Eh, I wonder how much that would really play into anything. Yeah, they are from the same country, but I woul dbe pretty surprised if just having a guy from your country in the system would change your plans about retirement. I suppose if he is on the fence I could see this maybe pushing toward playing, but I think that it would be miniscule. Now, if he were related or something like that and he wanted to play with his son/nephew/brother/cousin or whatever, I think that would be more of a draw to stick around.
