The majority of sports lovers is far away from the majority of viewers. And for the majority of us that are not sports lovers, both services offer plenty in the way of all sports.
Yes, for the true sports lover, D* is the way to go. I don't think I've ever denied it.
Maybe you don't understand what you are writing, then.
"the majority of us that like some sports"
You've written that sort of statement a couple of times. It comes off as saying that it is a wash for sports when it is not except for only a couple. DirecTV has better baseball, better football, better tennis, better college sports (yes, I know that Dish as PAC 12 and DirecTV does not but DirecTV has more RSNs and most of them are fulltime HD) and better soccer. Dish holds its own in NBA and NHL but that is about it. I don't think Dish does better in any sport than DirecTV.
What I find hilarious is that Dish has the gall to actually advertise on sporting events and sports channels. Any advertising they do on baseball or football is a complete sham.
