I'd like to know who initially came up with this excuse. It's just so ridiculous. There's nothing substantial to back it up, just pure speculation and the most superficial of logic. You might as well say that all professional heavyweights are practising law or becoming paramedics for all the sense it makes.
Until an ex-NBA or NFL player becomes P4P number three like former soccer player Sergio Martinez became, then the argument holds about as much water as a weight drained JCC jr.
