Yes, like these guys have said, you'll probably need to know someone who works on that crew or someone who works for the club who can throw your name in the ring. Also, as pro sports collects and tracks more and more stats, being computer literate is must. May not seem like a big deal to younger guys, but it was/is a sharp learning curve for the guys who have been around a while.
