Because sports channels are included in your cable plan.

Re: REGIONAL SPORTS FEE

warjunky-- The Regional Sports Network Fee is an itemized charge on your bill that is based on our costs of providing the regional sports networks that we carry on our cable systems in each area. These costs include the fees that regional sports networks charge us to carry them on our cable systems, fees that are among the fastest growing components of our programming costs. The Regional Sports Network Fee is not a government-imposed or mandated fee and will increase from time to time.

Re: REGIONAL SPORTS FEE

The reason the REGIONAL SPORTS FEE is on your bill is due to the fact that sports channels are on your tv package. It cannot be removed without having a plan without sports,  comcast has no knowlage of what channels you watch.
