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 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

2 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.

3 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.

4 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.

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.

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 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.

8 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.

9 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!

10 eSports
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 Rugby Rugby league football, usually called rugby league, league, rugby or football , is a full contact sport played by two teams of thirteen players on a rectangular field.

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

13 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.

14 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.
15 Pool

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

16 Bowling

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

17 Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.
18 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.

19 Beach Volleyball Beach volleyball is a team sport played by two teams of two players on a sand court divided by a net. It has been an Olympic discipline since the 1996 Games.
20 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... read 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

21 Volleyball Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.
22 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.

23 Darts
24 Triathlon
25 Kickboxing

K-1 is a great and underrated fighting organization, no doubt about it, better than boxing at anytime.
