Poker is never a sport. Ever. No game is a sport when you can be fat lazy and in terrible health and still win over time. Period
Chess is the same. Never a sport. Ever.
To compare these to football is insane, foolish, and irresponsible
Man I disagree with you in every possible ways. Unless your joking, and that would be fun as it can be.
Per your logic, shooting games in Olympics is not a Sport, what to say about Paralympic Bocce, you really need to train to get better in poker, and not only strategics.. Do you know that your food impacts on your game? Sleep time? Physical conditions for long games?"
That's my opinion, when you have to prepare yourself, study an strategy, take care of your habits and when the most prepared player overcomes the less prepared one, yes, that's sport.

Makes sense that people who dont take part in sport would not really understand what sport actually means.
