Good for the sport

Last week I covered a question I got asked at the press conference following Kevin VanDam's win at the Bassmaster Classic. This week I'm going to cover another question from that same time one I got asked even more often that day.

The question, though put in various ways, can be summed up thus: "Is it good for the sport of bass fishing that Kevin VanDam is winning everything in sight these days most notably the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year award and the Bassmaster Classic?"

I have to admit, it's a good question. It's a tough one, too, and one I took several moments to consider before I answered.
