The day day that this happen, they will be giving purple hearts and Medal of Honor to, military drone flyers and cyber warfare fighters.
I don't think that's the goal.
E-sports and athletic sports are in no way the same besides the title "sport". Why is it called a sport if its not physical? Because anything with two teams trying to win can be considered a sport.
Chess is a sport too, btw. You just have to use your brain instead of other muscles.
Actually IPL or MLG or one of has a deal with NBC to be broadcasting on TV within 3 years.....It is growing.
I label these types of competitions as clubs... Kind of like chess, polo and the likes. Sure you could technically consider them a sport (I guess), but they just seem like clubs to me.
