The above is a sincerely held belief; I truly find it astonishing that people care about seeing sports to that extent. I see why people want to play sports, perhaps, or even learn from others better than them. Professional sports are not that, though.
Still no reason to ban it.
Note that I am not trying to downplay anything. Bitcoin uses a lot of energy, and is expected to continue doing so at least while the subsidy lasts. Humans contribute to climate change, and this will be a problem which needs solutions. Policing how people use energy is not one.
