It also makes it possible to watch any sports event in half the actual elapsed time. Well, maybe not rugby or football/soccer, but the latter is best watched on slow fast forward.
I definitely disagree with you on this point.

It's a waste of the airwaves to broadcast professional sports. People should play and enjoy - watching a bunch of other people play (and talking about them as 'we', as though they even knew you existed) is pretty pathetic. The pundits before and after every event? Feeding them is a waste of food - especially now as they quote asinine statistics like "this is the most points scored between 13:00 and 15:30 in almost a week" as computer stat lookup is added to their repertoire of audio-sputum.

Watch them games, as recordings, in half the time? Delete *.* would be much more enjoyable and a service to humanity.

Oh - did I mention I don't care for professional sports?
