Gamer predicts that eSports is going to be bigger than football

According to this BBC video, some gamers think their sport has a real chance of one day becoming more popular than football. As much as I like computer games, and as intrigued as I am by the rise of so-called e-sports, my initial reaction was that he was utterly deluded. How could any sport ever eclipse the multi-billion pound industry that is world football? But then I thought: fifty-two percent of the voting public think the UK could survive out of the EU - is he so deluded in comparison? Absurd delusions seem to be becoming more and more popular these days. Framed like that, this chap may well turn out to be right; who needs to go to footie matches when you can watch someone play Quake? Mind you, by the same token, I have a chance of one day becoming President of America, or winning the Formula One world championship.
