Why is watching people kick a ball around better?

Soccer is too long and there's too little action for the time spent.
Football is still my fav, but its dying a slow death and won't be here much longer given that it's fundamentally a gladiator sport.
Baseball and golf are simply awful and about the most boring thing I can think off.
Basketball has sucked since MJ retired, and there isn't a single player in the league that i'd want to root for (quite the contrary).
Tennis is fun to watch at the highest levels, but the new generation is far from the greats of the past (who are in their mid thirties) and there is a huge talent drop off.
Boxing/MMA are in death spirals of concussions/doping and corruption.

Professional sports is probably at a low point in US history if you look at things objectively. Despite the millions of dollars that are being generated, the quality of the product has never been worse.

Can video games be a replacement? Sure, why not. It's weird for old foggies like me, but its just as silly watching grown men "triumph by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big "H"".

Playing sports ( real sports, not **** like darts) promotes social interaction and a sense of community while maintaining a health lifestyle.

Watching some ****ing sperg playing Dota because he's mastered it by playing it for 18 hours a day, because his generation of parents would rather have that than actually parent, is a **** stain on society. On the plus side, I guess these cretins won't re-produce anyway.

But whatever..

I'm sure 100 years ago people said this exact same **** about real sports

You do not have the physical and mental abilities to be a pro player. The incentive to watch someone play Dota vs football is the exact same thing

The reason pro athletes are so good is because...they spend all day every day working at their craft. Just because one is a video game autist and the other is a football autist doesn't really change much except for the fact that one has been around for 70 years and the other has been around for like 5

In my book starsiege tribes capture the flag can't be beat as an esport. it was the perfect game to show off skill and team work. It also was fast paced enough to be exciting to watch.

i enjoy top tier competitiveness in any form

physical sport, digital gaming

i think its a little tough for traditional sports or popular american sports to keep up with interactive technology, where as 'esport' gaming is fundamentally built around an interactive community

over time they will pry equal out as far as viewership

So what you are saying is I should respect your choices for sports entertainment because you envy being a big black guy?

I reject the notion that watching sports is in anyway equivalent to encouraging a healthy lifestyle or playing them. My fat grandpa spent saturday watching college football and every sunday watching the NFL. And I never saw the point. He didn't play in college. I don't even think he played in high school. And he never used watching football as a social activity to invite people over and watch the games with him.

Watching others play a game is still watching others play, whether its physically intensive or not. I think anyone who does a lot of it is wasting their time, no matter if the game is physically intensive or not. Trying to claim respect because your game is physical and traditional and therefore more worthy is kind of pathetic.

I will watch hockey if it's on, but other than that, watching a 'real' sport generally does nothing for me except make me wish I was out running around and playing

some esports are fun for me to watch (especially dota) because I can really appreciate the level of individual skill, teamwork and strategy going on. Same as with hockey really!

will very much be encouraging my kids to play real, physical team sports though, as I think that's extremely important for social development if nothing else

How are sports better then esports?

esports are just the highest tier of play of a game you probably play? what middle aged loser still plays football regularly? You can't justify the risk of injury when you've got a full time job to back to.

I find it pathetic that old codgers still try to hold on to the last dying gasps of life. Die already.

ignorance is bliss


pro gamers have incredible innate abilities for the games in which they compete, such as multi-task capacity, twitch skills, coordination, reaction time, etc

to say that all you would need is time is hysterical, especially considering your body couldn't even keep itself running, let alone well enough to compete at an elite level of anything

I certainly lump sports and esports together.

In the end, it's still just a game. You know, something you play.

Until those skills are applied practically, relevance?

Your precision, decision making, reaction time, game knowledge and mechanical abilities would never reaach that of a professional player, regardless of your time commitment. For one, you are a Kruger Dunning case study and would never be able to grasp the high level mindgames. Secondly you are too old to be able to react as fast as pro players

Sorry to burst your bubble
