haha i dont know any but once i found out how it worked i formed preconceived notions about its athletes.....basically in polo it goes like this, teams are made up of 3 dudes. 1 of which puts up the money for his team, and pays the other 2 gentlemen to be on his team for that game. Each game he has to pay them again. Usually they get around a cool milly+ for a single game. SO a rich dude hires other rich dudes to play for him. The two opposing rich dudes also put up the pot for the games... now back to your thread so youre more saying that it kills their social creativity? well one thing is for sure, money does not buy happiness. Im talking true happiness, and contentment. Sure it can provide a level of security and short term happiness via material possessions, but have you ever wondered how the poorest of the poor in european, asian/south american countries etc etc are regarded as happier and less stressed out than the developed world? If people stopped looking for happiness and realized that its not hiding from them and that its a decision, the world will be a better place for all. But alas. Kids have shit like lady gaga, MTV, and Nike helping them grow up....couple that with being served life on a silver platter, the future generations well....were doomed.
