Something with a bit of physical effort. Something with an element of winning or losing. Somethin g with confrontation.

It's not sitting down in a cosy chair, with a pint at your elbow.

So there's no element of winning or losing in snooker? I must mention that to Jimmy White the next time I'm sitting down in a cosy chair having a pint with him...

Sure - you can win or lose.

You can win or lose at Snakes and Ladders. Not a sport.`

If you are potting a brown you are probably in the wrong town.

Confrontation doesnt make a sport. Nonsense to say that.
Is swimming not a sport then? Cycling?
Plenty physical effort in snooker. And winning/losing. Tou serious about that??

Plenty physical effort ? Lol. In what way ?

OK - how do you feel about Subbuteo ? Similar skills, but, for me, still not enough physical effort to be a sport.

Eh, yes I know you can. However, I wasn't referring to Snakes and Ladders. I was referring to snooker.

Sport isnt all about physical effort though its about skill or physical prowess and snooker possess plenty.
Highly ignorant to say it isnt a sport. Also very childish

Painting was an Olympic event. Plenty of visualisation to prep for it.

I suppose if Golf is a sport so too is Snooker. You can minimize anything if you were to try to I guess.

Basketball No. 1 with the number of plays, Rugby next, Soccer & then GAA.
Best GAA coaches at plays in games were John Morrison & Liam Sammon.
Conditioned games is true coaching, watching 10 lads in a small marked out square pushing & shoving is the new coaching & an absolute ball of sh#te.

Swimming and cycling in a race is a sport.

Tootling around the Mournes on your bike, admiring the view at 60 miles a week, not a sport. That's "exercise".

Lots of things have skills. Wood turning for instance. It doesn't make them sports.

Childish ? Because I have a different view to you ? Ah - come on - sure, you're better than a cheap jibe.
