  • Pro athletes should not be allowed

    1st argument- It is not there job and they are not getting paid to do it

    2nd argument- From the moment the Olympics end swimmers and gymnasts start training for the Olympics in four years whereas basketball players ignore it and start training for there next season. They don’t focus primarily on the Olympics.

    3rd argument- They shouldn’t be aloud because it is creating an imbalance in the Olympics

    4th argument- In 1896 the rule was that the games were meant for amuteur athletes, why would they change the rules now.

    5th argument- Nobody will want to watch the Olympics because it is so obvious who will win, so they will have to close them and it will ruin it for the athletes who only focus on the Olympics.

    6th argument-Amateur athletes don't usually come from a very wealthy family and the one chance they have to make money they need to capitalize. The pro athletes are already have a lot of money and the ads and winnings wont boost their wealthines.

  • They should be alowed

    They should be allowed because of many reasons for example professional athletes work very hard and deserve to play in the biggest sporting event. They also practice a lot. The Olympics is also a big deal for many countries. If the pros play it can get others hyped up for the next one.

  • We should give it our best

    We should be putting our best in the Olympic games so that we can bring home the gold medal. Though it is a chance for amateurs to prove themselves, we need to have some pros in there as our foundation, because amateurs are not as good. The definition of an amateur is one who engages in a pursuit, study, science, or sport as a pastime rather than as a profession. This means that our contestents would have to be all rookies! And who wants that?? NO ONE, that's who! We shouldn't want to have a bunch of experienced people playing for us

  • The Pros Have Rights

    You shouldn't be able to say someone cannot compete in a competition if they meet all the standards. They can do whatever they want and no one should be able to stop them. If they chose not to compete then they don't have too, but if they want to they should have that say in their decision to compete on the highest stage.

  • Professional Athletes are not the only good players

    Kids in amateur leagues need a chance to shine and pro coaches could scout them and get a better idea of how good they are. Also, the kids need to experience how hard it is to take pressure in the pro leagues because in the amateur leagues there is much less pressure than the pro ones.

  • Its a Unfair advantage

    If you put NHL players in the Olympics it would be unfair for the minors, we all know NHL players are amazing, but the minors may not be as good. The teams with more minor players are going to get crushed, by the teams with more professional players on it.

  • They Can get injured

    How they get injured is usually by playing games that you don't have to like the Olympics and if the NHL or pro athletes get injured they Can't play their regular season games in the NHL or even worse playoff games. So thats why i think pro alt-lets should not go to the Olympics

  • No pros should not be alowed to compete in olympics

    Why would pros be alowwed in olympics its just not fair we allready know there amazing and we allready know what they can do and acomplish they should give the minors or others a chance to succsed the pros are pros for a reason we allready know someone who plays a pro sport is good and maybe somone diddnt make a pro sport but wants to try and win the olympics then somone came along who DOES play a pro sport they would obviously beat them or most likely i just say we should give other a chance to go to the olympics because pros are pros at what they do and there obviously really good so competting with people who just arnt there yet isint fair and would be a waste of breath i say stick to the pros and give us a chance

  • Its not fair we cant compete aginst them

    They are prs at what they do and we are just mortals wich makes it unfair and not right like i said there pros and were not its phisically inpossible to beat them we do it for pride and joy they do it for fame and power whats so fun about the olympics when there in it we already know what they can do how about what mortals can do its un fair.And so not right they take the pride and joy out of every thing

  • Changes the motivation for competition

    As a former amateur track and filed athlete, I remember when my only motivation was, that I didn't NEED to be paid to love the sport. Not that pros don't love what they do, but as an amateur, I was focused on testing my abilities against other well prepared athletes, and discovering the limitations of human ability. The penultimate of that testing, was judged amongst the world's best, and other "like-minded" athletes on a world wide stage of the Olympic Games! No agents, no signing agreements, commercial deals, just GUTS and GLORY, and the satisfaction of accomplishing something that few others would be able to achieve, without the motivation of possible financial gain! If I benefited financially, after the fact, from what I had accomplished, GREAT, but I could go to my grave with nothing more than the sheer knowledge that I was amongst the best in the world! Today, very few athletes can experience that, the way people like Jesse Owens, or Jim Thorpe, Eric Liddell, Rafer Johnson, Wilma Rudolph, Babe Dedrickson, Bob Mathias, and other past amateurs did! Even if they were financially rewarded, with endorsement deals, for their accomplishments, afterwards, it was not something, that they heralded greater than simply just being apart of competition. I believe that athletes of today's Olympic games, are cheated out of the TRUE glory of Amateurism,…, solely for the love of their sport, and knowing that they represented their country well!

  • Sports for the right reasons!

    The Olympics should be free from Professionals that compete for money, look what's happening at English football and the damage it is doing in a free market with little commercial Goverance thus the best players will gravitate to where the money is which is a major factor in English Football being diluted in skills.

  • Money and big business have destroyed the concept of the Olympics

    Why not just call it the world cup of the NHL, because they are they only teams that will end up playing for medals. Amateurs will be crushed. If I want to watch professional players, I watch the NHL, not some travesty of a competition claiming to bring nations together

  • No professional athlete should ever be allowed or have been allowed to participate in the Olympics

    The Olympics were originally established to recognize the best athlete before there were professional sports. The integrity of the Olympics should remain the same as originally formed. If you are a professional athlete getting paid large amounts of money to play a sport, then you forfeit your opportunity to participate in any Olympic competition. Let the REAL athletes who devote all their time and effort into their sports compete among themselves. Professional athletes stay out of the Olympics. The IOC should be sanctioned for ever allowing professional athletes to participate.
