Best Sports to Watch On T.V.

Let's face it: A good majority of us are sports nuts. These are the best sports to watch on TV. They can be epic, funny, or just have awesome athletes. All right, let's go!
The Top Ten
1 Football American football is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end.

Could watch Football just about anywhere, this sport actual seems as loving in a strange way. They really do have nice spot positions to see it more interesting. The Quarterback, the Linebacker, the Left Backs, the Right Backs, and of course the Receiver. A great deal to sight in motion or passing as also much well. Good!

NFL all the way it is Americans favorite sport. Anything could happen in 1 second. Dallas Cowboys is Americans favorite team.

There is just so much violence, ovvertime's always fun, and this team relies on teamwork more than any other.

Because every play is potentially a big play. Blink and you can miss history.

2 Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

Hockey is such a nail-biting sport. One minute one team is on the attack then the next. It is such a fun sport to watch on T.V. and in person. Don't get me wrong, footba is definitely fun to watch but hockey keeps you on the edge of your seat. Especially playoff hockey. The players are playing at their best at all times and as the game goes on if it's a close game then you're definitely at the edge of your seat...


Hockey, by FAR. If you know the rules, and I mean REALLY know the rules, it is one of the most exhilarating sports there is. Plus, the fans of hockey teams tend to be really tight-knit and practically family so it's like you're watching your team with your brothers and sisters and cousins, all cheering for the same thing. people high-five each other and everyone's your friend, it's beautiful.

I am a basketball player, but hockey is the best to watch on T.V.. Action packed, hockey players need far more skill than football players no offense. Try skating around guys with the size and strength of football players who have a weapon at all times. More action, higher intensity, more fun to watch.

Ice Hockey is without a doubt the best sport to watch on T.V.. My favourite sport is soccer yet I can't watch a game without cringing at the dives, and slow ball movement. Hockey is fast-paced and ridiculously exciting.

3 Basketball Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard at each end.

Basketball is fun to watch when you think it is hard to hit a shot and it is very interesting when it all comes down to the wire in the end between a team and another. Basketball brings players from everywhere around America, basketball has all the best players and athletes like MJ, LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Paul George, Larry Bird, Shaquille O'Neal and many more, basketball is a team work sport and is packed with determination.

Action packed, fast paced basketball is amazing. By far the best. You don't get to see clutch situations in which more than 10 points are scored in any other sport than basketball. No dunks or amazing athletes such as LeBron James and Michael Jordan in any other sport.

Basketball is by far the best sport on the planet. It is the most beautiful game to play and to watch. NBA players are the best athletes in the world... They play 82 games during the year (plus the playoffs)... No question... Basketball is the best sport. Period!

The hoops shoot past everything! Basketball has had and does have amazing athletes like Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chris Bosh, LeBron James, etc. And it's jsut so action packed. Overall, basketball's my favorite.

4 Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players each. It is played with a spherical ball. The objective is to score the ball in the other teams goal.

Soccer is a great sport to watch, it is just that no one appreciates passing, running, moving into space etc.. Now all anyone wants to see is scoring

The game never stops. It is fun to play and watch. It requires tactics, skill, and know how.

Go around the world and ask other people I bet that 99.5% of the people will say (football) the real name

Requires a lot of technicality, long games, lots of tournaments!

5 Baseball Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.

Anyone that thinks baseball is worse than soccer doesn't understand baseball. Pitch counts, runners on base, and the lineup, make up more strategy than the pass and go of soccer. Each pitch something can happen and each batter is a small battle.

the chess of sports, so much goes on the viewer might not be aware of, so many stats for baseball nerds, team dynamics are exciting. If you have patience and enjoy sports, baseball can actually be really fun to watch, especially post season mlb or the college world series

Nothing beats the greatest sport ever invented!

6 Tennis Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each.

Heated rivalries, and has less action than other sports which is good and bad.

Most exciting sports than anything..

7 Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

If a match is played between two quality teams, it is the most entertaining sport to watch. But if it between two dull sides or even one dull team it is painful to watch this for more than 5 minutes.

Being an Indian, I love Cricket!

The best game in the world...

