We are all agreed Beach Volleyball is a sham
you should not have bothered trying to read this...
Rest In Peace Craigos
Every Olympics we have to endure this stupidity.
How is an Olympic sport validated by whether you like it or want to see it on your screen? Who pays attention to sports they're not interested in?
I hope they bring in stupider and stupider sports to annoy everyone. Chess Boxing!

Equestrian and basketball are my two main gripes. And I don't hate soccer but far out SBS shows it so often when they could be showing other stuff that rarely gets seen. This applies to swimming to a lesser extent but I like watching it and at least each race doesn't last 90 minutes.
tbf SBS are all about football normally so its only natural they will show as much of the football at the olympics as possible.
yeah love football, hate olympic football, just find it incredibly boring to watch and its on a lot (on SBS as well which is much the better channel to watch)
Like tennis, hate olympic tennis.
Beach Volleyball (Normal Volleyball is fine) Synchronised swimming, Tennis, Baseball, Softball and Soccer/football.
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Tbh I actually like Beach Volleyball as a sport. Seems better to watch two people construct their three shots than six people. I'd argue that it's also a mission to trek through the sand but then you'd have to make a case for every other beach sport.
Dressage is the worst excuse of a sport since the walk. Definitely agree with everyone who said that all sports whose points system is entirely subjective should go. Artistic >>> RG as well.
Strongly disagree with the notion that doubling a distance doesn't make it any different. 100m and 200m running rely on completely different energy systems ffs.

RIP Fardin. RIP Craigos. RIP Prince.
Have enjoyed pretty much all sports in the Olympics besides soccer, tennis, table tennis and dressage. Have even come around to gymnastics.
