 Myths About Sports Psychology - Article by Bill Cole
One somewhat objective measure of which sports seem to be the most mentally demanding could be based on the volume of literature on the psychological aspects of the sport.
Sports psychology at its core is essentially an educational approach, while psychotherapy is a therapeutic one.
Sports psychology does not aim to alter a person's personality, but one of its goals is to take the performance aspects of the athlete's mind and body and maximize their natural talents.

 H-Net Review: George Marsden on Muscular Christianity: Manhood and Sports in Protestant ...
Though the Promise Keepers is less about sports than about spiritual renewal, personal commitments, and responsibilities, we now take for granted that athletics and evangelical Christianity often go hand-in-hand in America.
By the 1880s American Protestant churches, which often had backgrounds of Puritan or Methodist aversions to sports, were routinely endorsing the culture of physical vigor.
Representatives of emerging liberal Protestantism saw it as a way of helping to develop "character" and "manliness," in the sense of being "civilized." The ideal man was both strong and responsible, dedicated to serving others.

This all gets turned on its head in sports where, as a practical matter, all you need for league approval of a franchise move is poor attendance figures, regardless of the competence (or lack thereof) of the owner.
Suggestions by other experts have been made for wresting power from the sports owners – say, municipal ownership (as has been successfully implemented for several minor-league baseball and Canadian football teams), or at the very least granting cities the right of first refusal to buy teams (as a bill currently in Congress would do).

In order to get a (hopefully) analogous comparison from another sport, I looked up some track and field records since these are timed and therefore completely objective.
Since 1960 the percentage difference between men and women has gone down by about 50% in the 100 meters (13.0% to 6.61%) while it's gone down by nearly 80% in the marathon.
Women are also closer in another sense: the current marathon champion is running at the same pace as the men's champion of 1950, while in the 100 meters the current champion is running at a 1920 pace.
