I'm a member of the public, and I don't care ... but that's because I don't pay much attention to these sports. The ironic thing is that the only part of it that I DO care about is that it stay honest, because if they aren't competing honestly against one another, what's the point ? Even if I don't care who wins, I'd like to believe that whoever does win deserved to.
