    The last poll engendered some interesting discussion, so I figured I'd make another poll and let the discussion and debate begin anew! This one strikes a little bit closer home for many posters, so lets try to keep this civil [​IMG]

    Here's guessing the NBA doesn't garner many votes [​IMG]

    I vote for UFC (MMA). If it has to be a "team" league, then I vote for IFL![​IMG]Down with the caste system & it's promoters!

    Who the hell were the 4 people that voted for the NBA? I suppose they like listening to hip-hop and watching MTV/BET as well

    I'm going to admit Lance that I was the 5th person to vote NBA. However I hate hip-hop, don't watch MTV and luckily we don't have BET in England as of yet! I will only watch the NBA if it's the Utah Jazz/Spurs or any other team with a significant white player on the team. If it's say LA Clippers v Detroit then I'm not going to watch it. I like the NFL aswell but being so used to rugby which is two 40 minute halfs with just one commercial break at half time I get extremely frustrated with all the stoppages and commercial breaks. I just wish it flowed more. NFL highlights are great! As for NHL, looks fun but I find it hard to follow the puck and I went to see the Mariners play when I was in Seattle 3 years ago and I will never watch a baseball game again! zzzzz.

    LOL, its ok. Although I figure you being in England you would have put other, assuming your favorite league is the EPL. I would much rather watch English football than American basketball. The caste system across the pond isnt as entrenched in the culture as it is in the US

    Ditto. UFC all the way. Chuck Liddell is on the cover of the new ESPN magazine that's coming out.

    I voted NBA. We've got the last three MVPs. I watch the Jazz, Bulls, Mavs and Suns, none of the others cept maybe the bobcats or raptors when their games are rarely shown. Boy do I miss the old Mavs. [​IMG] Probably my favorite televised sporting event is now the world championships and olympic basketball competitions. College football is my second favorite televised sport. But believe it or not, I get into live high school sports more than any of the above.

    I wonder how many folks read over this site that are here to observe us and do not share our views? I'll bet it's a bigger group then you would think.


    Let the poll stay, we can get an idea of the number oftrolls dwelling on here.

    Lance, yea being English my faveourite sports league is the English Premiership and then the Super14 Rugby due to my South African side of the family. It's a league with 5 teams from SA and New Zealand and 4 from Aussie. Best rugby in the world! and this years finalist are both South African with only 1 or 2 black players starting for the Bulls and 3 for the Sharks out of a possible 15 starting players! These Euro South Africans are big, strong, skillful and fast! I love it! I used to really dislike NFL and NBA but in the last few years especially after visiting friends in Seattle for the 3rd time these sports have really grown on me. I just hate the discrimination! But don't we all.

    Also, you can vote more than once by logging off and on. So, either we have one or two humorous trolls or we have some big time Utah Jazz fans out here! [​IMG]

    I stopped following the YoBA about 6-7 years ago as it got too "hip-hop" culture for this ol' boy.The NFL is beginning to grade on me too (thanks to the Caste System & a league for of thugs like "Crackman" Jones). Nowadays, the only sports I really follow are MMA & college football. Down with the Caste System!!![​IMG]

    KG..Boy do I miss the old Mavs too! [​IMG] Since I became aware of the caste system, the early 2000 Mavs with Nash , Nowitzki and my favorite black athlete Michael Finley were so much fun to watch on the basketball court and genuinely likeable people as well. Cuban should have shelled out the bucks to resign Nash and who knows what that team might have accomplished if kept together longer. Jason Terry for Steve Nash..give me a break.
