Top Ten Most Boring Sports
The Top Ten Most Boring Sports
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
I LOVE sports. There are only a few sports that I don't like to watch, and golf is one of them. Playing it is great fun but watching it is like watching paint dry. Now, let's review other sports on this list:
Baseball: agreed. Very boring to watch. I tried several times, but I just HAD to change the channel every time.
Football (not soccer, football): One of the best sports to watch of all! Why is it on here?
Nascar - I never had a chance to watch it but after seeing highlights on Youtube I realized how boring it is to watch
Cricket - similar to baseball, very boring to watch just like baseball, the only difference between those two sports is that cricket lasts longer, making it worse than baseball.
Gardening - it's not a sport, who put it on here?
American football - too many commercials, boring to watch, it's better to watch rugby
Curling - a VERY overhated sport. It is not slow, not boring to watch, screaming is a little bit annoying but there's always an ...more
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.
It is like the game is only consist of 3 players -- pitcher, incompetent batter & catcher; it is not fast or curve ball, but no matter what ball it is to hard to hit, because it's a show of dominance to strikeout a batter but a game of chance to hit the ball, let alone a boring home run
They're making a left turn! They're making another left turn! I wonder what's going to happen next! So thrilling...
I would die if I had to watch nascar. we. the cars go around. and around. and around. BORING!
Even Hannah Montana is better to watch than watching people drive in circles
Go fast, turn left...FOR THREE HOURS! How on earth has this been popular in the United States for over 50 years?
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.
Watching guys run around chasing a ball in order to get it in a net sounds kinda gay. No offense intended
While I'm sure it would be interesting to watch, I've heard that matches can go on for days, especially the test matches. Have better standards.
How can anyone sit there for a whole day to watch these people hit the ball every 5th ball
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.
It is fun for cricket players to play for five days and l love cricket
Whoever put this down as a sport must be high on the weed they are growing
Is this even a sport?!?!
Who ever put this down must be high on the weed they are growing
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.
You push a big rock and you pretty much broom your way to victory. So much fun.
Whew. The worst and yet people like pushing coloured rocks down an icey lane while freezing to death. Worse than bowling, and saved for the incontinent of mind and drawers. Bad sport that couldn't get more boring.
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.
My father was born in Scotland but even I agree Scotland should have kept curling to itself it and buried it at least as far as a spectator sport or a TV sport to watch. Lawn bowling on ice. Yawn.
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
By that logic all sports are scripted and full of commercials - germshep24
I think most sports are boring to watch, but a lot can be fun to play. American football is like most sports, boring for me to watch, but I think It's insanely boring to play, too.
Fun to watch, especially the part where the Cleveland Browns went 0-16 - KingSlayer93316
Really boring to watch people tackle each other it is also really slow moving - Savagekid69
I love volleyball. Volleyball is life
Super boring just another sport of chucking balls with your hands
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.
I hate volleyball, a lot of girls in my homeroom play it and talk about it. It just sucks. - Luckys
The players are so tall scoring is no problem. The rap/hip-hop association makes the reputation of the sport worse and hurts the reputation of the players. Teams can get as many as 200 points. In the closing seconds coaches will deliberately foul out their players in order to stop the clock despite it doing almost nothing.
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
Cross Country is on here but not Track & Field unless you think the two are the same sport which they aren’t. - Yankees2003
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.
So mickey mouse esp. when they do their triple this or quad that, and almost fall over cos they no longer have any speed. Looks so lame, but so uppercrust as to nauseate. Between the smell and the dreadful near-stops, pass the popcorn?
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 am OFFENDED I do figure skating and I have NEVER been more offended in all my LIFE
The only good thing is watching those skirts away back and forth
You gotta be kidding me right now. Australian Open is awesome
If it wasn't for the BBC constantly pushing tennis it would disappear within months. In all my years no one has ever said "did you see that fantastic game last night" or similar. It is a game for the elite pushed by the elite who run the BBC.
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...
American football exists because of these brats playing with an egg
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
Best sport ever clearly an American made this list thinking that their sports are the best not even acknowledging any other sport outside of the US
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
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.
Umm ya right gymnastics is the funniest hardest sport ever and it's mah life screw you weirdos...
Gymnastics is so interesting. And it is really hard. You go outside and do a full. Ha ha.
This is something you do at a bar or in your garage, not something that should be shown on T.V. or have the champion be reported on Wikipedia.
its not even a sport.. you throw stuff at a board.. woahhh! real amazing!
Its hard to do but extremely boring! Grass growing is more entertaining and watching crickets jump too!
