How many guys here don't watch sports? Check out some comments from females on the subject
"I always thought guys that aren't in to sports just aren't as manly....."
"I love watching sports and playing them as well! I have met guys that play and watch 0 sports and I tend to wonder wtf is wrong with them? If your a guy how do you not like some UFC,BOXING,BASKETBALL,FOOTBALL,BASEBALL or any other contact sport?"
people choosing significant people to watch them with. What if you dont watch sports with anyone, not even parents
Will never be able to infiltrate sports watchers club
I've never been obsessed with sports or really followed a team, mostly because I moved a lot as a kid and never really had a home team to root for. Played rugby a bit in college and tried to get into football but it's just too much shit to keep track of.
But I do enjoy watching them when they're on, particularly rugby and UFC. I can't be assed to keep track of individual players, team stats, or really anything that analysts talk about though. Just seems like a waste of effort.
>I enjoy playing sports, but I don't care about watching them.
the guy literally says that in the video i linked
what about this one: "my parents didnt watch them growing up, so i never really got into them"
This whole thing reminds me of survival of the fittest and how kids have to learn to speak for survival purposes.
I dont even watch sports at thanksgiving and christmas
Well, we are a species with tournament based courting systems, and sports tend to reflec those systems while also gloryfing the same traits in men that make them good hunters and protectors, so of course women see guys that are into sports as more manly.
Not sport guy = gatherer = pussy
I played rugby for 4 years and now i'm into boxing but just for the excercise and entretainment.
If a wasn't a social wreck i probably wouldn't be a virgin.
I admire the dedication and shit required to become a top performing athlete. I just can't be bothered to watch and keep up to date with it. The most I'm willing to do is watch compilation or highlight videos of particularly impressive plays on youtube.
>Hunter sub species died off
>Gatherers survived and manage to make civilization thanks to surplus
Are you a nigger by any chance?
>Implying the hunter paradigm doesn't account for the protector's paradigm
>Implying the hunters just died off post-nomadic stage
>Implying the wimps inherited all the bitches
Let me guess, american?
If you ask me being a spectating whining baby is more like a gatherer than a hunter
I wonder if guys who like sports get boners seeing their favorite players in tight uniforms
I also wonder why the fuck anyone would watch anime or look at trap porn... I view sports watchers as I view MLP friends
I don't watch sports, not interested in watching or playing team sports, prefer martial arts, parkour, gymnastics, etc. Prefer doing.
Closest thing to a sport I might enjoy watching is the game show Wipeout but they're not pro acrobats or gymnasts so it's not the same.
>I wonder if guys who like sports get boners seeing their favorite players in tight uniforms
I do, but I'm gay. For straight guys I just assume the obsession with sports is a combination of a self insert hero fantasy and a method of social group cohesion if they have nothing else to fall back on.
Watching sports is for literal retards. The only reason normies do it is because it makes them feel included as part of a team/group, and they need something to cheer for.
Baseball is boring and slow. Basketball is boring. Football is slow. I never watched soccer but it looks just as stupid. The only thing worth watching is hockey every once in a while. Mostly just for the fights. But additionally with commercials... fuck all that noise.
Nothing has changed in any of these sports in like the 80-100 fucking years they have existed. You're watching pretty much the same shit that players have been doing in this sport for decades. The rules are pretty much the same. Can't even come up with any new, exciting sports to play. The same shitacular 4 staple sports, year after year after year.
Teams are based on geographical location. But the players on a team are from arbitrary places, so the Philadelphia Eagles don't represent Philadelphia in any way at all aside from having their stadium there and using the city's name. This is what makes team rivalry absolutely absurd. Ask anyone why they're a fan of a certain team, and they'll say "because I was born here!" Or, "because my dad liked them!"
90% of people watch but only 25% play
>The survey found that 3.8 million people were involved as a player in some form of organised sport. This represents almost a quarter (23.4%) of the population aged 15 years and over.
