Satan's Kitty : My parents forced me to breathe as a kid. I'm just not really into the whole breathing thing. Oooh oxygen its in the air! So what.

TheChemistryShack : Yeah I would get interested in drinking water, but everyone does it-- I want to be different!

Lilly Markus : Thing is, people ACTUALLY say this about me when I write or read

Patrick O'Ryan : I don't mind people not liking sports, I can't stand people who insist on vocalising that they hate sports.

9ineRunner : wow, I've never seen so many gifted nobel prize winners, grammy award winning musicians, oscar winning directors, pulitzer prize winners and world leaders gathered in one comment section.

ishingo69 : The thing is, this IS how many people feel about these topics. Politics, literature, tv shows, current events, arts and crafts, comics, video games, movies, and so much more. Basically, once people start talking about things other people don't like or can't contribute to, they check out of the conversation. I'm not a sports fan, but I try to listen when people talk about it, because I wouldn't want someone shutting me down when I talk about who would win if Superman fought Goku.

Char Aznable : If sports replaced war, then I'd get interested.

ri3it483qthirf : A very interesting topic that pertains to this is the value that society assigns to certain things. The only reason I don't like sports (although I like playing them) is because the value assigned to it is disproportional compared to everything else. For example, why does a football star get paid millions to chuck a ball around when there are people out there who contribute actual advancements to society? It's because the general population disproportionately assigns greater value to entertainment than to anything else. And this carries over to the movie industry where an actor (performance arts) is paid millions whereas an engineer (in science and technology) is paid tens of thousands. Disproportional. The root of the problem stems from preferences and interests of the general public. People care more about entertainment than science, a lot more. Thus, a lot more value goes toward entertainment. Demand drives the market value of compensation.

The Spectral King : I have no issue with sports. but the fanatics...

Resetti's Robot Wars Replicas : Did you see the game last night?  The guy hit the ball and then he ran around the bases, and later on, another guy threw the ball, and after about three hours, one team won, and the other team lost!  It was so exciting, and so different than baseball games from other times & places!

James Barnett : People who don't follow Harry Potter don't want to have conversations about what they serve for breakfast at Hogwarts, they don't know who the characters are and they don't get the refrences. I'm not going to lecture someone who doesn't like Harry Potter about proper spell pronunciation or go on and on about Quidditch players strengths and weaknesses or about my fantasy team. See where this is going? Don't be a douche.

Signatelli : I hate sports, I hate celebrities, I hate politics, and I don't really care for literature. Sue me. Who cares if I don't like anything? I'm just happy with curling up and doing nothing.

Fernie Canto : I don't get the humour. I mean, this is the stuff I hear in real life every day. From sports fans.

DaaaahWhoosh : I say about sports what I say about politics: it's nice when it's on, and I see the appeal, but I'm never going to learn everyone's names. 

Jose Dominguez : It's fine if a person is not into sports, not everybody is going to like the same thing, but it's stupid when they act superior to those who do. It's just like saying "oh look at me, I don't play sports therefore I'm smarter and better than the mongoloids who play football or whatever,". It pretentious. The same goes for people who think they're better than others just because they don't like rap, pop music, modern television, and any other thing that's popular.

Bhekinkosi Jonathan Ncube : I think now you should do one about "If Your Friends Liked Everything Like They Love Sports!" I think that would add quite a lot of balance.

GuciiLePristine : Sports work to strengthen bonds between people as well as different countries, whether your the one playing or not understanding the sport and being able to use the knowledge in conversations can really help someone become more social. Just my input

SUNKEN SATURN : did you mean: Hipsters?

RighBread : People throwing a ball around on a field for the entertainment of others is not the same thing as furthering the field of science to help mankind prosper and advance. Half the criticisms on this video are inaccurate equivalences.

jmendii : i like sports and i don't care who knows, from shooting hoops to the super bowl

kevin durant : i used to be like the people in the comments. "why are sports stars so overpaid and doctors arent blah blah blah'. but once i got into sports you realise how difficult it is to become an athlete and how physical and mentally challenging it actually is for athletes. Most jobs only require a degree (3-12 years max) while being an athlete requires a whole life of dedication and hard work. Id like to see any of the people in these comments actually try to become pro athletes. enjoy having no freetime and putting your body to the absolute limit everyday.

Gurteg Bedi : "Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination." - said a greater man than any of you pseudointellectual keyboard warriors......

Voldycat : Okay but if you're asking us to respect people who love sports (which is fine by the way!!!) then you have to respect people who are passionate about other things as well. If I loved sports as much as I loved cosplay then it would be fine, but because I'm passionate about something that's not as 'popular' then I will get laughed at and criticized all the time, double standards people!

Jayton Hawkins : My hatred of sports is well founded. Most topics get a "slice" of public attention that is comparable to their importance. The arts, such as drawn, painted, sculpted, played, and photographed media, make up our current and past history. Big slice. Politics are the foundation for the how groups of people are governed. Big slice. Education topics and media devoted to knowledge are what fuel innovation and evolution. Big slice. Religion and Faith are what we use to explain the unexplained. Big slice. Media like television and comic books each take up a small slice depending on how big the fandom is. Medium slice. Social media interaction is quickly becoming our main source of communication. Medium slices. Hobbies and pastimes usually attract small groups of specific people. Small slices. And then there's sports. No expression or creation of any artistic form. Mostly uncomplicated. Needlessly competitive, repetitive, and costly. Considering the lack of impact that sports have in the real world, and the tendency for most of them to be absolutely dull and unrewarding, why does the sports industry get a MASSIVE SLICE OF PUBLIC ATTENTION? I'm not saying sports are useless. Physical fitness is important, as is social interaction and competition, but sports shouldn't have this massive following. And no-one should ever expect another person to participate in the viewing or competition of a sporting event simply because the status quo demands it.