Should be at the top

8 Mixed Martial Arts Mixed martial arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts.

Punching, kicking, throws, takedowns, submissions, knockouts
Boxing. Muay Thai judo. Wrestling. Jiu-jitsu. Beautiful
Much more interesting then throwing a ball through a hoop
Or hitting a ball with a stick
More interesting fighters with different backgrounds from different countries with different styles
Different races white, black, Latino, Asian
Some tall some short some fat some skinny
And sometimes even female
Basketball mostly black and 7 foot

How can you not think MMA is the most exciting sport!?!? I do MMA and it is the best thing I have ever done besides play football in high school. MMA takes immense amounts of training focus, toughness, determination, guts, will power, agility, speed, strength, heart stamina endurance, shall I go on? All in all MMA should be at the top for many reasons most of all is that it's badass.

Seriously look up a UFC match on YouTube, watch it and tell me you weren't even a little bit excited at the sight of gladiators fighting each other in the most violent commercial and legal sport on T.V.. It should be MMA, Boxing, Rugby and then Football instead it's all backwards.

9 Rugby

This is so much tougher then American football, you want violence? All you use in rugby is a mouthguard. what do you have to use in American football? American football is for people who want to look tough but doesn't want to get tackled before they put on all their gear. Watching it though, is pretty cool!

Puts some other sports to shame. Rugby union is one of the best sports to watch live, especially the internationals. You require strength, speed, excellent cardiovascular endurance, agility, power and courage. Should be up there with MMA, Boxing, Football (the correct name for soccer'), table tennis and Aussie Rules Football

Rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen; soccer is a gentlemen's game played by hooligans.

10 Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

Swimming is entertaining from the start to the finish. We see swimmers such as Jason Lezak make astonishing comebacks in the 2008 Olympics and other swimmers such as Michael Phelps and Nathan Adrian dominate in the pool.

The Contenders
11 Boxing Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..

How isn't boxing number one. If you want violence go for boxing (I don't know why that's the first point for football being number one). Boxing has been around from the days of the egyptians.

12 eSports

Super fun to watch!

13 Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.
14 Cycling

Cycling is great, one of the toughest sports out there! People think they just sit back and enjoy the ride when most of them are suffering gruelling effort and going through tremendous pain to pull speeds like those you see in professional cycling. Cycling also requires super concentration as it's easy for a pack to crash and crashing is very painful so all 50-100 or more cyclists need to watch each others wheels over the course. Very skilled and incredibly fit athletes.

15 Bowling

Boring, but isn't it fun to see people get lots of strikes?

16 Australian Football

No breaks, big hits and rules so complicated that not even god understands what motivates the umpires. Highly recommended if you can get over the learning curve to appreciate whats going on.

17 Pool

VERY boring, but it baffles me why the winner of tournaments gets so much money.

18 Formula 1 Formula One is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and owned by the Formula One Group. The FIA Formula One World Championship has been one of the premier forms of racing around the world since its inaugural season in 1950. more.

Oh god!
F1 is the only good sport, I mean in football you only kick and kick again, in tennis you just swing a racket and in basket ball you only bounce a ball and throw it. I don't even understand how skateboard is supposed to be a sport

F1 is crazy and the drivers risk there lives doing what they love, they deserve so much respect for what they do, they walk away from crashes at crazy high speeds whilst footballers cry and fall to the ground when somebody touches them, f1 is a real sport for men

How do they even drive these things with no assists and for more than an hour and a half it's tense

19 Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.
20 Gymnastics Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring strength, flexibility, balance and control.

The most difficult sport out there. Not only is it physically changeling, gymnastics requires the athletes to push past Their fears. You don't twist upside down 12 feet In the air risking paralysis and death from a bad landing in Football. definitely the Most amazing to watch.

Gymnastics isn't on T.V. as much as football or baseball, but I think it's more fun to watch. I feel like gymnastics is more of an interesting sport. I'd rather watch gymnastics than watch people throw a ball.

Probably the most interesting, I mean, most of the other sports are just kicking a ball through a field into a goal.

You can flip with any move.

21 Triathlon
22 Golf Golf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes from a range of 80 to 600 yards on a course in as few strokes as possible.

There's always something going on, someone hitting a drive or a putt. There's never a break in the action until the last groups are on the last hole.

I went to the Masters once, Hated it.

Golf is number 1

23 Snooker
24 Figure Skating Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908. The four Olympic disciplines are men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dance.
