    That's a stupid way to define a sport, that it 'must offer health benefits". That's like saying that something is only considered edible if it has calories.

    I'm pretty tired of people trying to pretend like video gaming is somehow anything like a real sport. It isn't, please stop kidding yourself. but it isn't a sport, and "esport" is just a stupid name people came up with. Professional gaming is a fine name, competitive gaming is a fine name, but comparing it to a sport is dumb. TYou could say "Well sports are intense and require skill, and so does Starcraft" well yes, but being a doctor is intense and requires skill and I wouldn't exactly call operating on people a sport.
    Why does ESPN cover Poker ? Can we honestly call fishing a sport?
