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.

Such a bad sport

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.

Should be banned

It's so BORING!

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

This sport is very confusing

Most garbage sport to ever exist

Baseball is TERRIBLE.. Why do they play 170+ games per year? That takes a horrible "sport" and makes it even MORE boring.

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.

3 Cheerleading

Cheerleading isn't a sport. The only people that participate in it as a "sport" are the people that weren't good enough to make it in something like gymnastics and wanted to feel better about themselves.

Its just straight bad

Not a fan at all.

Very useless and boring "sport".

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!

Why soccer is #1 sport because it's simple to follow and understands, unlike Rugby or American Football, also you can play it anywhere with ease

IT IS NOT the best sport or 2nd in fact the only sport where you fear for your life for wearing wrong teams jersey, the only sport that started conflicts between nations, the only sport that drives fans to smash cars, destroy shops and attack everyone insight, the only sport where it's always the ref fault not because the other team played better, the only sport where ref is completely disrespect, the only sport where everyone fakes an injury, the only sport were teams choose to draw, one of the lowest scoring sports (don't say strategy; missing a kick in font of an empty goal has nothing to do with strategy)... I could go all day long

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.

There is nothing more boring to watch than a soccer game. If you've seen one game you've seen them all. You can leave a soccer game, go to the store, come back thirty minutes later and there will be no change in the score. The fact that this crap is so popular worldwide is a blemish on the human race.

5 Nascar

Why isn't this number 1? What makes this a sport? Just cars making left turns, cars crashing, speedy repairs, and engines roaring the whole length of the race?

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.

6 Muggle Quidditch

Only absolute dorks play this fantasy game.

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

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

The worst

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

I used to enjoy this sport, but not anymore. Every game is the same. If you have seen one game you have seen them all.

Worst sport I've ever watched

In the 2000's it's a new age... Of when I state this in 2018, Highschool kids, College students have no fear of God, thou shall not kill as a ultimate sin as if committed will burn in hell. No fear murder with these kids today.

A announcer once said "Do not facemask, it could break a neck or quite possibly decapitate a head" - williamb

8 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.

It is boring to watch - BreakFastBeast2005

This game doo doo

I absolutely despise golf tees. Those little nail like things you put into the ground. How horrid. My dad keeps at least 30 of them scattered about in random places of the house. I even found one on the floor outside. A very pathetic and worn out fellow. If you relate with me comment

It is just hitting a small white ball into a hole. What is so good about it

11 Australian Rules Football

It's trash. Trust me, I'm Aussie. I grew up around this, and I absolutely hate it. It is the most boring thing ever. It is the thing I hate most about Australia, and I want it gone. It is also incredibly male dominated, and although they have recently introduced women's AFL, it gets very little attention. It last for a few weeks, while the men's lasts half the year, and women get paid barely anything. And not to mention that all the talk shows about the men's AFL are sexist, and constantly treat women as inferior. And of course, there are the fans. I hate listening to my family yell at the T.V., constantly talking about how trash their team is, and how the umpires are liars, and how no one puts in any effort. A few nights ago, I was watching the World Cup. I was watching Japan and Colombia play, and I was at the T.V., alone, cheering for Colombia. However, I wasn't screaming, I was always having courage that they could win. I wasn't talking about how garbage Colombia is, unlike most ...more - Lanturnizer6

AFL is one of the best sports Australia has to offer. This website is garbage as the sports listed here are some of the most popular sports in the world. The others aren't even sports like cheerleading and muggle quidditch. This website is a joke!

AFL is actually a great sport that requires a lot of stamina and teamwork, it also does use strategy as you get to the more advanced levels. It is a great sport for getting fit, having fun and working as a team

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.

12 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.

As I live in Canada I am offended

The best sport of all time

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.

13 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.

Basketball is the best sport. It takes a level of competitiveness and multi-tasking that no other sport can achieve. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world, so why don't we compare them. In soccer, you play with 10 other teammates and have to constantly "dribble" the ball up and down the field to get the ball in the goal which is being guarded by a goalie. In basketball, you constantly go up and down the court busting your ass to get back and run whatever play you need to run to get a man open just to have an opportunity to score. Oh, and you know that goalie in soccer that prevents you from scoring? Well, there's five in basketball that follow you and make sure you can't do what you need to do, and there's one for each player who's currently on the court. I know there's defenders in soccer to, but from my experience playing both sports, there's a huge difference in how competitive the defense is. But I say the biggest thing that makes people love basketball is the sense of ...more - hiphopgod

Nope. While you people enjoy playing it, others are falling asleep watching it. Some of them are trying to, but they can't because the buzzer rings every time someone scores, which happens so frequently that the whole game is scoring. That is boring. Also the court is so small, and it takes five seconds to get to the other end of the court. At least in other sports, when you score, it's actually interesting because in other sports, scoring is not the common part of game. And dribbling and shooting on someone who is guarding a soccer goal is way harder than throwing it over some dude with their hands wildly in the air.

If the court was bigger and the baskets 50% higher then maybe this would be a sport. But when you have a bunch of 8 foot tall monsters ramming through people with no penalty just to put a ball into a basket barely higher than they are it just turns into a big show off. Not a sport.

Best sport how is it even on here?

14 American Football

it is bad

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.

This looks so scary. But really how is it a sport, all you do is try to hang on to the bull. Then after eight seconds you get thrown off and the bull stomps on all of your internal organs and kills U. Seriously who would do that?!

I pick bull riding because the bulls are abused

21 Field Hockey

it's trash

This sport is for GIRLS. Hockey is for posh women only. Should be illegal for men to play.

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

22 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.

Everyone gets mad at you if you make your team loose. Very dividing sport.

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 one of the best sports in the world! also one of the oldest
