Sports That Shouldn't Be Considered SportsBeatlesboy9 In my opinion they just shouldn't be counted as sports and should be included in a different category.
The Top Ten
This is a sport! Do you footballers balance in a squat position on a 40 mph animal? Do you know that this animal could kill you in less that 3 seconds? Riders risk their lives every moment they tough a horse. And it is not abuse! Thoroughbred are born to race! The whip doesn't hurt them and they love to run!
Horse back riding is definitely a SPORT! Do you start bawling if the most important thing in your sport breaks, didn't think so. That most important thing in equestrianism is the bond between the horse and human, and the horse. One false move, like putting in an extra stride, or getting left behind, and not giving the horse his head could cost your life and horses life. In football people run into each and get tackled, not body slamed by a 1 ton+ animalike that they are supposed to be able to control. It's estimated that 25 million people will have horse riding related accidents. It is also estimated that 200 of them will be fatal. 200 people don't die every year in other sports! And these people are afraid to get on horses let alone go over jumps taller then them. Or do a dance with only your legs, seat, and slight movements. People don't see the practice and pressure we feel, the see the Olympians that make it look easy. There's a reason why football isn't in the Olympics and horse ...more
EXCUSE ME! I'm going to go on like the other millions of people who DO NOT agree with this list! Have you ever sat on the back of a flight animal 10 times your size, at 25mph with nowhere to escape except for down, WITH EXTREME FORCE!?!?! Obviously NOT! Have you ever danced with an animal who doesn't speak your language? Have you ever trusted an animal that could kill you with one single mistake? Have you ever felt the pressure of knowing that you have to do everything spot on correctly otherwise your In BIG trouble? Obviously NOT! I feel much better now! Why don't you think twice when you say Horse Riding isn't a sport!
I am so insulted! Horse riding is dedinetly a sport and whatever idiot wrote this has never fallen off a horse before, has never bonded with a horse before and is just an imbecile!V 13 Comments
This should be #1
Incredibly, incredibly insulting. This entire list infuriates me. You try holding a person in the air and knowing their life rests on your shoulders! Or try being the person in the air, and knowing a single mistake will paralyze you for life? Cheerleaders train hours and hours a day, and fit the definition of a sport in every way. They are not walking stereotypes, prissy, or queen of the school. In fact, they don't even use pom poms or shout out encouraging words "go team! ". It is the equivalent of a collaborated gymnastics floor routine where people are tossed into the air and hold on by one foot. See one competitive cheer routine and attend a standard four-hour practice before saying it isn't a sport.
And the inclusion of gymnastics on this list is nothing but pure ignorance to an incredibly difficult and physically strenuous sport. Possibly the only sport that requires you to be proficient in every single physical aspect and working every muscle in your body. Not to ...more - keycha1n