Sarge Izzard : I like playing sports but watching them and knowing about stats, talking about who’s doing well and who isn’t, people saying “we won last night” when they literally did nothing. That kind of shit is annoying. Sports are a great equalizer though. Many people with many diverse interests can intersect and interact and that’s important to build culture. Still, I think that time could be better spend on meaningful cultural discourse instead of talking about people that you’d never meet. The same goes for talking about what you read about some celebrity in the kind of bullshit gossip rags you find near the cashier in a supermarket.

Omer Galor : Yeah, but from the other side there is something I don't care much about and people constantly talk about it and try to talk to me about. From my eyes it's more like: "-Did you watch that documentary about lamps last night? -That thing again? -No, that's a different one.  -sorry, I just don't care that much about lamps. -Ha! What are you? A chick? -Not watching a documentary about lamps makes me a chick? -You're a chick! -hmphh.... Anyway, want to hang out with the others, order some pizza, have fun? -No there's a new documentary about lamps. No way i'm gonna miss that!" And I should know, some of my best friends are sport fans. I apologies if any lamps were offended.

Dion7 : I don't mind people watching sports, but the commentators seem completely insane to me. When for instance a soccer team wins a game they talk about it like they just won a battle of life and death.

Apollys : I legitimately agree with about half the things he says here.  I think your satirical point failed.

Julianna Kopa : Parks and Rec!! So good!

Jason Ranger : Me in a nutshell 

allison vivian : I formally apologize. I have been a jerk.

Benedict B : I only hate sports fans who are so territorial they will start a fistfight because your favorite Elephants player bats lefty. Or you wore the wrong colors on your sleves at the game. Its just idiotic.

Dakota Taylor : Well, to be fair, i couldn't care less about who wins some "Nobel Peace Prize."

NoahSly : The reason I love sports so much is because I play almost every sport competitively. And it fascinates me of amazing athletes doing amazing things. So I root for my team. All haters don't play sports or understand how amazing athletes are. And also, they are exciting to watch

Bethany James : Leslie and Ben getting together doesn't affect my life? First of all, *how dare you.*

Kirill Koopa : I don't hate sports, but I don't care much for them either. However, sports are a form of entertainment. While it's true that some of these things are incomparable to sports in terms of importance (e.g. medicine), you cannot say the same for forms of entertainment. There are people who don't watch TV, people who don't see movies, people who don't listen to music (maybe), people who don't care for poetry, people who don't go to the theatre, people who don't read books, people who don't part games, etc. Sports is just a form of entertainment, guys. You don't have to like it, but you can if you want. Just as long as you don't criticise others for liking it, everyone can keep being entertained in the ways they like best and all will be good. I think what this video was trying to say was not to criticise people and the things they like just because you don't like them.

aarongtr180 : The difference is that topics like science and voting are actually extremely important while sports aren't, and art and music can have massive cultural and even political impacts that sports just never do (with a few exceptions, such as the introduction of Jackie Robinson into the MLB). The logic behind this video is horrible. It's still funny though!

stephencolbert5 : Sports are like Dora the Explorer to me - simple entertainment for simple minds. Honestly, I have fond memories of going to baseball and hockey games with my dad and brother when I was a toddler, but now I just find sports mind-numbingly simple and boring to watch. I think this is what's at the root of people's disinterest in watching sports, but they say other things like "why do you care when you're not part of the team" because saying what I just said - "you only find sports interesting because you're simple-minded" - is even more insulting (but true). Also, reality TV shows (especially ones about big-butt prostitutes) are a million times more simple and more for simple-minded people than any sport or episode of Dora the Explorer could ever be!!!

Black Phantom The SJWeeb : I don't like professional sports because it's basically making a game more competitive than it already is. You start taking it too seriously and it's no longer fun. You start wanting to murder a teammate for a mistake he made (he/she is only human, nobody's perfect) because a shit-ton of money is on the line instead of pointing it out and saying something like "Hey, no worries it's just a game". Imagine how much I dislike professional gaming in that respect...

Cocolamoco : Damn it! So this is what I look like!

HeathenBenny : In fairness, the student government kids _were_ the biggest douches in my school.

megamonstudios : sports fun to play (when you aren't being hit with a soccer ball at full strength at point blank range) not fun to watch

Graham Kavanagh : It's bad that I actually know someone who acts exactly like all of the personas in this video...

Mark Potts : i don't see what's so fascinating about people hating on sports. i mean, it's just a bunch of people complaining about what other people do that doesn't affect them at all.

AstroZombie420 : IMO sports are kinda like video games, they are fun to play, but boring to watch other people play them.

Eugene Tumusiime : Breathing is so overrated. I have no idea why people do that.

Rui Arruda : Cool, from the dislike bar you can see the ratio of people who dislike sports

CatMaster90001 : Some of the statements in this video are actually _valid_, though. Way to go nuts on the strawman fallacy, CollegeHumor.

Aliodrocy : 1:50 Who needs medicine? Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah bl- my arm feels weird OOWAHH! XD ROTF LMFAO!

Aidan Pau : If you don't like sports (like me) find friends that are the same so you don't talk about it
