Phase3

Which sport do you not like and why?

The other males in my family are very obsessed over pretty much every sport.
But I just can't get into much of them.Only sport I do like and enjoy is basketball
Football-pretty much bores me.There is too much stoppages.Taking too much time giving timeouts,flags,penalty,etc
Baseball and golf-make me sleepy

I am able to watch wrestling, boxing,MMA.

I also am able to enjoy football and baseball..but only if I'm playing the games myself on PlayStation so which sport/sports do you not like and why?

None of them. They bore me to tears.

However one afternoon years ago, I was flipping around and men's college wrestling was on DirecTV. And that - well, that was an afternoon of heavenly Lycra bliss.

And on that note, sometimes I may look at MMA cuz what gay man doesn't enjoy watching two guys thrash about a bit in a fleshy, sweaty heap of testosterone and tattoos?

I don't give a rat's behind about football, soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, race car driving (although a crash is fun), polo, running, biking... just none of it. I was never that kid growing up. I was the artsy kind in school, never a jock.

Football

Bowling

Cricket

Anything related to WWE or MMA

I used to like watch G.L.O.W. back in the 1980s more than WWF/WWE. I did like Hulk Hogan, Junkyard Dog, & Ricky Steamboat. I remember Mean Gene used to be scared of George "Animal" Steele. lol Mean Gene hands would shake while interviewing him. I'd watch G.L.O.W. on purpose every Saturday, I'd generally watch WWF if somebody else had it on or if Mr. T was on it.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

I never watched G.L.O.W., but I do remember when I was a kid in the late 70s and early 80s, there was Mid-South Wrestling, with people like Pork Chop Cash. I think some of the guys in WWE/F later on came out of that. I remember there was a set of brothers, and one later came out with a mask on as a new character, and after a few matches, someone pulled the mask off, and it was the main brother. He later changed his name to the Red Rooster or something.

I remember the early days of stuff with the Iron Shiek, Undertaker, Rick Flair, and others. I do remember Junkyard Dog, Steamboat, and Mean Gene, and George Steele. But later on, I lost interest (after high school).

Can you help me like football somehow?

My whole family is crazy about it but I just find it boring
I understand how to play and I am able to play football video games on ps4 but when it comes to watching real games I just cant get into it
And all the commercials,time outs,penalty's doesn't help

I love me some basketball though

I became a fan in 1997.I believe the late 90's wrestling was at it's peak popularity
Seems like they could do no wrong and every week the shows were getting better and better
But when WCW went out of business in 2001 and was bought by Vince McMahon.Wrestling started going down hill since then

Just found out recently that starting next year,WWE will not be selling their ppv's on DVD anymore
Makes sense because everything is digital now and even WWE has their own network available and on peacock

It would be easier to name the sports I DO like. I like snooker and football (real football, not that American bullshit). I dislike every other sport.

Here are some reasons why;

American football: Boring, too many stoppages in play.

Cricket: The worst sport ever.

Baseball; Next to cricket, the worst sport ever.

Pool; The poor man's snooker.

Basketball; see "American football.

Golf: I don't even consider that shit a sport.

Boxing: Boring.

MMA: Extremely boring.

Tennis: Boring as fuck

Race car driving: If I wanted to see cars drive dangerously fast, I'd watch my sister.

Water polo: I used to play water polo but my horse drowned.

When you say football, you mean Association Ballet right? biggrin

I use to be a big football fan as a kid, but I can't stand it now, the diving, shirt pulling, faking injuries, the corruption. The World Cup that's coming up in Saudi Arabia ... over 6,000 dead immigrants already from the stadiums they're building, not to mention their dubious human rights record, and no one is talking about boycotting it? ... eugh ...

I don't actually follow any particular team. I mostly only watch International games. Which is kind of weird considering Ireland are crap lol
If I had to pick any team I like I guess I'd go with Man City. But my favourite thing about football is hearing Roy Keane rip Man Utd to shreds in the post game analysis.

F1. It's corrupt. neutral


If you're pro human rights, then you should also be very pro freedom from oppression. Anything less is double standards.
