Things that arenít really a Sport, for all you confused Sport fans

Golf - Iím sorry but itís true. Deep down you know it as well.

Snooker/Pool - I play this, but donít call it a Sport. Some people actually do.

Darts - Címon, itís a given one. Itís for fat people, or alcoholics. The real pros are fat alcoholics.

Cricket - Donít try and fool us. We know the truth about this.


Anyone have any other for the list?

Just because you play it often doesn't make it a sport. I shower everyday. Maybe I should call that a Sport. Golf is an activity.

No..thats right it doesnt make it a sport just cause I do it often... what makes it a sport is its competativeness.. its intricacy..its difficulty..

Also the fact that the winners earn millions in prize money...

that simple last fact alone makes it a sport...cause sport means competative competition..

so no..golf is not an activity.. it is a sport... weither you agree with it or not...it is a registared and widley recognised sport... its not based on wiether people think its interesting or not.... bowling is a sport... snooker is a sport... there are countless sports out there that do not require you to get beaten to a bloody pulp..

but you know what unsub... knowing you through these boards i know for a fact you wont change your mind or waver in your opinion cause thats just you... and you obviously like being the way that you are or you would try to change... even although your always banging on about how depressing life is....

either way to be honest...I and the rest of the golfing world could not give a monkeys what you think of our fantastic sport

There are plenty of competative things that aren't a Sport. Like, who can who can eat the most glass. And that takes more skill.

It became a so called "Sport" because so many geriatrics demanded it get reconition.

In our hearts we know Golf is nothing more than an excuse for geriatrics to wear halloween costumes in broad daylight.

and if its only for older people how come i started playing at 11...or that there was 4 under 30 year olds in the ryder cup

do you ever actually really think about the stuff that comes out your mouth? do you never feel embarressed about being such a loser? or do you get some sort of sick little kick out of deliberatly insulting peoples opinions?
