Also, the casual folk would much rather see HUGE numbers in a game rather than 3-1 games. What? There's only 4 points scored!?!?!?!? I can go watch some college football teams put up 63 and 60 points instead.
The eyesight thing is the part that I agree with you on, but for as many times as I have heard that excuse, it has never come from someone with bad eyesight.

As far as casual folk, you're exactly right, they want to see scoring all the time. This is why a lot of people I know like basketball over hockey, because there is scoring every 5 seconds.
