Pros and the Olympics

Does anyone have a problem with professional athletes participating in the Olympics? It bothers me a little, seeing professional b’ball players( and other sports) when our excellent collegiate system could be providing players. I understand the reasoning that the very best should be allowed and that other countries won’t play by the rules. It does seem that the “professional athlete” from the old Soviet Union and East Germany are now relics of the past.
Anyway, I’m enjoying watching the games and hope everyone else is, as well.

  1. does not quite seem right to me. to have pro paid athletes in the olympics. the noble amateur athlete idea and all that have been lost. and those noble amateurs can make plenty of money when it is all over anyway.
