A very interesting article with opinions from professionals.
There is a big reference to FS(Close to the middle of the page)but its worth the time to read all of it.
I think that it also points whether FS is a game or not from his nature and not from what anyone thinks of it.
***Sorry for the wrong place of posting...But maybe its better to be placed here than between Sports,Apologizes and Drinks.
That looks an interesting read. I'll have a look through it later.
