Worst Sports


The Top Ten

1 Cricket 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.

Cricket is a full waste of time (6-7 hours), with no physical and mental exercise. There is no stamina build-up, no team management at one go, and not even feeling of unity while playing. It as total time waste. For E.G. everybody can easily compare the physical status of cricketers with any others sportsperson... Cricketers have worst health among all sports.

Cricket is a game of only 2 players batting, and one bowling... And if both out at zero... On GOD... You just sit and clap for others, AND if the two batsmen batted all 50 overs then other nine players sitting in stadium clap for the batsmen... It is truly worst sport in the world.. Thank GOD, most of the countries are not wasting time on cricket... It should be vanished from human society... It same of sensible and logical society of humans.

I am making a concerted effort to watch and learn Cricket. Overs. Wickets. Run rates. It is bad. Very bad. It is so bad that it is like a B-movie of the sporting world, so bad that I'll watch it just for the spectacle of it all. I can see how cricket would have been popular during the dark ages when serfs had nothing better to do. Now not all American sports are the best. Football (soccer to Americans) is my #1 sport. Baseball is my 2nd, and it is also a very slow game with strategy. The NBA is #2 on my dislike list, behind of course, cricket. I don't mind Union and League Rugby, they have rules that make sense. But try learning Cricket in under 30 minutes, no chance. Therefore it is #1 on my list.

Honestly I can say cricket is one of the better sports I play behind golf, basketball and touch rugby. The problem with cricket is how long it is. I however have no problem with this problem, because I have passion for this sport. Just like any sport you must have passion to bbe able to even consider playing a sport. This website is a waist of time if they are just going to pick out the most unique sports. Every sport has there followers so don't judge,

I don't like cricket oh no I love it

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

Why the hell is cricket no. 1? Cricket is a great sport! It has way more strategy than baseball. In baseball, you get 3 tries to hit a ball as ahrd as you can, then run as fast as you can to your base. And the strike rate for most players is like 0.345 or something. In cricket, you get much longer time to bat, there are different kinds of bowlers, and they play in a 360 degree field unlike baseball. Most Americans have no idea how good cricket is just because they haven't tried it.

Baseball has more strategy then cricket. In baseball, you have to hit it in a certain area which requires more skill then hitting it anywhere in an oval. You don't have to be in shape to play cricket while baseball players are in better health usually. Most Americans won't try cricket due to it taking more than 2 days to finish a game. - SteelCity99

I play cricket it's fun have you tried it? Most likely not so you shouldn't be ratting on something you don't know anything about and it's not reptitive like baseball and did you know that baseball comes from cricket baseball just has a few tweaks making the game boring. you should try cricket then tell us your opinion

This so-called sport is a complete farce and has no respectability. Big, fat, hamburger-faced slobs spitting tobacco and constantly grabbing their nut-sack. You have a fat, old clown scratching his nuts six times, yanking his earlobe 3 times, touching his knee, picking his nose, brushing his shoulder... and I could go on like this -- and so do they for just 1 pitch. The announcers and most of the fans have brain-down and are most likely retarded. T.V. empires force-feed this trash constantly. It is far too over-endorsed to the extent that there are abandoned baseball diamonds all over any North American city where there could be family parks. Personally, I am embarrassed just watching this circus, so I can just imagine the shamelessness of all those that are involved.

Its just the American version of Rounders, and no Rounders is not just played by girls. I remember boys playing it in P.E.

3 Cheerleading

Cheerleading is the worst sport in my opinion for multiple reasons. It is essentially a stereotype that has integrated into society that states that it is the only sport girls can play, which I absolutely DESPISE. Cheerleading is also just unnecessary. The fans already do the cheering. Not only that, but cheerleading is more dangerous than any other sport. There are no official regulations for protecting cheerleaders. Cheerleaders have damaged parts of their brain because of these unsafe regulations. Overall I believe cheerleading is the worst sport and shouldn't exist. - GreninjaGuy

For god sakes it should not be on the list cause its not even a sport if you say cheer leading is a sport your retarded.

