Video games are better to spectate than sports. Broadcasters have known this for decades, doing what they could to compensate.

Ignoring the petulance of some of the comments here (there's no point addressing them) the reception the article got isn't entirely unreasonable. Wu speaks with an undeserved sense of authority, comes across as a smug supremacist hand waving away criticism. She uses the article as a platform to broadcast her frustrations and masquerades it as a piece on culture. She can decide not to take her audience seriously if she likes, but sulking over the response is demanding you have your cake and eat it, too.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
