I understand how this question could fit in the topic of Sports.SE (obviously):
What I don't understand is why it had to be migrated to sports? Is there a particular reason why it wasn't wanted here?
Admittedly, I'm a little disappointed that my rep from my last couple of answers here got migrated away, but I know those are just the facts of life sometimes. I do understand the rationale for migrating the question on accents to some degree (though my answer still ended up remaining the accepted and most upvoted one on English.SE), but I don't exactly understand why this one needed to be migrated.
I'm content with just an explanation; I just want to understand the reasoning a little better.
Also, another thing that probably makes me slightly personally biased on this:
The question on accents got migrated to English.SE, which I also happen to participate in; so it helped me. Sports.SE, on the other hand, I really have no interest in, and before today I hadn't created an account there. So personally it feels a bit like wasted rep.
