Causes of American Sports Decline


Isn’t it interesting that now that there are no Americans left in Wimbledon that everyone is wondering what has happened to American tennis. Nick Bollettieri is quick to chime in with his solutions. Two week ago it was what’s wrong with American soccer and Bruce Arena was quick to chime in with his comments. Before that that it was David Stern, commissioner of the NBA on the lack of fundamentals in American basketball. There is a common thread here. There is an old saying that you cannot solve a problem by seeking solutions from those who created the problem! Guys take a look in the mirror.
