People's obsession with Sports.
    #9892294 - 03/02/09 04:12 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

It's so stupid how some people are so obsessed with baseball, basketball, football, or other sports.  They act like it's some sort of breaking news, and are always jabbering about who made a 3 pointer, who got picked for a different team, etc...its all so meaningless!  It's just a game that's been played the same way over and over.  Also, professional sports players should NOT be making millions of dollars.  Scientists, Doctors, and people who actually make a difference in the world should be paid extraordinary wages, not some fake idiot who takes steroids and plays a game his whole life.

You probably suck ass at sports, or hate competition. Let those motherfuckers play their games.


But yeah, stupid fat fags that get all excited about football games and yell at the screen like they're babies and eat 900 chicken wings in an afternoon make me laugh, and secretly, want to kill. They're as bad as critics: They fail at doing something they love, so they just keep close tabs on everyone that can actually do it and discuss it like they're an authority. But to everyone else, they suck cocks.

Competition is pretty lame. Whats the point of trying to prove you're 'better' at something else? What void are you trying to fill? Who the fuck cares. I played football and realized how arrogant these jock sniffing douchebags were. Just as sickening as materialistic people. Giving a shit about a purposeless game.

Its what they're competing for that's the problem. If it wasn't about ego inflation and had some sort of worthwhile purpose it wouldn't be such a problem.

Can you also explain to me how competition is progress? Or do you mean how competition can fool people into making progress.

Speaking of headlines, today when the media talked about the 3 men lost in the Gulf of Mexico, they referred to them as 2 NFL players and another man. The 2 pro athletes are much more important than that other guy. why? b/c many are obsessed w. sports as you say.

Sports are uneventful. I honestly don't see why people get so excited. I would get excited for actually playing the game. Not watching others play the game.

People who watch, but don't play, can't play because they know they suck.

Sports are gay.

QFT.

There is absolutely no basis for saying a pro athlete should make less money than they make now.

People who can perform any task are a commodity and are paid according to their usefulness.  While teaching may be an admirable and important profession, there are literally hundreds of thousands of people out there qualified to teach.  Thus, the pay is not spectacular.  There are slightly fewer people, but still tens of thousands I'm sure, that are capable of being doctors.  Their pay is slightly higher as a result.

Now, there are ten people in the entire world who can hit small ball moving 105mph 400 feet out of a ballpark, and do it on a regular basis 40 times a year.,

*10*.

Out of 6 billion people.

Why should they be paid less than some guy giving Hollywood starlets fake tits or a grad-school drop-out teaching retards to read in Brooklyn?

Because the person teaching retards to read in brooklyn is providing a worthwhile service to the bettering of society, while the people who can hit a ball are really quite useless to society, and in fact one could argue that they are actually degrading society.  They dull peoples minds by providing a distraction from the important things, less thinking, more buying.  It's fucking ridiculous that they get paid that much.  I'm gonna start a professional jerking off league and be the best at it so I can get paid millions of dollars a year.

I never thought about the fact that sports are easy, and people like to feel intelligent, that is very true.

I agree.

Sports can be taught, like anything else. Some people tend to be a bit better than others, naturally, but so what? They shouldnt earn more money than everyone else for running in circles.

sports can take you just as high as anything else.

the endeavour of man should be to perfect himself.

both the mind and body need cultivation to achieve perfection.

therefore sports are an important part of our humanity.

Know thyself.  know both your academic and physical limits.  and push them.



obviously you are a dumbass for thinking that pushing the limit of human physical prowess is meaningless.

  These retards that obsess over it without participating.. yes they are dumb.  but not as dumb as you.

at least they see some importance in one of the most important things.

Sports can be very inspiring, for kids for example.

I do agree that some athletes are overpaid, however, anyone who has been into sports knows that being one of the greatest takes talents and so much work.

Some basketball players would run hours and hours, shoot free throw for hours and hours, do workouts four hours and hours, this everyday, train harder, harder, harder until they get the chance to go to college... many sacrifices, and don't forget it's a bet.

Check out all the guys who almost reached the top but were injured just before... check out all the guys who weren't picked. Check out all the guys left aside.
The best weren't born the best. They weren't especially taught to be the best. But they made themselves the best... and were lucky enough to be picked.

So, yeah, athletes are very inspiring to anyone who wishes to improve himself. It shows you that it's possible if you work hard, it shows you that people made it.

Ever heard of "no pain, no fame"? Sports are made of sweat and tears.

Definitely agree that pro sports guys are paid way too much money. Sure, they're athletes at the very top of their game, but what are they really accomplishing and does it really matter? Not really, unless you find their abilities personally inspiring. I don't.

