I think the difference is, in what people are willing to do for
recreation. The person who played football is considered a sportman. But the
person who watches it on the TV faithfully is also considered a sportman. I
don't believe anyone puts the dance before the people. It's just a matter of
willingness to extend ones personal abilities in their chosen form of
entertainement.
Contra is a fine form of entertainment but SCD is a more challenging form
to me.
