I'm not at all a sports fan, but I have defended the A story several times. It is about racism. Walker-Smith, black human, calls the aliens "snake heads," a racist epithet. The aliens of the Mutai Doh are also racist, which is why they won't let humans participate. Eventually, they learn to see each other as equals. That's the simple description, 'cause I'm too lazy to search for the better ones I've written...
