most ridiculous sport ever

must be 'nordic walking'

seriously, what makes people walk around with stupid sticks in their hands? it just makes them look like idiots. why not just go for a walk or jogging? you can probably get a good pair of shoes for those sticks.

It's not really a sport, is it?
It just a methode of training.
It's supposed to be better than just normal walking because you get the parallell movemeent between your arms and legs, plus you supposedly avoid some back problems.

It looks bloody stupid, I agree with you there.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

My stephmother uses those sticks for walking, and forced me to try them out.

... and it was a damn lot better than just normal walking. Anybody sane would prefer a jog though, but depending on how fat/old you are that isn't necessarily an option.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

Is nordic walking the same as speed walking? if not i submit speed walking.

Infact anyone who tries to make a sport out of walking should be shot.

The players are more important than the game itself, it's like Pop Idol with a ball.

The core supporters are louts. Actually to use your own term, I find the average football supporter a bit chavish. People going about in big crowds before, during and after games beating each other up and making ruckus just because your team didn't do well. It's just a ****ing sport people, get over it.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

it's called 'football' it always been called 'football'. 'Soccer' came about to distinguish Association Football from Rugby Football; the latter was shortened to Rugby and 'Soccer' went back to being 'Football'. the other variants (Gaelic, American etc) that arose have, with the exception of our brethren in the West, held on to the prefixes.

Exclamation Re: most ridiculous sport ever

Most sports are objectively shit, and are only made 'good' for those who enjoy them by the peripheral shite that accompanies them. (Beer, strawberries, pies, beating the shit out of foreigners when your team plays abroad, sitting down in the sunshine for hours doing ****-all but having the excuse that you're a 'spectator', etc.)

Historically yes, but too many other variants have squattered over the term football, and as I see it won. For your country it's fairly natural, but for mine football only ever involves an oval or egg shaped ball in whatever variant of the sport.

POHM/POM , I prefer the latter, is as JamMak said, but has become Aussie slang for the Brits. I don't like using the term British or UK people because it suggests England is more civilised than it actually is

I did not stereotype, I accept that not every fan is as wild, but I put such people in a minority. I can only assume two things, only the shit supporters attend football matches, and that only the shit brits ever visit our country, cause I've never met one that didn't fit the profile.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

It would seem that the majority of sports called football actually involve the use of hands and/ or an oblong ball. We have American football, Rugby football, Australian Rules football, Gaelic football, and Canadian football.

But to me it doesn't really matter, because True Football is vastly more popular than any of these so-called football-games. The majority of the world's population thinks of True Football as the only one worthy of the name.

PS: I have no problem with rugby, and I even had fun playing Aussie "Football" once, but American Football is a disgrace.

That is one of the popular (although wrong) supposed origins of the word.

It is in fact pom - which is a shortening of pomegranate, which was rhyming slang for immigrant. The term became popular in the post-war immigration boom of the late 40’s early 50’s...and was mostly applied to british migrants as they made up the largest percentage of immigrants at the time. The term later became commonly used to refer to people of brittish origin.

According to Mr Snopes, we're both wrong.

Although I am the more wronger

It is the fruit, but it's because british sailors used to eat lots of them to help prevent scurvy. (At least that's the best guess atm.)

P.S. Pomegranate rhymes with immigrant??

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

It does when you're ancestors are all convicts.

PS i'm fairly sure Football (the true, British version) was invented before all of the others (Medieval pig bladders et al), so therefore the other forms have merely distorted what true football is - a game played with a ball (by definition a round thing) and predominantly the feet.

Ahaha you're so dumb. Association Football is both more popular and came first.

And I haven't seen a fight outside a football match... well, I can't remember the last time.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

American Football: Rugby, for girls.


And to counter American claims about hooliganism in football, yes that exists to an extent, but there have been riots in which entire city centres have been decimated after superbowl games, so you're far from perfect.

heh, like the man in the red hat says, I'm Australia fs

I'm no fan of Rugby, believe me, infact truthfully I don't even like our own football.

As to 'true' football (whatever), being more popular, I'd stake that as being 50/50, it's popular in European & Scadanavian countries, but less so in the Americas and Asia Pacific/Oceania.

Infact, the only people into it here are the poms and wogs, no one else really give a shit.

As for riots, I see them frequently whenever a big match is on. With plenty of news coverage afterwards. I seem to recall one big one in particular last year or something, thousands of hooligans in the street and on the field firing off flares and things into the grounds. It was bad enough they had to call in the british riot police, who were overpowered and did little else than stand around like ponces trying to look tuff with their shields and things.

You sure this was England?

If so, i must've missed this.

Flares are usually associated with the Italians.

Can't remember the last riot on that scale in English football.

Its the number 1 sport in most European countries, most South American countries and i would imagine most African countries. Its not exactly unpopular in Asia either.

I didn't say that, I only said I'm no fan of football (round ball) or football (oval ball).

Most other sports are fine though. Infact in true irony, I'm quite a fan of soccer (wogg football), go figure.

The world according to UK . Football/Soccer, Football/Rugby, Cricket, Tennis & Motor Racing probably take up the core sporting interests of the world. Which ones are favoured vary between the assorted cultures, Football is not the holy grail of sports, the share of popularity is much more evenly distributed than that between each country.

Cricket?

Now you're having a laugh. Only the UK, Aussies, NZ, Pakistan, India and South Africa play it really. Nobody else in Europe does to any real extent, nobody in North/South America does, nobody in Africa apart from the South Africans and Zimbabwe, and China doesnt.

Anyway i should be working and cant be arsed arguiing that football is big in practically every country apart from America, Canada and Australia.

Not in my eyes no - was always the flaw in the theory I quoted....I guess it kind of does - if you work at it....but why let a little thing like that confuse the issue

Erm btw the last paragraph from the Snoops page

"The best guess at this time is that "pommy" was based on the word "pomegranate" -- either because the redness of the fruit supposedly matched the typically florid British complexion, or because (like "Johnny Grant") it was used as rhyming slang for "immigrant."

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

Back on topic - I'm surprised syncronised swimming hasn't been mentioned.

Yes I do know how much effort goes into it - I actually used to train with the state syncronised swimming team to improve my breathing techniques when I was swimming competatively....

But it's still one of the most ridiculous sports ever.

Re: most ridiculous sport ever

To me, baseball, is the most ridiculous sport. I walked out on every baseball game I have ever been to. Its long and boring. i mean, how many times can you wach a guy through a ball and another guy swing at it? And dig this, a major accomplishment in the sport is if NOONE hits the ball!!!!!111! How entertaining is that?

Sounds just like cricket - at least baseball doesn't take 5 days....

Speaking of watching a ball get hit - I find tennis boring as well - I mean how many times can you hit a ball over a net before it's just same old same old....that's just personal entertainment values btw - I don't count tennis or cricket for that matter as ridiculous sports....just boring

Godwin's Law prov. [Usenet] "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one." There is a tradition in many groups that, once this occurs, that thread is over, and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress. Godwin's Law thus practically guarantees the existence of an upper bound on thread length in those groups. However there is also a widely- recognized codicil that any intentional triggering of Godwin's Law in order to invoke its thread-ending effects will be unsuccessful.
