After all sport is about entertainment.

This is true at many levels and has to be considered at all times in these discussions. The original awards and honors were a function of entertainment - sell newspapers, the game, the personalities while entertaining the viewer and reader.

Taking such accounts to be purely historical in nature with an eye to how they would be interpreted generations down the road should be avoided.
