Cheerleading: Is it a Sport?

Waukee_Student

Cheerleading: Is it a Sport? Imagine going to a football game. The football players are on the field or watching from the sidelines. But who else is there standing on the sidelines? Yes, there are the coaches, the trainers, the team managers and a couple other people. But there are also cheerleaders. Many people in the world do not consider cheerleading a sport, but by definition, cheerleading should be considered a sport. There are also many risks involved in cheerleading and it requires gre...

Is Lacrosse better than Baseball?

CapLAX22
Blade-of-Truth

I want to see everyone's opinions. I personally love Lacrosse. It's much more exciting and active compared to sitting in a diamond wondering if someone is going to hit the ball or not. There's not much strategy or planning in baseball. Hit the ball or miss, that's it....

Soccer is more physical/popular than Football

AustinS_99
Commondebator

Everyone always says that Football is way more physical than Soccer, but that is not true in many ways. First I want you to think about it like this. Football players wear a lot of padding all over there body and yes take some hard hits, but soccer gets the same amount if not strong amounts of hits to the body and they only have shin guards. Football player get hit and will be down for a little while before getting up but I know people ( me included) who played soccer with broken bones and would...

Anderson Silva did not throw his fight with Chris Weidman

THElittleRISK
masterdebater1987

I am hoping to argue with another MMA afficionado over Anderson Silva's stunning loss to Chris Weidman via KO. I have recently seen several commentors speculating that Silva threw the fight to get a bigger rematch. I will be arguing that this is not the case. Obviously there is no concrete evidence, so we will be left to hypothetical examinations of pre and post fight behavior. Burden of proof is on Con to present arguments for Silva intentionally losing the fight. Voters should vote based...

Because of wolves Wisconsin deer population has decreased. Because Wisconsin doesn't have a true wolf season they have no predators causing their numbers to keep increasing. Not only is the deer population in danger, the wolves also kill off livestock and peoples pets, too. Wolves are nuisance and their populations need to be controlled....

Finishing in the top 4 of the EPL is like a trophy

durrrr013
AdeelQayum

I'm an Arsenal fan. Wenger has said many times that qualifying for the UCL is "like a trophy". I'm inclined to agree. I would actually give up an FA Cup (the only actual trophy won since I began supporting the club in 2006) for a spot in the UCL. My reasons are the finances involved and the prestige from European competition....
