Another area where people feel they know more than the professionals
is sports. People involved in professional sports seem to have all
their decisions second guessed and vociferously criticized, from hiring
and salary decisions down to the selection of when to pass versus run
the ball. And the fans seem very confident about their criticisms even
though most of them have never run or coached a professional team.

What do professional sports have in common with politics?
