Two things here,

Thing #1) Play the game for your own reasons.  I play for serveral reasons
and I won't go into them here because they really mean only two things to
everyone else.  Jack and Squat.  (did I spell that right?)

they were played to win.  The ideal behind modern sports goes something like

something like this: Demonstrate your skill and fight with honor and

They look pretty similar to me.
