        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.
