European bias

Unresolved: No clear evidence that this has been fixed.

This article is WAY too oriented towards British/European sports. Sorry folks, but NOT EVERYONE IS EUROPEAN. Somebody please add in some American sports, like Baseball, Basketball, American Footbal..... -Gamingboy

If people want more sports in here ... put them in then? People usually contribute what they know or have an interest in.Boomshanka

this article is seriously lacking... seriously eurocentric also. Volleyball, Track & Field, arent even in the list. I was looking for sportsmanship and it linked here. This doesn't link there. The Criticism part II is heavily not NPOV. Dwarf Kirlston 19:03, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)

At the moment the entire article is more or less a non-comprehensive list of sports where professionals exist. I miss a general discussion of the aspects of professionalism in sports. Sorry, for only complaining and not helping out myself. jzeller 22:28, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure what this article is designed to achieve ... comparisons between amateurism and professionalism? historical development? Maybe a clearer definition needs to be provided ...Boomshanka
