    I played football, Little League Baseball, basketball, and soccer as a kid in the 1960s.

    My parents were enthusiatic aboutgoing to all of my games except for the soccer.

    Wondered why.

    Know I know.

    Any sport where folks run around for two hours and maybe one point is scored is officially boring.

    No sport should allow games to end in a tie.

    When pretending to fall down in terrible agony is the most exciting thing to happen during a game, that's a boring sport right there.

    My stats prove otherwise....Put up your stats - people who follow the game, crowds at games etc for your sports .... :cool:

    Baseball - boring as hell
    American Football - stop, start, stop, start, stop start - a game that is supposed to be an hour that takes four
    Ice hockey - can't see the puck!
    Basketball - run down the court, shoot, run down the other end of hte court, shoot, then run down the other end of the court, shoot.... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Football (soccer to you Yanks - note it is called FOOT ball - not "Ball in the hand ball" which is what American football is).
    A game of immense skill where you try and put a ball in the back of the net using the two apendages on your body (and head) which were totally not built to carry/hold/pass any type of ball.....

    No wonder it is the most popular game in the world....:cool:

    Stats? Stats? Do you really think there are "stats" for something as subjective as opinions about what sport you find boring or not? You sound like you feel the need for justification for some reason...hmmm...

    Since nothing is happening during the game, they have time to exchange nice little greeting cards.

    "Dear Nigel,

    Don't you wish someone would actually score a point in this game or something? I'm considering running to within a meter of Percy there and then throwing myself on the ground as if I'd been shot at close range. Let me know what you think of my performance after the game over tea.

    Cheers,
    Byron"

    :lol: Are you really mocking out Brits?
    Yellow card....kind of like having to sit in the penalty box @ a hockey game.
    Red card....when the Ump throws a baseball player off the field.

    It is "most popular" because it requires no skill or athleticism and therefore anyone can do it.
