More on the evils of competitive sports

The following headline Pressure to win ‘turns children into sports cheats’ reminded me of a blog post I wrote some time ago: Competitive team sports will alienate inactive schoolchildren, report says – it almost did it for me. So, my thoughts on competitiveness are fairly clear (I don’t like it), and learning that pushing for it fosters cheating doesn’t help. Why push for something that doesn’t offer a benefit? This doesn’t fit my definition of a rationally conceived strategy.
