Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
Well stated. Although I will say that when I have been watching the World Cup matches, I did not really remember the players from non-US teams. Except for the guy from Urugay who bit the Italian. And he was supposed to be a top class player.

You would think there would have been some statistic to show if he had already bitten twice there was bound to be a third time....

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
I'm reminded of the Battle Bots TV series, while fun to watch for a few minutes I have to say that I couldn't remember a name of a single robot in the fights.  With human athletes you tend to put faces to names and you get a bit of personality through their play and through press coverage.  If someone built a homerun hitting robot that was on the verge of breaking the human homerun record in baseball I don't think many people would feel the same way that they felt when Barry Bonds passed Hank Aaron.  Even people who know nothing about baseball followed bonds that season. There is something about human achievement that draws us in and sports are a very visual way to see that achievement, robots can't replace that.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
I would hope so. Also the fact that humans add lots of unpredictable elements into the equation make them a lot more appealling over robots.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
Given the complexity of football these days, most of the humans have already been turned into robots-albeit highly paid ones! They need to come up with tech that will ensure the safety of the players. Too many serious injuries now. Worse are the ones that will affect these athletes later in life.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
I think we'll have human players for some time, mostly so that we have something to aspire to and a way to boost the human ego.  Think about the things that a machine could do but we chose to have humans do it because we like that personal touch.

There is a trailer from a sports gear manufacturer that shows the humans are replaced by clones to paly football (an evil genius and his company was behind it). Let us see how much tech we can digest.

Well the humans are there for entertainment. That is what the robots provide.
