The thing is that a lot of people DO want to see these games and will fall for the "convenience" argument. This "opens the door" to biometrics (compulsory eventually) being accepted for a lot of other things.
"The grapevine" says that 2017 is to be the year of biometrics, and so there will be a "biometrics option" introduced into just about everything. Then - very soon after - it will become "compulsory" and (probably by the end of the year) you won't be able to do anything at all without surrendering your biometric measurements.
Let me set the scene: You go to the shooting range, you get all your gear out of the car like you've done thousands of times before, then - DESPITE THE FACT THAT YOU KNOW EVERYONE THERE, HAVE DONE FOR YEARS, AND THINK "YOU ARE AMONG FRIENDS", you are told that you have to have your fingerprints taken, your iris scanned and show "photo id" before you are "allowed" to enter the area and begin shooting. If you raise an objection, you are confronted with a spiel about "9.11", and "security" (after all it is a "privilege to shoot") and it is argued - or rather you are TOLD - "this is government controlled and you know you can trust the government" and "there is nothing wrong with biometrics", then "this decision has been democratically decided and we HAVE to do this".
Then you go to your bank to get money to buy food for the week, same scenario, looks like without you giving them your biometric measurements you have "forfeited" all your money.
Then you look in your purse and are grateful that you have "some" money that you managed to get out last week, but when you try to spend it .... biometrics are demanded again.
You despondently go home thinking "at least I have some food at home to feed my dog with", then you see flashing lights behind you and hear a siren, the cop confronts you and says "your driving licence has expired and you will have to produce your biometric info. to get another one, in the meantime I am impounding your car". You protest "saying what are you talking about? My licence has not expired", he merely says "new rules, you should have checked" while he calls a tow truck and you are left by the side of the road without your arms (which were in the car) and are left to walk home.
Meanwhile the dog goes hungry.
