
