But that's kind of circular, though. If "a game" has gotten to the point where there is a huge industry, and billions of dollars at stake, and many careers at stake, and even the economic performance or stock market of a region or nation can be affected by a sports outcome, then it by definition is no longer "just a game" and it has become something a lot more substantial than that.
