I just looked it up, and I agree.

Unless you count Chess as a sport.

Decorum aside, you still are horribly false.

Poker is played on ESPN, (The Sports Network) and I have a hard time considering that a sport. It seems these days sports are often considered anything that involves competition at all.

Chess is a strategy game. American football is ALSO a strategy game that is likewise significantly influenced by physical prowess - which requires not only other types of intelligence (spatial intelligence; awareness; muscle memory; etc.) but mental toughness in addition to intense athletic conditioning. No flame war necessary, kids. Just cold hard facts.

I would say that the level of thinking and strategy is far more complex in Chess than it is in Football.

Yup, good example. The spelling Bee is also a sport. Those kids are under crazy pressure, and should get paid. They also should get spelling related endorsements.

As you can see in the vid, the spelling bee is hardcore.

That doesn't matter - It doesn't negate any of what I said. It's also a bit naive considering strategy is/can be very complex in football ( http://t0.gstatic.com... ). Players are like chess pieces - each serve a particular function and most operate within specific parameters designated to their respective positions that help achieve specific goals. In fact I could argue that not only is football more exciting but also potentially more challenging considering the game is influenced by so many outside variables and you have to make adjustments.
