I think the difference between playing and spectating sports gets glossed over in lots of "sports are dumb" conversations.

I do not care at all about watching other people play sports. It's super boring.

Playing sports ball with people you enjoy being around is quite rewarding.

I assume you mean that you specifically find it boring/rewarding.

... doesn't seem to make much sense to me. In what context would he not mean that?

Well...yes. I'm not sure what other interpretation of that makes much sense.

I thought "It's super boring" and "is quite rewarding" sounded like they were referring to sports themselves.