I get your point though because I only watch games or video games on youtube or twich that I've played before
Watching sports to me is just like watching a game I've never played.. I joined in on an arma 3 game to see how it compared to battlefield and I was watching some weird cult fags circle jerking each other and the sheriff mainly... also there was a wedding. WTF
The thing is of those 9% of people who dont watch sports they will most likely never consider it being weird.. well because I didn't.. maybe this accounts for the fact that the percentage gets lower as people get older
I'd rather watch MLP than sports
fucking normies and chads can fuck off with this shit
Here's a pic for you friends
Your euphoria is showing.
>Implying i don't play sports
>Implying the best sports involve balls and running
Top zozzle, guys.
lol!!! it's the epic fedora man meme!!! !XDDDDDD1 he absolutely CRUSHED that guy!!!
Watching sports is just alien to me. All that cringey sports banter about whose team is best makes me sick desu senpai.
Its a shame though because it's the one mutual interest almost every male has and i dont have much else going for me in the way of mutual interests with the normies.
>heres another friends. Especially for the friends who don't watch trap / anime / mlp and think ferorally for it...
Sports are okay. They get boring often, but a lot of guys here hating on them watch twitch or youtube gaming, even when the player is quiet and not interesting. It's just nice to guess which player will do what, or which team will win. You analyze what's happening, then predict what will happen next. I don't even like sports, but liking it gets more hate than it should.
It's simple, really.
Women want guys who watch sports so their boyfriends can invite them out to sporting events or to someone's house party to watch together and SOCIALIZE.
Women don't give an iota of a shit if a guy watches which sport, they only care that you watch it with other people (friends) or stadiums of people.
Also, if you watch a sport, but don't have any friends, then it doesn't count.
Games are more understandable, since they constantly change and there's a lot more strategy and variance to the way they're played. They also can be played by pretty much anyone, anytime.
Sports are just literal niggers running after a ball.
haha the place that has them 24/7 and almost as many viewers as the NFL
mfw sports were the first level of mapping social circle surveillance before phones and shit
I truly dislike all sports involving a ball, just plain up boring for me.
Still, I've been boxing and doing mma (mainly boxing ) for half of my life, so it's logic for me to like to watch these.
I can tell that people see it as boring if they do not get how hard it is to dodge a whole combo or imagine how hard it is to last 12 (or 15) rounds.
So just watch whatever you're familiar with, yes, Esports count if you don't have enough testosterone for something real, I played LoL for s while and genuinely got hyped at fakers plays.
Pick a team, preferably your father's team or a local team, for any sport you want to watch. Start watching games, learn the characters and storylines. Eventually you'll begin to see why people find it so entertaining. It's not usually about individual games as it is the season as a whole. It's kind of like following a show.
i live in a Football (the real one) fanatic country but i dont really care all that much about it. I like to watch the national team, but what i really enjoy is motorsports.
WRC, F1, Dakar, Lemans, GT, i try to watch it all
sports are the only thing I watch on TV, mainly just fighting but I'll probably follow NFL playoffs
Watching sports is literally the gayest and most autistic hobby if you arent playing. A bunch of grown men watching a bunch of other grown men wrestle with each other and getting so psyched about it? Nah get fucked its just boring and dumb to me unless im playing
oh I figured it out.. I was thinking about how if when sports like football and baseball were invented there were also video games like battlefield not RPG's (those are also fantasies for friends) if people would have played video games instead.
Then I realized its like explaining why everyone's on facebook... you should already know the meme
keep doing the same thing over and over again is the definition of cliche
the answer is simple to why everyone watches sports... its because everyone watches sports
What the fuck is there to understand? Some people are better than others? Rules of the game? I understand both of those things and its still dumb as fuck. Maybe unless you intend to gamble on it
Or rather, because we are entertained by sports. I enjoy american football, for example, because I like seeing my team outsmart other teams. What people don't seem to understand is that football is just as much a mental game as it is physical. The ridiculous amount of downtime in football is just as entertaining as the plays because you're left trying to predict the strategy of both teams in a particular situation.
yeahhhh im a yuro, so although i loved the Corvette Racing Team on Lemans, anything motorsport from that side of the atlantic is pretty foreign to me.
