That's how every sport is, more money and publicity attracts better talent. I know it's hard to emotionally accept the fact that your "heroes" aren't the best, but get over it.
What an ignorant statement. Competition evolves and gets better in every sport. The old guard losing to the new doesn't take anything away from what they accomplished in their time. If it worked that way everybody would suck but the current champions.
