Games Not Sport

3D Action Planet of all places has posted a short editorial about the attempts of the UKPCGC to get professional gaming recognised as a sport here in the UK.

For those of you who missed all the fuss, Ed Watson from The Playing Fields (which is hosting the UKPCGC) tried to register computer gaming with the Sports Council a couple of months back, but they refused to even send him an application form.

Which doesn't really make any sense. After all, if darts and snooker can be registered as sports, why not computer gaming? It requires just as much physical effort, and just as high a level of skill and hand-eye coordination.
