Kinda like the idea of Burroughs competing in an Iran event and spreading some International love. He gets a lot of love from the country so should take advantage of that support and show them some love too. Great chance for diplomacy. Just not sure I like the set up of this one though.
Not sure I like the idea of a "Club" hiring outside studs to represent them in an event. Don't really care who is doing it but if they persons not on your regular roster of competitors for the past year they probably shouldn't represent you in a major club competition if they are from your country or from another one. I get other clubs have done this before but I just don't like calling it a club event if they have people that haven't even been on your club for anything before. If it's an all-star event then just say it's county vs country or a team vs a team. If your calling it a Club event then it should be a club vs a club it hired guns.
Also, not sure I'm a fan of Burroughs agreeing to be on an Iranian team that will likely face a US based team (Titan Mercury) for the title. JB could turn the tides enough to actually give the Iran team the win over a US team. Sure it's not his club, but when it comes to it helping another countries team beat an American team just doesn't seem right.
