Here's my question: Look at one of the holes at a golf course. Now, I know most people that would be on a golf course can hit that ball a couple hundred yards. Where it lands, you hit it another couple hundred yards. SO, , from about 10 feet from where you start to 150 or so yards out, the ball NEVER lands there. THEN , another dead area after THAT, where the ball never lands. So the question is, why all the wasted space? Sounds to me like a perfect place for a landfill or a cemetery.  Drink

The starting and stopping would be OK if they got started in a reasonable amount of time. I see what they were going for when the game was first played, , but it's not now what it was supposed to be. I find it much like boxing: decades ago it was exciting, but, it's been 'solved', so it's no longer a contest, it's a mathematical formula, and the formula seems to be the safe route so to speak. Football has succumbed to something that resembles boxing's "jab HUG, , ref separates.....jab jab HUG, ref separates,. ..  circle circle jab HUG. . .". Yawn.

Anything where you need an animal or an engine between your legs is not a sport.  TongueOut

Ėnoun
1.    an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.

Many if not most forms of racing require more athleticism that those listed, and all require skill, also more than some of those listed. If golf is a sport, then most forms of racing surely is.

Agreed.  And please: that includes sports that involve riding a horse.  TongueOut

It would be easier to name the sports I like to watch.... Actually, no it wouldn't. There was a time when I could have said professional wrestling, even if it isn't a real sport. But I haven't really enjoyed that since the late 80s.

I've been able to watch bodybuilding, because it's mainly an aesthetic thing. Then again, that kind of makes it closer to art than sport.

I used to like when a few of us would get together and watch the occasional Ultimate Fighting event on pay-per-view, but it's not something I ever watch on my own.

The only baseball game I can recall really getting into was the last time Toronto won the World Series, and then it only interested me toward the end of the game.

There are times I really do wish I could get into sports, if only to join in on the fun other people seem to be having. Super Bowl parties seem like they'd be a blast except that football, to me, is like watching paint dry. Hard to get into a game in which nobody's doing anything three quarters of the time.

Hockey is another one, being such a big part of Canadian culture. Looking at how seriously fans take the sport, I kind of envy them at the same time I'm rolling my eyes and thanking God I'm not like that.

MMA I can watch in moderation.  I like a good fisticuff fight but rather dislike it when the fight goes to the ground.  I feel at that point it should be broken up after one  minute if no submission hold is applied. 

Hockey is sliding, no pun intended,  in the states big time.  I do enjoy watching it but prefer seeing it live.  You just don't get the magnitude of a check against the board unless you're there. 

I dig rugby and find it tough as nails.  However I'll be damned if I can follow it. 

Another thing with Nascar...what the hell is with all the sponsors?  I mean imagine if football players slapped one hundred logos on themselves.

I'm sure it's at least somewhat like NHRA where the sponsors pay ALL the bills. The payout for winning a race is not very much compared to how much it costs to run. John Force Racing has 3 or 4 cars and several dozen employees to pay. I know Crew Chief Alan Johnson gets paid over $3 mil a year, I don't think you can collect that much in winnings if you win every race that year. Sponsors put in the big bucks, so they get their name wherever they want, as big as they want, in whatever color they want it in. Race Teams are basically specialized marketing companies.

Sports I'd ranther not watch :

Golf : Never had a desire to watch people chase a little white ball across a cow pasture

NASCAR : the whole race can be summed up as "He's turning left!!"

Basketball : Like watching someone running laps in a gym while playing with a ball to me

Figure Skating : ARGH!!! Man Batch!!!!

Faux Sports like Cheerleading, Scrabble, Poker, etc.... : These are not sports to me. If they are then we should include panic shopping as well. At least panic shopping has the violence of ice hockey with the fast pace of track.

1.) Poker- I'm not even a fan of playing it, so I really don't understand the appeal of WATCHING it on TELEVISION.  Do we really need a poker competition.

2.) Pool- I don't mind playing it at a bar, but really, I don't wanna watch it on tv.

3.) Bowling- Again, fun to play, but not for watching.

4.) NASCAR- No offense to fans of the sport, but I really don't understand the appeal.  If anyone says "The crashes", then that speaks volumes of you. Buggedout

5.) Soccer- It's not bad, but the net is a mile long, with one goalie.  No wonder the announcer screams "GOALLLLLL!".  The game lasts a day and a half and it ends with a score of 1-0.

Even though I'm a pretty decent martial artists I actually do not like MMA that much at all.  To me it's really a legal street fight.  That's why I like kickboxing better than MMA.

Many people that are into traditional martial arts don't care for MMA. Could it be because nobody that has studied any pure and single martial art has been successful? The "legalized street fight" always makes me laugh because boxing and kickboxing revolve only around bashing someone in the head, any street punk can do that.
