I know a lot of people, myself included, have been very interested in the recent decision by US Immigration Services to consider the League Championship Series a professional sports league and consider its League of Legends players athletes.
Some of you were wondering what might come next. I think the article linked at the bottom of this piece, found at dpgatlaw.com, by David Philip Graham offers a (very) educated opinion on what kinds of things we might see. The article is a bit long and technical but well worth a read if this topic is something that interests you.
I am still convinced the debate doesn’t matter in the short term, but Mr. Graham shows how the athlete label could matter quite a bit if or when the US government decides to pursue it further.