Cheerleading is a sport, stupid. There isn't just sideline cheer, there's also allstar. And I bet that you can't do any of the things sideline or all-star cheerleaders can do! You're simply just jealous of them. Tennis should be on this list and it doesn't even deserve to be a sport, not cheer. Cheerleading is life.

Let me get this straightened out. Cheerleading should not be on this list, at least not in the top 10. If you're a dude, than fine. I understand why a dude wouldn't like cheerleading, but you should call it the worst sport. Heck, you've never tried it! Besides, some dudes like cheerleading. Those are the people I want to hang with, not you jerky guys that think cheerleading isn't a sport. I'm not being rude, I'm not talking to anyone specifically. I'm just saying my opinion like everyone else on this site, so don't hate. Also, not all cheerleaders are rude obnoxious girls who think they are better than anyone else. Movies and T.V. shows have that stereotype, but it's not true. Most cheerleaders are really nice. Some might be mean, but you can't just assume. You don't have to put on makeup for cheerleading all the time. Some teams might require that, but my school doesn't. I know other teems that don't require that either. Another thing, CHEERLEADING IS A SPORT. If you say cheerleading ...more

Though I don't agree, I will admit you do bring up some good points. - GreninjaGuy

Cheerleading is the best special needs cheerleading exists now and I am one of them 🌹

4 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

What soccer should not be on list it's the best game ever!

When it's on the list and it's written soccer this can only mean one thing. Americans.

You guys can't just insult Americans like that. Who do you think you are? I happen to be AfricaN- American and I don't appreciate your tone.

Soccer is one of the most amazing sports and maybe you should play the game before you say something about it ok I play soccer and it is a lot more complicated than just "men kicking leather around for 90 minutes" it takes skill and talent. No doubt about it.

Cme on people

5 Football Football American football is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end.

People who say football takes no skill clearly have never even bothered to look at the game, this game is the most athletic and cerebral game in existence, people say the players are stupid, fat, out of shape, whatever you wanna say but every single player is probably in better shape than you, see if you can memorize several different plays, bench 500 pounds and run a 4.6 40. It takes more skill and more intelligence to match up and try to overpower and outsmart the other team than any other sport in the world

I don't like football (American) that much but it definitely isn't a bad sport. It's very interesting, physically demanding, and mentally. Man! JUST SO MANY RULES >_< I wanted to play it when I was younger but didn't know the rules at all so I couldn't try out for my school team. Lol.

The most overrated sport ever. The only sport where a couple of dudes who don't even step foot on the field can win/lose a game for their team. Less about athleticism and more about "play calling".

Obviously it should read American Football, because the real people know that football is the one listed above under "Soccer". Americans can't play the best game in the world, so they give it a different name, which only they use for it, and create their own game, which has around a minute of "play" for every 5 minutes of standing around and advertisement breaks, and even have the audacity - despite the fact that the ball is rarely ever kicked during a match - to call it football. Logic and America don't belong in the same sentence.
The rest of the world will continue to focus on being good at the sport which matters most, and is the undisputed, biggest and greatest sport in the world; the one you call soccer.

6 Golf 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.

I have played this game for 3 years now, I am now 15 and I am still trying to get to single figures. Whilst I am the best golf player my age in the state I still am improving my game every day of the week. This sport takes great accuracy and persistence. If you havn't watched or played the sport you really shouldn't judge. This great sport is known as the greatest social sport in the world. Whilst being one of the best paying sports in the world. So give it a go you can make millions and live a life like tiger woods at his peak.

Just so you guys know golf is one of the most deadly sports in the world... (Falling trees, lightning bolts and golf balls to the head claim many lives each year) its not even a laughing matter

YES. Everyone is saying "oh, golf is the toughest sport! We have to walk around fields with our golf equipment, even though mostly we ride gold carts around." Like really, idiot, the only physical thing in golf is hitting the ball in a hole people are like "it takes mad skill to hit the ball in the hole." what!?!? Have you TRIED a real sport? God.

