Pro vs. pro sounds fair to me. I wonder if other countries used to have crises of conscience over sending their pros out against our college boys.
forgive me ignorance, but do other nations even have college athletics in the form that the US does? i mean all these kids start playing professionally before they are even 18 over there. i wonder if an age limit might not be easier to enforce than an amatuer status. anyway i agree with you. as long as other teams are sending pros we need to send pros to compete.