My spiritual racing capital is Jyvaskyla, where they host th WRC Finland.
the point im making is that the rate of warfare has directly correlated with the introduction of simulated warfare (video games)
I understand the drama aspect that is entertaining but why watch some friends in tight pants sweat on each other when I could watch and participate in actual battles between tanks, helicopters, infantry, rocketmen, snipers, heavy mg's.. etc..
Just tell me then faggot. Whats the secret to being one of those fat autistic super fans who go to the games and paint their fucking face for other grown men who are doing what you wish you could you reverse beta orbiting faggot fuck
They don't just snap the ball and run towards the endzone you moron. It's like chess. Both sides have 11 pieces and there's a near-infinite number of ways to use those pieces. It's about using your pieces in a more effective way than the other side. Does the defense blitz here or run cover 2? Does the quarterback notice the shift of the defensive line into the blitz, and should he audible a play action into a screen pass?
I have tried getting into spots because of the social aspect but I just dont get it. I dont even give a fuck how my national teams or individual athletes are doing. How am I supposed to pic some team for some arbitrary reason and pretend that everyone who chooses to cheer for some other team are my worst enemies? Can I start watching football for example and just try to follow the tactics or something? Can you watch sports if you dont give a fuck who wins?
>can you watch sports if you don't give a fuck who wins
Not really. Don't pick a team for an arbitrary reason, though. That's no fun. Pick your father's team or the team of the city closest to you, and then you NEVER switch. When you swear on a team for life, it makes the big wins later down the line that much more enjoyable, because you've stuck with your same team for your entire life.
how funny is it when people go from talking about professional sports to college sports... I can fake it with the NFL and MLB to some extent but college sports damn
those statistics are some pure autistic shit to be memorizing
I watch sports and I don't give a fuck who wins. It's still fun, analyzing the game and all. You end up rooting for the best or the most deserving team when you're neutral anyways. Being neutral is the best way to enjoy a sport, though after watching a team several times you start to support them unconsciously.
This, being THAT into sports takes some serious autism. The funny part is that if someone doesnt want to partake in the autism the sport autistic thinks they are better or cooler or that they arent the autistic ones in the slightest.
Never had any interest in sports. There's really nothing entertaining about watching a bunch of guys throw a ball back and forth while running around a field. It's all overrated.
I guess racing also counts as a sport. I have no interest in watching races, but racing video games can be fun on occasion. I've just never been so immersed in a racing game that I've actually felt compelled to complete all the career objectives or unlock all car models. Gets boring too quickly.
These normie freaks aren't pretending though, they actually attach their own self-worth to these teams of millionaire foreign chads covered in adverts and the name of some local city that are famous for kicking or holding a ball and delude themselves into thinking that they're actually watching geniuses playing some advanced game of strategy and intimidation.
It's pretty pathetic really, and you should be glad that you're immune to it.
You can do with this or you can do with THAT
Oh ya, dont be confused, for as many fairweather "watch the game with your bros" sports fans, there's at least 2 rainman-level, autistic stat nerds.
I played sports all my life, a few at very high levels, have had professional athletes in my immediate and extended family, and watch sports regularly, but can't fucking stand the media, networks, stats analysis, etc, etc. Its such fucking bullshit and ruins the game.
Like when you have people saying "oh he's converted only 39% on 3rd downs down from 41% last year", or something as meaningless as that, its obvious they're just trying to create a story. Stats only matter if they're glaringly large differences, otherwise the sample is always way too small to factor out reasonable variance unless you're looking at macro scale stats for a whole league or something. I generally watch sports on mute with music playing so I dont have to listen to the commentators, then do other stuff during the intermission so I dont have to listen to the journalists' bullshit interviews.
i watch maybe 10 minutes of sports in a year. i just don't find it that engaging to actively follow a team or a person. i find people that obsess over sports and memorize entire rosters, stats, play fantasy football/baseball/etc. to be weird as fuck, too.
