Gregg, I don't see the term "discipline" in this sense at all. You could 
say that the specific skill of a particular sport is a discipline in the 
sense that it is a behavior that is learned through rigorous activity 
(the golfer's swing, the basketball player's jump shot, the gymnast's 
adherence to the code of points). But I wouldn't see the entire sport as 
a discipline, even though it may require some level of discipline in 
order to do it well. In particular, there is a wide range of discipline 
between sports and among those who play sports, so wrapping it in this 
term seems overly precise. Besides, most English-speaking people would 
normally call such things a "sport."
