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

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.

Red Space Person : If sports replaced war, then I'd get interested.

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

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.

Jason Ranger : Me in a nutshell 

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. 

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!

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.

Bhekinkosi 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.

Rui Arruda : Spectator sports are a way to create drama and resolve it, just like movies and video games. You can root for a character in a TV series to stay alive, and you can root for a team to become he champions. The reason movie stars and successful pro athletes get paid so much is because they are part of a tiny minority that entertains millions. Anything else you guys "don't understand" or think is "stupid"?

Kevin Nguyễn : Accurate. I should know; I was one of them.

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

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.

Jacob Duchaine : I think it'd be funnier if you did one showing what it would be like 'If Your Friends Loved Everything Like They Love Sports."

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.

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!

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.

B2525 : A couple of  things I dont understand about sports fan 1)buying tickets instead of watching it on tv  2)fantasy sport  teams 3)I dont get the affiliation thing either when most of the people playing for a sport team are not even from that area the team represent.They have no allegiance to the sport teams area so why are you upset//surprised when they leave?

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

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

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.

Stacy Mado : 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.

Julianna Kopa : Parks and Rec!! So good!

SUNKEN SATURN : did you mean: Hipsters?

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.

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

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.

PixieoftheWood : I'm like this about sports but...I'm not actually sorry. I'm just amazed that there's literally anyone else in the world that feels this way about sports, because it seems like everyone is crazy about them, and I think that's the reason some people become so vocal about it. There's a certain frustration that comes from people acting like something is the single most important thing in the world when you can't even understand why they like it that doesn't really happen with movies or other forms of entertainment. What I'd really like to see, though, is if people talked about everything like they talk about sports. "I know he beat the child within an inch of his life, and the kid is currently being kept alive by machines, but kicking him off the chess team is just too harsh. I mean, he's just too talented to throw that kind of thing away." "I know he punched out that woman and dragged her off by her hair, but did you read his latest book? He's way too awesome to really hold that against him!"

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

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

David Benedict : Sports are made for bookies ,silly people. stop being cheerleaders .

Newt Train : Sad thing is, most of these fit me perfectly.

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.

Über : what ever happened to dan? i liked him.

Chris Leonard : How can people actually not like sports?

Dipshit McIrishpants : heres a valid critisism, sports are set on a bunch of rules, to be good at the game you just have to be good at the rules. talent has to stay inside the box. which leaves no room for any creativity. Its basically a way for simple minded people to feel apart of something, because it doesnt require thinking, just alot of body mass in most cases. and the cliche that I, as a gamer, hate most dearly... "Its good for you"... O fuck off!

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.

Andrew Greydays : Sorry, didnt work. Still think sports are for douches.

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

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

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...

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

Emiscary1 : "You're not actually an Avenger you know..." Here in a nutshell is what's most annoying about sports: the naked sycophantic obsession. See, people who like comic book movies don't put on "Agents of Shield" uniforms every time they watch one, then talk afterwards about how: "Oh *we* totally defeated Ultron last night." But sports fan do exactly that. Why? Well, it's because 90% of what makes *watching* sports (not playing sports) enjoyable is a combination of: Mob mentality, empty vicarious achievement & petty regional pissing contests. So naturally: "*We* wont he game last night." Because the fantasy that you're actually involved in something greater than yourself is most of the appeal. If sports fans were actually honest, it wouldn't be nearly as much fun. "Oh, the guys who were paid by a man who owns a regional sports franchise in the city I live in beat the guys who were paid by a man who owns a regional sports franchise in a city that I'm expected to pretend I hate. WHOO!!! I CHEERED SO POINTLESSLY LOUD I GOT THE NEIGHBORS DOGS BARKING! The guys I cheered for even won a meaningless trophy!!! GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!!"

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

redrounin : I DON'T CARE ABOUT SPORTS.
