Why are all of these people living in America but competing for other countries?
Several members of the men's soccer team live and play professionally in Europe. One of the stars of the men's volleyball team (last name Stanley maybe?) plays professionally in Russia, according to the commentator yesterday. I'm sure there are others.Who would that be???
X2Some of the countries offer financial support to athletes that they couldn't get in the US.
Have you seen the contracts that are being offered by some of the European countries?I"m not really talking about Basketball, I'm talking about other sports that aren't real profitable for the players.
The most important reason that they cannot make the team......THE AREN'T AMERICANSOne thing that I haven't seen mentioned- Some of these athletes can't make the American team because they aren't good enough so they represent their 'home' country where they can because there aren't as many good athletes in that particular sport.