Golf isn’t even a sport. It’s just hitting a ball into a hole. No athletiscm whatsoever.

7 Muggle Quidditch

Only absolute dorks play this fantasy game.

Not only is this muggliness one of the worst sports in existence, but it also has the dumbest people in the world running the organizations. For example, USQ prohibits high schools from playing college teams and community/ adult/ elderly teams. And since there is essentially zero high school teams it's literally impossible to start a high school team and expect to have any sort of fun whatsoever. Drastically hindering their potential (which they didn't have much to begin with) to grow the sport. Not only this but now USQ has split college and community teams into two separate pools. This will drastically hinder their growth once again. Not to mention that college and community teams are so spread out as it is that now it would be insanely difficult to ever play games, especially with a variety of teams (assuming that you're lucky enough to even have a single team near you). The question is: how is anyone insane enough to play Muggle Quidditch suppose to have fun at all?!? Since Muggle ...more

Who the crap even plays this game it's just a bunch of Harry potter nerds running around doing probably athletic stuff, but still why would you play this game

it sucks

8 Nascar

I thought this was a list about sports, not about ovals. What's exciting about a group of cars that all drive the same speed all going in the same direction and all turning left at about the same time? I'd rather watch paint dry. Actually, I'd rather watch cricket. As far as car racing goes, NASCAR is the absolute worst. I wouldn't put car racing on my top 10 worst sports list, but NASCAR is way up there. Formula 1 is exciting and involves actual driving skills. Dirt tracks and dirt bikes are fun to watch. Do everyone a favor and simply abolish NASCAR.

Not sure why this is not toward the top. Only sport that uses a comprehensive mechanical component.

How come in car-racing the driver takes all the limelight, but in horse-racing it is the horse? Whomever had the eye to find this as a sport probably argues and lobbies for anything being a sport.

All car racing is bad. why, because it wastes fuel and it is bad for the environment.

10 Basketball 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.

Best sport how is it even on here?

Basketball is the best sport ever! The worst "sport" is bull riding.

Basketball easily has the worst officiating of any sport. The rules are terrible! They are ambiguous, yet they are enforced with technical precision. A team can benefit from committing penalties, and players are getting almost too good. The sport needs a serious overhaul. Basketball is a sport for children and adults with short attention spans to watch.

Only Tennis is more ridiculously back-and-forth. Some great athletes and athleticism but a lot of trash-talking, elongated degenerates also. 2 or 3 steps in the lay-up; well they will never call traveling. Deciding who really committed the foul is also a coin-toss. It is only worth watching the highlights.

The Contenders

11 Australian Rules Football

Stupid game, this unprofessional game is not worth watching, very little structure or strategy is required to play. A consolation point is given if a goal is missed! The whistle blows unbelievably regularly stopping the game for some stupid reason for a stupidly long period of time leaving very little actual game time where the ball is actually in play! When watched it resembles a cross between young school children (in dire need of some adult intervention) playing a made up game in the school yard at lunch break and a squabbling pack of Hyenas. Worst Game ever.

Just because it mentions Australia in the Tiltle don't judge it as a bad sport. This sport takes a great amount of fitness and endurance to get through a whole game. Kicking a ball across a 180 metre or 250 yard field. With an average kick being 35 metres or 60 yards. For 30 minutes over 4 quartes coming to 120 minutes of back and fourth playing. I would like to see who would win interms of the average American guy vs the average Australian guy. And this sport is becoming a sport if many races. It now includes a lot if the African nationalities playing the game.

