  • Numerous reasons ofcourse

    1) While people spend money to watch sport whether at a stadium or at home on the TV they will be spending hour after hour being lazy just to watch someone else be active
    2) The pay sports players get is phenomenal compared to actual hard working citizens who just want to survive
    3) Can teach bad habbits e.g. Nick Kyrgios, Andy Murray, Stephen Lee
    4) Only a minor percentage can achieve sport at a good level
    5) It makes people naive in terms of real life e.g. politics, economics, finances....The issues that matter

  • Sports is overratted

    - Pay – sports people are massively overpaid – the highest paid NBA coach is paid $11 million per year. That’s not to mention the extra money he would earn through royalties and advertising etc. Floyd Mayweather profession boxer earns $85 million per year.
    - It is not a career that will last
    - People take it too far – e.g. soccer in Europe, obsessive fans -> people who take it too seriously (the banana incident), Parents who put lots of pressure on their children to succeed – “Dance Moms”
    - Sore losers – children watching players like Nick Kyrios are not being shown how to behave and be modest in victory and respectful in defeat.
    - Sports reinforces the gender gap – most separate boys from girls and in doing so reinforce the idea that girls are weaker and can’t compete on the same level as boys.

  • It is very boring

    No body astually likes sport as people can get bullied and teased and even worse things and it causes pollution to us and that isnt good is it? And if you want more proof, go to a school as people get bullied of teased or worse!! Safaant wynwbb wbyhwywywy wbhywywy

  • YES, Sports Takes Away The Time Needed For Learning Valuable Skills

    The percentage of people that train from elementary school through high school and on to college and then MAKE IT to a paying career is VERY SMALL. Most students that pursue a career in sports, and then do NOT make it are likely to be LOW SKILLED employees. The college degree is just a sheep skin. At the same time they probably perpetuate the DREAM CAREER IN SPORTS by instilling the same career path in their children.

  • Many not physically equipped for sustained competition

    Many are born with conditions that at some point will limit their physical activities. Asthma can overstress the heart, and in extreme cases result in death. Sickle-cell anemia can be so painful sufferers must be hospitalized. Some just don't possess the stamina or physical strength for it. Bullying to 'toughen up' is just that, unjustifiable bullying.

    There are many more enjoyable activities in life than strutting on a playing field and expecting to be admired and worshiped.

  • Waste of Valuable Resources

    It's cool that people can get paid to do what they love, but do they(professional/college players and coaches) really need that much pay for a game? Sports promote a competitive air, which while a good thing, is often taken too far, while simultaneously drawing attention away from other worthwhile pursuits. I would argue in a way that it dehumanizes us, as resources are not used to foster growth in all ways as people, but only aggression, and even then failing to foster loyalty as teammates are bought and sold.

  • It's not the sports, it's the people

    Sports is good, but the people who watch sports are different. In Europe the favorite sport is soccer, but we've all seen it on the news "riots break out in Italy" I'm fine with sports but I'm not fine with someone throwing a tantrum because they lost a game. Also, it always seems to be a common occurance to have parents force their children to only like sports and nothing else... This isn't Sparta folks!

  • Sports ARE overrated

    Everyone talks about it, no one appreciates the soldiers, everyone gets into fights over a game, people take this sports crap too much. Its like you have to get into sports in order to be accepted. Stop rooting for athletes who get payed millions of dollars just to catch a ball and work out. If thats the case everyone would be rich amd endorsed. Stop this sports crap

  • Contribution to the benefit of Humankind is dubious at best

    While many positive arguments can be made about the value of sportsmanship, teamwork and character building, today's college and professional sports activities and events are clearly not about any of these. No sustainable contribution has been made for the betterment of mankind or the human race through profit driven sporting events. Diversion, profit and glory are the primary goals which means for the countless hours spent wasting time watching these events, rarely is anything meaningful accomplished.

  • Diversion from Reality

    I believe that sports (and particularly major college or professional sports) are overrated and over-hyped, and is generally used by the elites as a method of diverting the masses from thinking about what is really going on in the world and in their own lives. Sports are a primary method of manipulating the masses into believing that the predominant paradigm of the world is a tribal one (as in most of life is "us versus them", "win-lose", "winner take all", etc.).

  • Sport is not overrated because it is good for you

    Sport helps keep some people healthy and fit. It brings people together and creates joy and excitement. Many disagree with this statement but exercise creates hormones that make people happy. Some people think learning is more important, but exercise refreshes the body and keeps it healthy which could be a bonus FOR learning.
