  1. Great that HD puts up $562K. (now that they have some competition)

    That said,
    Baseball, Football and Basketball players.. won't even... yawn.. for any money, that small.

    Face it, the $562k, isn't even a "rounding error" on the books of a NFL or baseball, owner!

    If we want to be in the BIG Sports Leagues....and compete with those other sports,

    The Manufacturers need to step up those purses significantly!
