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!
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.
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.
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"
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
All kinds of sports have their risks and their own ways to be played but sports are held to unite people, as a way of healthy lifestyle, and for the spirit of the sport itself. Any kind of violence in sports is given penalty and punishment. Therefore, sports do not support violence.
In the modern day pop culture is so involved around drugs, and violence that sports encourage nearly nothing in comparison. Besides going to play a sport is a great way to help a person vent out their angers, but it doesn't encourage violence. It just involves some violence.
