I did not get that impression from this thread... nor was is started to be negative. I know what a great flyer Scott is and I know people are going to mention seeing an indoor kite routine on the show.
Oh that comment was not directed at you or this thread. I ran across criticism toward Scott on another forum totally unrelated to kiting. I didn't even know that they aired his audition initially. I had hoped they wouldn't for his sake.
As for indoor kiting: I see it possibly gaining attention as an Art Exhibition Sport, but not as a mainstream thing. TV exposure certainly would generate curiosity about the sport.
