You do not have to be a ranked pro on APPA. To play on a pro team.
There are and have been plenty of pro players who where picked up with either no rank or very low ranks.
Also. Only the PSP uses APPA. Leaving all your NPPL, MILLENIUM, ECT pro players with possibly no APPA rank.
There you go.
They call me "DOC"
