As of now, they must be 19 years old and one year removed from high school graduation". from espn.com. you just lowering the age by one year is not going to make a diffrence and just because you lower the age dosent mean youre ready

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct is a tie because both were respectful, etc. Spelling and grammar is a tie because there wasn?t much of a difference between the two. As for most convincing arguments, this is difficult. Especially when Con quoted a source that proves Pro?s point. However, the reason I am giving the most convincing arguments to Con, is because of this argument, ?but even if you have good grades they still shouldn't lower the age for players. just because you practice with the team doesn't mean your going to get better you will be siting on the bench wondering why you can't play in the game ? That argument is what made him win the most convincing arguments to me. If anything, the kids can still practice and get better on their own and then join the league when they are better instead of wasting their time. As for most reliable sources, it?s a tie. Nobody cited anything (Con quoted something without any citation, he could of just made it up for all we know).
