Have they gone stark starein' bonkers?

Post by stattointhailand » August 14, 2018, 10:24 pm

Playing bl**dy computer games is to be added to the "sports" at the 2022 Asian Games [-X [-X [-X

At a time when virtually every parent/teacher/social behaviour expert/doctor etc etc is trying to get the kids off the computer/I Pad/I phones etc and get them outside playing sports and other healthy pastimes these loonies are allowed to make this sort of decision :evil:

I've come to accept that synchronised swimming has athletic content, in spite of the exaggerated posing and make up,but I'm struggling to consider any computer gaming as a sport. :?

At least to train for SS they have to exercise and go out of the house (unless you have an "indoor" pool at home)

Get with the times you old farts.
They have included Lawn Bowls, as a sport for the seniors to get excited with, why not something just as silly for the kids.
