Oh, boy:

Does anyone else agree that this is about as dumb as televised poker or arm-wrestling (thanks for those ESPN)? I think the idea of "professional [insert verb]" is getting out of hand.

Whats next, Professional Genital Flogging?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell
the difference.

thats pretty funny I wonder who would watch it?


I doubt that many true gamers would watch it! After all... True gamers don't have time to watch T.V.!

as dumb as televised poker


Poker is a far more skilled sport than most. You're right in a way, in that it is televised badly - ie, it tends to show only the exciting bits and not most of the play, but the coverage of the final tables for the WSOP etc is quite good.

Not that I get ESPN, but we do get the occasional rebroadcast.

I happen to think coverage of any game where people stop every twenty seconds for a chat to be dumb, but American Football seems to have taken off despite that.

I don't personally think it will change many peoples views of gaming if it does become telvised...
I used to watch games master etc etc and loved watching the playoffs>tho I must admit I prefered watching the news section of such programs to see what was gonna be relesed. But my wife who does not play video games would not watch it...........so my verdict is if ya don't like gaming now then why are ya gonna watch it on TV.

Mind you I like sex too but my wife won't let me watch that on tv either.....so my verdict is if ya wife don't like sex now then watch it on TV
