    Name sports you cannot bear to watch

    Thought it'd be interesting for a thread on people's most hated sports that they absolutely CANNOT watch under any circumstances.

    I'm thinking more mainstream, not things like synchronised swimming or equestrian.

    For me, basketball is an absolute shocker, so is field hockey; just can't do it!!

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I find basketball difficult to watch, mainly because of the squeaky shoes, but other than that it's pretty enjoyable. I don't mind most sports, usually pretty good.

    Seconded. I know a few people who are into it - people I usually agree with about sports and the like - so I've attempted to get into it and I've really given it some time. Just can't get any enjoyment out of it though.

    Horse related events.

    Rugby when it is a penalty kick and drop kick-athon. FFS what is the point of having a backline out there? FTR I like rugby, more into the internationals then anything, but I'll still watch it and I know the players etc.

    I'm not a horse racing fan, but can see the appeal & would watch it at a push. I do think that if you took the gambling aspect out of it it'd die on its arse tho. Goes double for the dogs, obv.

    Worst sport is probably walking tho; I mean FFS why in this day & age is it still an Olympic sport? Every ****er seems to cheat as well, so it's doubly pointless.

    Basketball really, unless it's the Olympics and the Americans are losing. I struggle to watch any Rugby League as well. Other than that, I'll watch most other sport. Field hockey is also quite tedious because of the amount of fouls in it and the over-importance of the penalty corner.

    Any form of Rugby, tbh. Can watch most sports though and enjoy most events at the Olympics.