Of course, I also have a bone to pick with the cast of CSI being paid a cool mil for each episode they appear in. Our culture is unhealthily obsessed with entertainment.

Again, supply and demand.

If you don't think what they do is any way special, find someone else who can do it.

What is your definition of something that "matters"?

They (pro athletes) are responsible for tens of billions of dollars worth of revenue, tens of thousands of jobs, and putting forth a product that is very important to millions of people.

That, in my book, is important.

I like sports, they're wonderful for physical health and social interaction. Excellent for kids, keeps you active as an adult. They are cool to check out on the T.V. every once in a while, but I'd prefer to watch college sports to professional sports any day.
I hate professional sports, where athletes get paid millions of dollars.
Sure, they train hard, but so do firemen, what the fuck?

Basically it comes down to the values of our society, and currently they are fucked up. We pay millions of dollars for the wrong reasons, be it running in circles or lying to a camera.

you must realize that there are many ways in which to express the greatness of being human. 

althetics are one of them.

atheltics cultivate our natural warring urges into a beautiful spectacle of human acomplishment.  it doesnt matter if you find the end result impressive its the process that you should recognize as amazing.

why would jocks hate on skateboarding?


u are implying that sports take your individuality

LOL @ U

the impressive thing with sports is how all the individuals act as one while still displaying unique abilities from each other.

while you as a skater make your body work for the idea in your mind

a soccer team will work very hard to connect all of their bodies to THE MIND or the team in order to act effortlessly as a whole.

I hear what you are saying. Guess I just love skateboarding too much :jamming:  But I am personally an abstract type of thinker, that is why I am not personally a fan of team sports. seems limiting. but def takes a lot of work and a straight mind

Is "sitting around on a couch getting drunk on beer and eating chips and watching muscular men kick a ball around and pat each other on the asses with my friends" on that list? I think that's what this thread is about.




well fatasses that want to relive their jock days are soo retarted and i hate on them too.

i was just tryin to dispell peoples notions that sports are lame and for jock retards.

This thread is ridiculous.  Makes me think I'm really am surrounded by a bunch of judgmental, pretentious eggheads.

Why is it so hard to understand what is attractive about sanctioned competition?

Sports bring out incredible qualities in people.  Mental focus, body control, teamwork, self-mastery, skills of all sorts.  They reveal character and passion.  They create legends and sagas, without nations getting conquered and people being exploited.  Being a sports fan is about getting behind people.  Real characters, some of them unforgettable.

What's wrong with that?

The human body and spirit are both incredible, and they are on showcase in all sports.  I think it is amazing what top athletes can do.

If you can't see the higher motives in sports, too bad for you, you just don't get it.

And what's all this bullshit about the betterment of society?  How many of you live solely for society's sake?  Every day I must see ten threads that are nothing but bitching about society.  Half the people dissing sports here probably follow dumb TV shows and don't recycle.

I can see the attraction in organized sports and competition, it's just not my bag. I prefer to get my outdoor activity time through passive enjoyment of nature, on hikes and such.

But sports nuts are just as bad as comic book nerds and MMO addicts and soap opera viewers. Good for you if you actually PLAY sports, but obsessing over professional athletes and teams is really lame. They are definitely paid too much.

:whatever:

Sports (for the people playing) are about money and fame.
If these sports figures weren't getting paid millions of dollars.......they wouldn't be doing it.

Period.

Sports (for the people watching) are about bragging rights and betting. People could care less how much work the players had to go through to get on the team, they just want their team to win.

It is an ignorant pass time that IMO shouldn't be allowed on TV. If you wanna see a game pay the $$$ and go see it in person.

but IMO most of the trite on TV today shouldn't be there...thats why I don't watch TV.

That's retarded.  Athletes that become rich from their sport are the elite of the elite.  ALL of them have to play for years and years with little or no pay to even have a chance to try out for a major league team.  NOBODY makes it to the big leagues who doesn't love the game.  Not one fucking person.  The competition is too fierce. 

High-profile athletes make a lot of money because they generate a lot of money for their employers.  This is called business.  Let me guess, you think anyone with lots of money is a greedy pig, right?

If sports aren't your thing, that's fine.  But if you think it's all about money, you're way off the mark.

I guarantee you that if they didn't have the opportunity to make large sums of money they wouldn't play.

Kinda like the lottery.

Dude people play all kinds of sports all the time with no intention of ever being rich or famous from it.

You think beer-league baseball players are secretly waiting for an MLB scout to show up and 'discover' them?  Come on man, sports are fun.

You think Olympic shot-put athletes do it to make millions in the lucrative shot put circuit?  Why is it so hard to believe people actually like playing sports? 


And why am I arguing with someone who obviously doesn't get it?  :suicide:
