2014 Bash Each Other's Team Sports Thread

Recommended Posts

boogielicious    1,159

I thought I would create a space where we can all vent, criticize, bash, belittle and debate each other's favorite team sports.  This will lighten the load on other threads that get bogged down with pointless bickering and jabs about whose sports are better.

Rules:  As usual, no personal attacks.  This thread can and will be locked if it gets out of hand.  Keep it light and keep it fun.

So let's have at it!

NFL Football

CFL Football

Football/Futball/Soccer

Rugby - League and Union and even Sevens!

Baseball

Basketball

Cricket

Hockey

Field Hockey

Billiards

Curling

Darts

Bowling

Hurling

Scottish Highland Games

Softball

That weird sort of basketball game that girls play in Australia

Dodgeball

Volleyball

and many more!!

No.  Not intra-sport bashing @Ernest Jones .  Inter-sport bashing; as in all the whining that Euros do about the NFL or Americans do about soccer.

Curling is dumb BTW.

Oh, right, gotcha.

Curling is NOT dumb!

Cricket sucks and so does baseball. Blah, boring, boring, boring.

I always thought curling was pretty interesting. Cricket is a game I've never been able to understand, despite having it explained to me a bunch of times and actually playing, once. My fraternity used to play these games called "Beer Olympics," and hurling was one of the events, but I don't think that's what you're talking about :-P

As a Flyers fan I agree wholeheartedly, although I sure as shit ain't a Habs fan, either! The Penguins and Rangers are very close to the top of my list, but I dislike the Bruins the most.

I dislike UFC.  All they seem to do is relentlessly beat the shit out of each other with, apparently, little in the way of rules.  It's barbaric.

There are actually a lot of rules, you should have seen the very first mma ppv fights. People were able to kick you in the face when you were on the ground and stuff.... These days it's pretty tame.

Cricket sucks. Soccer is great. Football is great. Basketball is great. Sports are great. @Ernest Jones is just upset the Expos were stolen. But yeah it's kinda boring :-P Hockey sucks. Maybe I'm just upset that as a very casual fan of the sharks, they seem to **** up every year. Are they the Greg Norman of hockey?

@david_wedzik 's definition of a sport: if the average man can do it better than the average woman, it's a sport, not a game.

Curling? Curling might be a game...I take it Australian Dick Wrestling & Sumo Rodeo are considered sports.

    • I started my son playing golf when he was 4 yrs old. Now he's 14 and 5'10. He's play'd in a youth program, local youth tournaments, and summer camps up till 2 years ago. He had been playing club travel basketball for the past 2 years. He wanted to start playing again, but he'd grown out of his junior clubs. So I bought him a used set of Callaway X-18 iron and some Callaway woods. We started going to the range a couple of weeks ago. He's had one lesson with his long time youth golf coach. He's hitting a nice draw, but just raw potential. We played a twilight round yesterday, and he surprised me. He realized all the sudden how much power he has with a driver in his hands. He started slicing his drives but keeping them in play. He even out drove me on a few holes. He was hitting greens, but his putting was all over the place. We came to a 170 yd par 3 that's over a deep ravine. He walks up to the tee, drops his ball and hits and 8 iron. He hit it pin high 10' right of the pin. I hit 7 iron short of the green, and bogied the hole. He par it:)  It's so much funner for both of us playing golf together vs. watching him play basketball and me yelling at him. 
    • No one has ever said golf was fair. Golf is the most frustrating sport I have ever played. But isn't that what makes us come back? 
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years seriously
      My current handicap index or average score is: 37
      My typical ball flight is: right to left or a heavy hook
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Anything with a hybrid I am trying to copy Moe Norman's swing within reason.  I have a lot of physical limitations in the area of coordination, balance and flexibility.  My hands shake in a fairly small way, but still 24-7.  The reason I have chosen the Moe swing is because based on everything I have read, watched and studied the swing appears to have less moving parts and is based around what would appear to be good biomechanics.  I have with an Instructor from the Graves Golf Academy who I have worked with and have several of their DVD's and training aids.  I now just need to put the pieces together.     I also use a Biomech Acculock Putter  in order to control my hand shakes on the green.  I am hoping to use both these tools to make my game both more repeatable and more consistent.   My stats are available here: https://www.gamegolf.com/player/wpgstriker I will try and post a video tomorrow and other videos as I go through the learning process for this swing.  I understand that many people don't care for Moe's swing and that's fine, but that is the one I am going for. For at least the next 12 months I am committing to it.  If you want to join me on this journey please be welcome.  If you have questions about the swing or Moe please throw them at me.  I would love to discuss.     Videos:   
    • The fickle winds of fate. F**k you leaf.  
    • I'm 6'7. Walking into a golf shop, looking at all those nice new irons and knowing that you'll never be able to play most of them really sucks. You can only look at the best forged irons. So Mitzuno blades (which I have), or a muscle back modified blade. That's it! 6 degrees upright puts tall guys in no mans land. Super upright swing too. Hitting a draw is pretty hard. High fade is my shot. I've got over 35 years of dealing with it. I would say long heavy arms don't help anything. Let's not even get into size 15 shoe designs on the clearance rack:)  I can hit long balls, but it's always been awkward to hit my short irons a solid distance. I tend to play a 3/4 swing for accuracy. Hit my head on the roof of the golf carts all the time.
