  • Sports cause violence

    Why are they? All sports are active but all the moving sometimes leads to violence. If you know some sports like football or soccer have a sort of tackling that is more than violent but can seriously mess someone up. I watched this movie on bones and how they work. It gave an example a football player being tackle and having his arm torn from his shoulder joint. As you can see that would cause serious pain and a serious medical bill.

  • The games we are taught to play as children do form and mold us as adults and as a culture.

    Institutionalized violence, aka American football is a perfect example of the connection between condoned; actually, revered, idolized and hugely rewarded male violence on the playing field and violence against women and in the culture generally. If we are a so called Christian nation, then we must ask ourselves, " would Jesus play football?"

  • yes

    Sports encourage competition and social interaction. Sports do not encourage violence. While the actions may be considered violent, to a degree, depending on the sport in question, they do not directly encourage the individuals to be violent. They do encourage the participants to out-play and do better than their opponents.

  • Contact sports trigger violent instincts

    We all have instincts for violence that can be triggered by witnessing violence or being the victim of violence. Have you ever wondered why people actually like watching violence on TV? It seems like humans wouldn't want to watch bad, gruesome things. It's because we have an instinct to be fascinated with watching violence so we can learn from it and protect ourselves.

    Some sports, like football and wrestling can also trigger those instincts. Scientists have found that kids who participate in those sports are much more likely to be violent off the field. People who watch those sports are also more likely to beat their spouses, get in fights etc shortly after watching a game. Our rational brains know that it's just a game but our instincts don't know the difference.

    So, in a nutshell. Golf probably doesn't trigger violence but football and wrestling do. Something to think about when you let your 9 year old son watch WWE!

  • Nah M8 They Dont

    Contact sports help health and well-being, fitness, self control, anger management, mental/physical improvement teaches discipline and helps technique. Contact supports can help any type of person at any age people that start mma fighting and sports young often become controllable people who are well respected in the community of were they live.

  • Sports don't encourage violence

    Sports usually cause players to engage in a high level of competition, especially in very competitive sports and higher league tournaments. This type of competition, and really any high level of competition in general, usually brings out the angry side of people as no one really likes losing. Most of this anger can turn into violence but it is not likely.

  • NO!

    I think that all the contact in sports gets peoples adrenaline pumping and makes the sports alot more exiting and more fun to watch but if there was none then not alot of people would watch while the players competitive drive would go down there would be less encourage so all sports have a different amount of "violence"

  • Define too much

    The violence in golf is different than that in MMA. Everything else falls somewhere in between. We can't define "too much" so let the competitors and viewers decide what they are willing and able to endure.

  • No!

    We as humans love the aggression and physical contact that some might think of as violence. Sports are a fun family and friend activity that every single generation should take part in.

  • Sport Violence

    Of course not! All sports are meant to be played physical & to the best of both team's abilities. If you took away the physical contact, you would make football impossible, basketball miserable, and most sports weak & noncompetitive.

  • Sports are wholesome recreational activities that support healthy lifestyles and teamwork.

    They do not encourage violence in anyway. In all sports, there are negative consequences for violence, coming in the form of yellow and red cards, penalties, foul shots, etc. Sports teach people how to have good sporstmanship and how to work with a team. Also, students who are actively involved in sports usually have higher grades than those who aren't, because they have to keep their grades up. Being invested in their education keeps kids off of the streets and off of violent video games. Sports do not encourage violence- they discourage it.

  • Only to the stupidest of the ignorant morons.

    Sports encourage physical activity. Playing sports is a great way to stay in shape while interacting with other people in a friendly manor. Injuries are just a part of any real sport, there is a risk with pushing your body's limits. But to call that VIOLENCE, is pure ignorance. Watching prison riots, or gun fights might encourage violence, but sure as hell not sports.

  • Not at all

    Sports are organized recreation and therefore do not encourage violence. Even though many sports are intensely physical, this itself does not by definition encourage violence. Because participants have organized, restricted physical activity, they are not directly encouraged to participate in random detrimental violence.
