I don't get the wording in Schefter's post, he's working as an orderly in Canada? The guy has a medical degree from McGill.
From what I read he hasn't done his residency yet, so while he is a doctor he can't practice medicine yet, or something like that. I think he was planning on completing that after his career.
I don't know the official training path a doctor must take, but if TV shows have taught me anything it's that residents don't get a lot of sleep and there is no way he would be able to train as a professional athlete at the same time. On the plus side of being a resident though, apparently you get to spend a lot of time in supply closets with sexy nurses.
With the right economic system, we can have 30 healthy, competitive franchises all with affordable ticket prices. Frankly all of this is about the fans.
