Refreshing that there’s very little old man yells at cloud e-sports vibes here so far

Acoustic eSports would be well funny

They’re not playing a game

They’re just judged on the metric of keyboard and mouse usage

I’m with you for the first verse but I’m really struggling to fit your second verse to the music.

I reckon modern teenage life would be an easy sell to my teenage self. Accessibly of porn alone.

Nah they’re eSports.

honestly think if you get angry about whether eSports, darts, snooker, pool etc are a ‘sport’ or a ‘game’ you’re probably the type of person that thinks that the BBC shouldn’t cover women’s football

who cares if it’s a sport or not

sports people are the worst

Think it’s very much ‘not for me cheers though’ but it’s a more noble pursuit than racing the fast cars

People seem to really struggle with the idea something they don’t like can be a sport, which is weird given that rugby has been around for decades now.

I prefer the warm sound you get from vinyl sports.

Who gives a fuck, it’s just a label. It’s like people who get really caught up on whether or not something is post-hardcore or DC emo or midwest crycore.

That said, it probably pisses off the football lads more to say that League of Legends is a sport, so: it’s a sport.

There’s a good explanation on the BBC page. It’s pretty much the same as football except in League the fans aren’t as into cosplay as football fans.

People enjoy to watch it, skill and hard work is involved to be good enough to play competitively so good on them, I guess adding an e before sport makes it distinct from Olympics type sport which is ok

Never thought of it like that, it really is cosplay

Think this is the one where they get old premier league lads who are in their 50s to do 5 a side.

People are going to think that I’m doing “a bit” because I keep bringing it up but you’re right and I’m 100% not kidding.

Yeah, sports for noodle armed NERDDDDDSSSSS!

Football fans always cosplaying as players of their fave football team.
Then there’s the dreaded ‘full kit wanker’
