Sports are important for many reasons.

Sports allows people to play and therefore just because people are playing some sport they are - not bored - not killing others - getting great exercise - enjoying themselves - entertaining others.

Playing some sort of sport lifts people out of depression and works out aggression.

When you play sport, you learn how to play fair (except for Pakistan, obviously, and a few other exceptions).

If people want to see exploitation in sports - it is not sports, it is people.

The point of sports in sex. This has already been covered.

Move along, people. Nothing to see here.

I think they get a little way too happy at these sporting events.






Tell me what you think. Neyoko.

Oooh. Catty. I just think this is a pointless thread. Guilty? Yes!

Most of your threads are pointless though, if you ask me. Sorry. Just an opinion...

Sports serve as a distraction from the real issues that we should be facing.

Witness the sheep that go ape whenever their team wins.

Half agree with you. I think televised sports, do all of that. But playing sports it self doesn't. ESPN did to sports what MTV did to music.

Sports are lame. They are not important. Pleiadians have something to do with them.

Is gambling considered a sport now?

If so I love sports.

If not then sports are just another opiate for the masses to keep people from realizing the truth.

The true conspiracy within sports is within the depths of GOLF.

I watch as people sit in their chairs and watch this mind-numbingly boring "sport" in which some guy wearing pleated pants (PLEATED!) whacks a tiny ball with a stick with hopes that it will miraculously make it within feet of the hole which is gazillion miles away....so far away that you can't even see it! You can't even clap at golf...there's not cheering...no body paint....what kind of sport is that?!

Hi, Proph,

Thanks for your cynical take on this.

But what about kids playing sport? It develops them physically and mentally. And a lot of kids who have a horrible home life can find an outlet in their sport.

Supposedly golf is a sport you can utterly rot at and still enjoy it. It's sort of like sex.

That's probably why mainly old white dudes play it. I enjoy goony golf though because I get to see those giant dinosaurs and stuff.

I wonder if that translates that I am into some freaky deaky kinky goony sex?

Well that is not entirely true, the rules surrounding spectators aren't quite so harsh at golf tournaments.

But man, after watching "The Legend of Bagger Vance", I'll never look at golf the same way! I've never seen such an inspiring movie based around such a seemingly dull sport. They worked some magic in that film, I don't know how they made the sport so interesting.

Well, I've never been to a golf...uhh...match? game? tournament? Whatever. Never been to one. But I'm sure when the uh....hitter? batter? swinger? hits the ball into the uh....goal? hoop? hole? ....that the people don't uh....dance around screaming? chug beer? cheer wildly?

Never seen Bagger Vance neither....maybe I should, perhaps it would make me have an ounce of appreciation for golf....?

Videogames are entertainment too.

Videogames are entertainment, and they develop the brain.

Of course, if they are violent, they also develop violence, which we already have enough of.

But sport develops the brain, the body, the mind and the attitiude - onward and upward!

Oh, and I suppose football tackling isn't violent at all, huh?

I don't really think kids are very important.
