Yeah, but what if the kids are trying to play basketball and the "kid they don't like" keeps trying to kick the ball. Doesn't it make sense to split the kids up into two groups where one group can play basketball and the other can play soccer? And those that don't wish to play soccer, watch soccer, or talk about soccer don't have to. Those that want to play and watch both certainly may. Granularity solves problems in this case.
