marty D BS: Are the Olympics worth it? (50) RE: BS: Are the Olympics worth it? 05 Dec 01

Well testy anonymous GUEST, a lot of dumb people have been suggesting that because of the abuses of amateur status, that's EXACTLY what might simplify things. Virtually all the top athletes in each event have been funded under the table for years now, and if that's not 'professional' I don't know what is.

It seems the only people who REALLY feel the Games are worth it are the competitors and the thousands of IOC members who are on the payroll. They get a LOT of nice trips every year.
