Top five favourite Sports



  • Pretty simple. Kinda keen to see which sports come in second after Rugby.

    Apologies for a few omissions ( Baseball, Snooker and a few others ), the poll wouldn't allow me any more options.



  • Playing or spectating?

    The latter.....we're all old has beens or never was's......

    I went Rugby, Cricket, Basketball, Boxing and loigue.

    Honourable mentions to Darts and Womens Volleyball



  • @MN5 i played 80 minutes of First Grade in the front row a couple of times this year. So I'm not done just yet.

    But we will go with spectator

    I did some sparring and played some darts. I was better at punching things than hitting bullseyes.



  • I could only vote for Rugby and Cricket. The rest I'm just not into

    *Unless there are hot chicks, so maybe beach volleyball occasionally

    I hear that strangely enough but I'll definitely add a big title fight, the Wellington Saints and a decent league game if I'm browsing the TV to the list.

    Some of those sports above genuinely bore me shitless.



  • Rugby, cricket and League are the only sports I watch regularly.

    Hockey and America’s cup next



  • Rugby; UFC/MMA; American Football; Athletics; Skiing


  • Banned

    I have a stupid number of sports channels but only really watch rugby and even then I've missed most Super games this year. I've been conscious of the cricket world cup but have barely watched a minute. Contrast that with the last time it was in the UK (99?) when I stayed up for all the big games. Maybe it's because my boys aren't interested in watching sports and it's not as fun watching alone?

    The gf is very sporty so hopefully we'll watch more sport if and when she moves in. Still get a horn for the Olympics and the time difference will be sweet in 2020.



  • Rugby, cricket, AFL, american football, league and basketball are watched and followed in equal measures I reckon



  • Given what I watch on TV it would be Rugby, Cricket, Cycling (both lycra lads and downhill MTB), motor racing (usually Supercars rather than F1 slotcars)

    The only sport my boys will attend is Basketball, no interest in Rugby or Cricket. Courtside seats and free food definitely helps but they were genuinely chuffed to meet all the players after one game recently.

    I tried getting them to watch 20/20 over summer. No interest whatsoever, both grabbed the nearest ipad/chromebook and were off in another land. Fuck knows what they would have done if it was a test match.



  • I would of clicked motor sport, but I can't see it if it's there. So rugby, America's cup of we're in it, was all I clicked.



  • Wait, shit, I probably spend more time watching, thinking about, and talking about horse racing than anything.



  • Unsurprisingly, the poll misses Rodeo and also cutting, a sport that I'm sure no-one here has heard of, but one in which we have a very successful kiwi called Clint Allen - I think he recently went over 5 million dollars as a rider after winning a couple of weeks ago in Vegas:



    1. Basketball
    2. Rugby
    3. Athletics
    4. League
    5. Cricket

    Next cabs: Volleyball, Darts (“sport”??), European Handball

  • Rugby Playing(long ago)/watching
    Skiing Can't watch it but love actually skiing
    Athletics Used to run a bit/watching
    Cricket Watching/Occasionally used as a specialist No11 batsman
    Golf Difficult to watch/even harder to play



  • Rugby - only sport I watch with any regularity but not every week, though will watch replays
    Cricket - If NZ is playing or any other "big game" e.g. Aus v Eng
    Soccer/Football - has replaced league as the occasional sport I watch (I don't live in QLD anymore). Have grown to appreciate it but still think it's dull more often than not
    Tennis - Pretty much any big game but only if the timing is right
    Boxing/MMA - big fights only

    Was a mediocre hooker and even worse cricketer back in the day. Enjoy skiing and golf though do them very rarely. Have done a bit of boxing for fitness which I enjoyed.
