Troy makes a good point (summarizing) about union interference with other sports in comparison to soccer.

Nevertheless, I must interject a little surprise at the point made by him and Michael in favor of soccer: “One doesn’t have to be 7’4″ or 285lbs. to play”/”it does not require 325-pound linemen or 7 foot 10 inch centers.” As if there’s something wrong with specialization and the division of labor.
