I cannot help myself from commenting on one facit of your post. This has been in my Craw actually for years. And I hope this don't come off wrong or fringe on the political boarder as far as church and state are concerned.

At the risk of sounding like Andy Rooney, did you ever notice all the bass anglers thanking God after a big Bass hits the boat? Or asking God to let them win? Or praising God up on the Big stage for his special blessings when they do?

I will not even pretend to speak for the devine creator. But what makes any one person think he's going to pick him out over the other 150 entrants both praying and thanking him for the same thing? Does he then become Gods favorite over the others for that day?

I've personally thanked God for giving me the knowledge, health and means to participate and be successful in things I love to do. Thanked him for the great day and being safe throughout it. But feeling he has personally picked me out for human praise and monetary gain when competing again'st others he loves equally, seems sacraligious.

Also, why even bother calling anything the RCL holds as a professional event? How can they consider their field of anglers to be "top notch" when they limit it to certain boat owners? (I own a Lund so no jealousy stabs please). A trained monkey could enter an RCL event if he could front the cash and a certain boat! I say let Parsons, Keith K, and Kolinski in and let um go to town!

Dennis feel free to use it, and Walleye Express you and alot of other guys out there are the true pros,I also remember when the MWC started and a lot of the truly great fisherman, started out there, along time ago then I guess you could call them legends.Only problem with calling them legends is it makes some of them sound old and some of them are still pioneers and come up with new and differnt wrinkles all the time to catch fish.These guys paved the way, payed there dues and some of them figured out how to make a liveing doing it.And there are still alot of young guys that will make this sport even better in the future as long as they dont lose sight of the past.
As a side note I like the idea to take the best of all the circuits that are out there and hold a tournement to find out who is the best.

I agree with "Fish-Ons" take about the RCL being in its early stages and it will be a while before qualifying will be mandatory. Dan, you also have a good point about B.A.S.S. having qualifying steps to get to the big show. There will always be players that make it to the big leagues in any sport that belong and those that don't belong. I think the RCL is doing a good job at providing a platform for walleye anglers to test their abilities against some of the best competition in the nation. Not too many people would buy the "right" boat, and pony up the money to enter if they didn't think they had the skills to be competitive.

Can you name a Heisman Trophy quarterback that didn't make it the pro's? Or a sixth round pick that went on to be a Superstar?

Good job on the answers!!!!!! My real point was that qualifying or starring at one level doesn't guarantee success at the top level--fishing included.
