I just read this from the beginning. Here are my answers:

Yes, I support the site. It gives sanctuary to those of us of the heretical view that athletes aren't gods.

No, the site does not upset me. Nothing about the site upsets me, and if any jock finds the site disturbing, it's probably due to certain ... insecurities.

I hate sports because I got addicted to them as a kid and they ate up tons of my time. (I'm still addicted, but they don't eat up as much of my time as they used to. :mrgreen: )

Yes, addictions are often very difficult to overcome.

And it's not always an addiction to a substance, like drugs or alcohol. Sometimes it can be an addiction to a thing or an activity.

Some people are addicted to gambling or video games.

I think I'm addicted to my computer and the Internet, being as how my computer is always on when I'm home and the only time it's off is when I have to go out to do my shopping.

Yeah, I even leave it on when I'm sleeping.

Fitman's Brother wrote:I do not support this site, nor do I understand why anybody would support a site "dedicated to the eradication of sports". To be clear, I came here because my brother used to post here, and he too was perplexed on why people would want to eradicate something that people enjoy.

And that's where my opposition to the site is: how can people want to take away something that others enjoy? It makes as much sense as somebody wanting to ban gay marriage because they aren't gay themselves. If you don't like sports, then don't play it. But to actually try and "eradicate" sports simply because you do not like them yourself seems absolutely selfish to me.
Of course you support this site. This site, its message and its participants quite obviously entertain you on multiple levels, or you wouldn't be here. Being here IS supporting it, afaic. And nobody's taking anything away from you, Sunshine...nobody's made any real strides since you made this post, I'm sure. I also think the word 'eradication' should be taken very tongue-in-cheek. You're just interpreting the message on the front page to suit your agenda. You don't bother reading nor commenting on any of the rest of it.

Aside from your recent and constant shadowing and trolling of Fatman, I don't think you're really here to 'defend' sports that much. Polite24 was a major bore and he put far more effort into actually defending it (and like an adult) than you seem to want to do. So, the fact that people are reacting to you the way they are honestly shouldn't be much of a surprise for you. In fact, I'm willing to bet that it isn't.

Yes, I do believe that all sports fans and jocks actually, unknowingly, support this web site by coming here to harass us.

They're actually glad that web sites like this exist for trolling purposes.

Yeah, Fitman's Brother, and Fit Man are members of the Official Sports Patroll.

The Reason I hate sports is because we have a 6 day schedule at our school (We do have Saturday and Sunday off, the 6th day is so we don't have the same days every single week) on 4 of those days we have a 1 hour long run of Phys.Ed. At the beginning we do a warm up with seriously more than 20 activities and if you don't do it you stay in for all noon time and have to write out a freaking' report! The report is 2 pages long and guess what the teachers did, They freaking took random stuff off the internet saying about how Physical Education is awesome and stuff and I despised doing it... I had to write it down, and the teacher said that you better start participating or you'll be after school for the whole year, And I'm very rarely ever in trouble. Now, I don't mind joining certain groups, Like the Student Council which is basically useless, I mean all you hear is teacher drama, But I do like are other none sports related club, Called Mine craft club, All you do is play Mine craft all recess.
But the other 15 clubs are all sports, And you can't even win anything at that school if you don't do sports, All our school is about is sports sports sports. And if you dis sports your all of a sudden a weirdo and not a single soul will like you. Not to mention I don't eat meat, and everybody in our school eats meat... But that's off the topic. I hate Sports, they are basically useless because I don't need Phys.Ed because for my job all I need is Engineering Classes in Automobiles, Art Class, Physics class, L.A. (Writing), Math and Science. If there gonna try to make me like sports they my as well hang themselves, Because it is NOT gonna happen.

good for you. Coaches make it sound like the whole world revolves around sports but it's a wide, wide, wide world out here, populated by all types of people, most of whom couldn't care less about sports.

And coaches. What kind of guy makes a career out of supervising boys? Speaking for men everywhere, we consider coaches unqualified for association with real men and real work. That's why they do what they do. The next time your coach gives you a hard time, just remember: he's there because that's all he can do.

I hate the athlete worshiping mentality that currently runs the free world. I hate that intellectual achievement is not celebrated or even welcome in our schools. I support this site because it is a place for non-sports fans to fit in. I have no use for the sports complex one can stay fit and healthy without that heresy called P.E.
:evil: Is there a way both teams can lose? :evil:

I don't hate sports. I am simply disinterested in them and don't believe we should subsidize them.
I have repeatedly asked Comcast to delete sports programming from my channel line up since I am paying for something I never use.

Today I noticed Comcast is charging a "Regional Sports Fee"of $3.00 a month. So I wrote them and asked for all of my monthly fees for this be reimbursed or credited to my account. I believe this warrants a class action suit.

By charging people something for nothing, $36. a year for every subscriber
Comcast is getting away with something that is or should be illegal,

I don't like sports because the fans are some of the worst human beings I ever came across, and the media loves to support this waste of time and money.

That is a good point. I get charged this too. How does one go about with a class action law suit?

I'm new to this site but I have to say I have always hated sports. I work in a place where sports, especially the Boston teams rule peoples lives. I see them skip meals, blow off obligations, and one person even calls into work if their team is playing. What does it really matter? Do you get paid of the team wins? No, of course not, it's just herd mentality that if you don't get observes, you must have problems. I personally follow things like the art world, scientific endeavors :idea: and real music, not that overhyped, over autotuned crap they play on the radio. I should also mention that I have a very high IQ and a very short attention span which leaves watching grown men chase a ball around a field for hours at a time very tedious and a total waste of time. So yes, I support this website, I hate sports, all of them. :idea:
Don't talk, you are lowering the IQ of the entire street. 8)
