So, what do people think of Russia's enormous financial support?
I know it is very un-American for the government to support amateur athletes. What do people think about Russia doing so?
I think it's good. Until our wrestlers can make a decent living from wrestling we'll always be right were we are.
Geez, could this be the motivation you need to head back home ?
If they're getting paid wouldn't that make them professional athletes?
There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.
Don't we already have money prizes at most International tournaments?

I don't think it makes a difference anymore. Pros are playing in the Olympics in just about every sport - tennis, basketball, baseball, hockey, etc. You know much those retard snowboarders are making in endorsements?
Yeah, try telling Fadzaev and Karelin they were Amateurs.
