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 Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship more.

Ummm EXCUSE ME! And to think that people say that American football IS A SPORT! It's pretty obvious that whoever wrote this dumb and FALSE list has never been on a horse. I'd like to see you ride and control and 1200+ pound animal that has a mind body and soul of its own! You have to trust your life with that horse and communicate through body cues and signals with a whip or crop. My brother tells me that equestrianism isn't a sport but he's too scared to even go near a horse because he thinks he's gonna get kicked. Try having that fear CONSTANTLY while being on their back, maintaining perfect posture and keeping your horse calm and collected. Horses can get spooked, refuse, buck, rear, nip other horses etc, while sitting on their back with no escape except falling to the ground. Yeah it's just so "easy." I'm extremely insulted and to think that horse riding was FIRST on this stupid list and it physically makes me want to cry. Sorry for my rant, I just NEEDED to release my anger out ...more

Just watching football (soccer), a full grown man got mildly tackled and fell to the floor crying grasping his ankle, they replayed the "tackle", THE OPPONENT didn't EVEN TOUCH HIM! He just tripped! A full grown man falling to ground, a grass pitch, crying like he was just shot! I got chucked off my pony yesterday jumping and nearly crushed under her hooves, bearing in mind I'm 14 years old, I got back on laughing and jumped it again. End of.

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
