Need quick answer before Lewis makes his decision public.

Reports alledge that Lewis will announce his 2013 team decision tomorrow. Do you think its ungrateful to leave the team that raised him since day one?

I think so. He should stay and be grateful to McLaren. Thoughts?

Its a business. Just because somebody recruits you doesn't mean that you should do the same work for less money once others are interested. Look at any other pro sport. When the contract is up, let the bidding begin.

Some are are willing to take a pay cut to get get a championship. They will leave a team that was good to them but is never going to get a title. So they move. Lebron did it. It seems to have worked out for him.

In America we have child labor laws that don't allow this. David Beckham was with the Manchester United team since he 13-14. Then he left to play in the US for what ever L.A.'s soccer team is. The European soccer teams scout the peewee leagues. Private school them and have set practices that more like a boarding school. then when they get good enough they are put on the roster.

Athletes have a shelf life so they must market themselves and take the best opportunities available to them. It is a business after all and there is no reason that anyone has to leave on a sour note.

Maybe he would rather have a pay day than win. Rossi left a winning team to "develop" another bike.

Kobe Bryant not 10yrs old but they obviously had connections with his dad and had been watching him for a long time in HS Lakers traded their best Center for him and he didn't do anything yet. seems like a good move now don't it?
