Pro

I think professional sports is a waste of people's time, because the results do not matter at all in the long run. Sure, you might feel a little happy right after your team wins, but overall, it will not matter. I think that it wastes your time from doing more productive things, such as working or thinking intellectually.

Professional sports is not a waste of time... People can choose to not watch it if they decide that it is.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro claimed that "working or thinking 'intellectually'" is more productive than achieving peace of mind. Pro also made it clear that his idea was no more than his opinion. Con was able to provide an argument.
