    Same for me, played hockey for many years, but I find it dull to watch.

    I had a Leicester Tigers season ticket for ten years, but I find the sport doesn't excite me now.

    I used to cover 100+ football games a year - now it's been 19 years since I last saw a game of soccer. I've seen more Super Bowls live than Premier League games.

    Now octopush, there's a real sport.

    maybe subject to another thread but imo sports where the winner is decided by a panel (ski jumping, figure skating, gymnastics, dressage, diving, etc) are extremely boring and intransperent

    Now if they combined ski-jumping with target shooting at the same time .... or even biathlon where they had to hit real animals instead of targets .....

    OK maybe not.

    Most apart from cricket, football, golf and rugby.

    Do like the Olympics.

    Horse racing and F1 probably the most boring