Footy is a game of skill, stamina and endurance and it deserves more recognition around the world as one of the most interesting sports because there are so many things you can do

Why are the poor people from VIC SA AND WA brainwashed by this waste of time. Rugby League is better. Period. - coolguy101

12 American Football

Just fat guys playing a game where it should take 1 hour to play but takes 4 hours plus they have two teams in there own side to play the game. Also they wear pads and helmets show these guys a game of rugby league they wouldn't last five seconds

Football may be entertaining, but the fact of the matter is way too many people get hurt. That is going to ruin the franchise and will be the end of football. What I don't understand about you people is that you're so closed minded, you spend your time saying things like "it's pointless" or "I heart football", these statements have little meaning and you must play the game to understand how it works.

Shouldn't be called "Football". Too slow between plays and all the bloody commercials. European Football is the real football. Done in under 2 hours and two 45 minute halves of non-stop play.

I ❤️ football

13 Skateboarding Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.

I just want to be on the comment list

If you count snowboarding it's a sport

Not a sport. Just teens messing around on the street.

Its fun when your board (See what I dide there! )

14 Curling

I feel like the people who play this sport are retired janitors with lots of experience mopping and scrubbing

Soccer got more haters but this is to me truly the most stupid sport I've ever seen!

As a spectator, when one becomes embarrassed simply just watching, you know it is a pathetic (sport)

This is the only sport on the list that I can't understand why ANYONE would want to watch. Or play. There's no point.

15 Lacrosse 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.

Lacrosse is the best thing that ever happened to me. Growing up on the East Coast, I learned that lacrosse is not just a sport, it is a way of life. I had the amazing opportunity to grow up around the best sport in the world. Lacrosse is not very far from becoming mainstream.

This is stupid, Lacrosse is higher up on the list than Frisbee Golf. Lacrosse is way better than Frisbee Golf. Oh and if you think lacrosse is mostly stabbing someone with a stick, you should not even leave a comment.

I love lacrosse laugh out loud

16 Rugby

This is about the only sport free of any superficiality. By far the best and most respectable athletes. It is sad to see so many stupid, so-called sports like baseball network block rugby from the North American market.

I hate it, it's so hard and everyone else pressures you. And I'm 15 and I do this at school

Such a great sport... The team spirit is great and the players aren't retards like in soccer/football!

Most autistic sport ever

17 Field Hockey

Not only is this the spawn of Satan but apparently 2.5 billion people follow this toss. You telling me that 1/3 of people follow this! I know none of them. Do you think the starving people in Africa are more concerned about FIELD HOCKEY when they don't have drinkable water?

So let me get this straight. Football, Baseball, and Ice Hockey are all in the top 10 but field hockey isn't even mentioned! It's so stupid! It makes every other sport look like Wii Sports! - dudesterravensfan

What a load of absolute waste of space and effort, who went to lengths to create such a bad game? It's football with sticks.

Baseball is harder you dumb. You have.3 seconds to react to a 90 mph fast ball being thrown from 60 feet and you have.1 seconds to decide where you want to hit it

18 Volleyball 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.

I currently play volleyball and the only reason I do it is to give me something to do in the fall. This sport is so easy to play. I'm not saying it's the easiest, but it doesn't take that much skill to be good. Also, it's basically the same play every time. Bump. Set. Spike. Bump. Set. Spike. It gets boring over time. Anyway, this is my opinion. I'm sure others might love it and that's fine. I just think it's not that interesting.

How the heck is volleyball on worst sports list? Volleyball's one of the hardest sports I've ever played! You throw yourself to the ground to get a ball that can be going 70mph and jump an average of 300 times per game!

Volleyball is the most amazing sport around! If you think volleyball is stupid your stupid.

Volleyball is awesome. The idea sounds dumb and that's what I thought but when I first played it was awesome. What I appreciate is on a volleyball team you can't have rivalries or ball hogs like in football or basketball, everyone has to work as a team and communicate

Volleyball girls <3

It's not boring if the girls are hot though

Netball is one of the worst sports I have ever herd of. When I have the ball I have to stop and when I am trying to defend the goals I have to stop and let the other team have a shot. to all the donkeys that play this stupid sport have to go get help from a mental doctor

It's so boring to watch
