Top Ten Most Boring Sportsanonymous
The Top Ten
Whack the ball, jump on go kart and drive for 20 minutes to the ball, repeat. No continuity, jumps between players, don't know where the ball's going, just shows the ball for a second in the air and then on the ground.
Suitable for retired, obese men.
I can watch most sports for at least 10 minutes, but golf gets an instant remote red button
What is the point of spending all day wandering around a HUGE big golf course trying to get a LITTLE ball into a LITTLE hole?

As Homer Simpson once said: "I never realized how boring this game is".
It's like watching paint dry. Entirely too many games played. Baseball is what I use to put myself to sleep when I have to wake up early for work. That's why when the camera man pans the camera thru the crowd during a game he'll almost always find 2 or 3 people sleeping in the stands. Just sad.
I'm convinced that baseball is COMPLETELY RANDOM. It's sold to us as if pitchers have all this control and all these different pitches and that batters can decide whether to foul one off to get to another pitch. But, what's really hapenning is one guy throws the ball as hard as he can to a target and the other guy swings the bat as hard as HE can to hit the ball. Everything else is just a random number generator - the trajectory of the ball, where it crosses the strike zone, where it hits the bat and consequently where the ball goes if it makes contact - it's all just random. So, what's the point of that?

I play soccer as a kid and it is very fun you get lots of exercise and its not JUST kicking the ball into ONE goal. There are many different positions to play you don't just run after the ball. I mostly play goalie it's a little painful vein the goalie though its fun to be a midfielder. So no soccer isn't just running after a ball it's about teamwork and fun! Also being competitive :P
Soccer is actually very exciting I've been playing it for 4 years and it is awesome I'm on the A team
Soccer may be fun to play, but it is boring to watch. Went to a big friendly match at Giants Stadium (I know it's not called that any more, but I refuse to give in) and noticed most of the "fans" were looking at their phones or each other rather than the field until the ball got near a goal. It was a high-scoring game, for soccer, but still managed to be utterly boring when no one was kicking at a goal. The enormous field and lack of structure makes much of the passing game pointless with constant turnovers that just lead to more turnovers. And one official for the whole field? How the heck is that supposed to work? Every game has at least one horrifically blown call because there was no one there but the cameraman to see it, and obviously, that makes it much easier to throw a game as an official. Why does anyone watch this, let alone care so deeply about it that they are incensed to form murderous mobs over it? Beats me.
That is such an American comment! So you went to a friendly match have decided that soccer (and by the way it's called football) is boring. So I guess you think baseball and American football are exciting? Players standing around, endless commercials and the occasional moment of action.

All forms of British recreation are some sort of torture. Masochism is just part of the national psyche. Watching cricket is a way for Englishmen to isolate themselves for all possible entertainment for days at a time and thus fulfill their patriotic duty.
Cricket is definitely the most boring sport. All that's worth watching is the last innings. There's zero back and forth scores in this game and what sport do you need to have a "run calculator" to determine how well you're doing? Ridiculous. Definitely the most boring sport in the world. Baseball has back and forth and values defense as well as offense. Cricket only values offense, it's like batting practice. Extremely inferior sport to baseball.
How can you call it a sport that goes on for days..
Cricket is a gentleman game and ultimate mental sport. There is a reason why no other sports is played for 5 days long. Because no one would watch it except for cricket. You need to see ashes to see excitement at best.

American football is nothing more than an hour of game play into a four hour event. It's total commercialism and the fans take it way too seriously. It's a game, take a breath, now get a life. - the_dude_abides
A game for boys trying to be men... I tried to watch it and couldn't, I grew up with rugby and comparing that to American football I just couldn't watch for a contact team sport this is boring only good thing is maybe a few good runners.
Also known as like everyone in the US. Well, not EVERYONE. I'm not a sports fan, and I can tell that this is the most boring. Just watching people throw a ball, run back and forth, and while this is "technically" a four hour game, about 80% of it is reserved for commercials. My parents love football, and when I hear my dad yelling in cheers about a caught football, I know he's watching it. At school, all I hear is just sports in general. And this is about like 90% of my class. I feel like the only one who's really into Nintendo, Sailor Moon, South Park, and Frozen. It's really boring not having anyone else to talk to who shares my interests.