Ive seen the matrix and its the tribillions GBs of visual and audio sports data stored in human brains
Look at the people who go to starcraft tournaments... what is the world coming to?
Don't follow much of soccer besides the occasional Bayern Munich game, but here's a very recent bit between the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers.
Panthers and Falcons are in the same division, the NFC South, meaning they're basically rivals and play each other twice a year, every year.
Falcons started out pretty great early in the season going 5 - 0, as did the Panthers. However, then the Falcons started to shit the bed, while the Panthers kept winning. Eventually the 12 - 0 Panthers played the 6 - 6 Falcons. Falcons got BTFO 38-0. Panthers were the last undefeated team in the NFL, and were started to be predicted to go undefeated the entire regular season, as well as win the Super Bowl.
Panthers win their next game after that, and then started getting ready for their second game against the Falcons, fully expecting another easy, relaxing blowout. By this point, the Falcons were nearly eliminated from the playoffs and had nothing to lose.
Panthers were 14-0. Falcons were 7-7. Panthers players were talking all kinds of shit in press conferences, etc. One of the Panthers' cornerbacks, Josh Norman, whose main job is to cover wide receivers, was talking about how he's the best cornerback in the NFL and could beat any of the Falcons receivers. A Panthers linebacker, Luke Kuechly, made similar comments.
Falcons fans were practically giving away their tickets because they expected another blowout themselves. My brother and I managed to pick some up for $25.
The game starts, and this happens.
Falcons win 20-13, and become the only team to defeat the Panthers this season, as well as the only team in NFL history with an even or losing record to beat a 14-0 team. Not only did we stop the Panthers from making history, we made our own and shut the Panthers up. The Panthers went on to make the playoffs, and the Falcons didn't, but we took Carolina's undefeated season with us. I'll remember that catch forever.
MFW why not learn some actual tactics and strategies
Think about how the government seduces their population (directly and indirectly via culture influences)
Now THAT is some dramatic shit. Or watch our goverment go around the world like the dallas cowboys in the 90's and topple other governments (directly or indirectly) like some chad highschool star champ
here's a quote from the 48 laws of superiority as pic
So two teams play each other, every so often, and there was a bit of celebrity drama with one of the players?
That's pretty standard in english football. But that's not story.
I felt my brain cells dying while watching that video
football is the most retarded shit americans ever conceived
nice "story" anon, I'm sure your brahs over at /sp/ would appreciate it
were gonna build a wall.. were gonna ban the sports watching normies from r9k
sports is something you do, not something you watch. I hate sports because I hate people, I'm not a people person, sports is a team effort, if I liked people I'd love sports. Case in point I love getting into fistfights, I hate people, no team effort there
>How many guys here don't watch sports?
I watch Judo and BJJ (both of which I practice), occasionally MMA. I hate watching ball sports though, whether football or cricket or whatever - it's just boring and pointless.
of course i was upset, WE JUST GOT BACK BELLA, and she's fucking fine my bitch was all like "you ain't in the movie"
i tried explaining about how i've always supported team edward even when people started saying he was just a creepy stalker but i stuck with him, but she just didn't get it
Can someone make slow motion video of this butt. Thank you.
Yes, I have hemorrhoids, but your post certainly didn't anger me.
Not being able to "get" sports screams literal autism. Not being able to appreciate the feats of the human body or the skill players can attain is just misanthropic.
>He'll be fucking that vagina, m8. Doesn't need to see it.
Definition of a cuck... wow I am feeling better all the time about not watching sports
>Not being able to "get" sports screams literal autism
Explain why people watch the tour de france. Without tight spandex butts.. Why do people watch marathons... wheres the tactics in that?
