Do you think sports is glorified way too much in today's society?

Scientists, health professionals, and businessmen are not glorified as much as football, basketball, soccer players. The thing I have to ask is who even cares about sports. Do you think it is given way too much value in today's society?

Yes, sports is over-glorified. How many kids waste their potential on sports, when they could be learning something useful to themselves and to society?

You are supporting all this foolishness when you subscribe to cable TV.

R4, that's a false equvalency, less sports does not mean more war.

Yes, they do have a commonality in that they're both used by older people to channel youthful hormonal excess, but there are other ways to deal with that.

It's an opiate for straight men- along with sex, booze and sometimes weed and other drugs. Males have nothing to do anymore; we evolved hunting, fishing, building, etc. So now you have to keep them drugged.

If only sports were an opiate for straight men only. But we've seen here this week that that's just not the case.

Oh, and I don't subscribe to cable TV.
