Take the shooting this afternoon for example. Ok, Peter Wilson did well to win the gold medal and there's definitely skill to what he does, but wasn't the actual competition the most boring bit of TV you've seen this year?
Basically it was six blokes each taking 200 shots at the same bloody clay. The clays didn't vary in size or speed, and seemed to be in virtually the same position for all 1200 of the buggers. When I used to play shooting on 'Hypersports' on the Commodore 64 the clays weren't predictable at all, they came at differing speeds and heights. Peter Wilson would have had no chance against me.
And closely following the shooting in the boredom stakes is the judo. Did any of you watch that Gemma Gibbons take silver for GB earlier today? Every credit to the woman but what a bloody boring sport. As far as I could tell each "fight" was two women wearing oversized dressing gowns, and each woman was trying to grab the lapels of their opponents dressing gown. And every few seconds the referee had to stop the "fight" so one of the women could retreive the dressing gown belt that had fallen off.
Shooting & Judo are not spectator sports. Any others?
