Smyth retired? What is he, like 25?

Retiring simply means that he isn't competing anymore. It happens ALL THE TIME in sports. The average NFL player is in the league for three years, meaning many NFL players retire by the time they are 24-25. It's really no different in our sport. How many guys/gals give it a go right out of college, only to realize that they lack the structure and support to make it as a professional?
