Sports That Shouldn't Be Considered Sports

In my opinion they just shouldn't be counted as sports and should be included in a different category.

The Top Ten

1 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding

Ok, what? This insults me so much. Why is this list even here? All sports should be considered sports. And to think football is considered a sport and horse back riding shouldn't be? I'm so insulted and my faith in this world is gone.

2 Cheerleading

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
