Reality TV vs Sports

I hate reality TV. Especially any kind of dating show. All the idiots turned into heroes by the shows' producers drive me crazy. As do the manufactured plot lines and fake suspense. But I love watching professional football on TV. And really, with all the 24-hour sports coverage, player retiring, player un-retiring, players getting arrested and generally acting like idiots, I've found that there's less and less difference between professional sports and reality TV. I suppose you could argue that the physical violence of two humans hitting each other in sports somehow appeals to me, but if I'm being honest, I wouldn't watch The Bachelorette even if those women could beat each other to a pulp.
