The players have to earn as much as possible during their prime. Pretty much like other professionals in other sports in the US. As far as I know, there are no 'retirement benefits' for Muhammad Ali or Kareem Abdul Jabar or Carl Lewis or Babe Ruth or Jimmy Connors or John McEnroe or even Michael Jordan from the government of USA. They all earned as much $$$ as possible during their prime, proportional to their respective sports... and that's it. The US government does not take care of them until they die or anything...

Oh wow. I see. That's INA gov't for us anyway.

Used to many provincial govt lures athletes from other provinces with the promise of being state employee as well as cold hard cash. It was quite rampant before PON.

Again, I thought INA main forces are not allowed to play in PON?
BTW, when will our IJs (Indonesian Juniors, I mean) be sent to their first international tourney?

By Indonesian Juniors, do you mean the Pratama team? I suspect the Singapore International Series should be a good test...

- XVII PON -- 06 - 17 July 2008
- XXIX OG -- 08 - 24 August 2008
Previous PON was triennial event but since 1996 it had become quadrennial (same with Olympic year) which is so unfavourable time for athletes who absolutely put top focus on Olympic Games.

Sepeaking of PON Tony Gunawan is representing East Java lol........well these Pratama kids....I am looking forward to their development....well but I fear that some of them do the 'curi umur' practice i.e. claiming that they are a few yrs younger

Well, they've passed that so-called anti-age-cheating test conducted by PBSI. Unless they can find some way to manipulate the result, or bribing the testers, I think everything will be just fine.
That test was one of the cause why Seleknas was postponed.
