you mean like all the major league sports? This isn't any worse than that. Draft a kid before he gets done with college, then he gets injured in the first season can't play any more. it's bye-bye, see you later, hope things work out.
Then the whole energy drink thing. It's not any worse for you than alcohol or smoking or for that matter half the foods we eat now a days. It's like everything use moderation, I don't realy have any sympathy for people who can't figure that out.
I agree. The difference is that Jim Beam and Marlboro aren't allowed to sponsor events like this.....
Lots of 15 year olds are easily manipulated and hooked. I don't really think that marketing junk food to kids is OK either, but that is just me.