I think they would be better off throwing the darts at each then they can really score where its at.
One of my friends does contemporary dance and it is so boring. Its not even a real sport!
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.
Equestrian events are all hype and money with the event only taking like a minute, save for dressage which is not as hard on the horse.
Horse riding is the best when you do cross rails (jumps) it feels like you are flying and when you gallop or canter it fells like you are flash and your horse good be funny
Horse riding IS A SPORT and it is definitely not boring. It's very exhilarating, so much fun and great exercise if you know how to ride properly. There's nothing as rewarding as riding a horse at a canter or gallop. However, it is also a dangerous sport. I had a serious accident many moons ago and nearly died but eventually I started riding again and it was great.
Skeleton is a sport where you get on a tiny ass board and slide down a bobsled course headfirst. Not boring at all. - MattAffterburner
What the heck is skeleton? I mean I have never heard of that sport... I mean can someone explain what the sport SKELETON is?
WHAT THE HELL IS SKELETON?
Skeleton is a fast winter sliding sport in which a person rides a small sled down a frozen track while lying face down. The sledder goes relatively fast, but other than that, not much is very entertaining.
Man but some people actually like it and even compete for money doing it! Hard to imagine a more boring thing even if playing it. Takes some finesse but if the lane sucks, gotta learn some english and then get lucky. Anyone suggest this dog, suck in one’s breath and suggest another event rather than waste time on this dog.
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.
I am surprised this is at number 17. It probably should be up there with golf and NASCAR.
Guys, you have to realize the is MOST BORING SPORTS. If you've already forgotten that, you need mental help. Stop reading this and go see a phycologist, because you have brain damage
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.
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.
I think polo is a very fun sport even when it comes to watching it you can end up learning some tricks
Great sport and lotsa fun. If can hit the other side of the creek, will win a flat tire. Well, better than bowling and curling for sure!
I didn't know spitting anything from your mouth could even be considered a sport. Stupid. - jazzbea
What kind of sport is this? I don’t like cherries, so this sounds disgusting to me - KingSlayer93316
There are actually championships... - Martin_Canine
I love hitting Big balls as far as I can
It's the same as Baseball.
Except Rounders was invented first, baseball came after rounders - FefeCat
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
So cool and a great way of having fun without too much physical action
It's boring tennis with the players bigger than the court, not the other way around. In fact, maybe it is baseball + tennis minimized. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
It's great, not boring! But it is, I almost fell asleep when my dad made me watch it - Swiftdawn
We had a squash team at my middle school. To this day I still have no idea what squash is. - RobertWisdom
Squash is an amazing sport with long and exciting rallies
Squash isn't just hitting it against a wall
Better than athletics watching someone run round and round a track is so boring
Wind her up and flail away and it goes 15 yards if lucky. How to put big men and women into the field to see who’s got the libido. Nah change the channel. This is so dead.
The women's shot put is great because you can see all the ladies in one place who would be physically superior to a man if they were married.
Men's shot put z
Oh let's throw a 2kg ball 23m
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
Rowing is one of the best sports there is!
Sorry, to all the rowers out there, but it is very boring!
Yikes. Sit on the bridge, in the boat ... hours and hours and hours, and then get back home exhausted, sunburned, and imagine, wanting to go back do it next weekend. Man, but some people love boring!
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!
Not a sport. Something Grandpa does with his son and grand son in the summer. - RobertWisdom
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.
It is an amazing sport! How is is under top 50?
So boring it's not really a sport and it's so un active
Zzz. If it were Netflix, I'd watch it.
Boxing is not that boring compared to other sports and it deserves to be a little bit lower in the list. The only time it DESERVES to be number ONE is when Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights.
This is a disgrace to sports, they punch each other and they start bleeding
I know this sport is hard and everything, but it is SO boring to watch. - SassyEquine
I'd like to see you guys step into a ring with a muscular dude who is trying to beat you up
It is the sport which is at it's most boring form ever All you need to do is touch the opposition team members going into their territory and later come back to yours
I had this once! Bed ridden for days!
Erm whats this
Ya'll will plead this and vote for this for your entire life until someone shoot they arrow into the exact center.
I love archery! Way better than throwing a ball around and tackling each other. At least explain why you hate it. Hunger Games forever.
Oh! Hunger Games! The best thing that happen to the "sport"
I like Archery but a lot of the time I find myself wishing I was doing theater class instead of Archery class.
