Engrave this Quote Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules, and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words it is war minus the shooting.
-George Orwell, Shooting an Elephant, The Sporting Spirit, 1950 Tell a Friend
