how could anyone vote for cricket and darts when there are so many really dull sports listed? A fast paced sport like darts is ridiculously exciting compared to snoozefests like snooker or golf.
What is wrong with you people.

Horse racing is soley for betting purposes. It can be a cracking day out. Hence the term at the races.


For me it is Golf. Terrible to play and watch.

Football for me, you watch 90 minutes to see a few goals, if any at all and players (and managers) showing no respect for the referee
Golf, just plain boring.

Snooker is actually really great to watch. Most people find it boring because they don't know the rules - it's not all about potting balls, quite far from it really. It's about getting good position on the white ball after every shot you take so you can always pre-define where the player wants to put the white ball. How that player does it and whether it turns out right or wrong is the best part of snooker - very impressive to watch nudges (cannons) and I think a lot of people would actually like it. I may be slightly biased here though because I'm a huge snooker fan.

For me, personally I could never get into horse racing, gold, cricket, football or any motorsports. The only other sport that I enjoy watching is boxing.

Golf, snooker and motorsport are all like watching paint dry. I don't really enjoy watching horseracing either.

I know the rules inside out and still find it brain damagingly boring. Snooker, like golf and to some extent motorsports, is a typical slow tempo individual sport: fun to play but insanely boring to watch.

Team sports are generally more fun to watch than individual sports.

Fast paced sports are generally more fun to watch than slow paced sports.

Rugby Union is nothing but glorified Piggy in the Middle. It works better than Rohypnol for getting me to sleep.

I put cycling, its just like marathon running but on bikes but I could make a case for motorsport (well F1 more specifically), skiing and athletics unless Usain Bolt's running. I get ****ged off for liking darts but if you've ever seen it live, you'll realise how exciting it is