You push a big rock and you pretty much broom your way to victory. So much fun.
I thought this was a joke sport made up by the simpsons writers, but it's not, it's a real sport. This fact was surprising for me. Have you seen how excited look the curling players? This is unreal.

Is this even a sport?!?!
I think gardening is a very boring sport. Speed carrot pulling? Bah! Potato punch? Who could care less! Banana throw? Maybe if they worked as boomerangs, that would be cool. Watemelon smash? A little Intresting... Avocado avalanche? Fun to watch, not to play. Turnip Tables? Essentially a game of chess. Beet Beat? Pretending to be donkey kong.
The only sport that's worse to watch is professional house painting. OH NO, HIS STROKE IS FASTER THAN OURS! SPEED UP!

I love volleyball. Volleyball is life
I hate Volleyball. It's so flipping boring and slow, waiting for a ball and standing behind a net, hitting it and then repeat, while in sports like soccer, hockey, football etc there's much more action, and it requires you to run in order to help your team, which gives you that adrenaline. You do not get that adrenaline standing behind a net all day long.
Only thing hard about volleyball is running in the sand or getting balls slammed into your forearms. Other than that its kinda slow and boring and you really don't need that many people on a team, they barely cover any ground.
Vollyball is the worst sport in the whole entire world all u do is try and get the ball the the other side and also it suck for short people if u have seen any volleyball competition its natural that the team with shorter people are going to lose!V 20 Comments
How is basketball boring. You must not play basketball or watch it
Every argument against basketball on here could be made for any sport, other than it being high scoring, which, in my opinion, makes it more exciting. Basketball highlight plays are more exciting than most other sports, rivaled only by American Football. You guys obviously haven't watched very much basketball if these are your opinions on the sport.
Basketball is just plain boring to watch even though it is fun to play. This game's rules are too simple and very few variations. Also it's hard to showcase player skills effectively on camera (other than precise dunking like robots). Not saying it doesn't require skill, it's just impossible to see and be excited watching a bunch of tall players taking turns in trying to dunk the ball in the basket in a small court back n forth.
This is so true! The ball is just dribbled up and down the court, and since there is such high scoring, there's nothing to out you on the edge of your seat. It's MUCH more fun when you play it. - EXPLAINdis

Are you seriously serious? Figure skating is NOT boring! It's hard and fun! Who doesn't wanna come and watch me skate in my sparkly dress and beautiful music, doing fast spins and high jumps. You've got to be kidding me.
This sport is actually very fun! And to that person who said its girly, why don't you watch your fellow guy supporters figure skate around the room! And for your info, I hate twilight!
I'm not a figure skater, I have no idea how the scoring works or what the moves are, but I think it's very artistic and graceful and I really enjoy watching it. Skaters can skate twice as good as any hockey player and can do anything a dancer can with better artistic flow and balance. It can be relaxing, intense or just downright enjoyable. This really shouldn't be on the list. - SassyEquine

I think that tennis is the most amazing sport and I play it as much as I can. Who can dis it because you are missing out on all of the fun. I agree with all those amazing people out there that agree that it is an amazing sport. If you don't like it you are a spoil sport. Just get in the mood and play. It is amazing!
Oh my gosh! Tennis is awesome! I play it and it rocks! Whoever siad this is wrong. There is something wrong with the person who siad this. If you play it (like I do) then you will understand how fun and difficult this is.
You guys are insane...
I've played tennis for 7 years and is truly fun, but only sometimes fun to watch. People who hate on it don't understand true sports. One comment said that the groaning is annoying, which it can at times, but dude, they are tired as hell, hitting a ball at something in the range of 100-140 mph, so obviously they are tired. It is a great sport.
Yay! You hit a ball! FIVE POINTS! Fun. - SwiftdawnV 28 Comments
How is this not in the top 3? Basically this sport is waiting an hour for a fish to bite the hook. Then you release it after all you've waited. That's it. Catching a fish may be exciting, but waiting for one to bite is an absolute bore!
I guess flatlanders who live in farm country might not think it's a sport, but 3/4 of the earth's surface is covered by OCEAN.
The fish can be HUGE, there are SHARKS that you can fish for directly, or that come up and attack your catch right in front of you.
A 500 pound marlin or tuna takes massive muscles to bring in.
Oh never mind, just stay in your backyard ponds and away from me.
Fishing and hunting are no sports. Anything that involves a party that does not know they are part of the sport, like the fish, shouldn't be classified as a sports. Fishing is a survival skill everyone should know, but calling it a sport is like calling competitive grocery shopping a sport. The ultimate goal of fishing is the same as pushing a grocery cart... to provide dinner.

