To watch? Basketball. Very repetitive, little excitement.

Basketball has so much scoring that it isn't exciting.
Soccer has too many long stretches of nothing interesting happening.
Baseball is monotonous.

I love football, but the commercials can be tedious at times.

That's why hockey is the best. It's always got something going on. The perfect amount of scoring, big hits, fast paced, always exciting. It's also by far the best sport to watch live.

That said I love to play all of these sports, despite being terrible at them.

Most sports are boring if you don't watch or play enough to know what to look for, I find basketball boring because I don't know the rules, never played and don't know what to look for. Some find Baseball or Golf boring because they are looking for action and these sports are more like Dramas than action, some find tennis boring because they don't see the variations on the shots or see the players trying to set up the point, some find racing boring because you don't get a sense of the speed or power or how close these cars run to each other from TV, it definitely is a sport that needs to be experienced live.

Baseball and curling for obvious reasons.
Dance/syncro swimming/etc are boring because I really don't see a point to it, even though it looks incredibly difficult.
Racing isn't exciting unless theres a collision.

I enjoy all the other ones though, including golf because I LOVE golf and everything involved.

To me, hockey and baseball are the most exciting sports to watch. Hockey, because it's just hockey...and baseball, because it's such an intricate sport and takes such strategy that a lot of people aren't able to comprehend, therefore wont get into it. Watching a strike-out in baseball is as exciting as watching a fight in hockey. To me, anyways...


Golf. Golf is the most boring sport.

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

I really don't care for basketball. A few others on the list I don't like much either, but basketball stands out the most

basketball is just so manufactured It's designed to be a close game. Intentional fouls, the amount of time outs, getting half court when you call a time out.

NASCAR has done the same thing, notice how there is always a phantom "debris" caution when someone gets too far out front, and always in the last 20 laps or so to close up the field?

Racing, golf, curling, cycling...


I don't mind baseball and I'm fine with soccer. Basketball, I'll only watch if it's like good teams (Lakers vs Heat for example)

To me Lacrosse is pretty boring.

Such a shame baseball has so many votes, it really is a great game once you get into it. It also has one of the greatest legacies of any sport. The problem with it I believe is that it hasn't really "evolved" like many of the other sports have over the decades.

Baseball is fun to watch live, but on TV it's a real bore for me. Most of the sports listed are boring to me except football and basketball. Haven't watched enough boxing, wrestling and rugby to even have an opinion on them.

Im going to go out on a limb and say you haven't played much tennis or golf. To be entertained and appreciate what pro golfers and tennis players do, most people really have to understand how difficult it is to do what they do. Hopefully that made sense and helps. ;)
