Which sport is more boring to watch on television?

Golf

Side Score: 11
VS.

Fishing

If you need to take a nap, there is nothing like throwing on a nice golf tournament and settling down for a snooze. I think it's the only thing more boring than watching paint dry. Now, if you're talking about watching golf live that's another story.

In my opinion, I believe that Golf is the most boring to watch on televisyen. We have to wait before an excitement begins.

this has to be the most boring sport around not just on tv. all you do is hit a little ball, what fun is that actually? I mean Fishing you actually can have a fight when catching a FISH, in golf what kinda fight do you have? There isn't any. Yes I have tried both. Golf is the worst.

I have to disagree with you here. Golf is one of the most exciting and challenging sports to play. You can't really gain an appreciation for how talented these PGA golfers are until you actually get out there and try the sport for yourself. With Tiger's recent surge (4 wins in his last 5 tournaments) and his unbeleivable comeback in the Arnold Palmer classic, how can you say this is boring to watch? Check out this video from the 2005 Masters and tell me that's not exciting.

There are some instances where golf can be very interesting to watch, and certainly people like Tiger Woods add dynamic personalities to the sport. If you are rooting for someone, and they make a great shot, it can lift you off the couch. Fishing, on the other hand, has no personalities, no tense moments and generally is less interesting than watching paint dry.

Of course fishing, you just see people fish. But in golf at least they hit the ball and try to put the ball in the hole. In fishing, you just fish for fish.

Fishing is a jerk at one end of the line waiting for a jerk at the other. Although sittin back with a cold 12-pack and casting a line out in the water is a great way to relax (and get hammered at the same time).

Fishing is watching a man play tug of war with a small no armed or legged animal, where the man has a clearly bigger surace to grab and pull from, whereas the fish can only pull from it's mouth, causing pain and getting further away where eventually it will be pulled onto the boat, without permission or invitation.

Golf involves many men competing in a game of strength, accuracy, skill and analysis of the playing conditions, not to mention how much variety there is, it's not just water surface but bunkers, water obstacles and many other things. Golf stands a fighting chance of being interesting because there is a goal to beat. Fishing is just "HEY THIS FISH IS BIGGER THAN YOURS, SUCKARRRR"

Bassmaster tournaments are on ESPN all the time. Its a sport...and if you like beer its a freaking awesome sport.

The Bassmaster tournaments can actually be pretty entertaining. I think it has to do with the atmosphere. Golf is a little too serious for me. I also love fishing and SUCK at golf, so that may give a little insight to my opinion ....

I didn't even know they showed that on TV.. but if it is anything like the real life.. it is BORING...

I have watched golf and not been totally bored out of my mind with it. Fishing on the other hand takes the gold with easy! What is more fun than watching bored people doing nothing on a boat?

If you can count fishing as a sport, it's the most boring, hands down. "It looks like Smith has got himself a tug. He's reeling, he's reeling, he's reeling. Oh, the fish got his bait. What a tough brake."