I have seen tournaments of this sport. 95% of players are old people 60 years and up. But it is kind of fun seeing a feeble old man riling a ball down a very long grassy lane in order to get close to a ball on the other end and see him dance in victory in front of a annoy old woman.
Geriatrics pretending they are in the real bowling alley at 35 years old. Mediocrity personified in old age, better have some ‘have you ever heard...’ stories along for the sit.
"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.
There are no holes in billiards; that would be pool, formerly known as pocket billiards.
The fact that you think it easy says you've probably never played, at least not seriously.
So boring it's not funny
You sit there hit a ball it went into the hole yay it's so damn easy
No one likes snooker except Ash... But no one likes Ash
Fun to play. Terrible to be forced to watch.
I hate how everyone is so excited always about the rugby and hates on other suburbs because of the rugby. Divides people/suburbs, not bring them together.
Rugby is not really that much like football. I'm just posting this to let people know.
Rugby is way better then soccer,in soccer you just kick a ball up an down the field and nearly every body dives
This game is honestly the most pathetic thing in the world and an embarrassment to Australia.
Worst part of it is defiantly the fans, no passion, no selective seating, and for some reason they hate every other sport but this pus.
As an Australian, I am embracing the fact that world football (soccer) is now more played than AFL in this country.
Time to catch up to the rest of the world people!
Footy Is one of the best sports in the world what are you talking about an embarrassment to Aussies this is the sport the whole world should be playing it's the most hardcore game there is
Joke of a game men kicking a ball around. Poor tactics simply no reason it is a mix of every bad sport.
These guys are all drunk
Love on my phone but when it comes to real life all you do is hit with a pole
8 ball pool is fun to play on my phone
... billiards, pool ... whatever
Pool is the best sport ever so screw off bitch
Jump forward, touche. Takes one second. All due to the technologically-advanced suits they wear nowadays. So boring.
This is the most boring sport maybe it isn't even a sport...
Fat people sport
This sport doesn't make sense
Smash the birdee and it goes nowhere. Takes skill to hit a slow moving object with a lightweight bat. But mostly just plain boring.
It's really fun to play, though
Love 2 play it
Snooker is not an instrument or a trashy night club. You know what pool is right?
How the hell is this not number 1? Have any of you even watched snooker? I would quite gladly rather watch paint dry.
What the heck is snooker? Sounds like some trashy night club... - SassyEquine
What the hell is snooker? - RobertWisdom
Herky-jerky wing-nuts trying to throw out their hips. Gross-looking and boringly dull. Wanna watch that kind of thing? Any long distance or sprint track racing!
Just looks like emaciated incontinent people hustling to the restroom
You watch people walk to a finish line! What is the point in that? There is even a 'certain technique' to the walking! Why should people get a medal for walking?
For people who want a Olympic gold medal but can't run.
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. Pedal pedal pedal pass pedal pedal pedal, grab water bottle pedal pedal cross finish line YAY it's finally over!
If you say it is boring look at your mirror
I don't mind cycling, but can all these amateur wannabes please stop wearing tights with sponsors as if they ever were sponsored!
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 love hockey. It’s always a joy to watch people hit a puck around and crash into a wall or other players - KingSlayer93316
Are you kidding? Hockey is love. Hockey is life
I love hockey! UNFORTUNATELY it is the most rigged sport after WWE wrestling. It's controlled by old rich dudes that stack the cards in their favor.
I have been a competititive speed walker for 30 years now and I can tell ya IT ID HARD. I dislocate my hip everyday and once I started coughing so hard My eyes came out their socket's and through my nose and ears. - failross
This is not walking, this is actually mincing.
Who needs to walk when you can 3/4 jog
Why even on here
Arrm wrestling is not a sport. Neither is arm wrestling.
It's boring you just move your hand back and forth with someone else
Arm wrestling is just an excuse for closet homosexuals to hold hands without people suspecting they are gay.
Why does it exist
The sport requires much more than just swimming on shooting. A certain type of treading is required, and you can only use one arm to catch and shoot. Defense and offense switch, swim off, subs, not to mention defensive positions, take a lot of practice. The idiots who think it is easy have a mental block
As the guy above me said, all you do is "plash"
All you do is plash in water
Why does this sport exist
This one is listed twice, once here and once under American football. This list is faulty.
Yes! Finally someone puts this on here.
Boring to watch, fun to do
I haven't seen this many sweaty dudes groping each other on the floor since the great homoerotic San Fran orgy of 1987.
Boring sweaty guys grappling each other, yawn
I love knocking out people
Rolling on floor for minutes it,s just boring