I love dancing with my homies
Boring to watch, UNLESS we are talking about exotic dancing.
Hi my names David Bailey and I love to dance. Dance is like my love, dance is life to me. When I dance it's better than masturbating, I lie in bed at night thinking oh my geez when is my next dancing sesh... I like to dance alone however I get moist when dancing with other male dancers. We like to buy girly costumes with sparkles. Peace.

Horseback riding is not easy. Lets have you train a 1800 pound animal who doesn't speak English and wants to throw you off its back. You have to learn to move and communicate with your horse using your whole body. Riding uses all the muscles in your body to speak to tour horse. You need to know how to discipline and correct you horse without getting frustrated and sloppy. You don't just point a horse at a 5 foot fence and expect it to have the perfect gaits and striding to make the fence effortless and clean. You've got to think of your course, the next fence, your posture, your corrections, your speed, your strides, and your horses mindset... All in the short time you have before your next fence. Higher level riders and horses make it look easy since they've had years of experience and practice.
This might be boring for some prissy person to watch but if you say its easy you have obviously never tried to ride a green broke five year old that doesn't know how to walk in a straight line, much less canter without bucking. You would't even be able to stay on my horse, I'd like to see all ya'll who said it's easy go do it.
Great sport for the wealthy. The athlete gets someone else to do all the actual jumping and running, namely the horse. Maybe if they shot short bows at moving targets while riding a horse at full sprint like the ancient Mongols during Genghis Khan's time, then that would be horseback riding.
Wealthy? I don't think so. This sport has made me poor, but I wouldn't give it up for anything. - Horsesrlife

What is rugby doing at number 50? Probably the greatest team sport there is! Must have been an American you made this list!
Rugby is by far one of the best sports the amount of team work it needs

Gymnastics is such a hard sport. I'd like to see other people try to do it. But it's also so exciting and just amazing.
Guys, did you read the title? This isn't the easiest sports list. You don't need to go into full detail about how hard it is to be a gymnast because honestly, we don't care. This is just what most people find to be the most boring sports to watch, even if they're hard. Plus, this is seventeenth on the list. It's not like you're even in the top five. - SassyEquine
Umm ya right gymnastics is the funniest hardest sport ever and it's mah life screw you weirdos...

I do think lacrosse is harder than most sports and way more fast passed that's including football because in football you get to stop every ten seconds for like a minute. And in lacrosse you have to be tough not only the goalie has to take a ball. Actually one of the rules for a defender is to try to have his goalie not to have to stop a ball at all that included taking a ball for him. And on average a freshman in highschool could through a ball 65 to 75 mph and in college could go up to 90+mph.
I play football and lacrosse and I have gone to state for both and I could say lacrosse is harder and honestly more
Fun. And I think that one day lacrosse will be more popular than football and maybe some day soccer.
Who ever put lacrosse at 31 thank you! What the world must realize is that lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet. Professional American Football players have said that lacrosse is much more difficult... Because it is! It is an hour straight of american football level contact while constantly running from a guy that wants to take your head off. The thing that I don't get is how Cheerleading bowling, and tennis came after this. CHEERLEADING isn't EVEN A SPORT! But not only do you have to run from the defense all over the field, you must also throw and catch a ball flying at 25mph, just for a gentle pass, with something that is a forgein object to your body. Enough said.
Lacrosse isn't boring because it's slow-paced, as it is a relatively quick-paced game. The problem with it is the fact that the the scores are too outrageously high (for one goal-one point standards) for anyone to be invested in. The defense can do virtually nothing to stop the offense from shooting, so lacrosse usually comes down to which goalie is worse. If there was a more reasonable amount of scoring, and more opportunity for the defense to counter the offense, then this sport would be far more interesting.
Lacrosse is the absolte bestV 15 Comments
It's bowling. Bowling, like Jim Gaffigan has said, is the last thing you do before you go hang yourself. Watching someone bowl is most likely what one does AFTER killing yourself isn't an option.
Bowling is a little boring to watch, but it's fun to play I think that bowling should be on the list but it should be last.
Baseball is not boring. The reason why they play 162 games is because they don't make much contact. It is fun to watch (maybe except for the Cubs and Astros). I watched all 97 Red Sox games this year and its even fun to watch when your team isn't playing great. - redsox123456789
There's nothing to bowling! I hate it when I have to just sit around forever waiting for my turn just to throw a ball. It takes practice to be good though so good job to thoughs people lol.V 17 Comments