I'd rather be autistic than be a normie that watches sports desu senpai
no, you're the fucking retard, >>25621750 is obviously supporting the person he replied too
learn reading comprehension
Rugby is popular around here but I always felt like sports was for over compensating, I was quite well built before I got fat so a lot of people tried to get me to play sports. I've gotten my weight down and hoping I don't have to go through that again.
>tfw Japanese girls see masculine guys as homosexual
I guess I'll just stick with 2D.
sports fan thinks he's not low key gay
If by rollin in shit you mean swimmin in the wymns
go back to your circle jerk
because men that sjw's hate on are actually successful and we hating sports fans which are not successful and rather gay and retarded
no offense, we just don't want you here bringing performance enhancing drugs and cuck posting
Not only that. Sports are literally a gay metaphor.
>goal is to psychologically sodomize the opponent
>have to PENETRATE into their endzone, goal box, bases, etc
>homosexual behavior is encouraged to raise the team's cohesion
>"xD it's totally ok to grab each other's dicks and asses not gay cuz we sportsmen xDDD"
>encourages gaytarded sports-watching culture
>"hey you guys wanna come inside my mancave and watch the game?"
But normies are successful, at least in assimilating into the normie culture and utilizing the social currency that comes with it.
Performance enhancing drugs would do all males good. Society wants to feminize and domesticate males for social control.
>just as pathetic as robots
Except sports fans aren't lonely.
So what if sports are retarded? Existence is retarded. Might as well have some company.
Ill tell you what it is... sports watchers frame us as weird or autistic for not watching any sport. When the reality is that watching sports is the most homosexual and autistic thing in existence
My anger is the about the hypocrisy. I'm callin you out for the same shit you generalize about me
Same with misunderstood sjw's
>Daddy ancestors are conquistadors
>I'm big and burly in 9th grade
>6foot 160 pounds
>football coach walks up and says I should play
>Fuck off normie
i watch football and ice hockey.
Watching sports isn't autistic, but some fanatics can get really autistic with it.
I'm not painting letters on my chest and standing next to my dudebros so we can spell our team name.
>THAT kind of company
A good deal of robots watch sports, as evidenced by this thread, so you shouldn't dismiss anyone's intelligence or values just because they like sports.
>watching athletic men fuck each other in the ass
lol, sports r gay
You autists are hilarious. Not only do you not watch sports, which is fine I guess. But for some reason 3/4ths of you are doing all kinds of mental gymnastics to make yourself proud about it. No one gives a fuck that you'd rather jack off to cartoons than watch a football game. But don't act like it makes you special. Not watching sports is another autistic tendency that all neckbeards have in common.
Autist here. FIFA is a really well done game, if you wanna get into soccer that's a good start. If you start playing FIFA you'll understand pretty fast how the game works and you'll be able to analyze the real matches better than most people who just watch it, besides you'll get to know most of the players and their attributes in no time and you can play vidya with normies now, which is always good since they're naturally worse at video games and they'll respect you if you beat them at something they like.
Regular threads on /r9k/:
>why aren't you a trap yet
>look at my smooth boipussy
>dumping my sissypenis collection
>tfw everyone even the 60 year old asian manager lady in my office are obsessed with sports.
I just sit there a zone out when theyre droning on about who did what with which ball to whom.
I feel like in the only black male in America that doesn't understand the obsession America has with Basketball. It is the most boring sport besides Baseball. The ball either goes in the hoop or it doesn't, what's so exciting about those odds? They blow the fucking whistle every 3 seconds. It almost makes me mad when people take it so seriously.
Youre right. This is significant. It proves why people watch sports yet again. The homoerotica. Its like men watching lesbian porn
My theory is that people who don't like sports (myself included) are just born outside of the normie way of thinking. I doubt very few well adjusted sports fans are fucking anime pillows and not being a good goyim with student loan debts. Its the ultimate normie pasttime.
Yes looking at trap pics is not gay... neither is sports
