Professional foul?

When Dumbarton last won Scottish football’s top division title, in 1890/91 and 1891/92, we were an amateur team. Turning professional created the first traumas in our long history. Now we’re professional but part-time – and the debate about ‘professionalism’ in sport - however you define that - rumbles on. Last night there was an interesting BBC documentary about the issue (professionalism, not Dumbarton's stresses and strains!)  More information and links here, at my new blog on the SonsTrust site.
