In the OSM wiki pages of sports there are 2 main types of descriptions 

1) sport=filed_hockey description: Field Hockey


The description is simply the name of the sport, with no additional 

2) sport=australian_football description:*Wikipedia-16px.png Australian 
rules football 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/en:Australian_rules_football>*, officially 
known as *Australian football*, also called 
*football*, *footy*, *Aussie rules*, or *AFL* is a sport 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/sport> played between two teams of 
eighteen players on the field of either an Australian football ground 
a modified cricket field <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/cricket_field>, 
or a similarly sized sports venue 


Way too verbose! And it describes the sport .. not what is on the ground!

So I think a third method would be better ... and that the description 
should describe what is on the ground!

3) sport=field_hockey description: A rectangular pitch of x meters by y 
meters, with rectangular goals of v height and w width at both ends on 
which field hockey is played.

Describes what is on the ground to aid identification.
