no offense taken...and while I completly see your point, I think your overlooking what your local SEMI-PRO NPPL team(TCP MACHINE) has to offer...most of those guys have been playing together for years, and some of them have even broken into the pro ranks, even if it was a hired gun situation or not...and as far as skill level goes, I don't see many local teams or teams from out of town teaching them any lessons when they visit/scrimmage.
Now as far as bringin a PRO team to put on a clinic, I agree that a Pro team would bring a bigger draw/crowd...but I'll keep my weekend practices against my SEMI-PRO team here and all I have to pay is to play that day, their already here and there always ready to lend some advice, whether it's Gabe answering snake questions, or Rick helping you out with playing MID...those guys are always willing to help you get better @ no cost!!!
in ending all I will say is this... M-E-T-A-L!!!