I love tennis I play 30 hours per week and anyone who says it requires no skill has never played the sport competitively. 2012 Australian open final 5:53 and I ended an 2 AM. temperature never dropped below 106 and each player sprinted more than 15k. THAT is not an in athletic sport!
I saw a porno once that had a horse and a woman. That was interesting.
Ha, why don't you go get on a horse then? Thought so.
This is actually a really intense sport. I bet whoever put it on here has never even seen a polo match in their life. people make the misconception that it's like golf with horses, but really, it's like really intense field hockey but the ball is smaller and they've tossed in a bunch of hyped up horses. Really fast paced and interesting. - SassyEquineV 6 Comments
And now it's an Olympic Sport. It's the most BORING thing to watch AND to play. You smash a tiny ball off a paddle back and forth until the ball jumps away from you. It isn't very fun, or necessary to exist - kaitlynrad11

I'm a committed rower. And while it is one of the hardest sports in the world, It's relatively boring. The last 30 seconds are usually pretty interesting and maybe the first 30 but that's it!
I'd have to agree with this one. While it is very intense and demanding from the rower's point of view( don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on rowers. Y'all are very strong and I admire your determination) it is very boring to watch. I bet it would be fun and challenging to do though. - SassyEquine

"You sit there hit a ball it went into the hole yay it's so damn easy."
And that's so damn ignorant; barely even qualifies as English.

Cycling I understand may be boring if you watch all of a road race. But trust me if you're racing it's the most fun you'll ever have. Try watching Track cycling as you can see all of the action.
Wow this number 29 THIS is the most BORING sport in the world! All it is is a bunch of people in tight clothing riding bicycles for hundreds of miles! All you need to watch in cycling is ten seconds and you got the whole idea of the sport.

Umm excuse you, no that's not how it works. it may require a lot of money to own a horse, but I can tell you that the stereotypes you get form television is nothing even near the truth. officals check the horse for drugs before and after the race, so the steroids is completely incorrect. it is a sport, id really like to see you try to actually RIDE a horse. and don't come to me saying that you've gone on a trail ride when you were six, that doesn't count. I mean like getting all the tack ready, jumping, racing kind of sport. I will bet you anything that you will fall off, or at least be SUPER sore in the morning.
Horse racing is hard, but it is bad that you people take all the credit, it's not like you guys are carrying a really heavy human, and trying to run really fast when there pulling your neck.
What's so exciting about watching horses run in circles for only ONE lap at a time? Talk about BORING.

So boring! It is a slow version of ice hockey except that the players miss the ball half the time and can only use the side of the stick. On top of that, they can't keep possession so it turns into a boring hacking fight! Then when the ball is near the goal, all you have to do is find some way to hit it on target and it's a goal because the keeper can't stop such a little ball from going in a big goal. It is officially my least favorite sport. I'd rather watch golf NASCAR any day.

I'd rather watch this than NASCAR
Without them, these races will get as processional as the Schumacher era was, when races were fixed to favour him and his team because they are connected to an expensive road car brand with lots of badge pedigree. This is why they need KERS and DRS to WWEify the races. If I want to watch fixed sport, I would watch wrestling, not motorsport.
Plus the driver's wimp attitude gets me, like Michael Schumacher saying Le Mans is too dangerous for him and Lewis Hamilton whine about blowouts even at 100mph.
To many buttons and driver aids. Just give them a steering wheel and a gear stick, make the driver be the star not the car.
