    OT other sports

    Been quite a variety of stuff on this weekend so it got me wondering what other folk are into watching...and how close it comes to rivalling your passion for football?

    First off, for me, there's nothing that comes close. Think that's partly because my love of NUFC is rooted in my love for the city-the two are bound together.

    As for other sports, I enjoyed watching the rugby internationals yesterday (not a fan of League, though, but do enjoy watching Union) and, if the cricket is on, i'll watch that, too.

    F1? Again, I'll have it on in the background if I'm doing some work (which is, like, always on a Sunday ) but not really arsed who wins.

    I know folk have mentioned tennis but it seems to be more about power than artistry these days and i haven't seen a single game this time round.

    I'll watch the boxing-again, if it's on and some UFC for the same reason.

    Yours?

    Yes, I should have qualified what I said-i'd far rather Hamilton won but since his car is shit this year (after he was cheated out of the title last year), then I'm not really keeping much of an eye.

    I'll have F1 on in the back ground, same with cricket.

    Enjoy boxing and tennis, I'll actually watch though - have Djokovic game on at the min

    But, yes none come close to football for enjoyment.

    Literally any sport (excluding F1 ).Of course nothing comes close to Football/NUFC.
    Rugby Union & Horse Racing distant 2nds !

    Itís much quicker for me to list the sports I donít like than the ones I do. I donít like any of the US sports and I donnít like volleyball or handball.
    NUFC comes first, love rugby union and cricket and like just about all the others from horse racing to surfing, to darts, snooker and tennis!!!

    Footie tops the list but

    Gymnastics, although rarely on is a must watch and things like the olympics - watch wvwerything we can catch on there

    in normal time - rugby union as in The Falcons and England are not to be missed

    the lasty few years tennis and snooker seem to have gone out the window, where i used to watch avidly, i rarely bother these days.

    the habit has been broken

    i also tend to watch f1 as my son always has it on - i like to see who wins but the race is just background noise unless something unusual happens to capture my attention

    For me, football and horseracing are way out ahead followed by test cricket when the top teams are competing and international rugby union.

    In my younger days, I would watch anything and everything but over the years I think a lot of the sports have become more and more predictable and thus boring.

    I'm a snooker and Ronnie O'Sullivan fan. He makes an incredibly difficult game look easy and imo, he's the best sportsman England has ever produced

    Obviously football and NUFC are the main sports watch, however i watch a lot of cycling and MLB baseball in the summer and the NFL in the winter.
