    Ban your least favorite sport.

    Ok, it seems I am on a ban theme but lets try this one.

    If you were the supreme potentate of the entire universe, what sport would you ban and why would you ban it.

    It doesn't have to be politically correct, just your opinion. I think Jsharr would choose Baseball. I think I would go with Ice Hockey, or maybe the real sport of Pro wrestling.

    Anything where a subjective panel of judges decides the winner, rather than higher/faster/stronger/most objective points scored.

    Take your pick:

    synchronized swimming.
    gymnastics.
    figure skating
    ski jumping
    diving
    snowboard half-pipe
    skateboard half-pipe

    Athletic? Yes. Sport? No.

    Naaaahhh, don't ban it. Just make the participants do their routines with 50 pound weights strapped to each appendage. Boy, would that make the TV ratings soar. Probably also cut down on the number of repeat champions.

    Nascar is a joke. Originally it was a competition among manufacturers in that only cars avilable to the public are raced. Now every car is virtually the same and the ford vs chevy vs dodge vs toyota is a joke.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Going in a circle as fast as possible in a big, ugly, loud, and smelly american automobile is not a sport in my opinion. But yeah...ban it anyway.

    What he said! And also any sport where violence is an intentional part of the activity (for example boxing).

    That about covers it.
