What's the best sports game for people who don't care for sports and why is it Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu: Subette Koronde Dairantou
It's Punch-Out!! with precisely two exclamation points.
Get it right or pay the price!!
Generally those that involve power level and special attacks, as well as changing or straight out removing the rules. Captain Tsubasa series (or Tecmo Soccer) is a good example.
Ice Hockey NES is great fun with two players. Its a pretty simple but the controls are real fluid and you can customize your team with three different weight classes.
How does that one hold up against Blades of Steel?
I've always loved Blades of Steel for its casual/"stick hockey" sort of feel. The shootout and fighting mechanics make for hilarious multiplayer as well.
I will be honest I never played Blades of Steel, I probably should though since its a cheap quality title. From watching a a quick video of BoS I would say Ice Hockey has a faster pace (when set to max speed) and is more "slippery" in a controlled way.

I'm assuming this is for the Famicom, I'll have to check this out.
I love Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu: PC Bangai Hen, other than that NBA JAM TE for SNES is always my go to sports game.
Yes, it was meant to be released in the US as Crash n' the Boys: Ice Hockey challenge but was canceled.
There's patches available, but I played it years ago but it's not really necessary... and I can't read any moon.
