Play vs Display

After listening to Ultiworld's analytic discussion about the flood of pro Ultimate leagues, I was reminded about this wonderful book.

The author, Jay Coakley - the keynote speaker at USAU's 2011 conference - spoke about "preserving play" plus the difference between participant-oriented sports (play) and spectator-oriented sports (display).
