[quote=“MarkH, post:7, topic:2888”]Thanks for sharing! That’s an intersting result.
Of course, Lacrosse and Rugby are also the 2 team sports on the list, which might also have an effect on the results. I tend to shy away from sports that are “judged” so gymnastics and figureskating were easily at the bottom of my list… I almost picked swimming over rugby
If you’re looking for gender trends, that would be something interesting to study… team sports vs individual events, and “score” sports and “judged” sports.
Of course, you’re biggest flaw is asking THIS group. Talked about a skewed group of individuals!! ;)[/quote]
I’m totally with MarkH and his thinking on this one.
Judged sports and especially those Olympic-type judged sports (gymnastics and figure skating) are “womens” sports so I’m not surprised by the results. I also almost went with swimming over rugby, but I recall watching some of the Rugby World Cup on Sky Sports or Fox Sports World or one of those outer channels and being quite intrigued by it all.
Still, my favorite non US traditional league sport (baseball, basketball, football, hockey and I’ll include soccer) is Australian Rules Football. It is one of the finest sports that is not played in this country.
