sport - an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc. If you tell me that activity that only requires skill and no physical prowess is not a sport, then table tennis, pool, golf, etc cannot be called sports? The "promoting healthy" is utter bullshit. Every pro is singing about how they like to go to the gym and how it helps develop their skill. Furthermore, videogames prevent a plenty of mental diseases, such as Alzheimer's.

Both table tennis and golf are literall exercise you monkey. "Every pro is singing about how they like to go to the gym and how it helps develop their skill" Yeah and they can do that because they are pros. Most people that aspire to be pros dont live healthy. Lets say kid A want to be professional golfer. His training requires him to do physical activity which involves most of his body, he is also outside breathing cleaner air (compared to inside). If he fails he will be in overall good physicall shape. Kid B wants to be esports pro. He will sit all day and all night behind PC. Only part of his body he will use is his dominant arm and fingers. He will sit most of the he will be inside all the time. If he sunk all his time into playing game X so he can be pro not only he cannot be in good shape he will probably also ditch school but thats optional but not uncommon when it comes to Esports pros, if he fails he will be in terrible shape. In age of kid obesity going through the roof which one do you think progressive goverment will want to promote? Also as i said govermeant should treat esports players same as normal sports yea deffinetly (which would avoid this shitshow in stockholm) but saying that public should actively see esports players as athletes is laughable and idiotic.

The only reason why any family pushes someone to go pro in anything is because of the financial benefits, if moneys not involved would many pros be top level, go back to when sports where only played buy the rich and wealthy, and everything was amateur. There are multiple events in the Olympics that shouldn't be a sport, in the terms that you've labelled. (Shooting, shot put, javelin, weight lifting, skateboarding, and probably more throughout history.) But I both agree and disagree with both topics

"There are multiple events in the Olympics that shouldn't be a sport " " javelin" are you sure about that one? Also the money part is not really true i know many parents that pushed their kids when they were interested in non profitable sports like greek wrestling there is no money there (not really) but its a sport and society generally likes that. I am not saying that goverment should hinder esports but they also shouldnt promote it as something good. Given the current reality its bad idea.

What does "sport" mean by looking at the dictionary: 'an activity involving physical exertion AND skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.' 'physical exertion', to me, is one of the most important parts of sport. By sitting down and playing games you're not 'being a athlete', you're being a video game player. Also, you could argue that races then should not be considered a sport, but even while racing, the physical effort you need to put is extremely higher then you put when playing video games.

WDYM? FIFA owns every respectable competition and people that dont want to play dota 2 can play the original dota mode for free online. Edit: not to mention dota 2 is f2p

They dont own football but no prestigious event is held without them so no elite events without them.

Just like UEFA can host a football tournament, Dota 2 can host an eSports tournament.

Bruh that makes no sense. You have to look at esports as a whole.

This decision is pretty stupid, yes. But it was the Police that made the decision, not a specific polititian. The Police have a list of exceptions to the current "entry ban" due to the pandemic and esports is not in that list. But I agree with you, it was a bad decision.

If u care so much about esports being called a sport u need to go outside

its not about the label, its about travel rights etc, which now prevents the doto TI from being played in Sweden + prolly the csgo major.

Not to mention that now TI is postponed from August to October, which also probably will ruin season schedule

simple answer: People that watch E-sports usually are young and dont have much money. Thats just it people. Only a few of us 30y olds with a job that keeps this shit alive :D

It's not a sport. But it should be seen just as big as sport.

There is more then just esports that our government fail to grasp. Dont think for a second that they will change their minds.

Because e-sports isn't sports. Sports: an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. Moreover, e-"""sports""" don't nearly bring enough revenue as compared to legitimate sports in Sweden like football,handball, and icehockey

haha "an activity involving physical exertion" you're wrong. You know what Chess is? Where do you make physical exertion there? And it calls SPORT. It dont need to be physical exertion to call something sport.

8. Chess inspires national fervor. Perhaps the peak of sporting pleasure is witnessing your countrymen and women compete for national glory in the Olympics or the World Cup. Chess has similarly fueled people's national imaginations such as when Bobby Fischer challenged Boris Spassky for the World Championship in 1972. At the height of the Cold War, this competition between an American and a Soviet player was watched by millions around the world inspiring (in the U.S.A.) Fischer-mania 5. Chess is recognized as a sport. The International Olympic Committee has recognized chess as a sport. While this acknowledgement falls shy of recognition as an "Olympic Sport" which would merit inclusion in the Games, it is an acknowledgement of the sport-like properties inherent in chess. Maybe get Olympics to recognize csgo as a sport, then you can make shitty posts about Sweden
