My sister tore her ACL doing this and I have hurt myself doing it too. Lots of people die doing this wonderful sport. How is it not first? - Horsesrlife

24 Test Cricket

Crickets unusual in that it is completely allowed and expected for the bloke who is bowling to have a number of key intentions. If he's good at it he's throwing (Bowling) a rock hard ball at 90 + mph trying to hit the geezer with the bat on the body somewhere - head, toes, throat, testicles, fingers, all of them relatively vulnerable. It is one of two or three key intentions and everyone plays the game knowing and accepting that this is the case - he is trying to hurt you, if you stand there trying to stop him from hitting the stumps.

But, the same bowler whilst he is trying to hurt you, if you're good enough and fast enough you are completely within your rights to smack the ball back at the bowler with your bat with the intention of injuring him, sending he message... 'Mate if you want to try and hurt me, have some of this'. If you've got any doubts about the levels of aggression and violence find your self a cricket player and just play catch with them using a cricket ball. ...more

A cricket ball is extremely hard and dense and can easily break bones (and sometimes even kill) at speeds above 80 mph. Short pitched bowling is a legitimate tactic used to scare and intimidate the opposition batsmen. Sledging is mentally testing and considering the fact that one has to undergo a combination of physical and mental barrage for over 5 days, test cricket is one of the most brutal sports out there.

29 Cheerleading

And yes I am one. I'm a young flier that's 4 foot 3. We work harder then any soccer football lacrosse player I know. Oh and we don't play cheerleading because it's more important. Every time we go up in the air we are risking our lives. I'm a flier and I put so much trust on my bases to keep me alive. Oh and to all those weak football players that throw 2 pound balls when we throw 100 pound girls in the air, and we actually catch ours. Ok u still don't believe cheerleading is a sport. The definition of a sport is to have fun and get exercise.

Football players aren't weak. Don't disrespect us and we wont disrespect you. - SuperCharged

Hey each time a player shoots the goalie risks his life a dense ball that's hits your neck and crush your windpipe

Ok, I know what your thinking. Vollyball is not violent. Except for the ball. It is so big and you wear no pads. If the ball hits you in the face, your doomed. Also, it could hurt your hands if you hit it the wrong way.
