    Who is going to fund these full time contracts? The taxpayer?
    There is nothing stopping these players from becoming professionals, assuming they have the talent. Some of these guys are already professionals.

    This is a great idea, but my question is who would be putting up the money to pay the players? The government, the community? Doesn’t seem the petition makes that clear.

    Sooooo….who pays the salaries?

    Would the petitioners like to suggest how they are paid? Would they also explain how this could impact their careers with overseas clubs?
