In my opinion, americans enjoy sissy sports that are afraid of contact:
Basketball - I liked playing basket at physical education back in highschool, but it's a bit boring to watch. It's not a very dynamic sport, it's tactically limited and not very fast with serious symptoms of stopclock-o-litis. No contact whatsoever.
American football - The players are afraid of getting sued so they wear big equipment that will save their pocket money, and are so out-of-shape that need to stop the clock everytime something happens(joke). Serious now, Rugby is simply faster and has alot of real contact, how can american football beat that?
Baseball - No contact whatsoever and definitely slow paced. But to be honest it's the main american sport that I respect the most.
Ice Hockey - I like this one, but it's not as fast as rink hockey and there's no real contact.
lol. you are so right.
baseball is 20 minutes of action packed into 5 hours of play.
basketball is a good sport but when a player gets touched on his wrist they stop the game for 2 minutes to shoot free throws.
football is very boaring. 20 seconds of play then a 40 second break. and during the 20 seconds of play they barley move up field.
hockey. i hate hockey. (pretty weird for a canadian) but hockey is really a sissy sport cuz they wear mad padding and theres so many players on a small rink which makes it very hard to score.
soccer- soccer for me is amazing to watch. sometimes it gets boaring if your watching to shit teams i.e sheffield united and QPR, but the atmosphere of the crowd the close calls,the amazing saves, and the penalty shootouts make the game great. also when a player scores, its a big relief. wish i could go see a man utd game.
cricket is just an amazing game. i really dont know what to say about this game but its good speically watching it.
