What would happen if you took money out of sport?

Ok so this is impossible in the times we live in but what do you think would be the result of pulling the big money out of sport? Sport has in some ways moved away from the once honerable pursuit that it once was to something much different. Do you think we would still see Tiger Woods, Valentino Rossi and Roger Federer dominating like they do? Money brings so many positves to the table but at the same time whenever you hear of another victory or record being broken you wonder about the lines that might have been crossed to get there. There are a lot of sports out there that continue to prosper even without the huge financial incentives to players, you don't hear about them but they are there.. Maybe when you take the money off the table then you find out who the real champions are.

I think that you mean "sports" with an s right? Take the big money from these teams with seemingly unlimited resources and the field would be alot more diverse i would say. You cant take talent away from riders, but take the technology that makes them at least half of what they are, and see just how many races they win back to back, or what the corner speeds look like then, or how long they can make a tank of fuel last, and just how much tyre management that they have.

Basically, if you pull all of the money out of it then for example the super bikes, it would just be a group of men doing track days on their beloved pocket rockets.

Money makes the world go round, but everyone (the "big" boys) is scared of putting the money where their mouth is..
