    How can anyone hate Chess? It's the greatest board game ever invented. A game fit for Kings. Wars have been decided on a chessboard.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I would scrap Football in his current form and replace it with Futsal.

    For those you said Golf is in the next Olympics, is it going to be a normal 4 day event, match play or Ambrose style event? I quite like the last 2 formats I suggested.

    Also, just for a random sport to be added, I'll go with Orienteering. Reckon an event featuring navigational skills having to run, bike and canoe around a course could be quite fun.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    It's monotonous in the extreme. Royalty also play croquet and polo. Chess still looks ****e in comparison.

    Chess and Scrabble alike are both games, not sports.
