    Union for me at the moment

    My opinions on the other sports

    Football: not enough goals and too much diving for me to get into it
    Rugby league: Scrums are pointless and noone seems to know how to tackle
    Golf: cant watch it, can play it for a while but then get annoyed at my inability to hit the ball well consistently
    Aussie rules: Getting into it more these days, dont fully understand all the rules. players dont seem to be able to take the ball cleanly very often
    Field hockey: good game to watch when its on TV, very hard game to play, i have tried it a couple of times and its really tiring.
    Ice hockey: doesn't get alot of coverage in Australia but i do enjoy watching it
    Tennis: love playing it and watching it
    Badminton: played it a few times, didn't like the Shuttlecock or the raquets much
    Boxing: stupid sport, good for fitness though
    Volleyball: boring
    Beach volleyball: i watched in in the Olympics when Australia was playing, seen it a couple of times since and it was boring
    Athletics: yawn
    Wrestling: yawn
    Swimming: watch it whan its on TV and Australia is racing, not really into it though
    Darts: i cant believe people watch it on TV, good pub game.
    Baseball: hate almost everything about it
    Basketball: ok to watch occasionally, would probably get into it if i watched it more often. gets abit boring
    Netball: enjoy watching, particularly the ever closely fought Aus - NZ games.
    Handball: never really watched it, would like to see more of it
    Cycling: great to watch, very hard to do, those guys are incredible!
    Gaelic: never seen it.

    Apparently it seems like you haven't seem LeBron James or Kobe Bryant or Ray Allen play. I could sit there all day in front of the TV watching them play and not get bored for one second

    It's really a matter of taste. Tiger Woods may be a master at his game, but if you have no interest in golf, it isn't going to change your perception.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    True


    Interesting how Vimes and Master both left out American Football in their opinions. Would like to see what everyone thinks of it.

    Indeed. I have no interest in golf or basketball. People I know try to tell me cricket and snooker are boring, though. Many of them like golf. Hypocrites...

    Actually went to a game in LA, wacthed Kobe play at the Staples Center. Was bloody boring. While were on this topic, Basketball is boring to watch, boring to play and and boring to talk and read about. IMO.

    Worst of all the US sports which I would rank as:
    1) MLB 2) NHL 3) NFL 4) NBA.

    None have anything on footy though.
