That’s the problem you’re having. You don’t play the eating competition, you live it.It's only a real sport if I've ever owned a video game in which it featured. I've had PCM, FIFA, Trackmania and RTL Biathlon 2009 among others, but I have never bought a tennis or a goat eating game.

I'm not telling you what True Sport is, I'm telling you what I think Valid Sport is. And my opinion on that is idiosyncratic, yes. I don't see how that's an issue.
It’s more like saying a tomato is not a fruit. In some circumstances, that’s meaningful.Of course it's an issue.
It's like saying a green apple is not an apple because one defines an apple as 'a fruit that is red but not merely a tomato'.
Is it a sport to watch films?The original definition of the word "sport" is "leisure" (from Old French word "despore"), and the earliest English definition (from the 14th century) is "anything humans find amusing or entertaining".
As such notions of sports only being something physical, are wrong.
Some languages have a separate word to describe physical sports, but there is no such word in English, so "sports" is all-encompassing.
