Plenty of immature and ignorant people on the planet to watch this garbage. Of course they are mostly "young adults". Until they grow up and realize just how stupid it is. The cycle will go on.

Watching peopl kick and throw balls around is so much better, especially the part where they go on riots because their team doesn't win. So mature

Can you elaborate on what's so stupid about it? It's pretty immature and ignorant to just straight up say it's garbage.

As an adult I find esports to be boring. The announcers make situations more hyped up in the games than they really are. It's like they are trying too hard.

I'm a news photographer and on Friday nights I have to shoot high school football games. I'm always amazed by how staggeringly boring it is.

At least there is motion, randomness in each scene, suspense and drama that can be reflected in your photo. Now imagine taking a picture of eSports. Yes, all that emotion of a guy blankly staring at the screen, next picture - wait did his index finger move (must take a new picture), such action, such drama, such suspense captured in each photo. And I am saying this as somebody that really does not care for football at all.

Eh, if people can sit and watch people running a ball around for three hours I'm not surprised other people get something out of watching other people play video games they can just play themselves. I think it's stupid, and I hate how every other multiplayer game tries so hard to draw in the esports crowd, but whatever. If this hastens the death of ESPN I'm all for it.
