Dose sport play to much a part in Australian life?

I accept to debate affirmative for the given resolution as stated in the previous round, not the topic. Even though its not really a resolution. I propose rewording to: 'Sport plays too big a part in the average Australian's life.'

Definitions are unnessecary, so long as my opponent does not use semantics.

State your case.

Sport plays too big a part in the Australian life due to the fact that it is now interfering with the overall effectiveness and operation of our work. Compare Australia to Texas. Both areas have populations of about 20 million. Both have a similar economic layout. Both are Western style, modern civilisations. The biggest difference between the two of us is that Texas has 6 national sports teams whereas Australia has 80. Both of us should have the same amount of sport teams since we are identical in all regards. The reason why we don't is not because Texas lacks sporting capabilities, its because Australia has gone overboard with too many sports. Its become primary entertainment to the point where we sacrifice all else for the sake of it. The first Tuesday of November is traditionally Melbourne cup day. Its a horse race, not uncommon, but what is rather stunning is that the entire state of Victoria declares a public holiday to take time off work to see the races. This is only case where this happens in the entire world. Everywhere else, people have the decency and common sense to recognise it as a simple race, and not to use it as an excuse to reduce work efficiency.
Sport is really starting to drag Australia down. Melbourne being called the worlds sporting capital is an insult, not a compliment. In essence, sport is playing too big a part in Aussie lives.

I hope to hear from my opponent.
