V8's after NRL.

Massive MMA and UFC fan here, been watching believe it or not since the mid 90's when it was still for nutters. Trouble is it is starting to become a bit WWE with all the theatrics. Cant stand the fake wrestling, but unfortunately they have infiltrated.

Otherwise, I like the obscure stuff that occasionally comes on ESPN.

I like watching a lot of sports
V8's - Fords
EPL - Arsenal
AFL- Collingwood
NBA - Jazz
NFL - Green Bay
I follow a team in most world leagues, love horse and dog racing as well.
I still play hockey, but don't really like watching hockey.
Like riding my road bike, and driving my old car

Love watching League, league, league, cricket.
Used to play squash 3x a week. Now I’m into hot power yoga - real good workout!

I meant playing not watching tennis and golf...

The winter Olympics was mad fun this year.
Played both tennis and golf ....
was off 14 handicap at golf but lost interest a long time ago .
Golf sucks !
Golf should not be classed as a sport
Crap golfers tend to hate the game :sign: and you can't blame anyone else

Cricket ,EPL , athletics , golf
Too many nerds like yourself play golf

Surfing isn’t a sport either !
It’s just a past time !

You coming to the Mountain this year ?
You 'd have enjoyed the nerds I played with :lol:

Getting back to the bar as quickly as possible was the most important thing :D

Not finishing worst in your group and buying the keno ticket the next Important thing

Every Tuesday 7.00 am we had a pre planned tee off , you always knew someone would be there and the comp ran for the week

The other thing was we had two 9/10 keno tickets , both blokes won $10 k , one went home so pissed he didn't find out for 2 days

I miss my Tuesday golf :cry:

Mountain is on my bucket list , I'll get there one day , maybe when EB and Hobbo Jr are old enough to drive us down , get the drinks , bail us from jail and drive us back :roll

Test cricket would be my favourite sport to watch. Have just got back into running and am hoping to do a half marathon next year if the body holds up.

Fake drama. Real fights...
Real men don't need to walk around and prove how tough they are pre fight

They do their talking in the ring , if you need to talk your fight up , doesn't say much about you as a fighter , does it ??

It's just marketing...
Some like it, some don't.
Depends how its done for me.

I don't like the Connor McGregor clownery but I dia enjoy the Colby VS Brazil stuff 😂

Tigers and a few other NRL games (when theres time) are the only thing I watch. Don't watch any other televised sports or TV for that matter.
I really enjoy watching Judo randori and go to almost all of my sons comps. I am even beginning to recognise some of the throws and countermoves.
My sports of choice are fishing (but never competitively, can't stand fishing comps), and gardening.
