some other sport and why?<br />
<br />
I watch more golf than anything. After years of being a St. Louis Cardinal fan and a Cowboy fan, I’ve lost interest. Not so much for political reasons for football but a general love of a sport where playing well is the only way you make money. Guess NASCAR and tennis have that element as well but never was a Motorhead and tennis for me died after I stopped playing in my 30s.

    Once college football starts, golf on TV stops for me. The Ryder Cup is the one exception but with it being across the pond this year it makes viewing times match up less with college football.

    Football both pro and college puts golf on the backburner.

    Any football (especially SEC), college/NBA basketball, and Cubs playoffs...would rather watch any of those instead of a run of the mill PGA event. Now if its a major, all other sports will be swapped for golf.

    My thoughts exactly. I feel like the only person in America that didn't watch TW win this past weekend. I will try to watch some Ryder Cup this week if there aren't any good games during the same time. During Masters week, God forbid anybody change the channel from Augusta coverage.

    I didn’t watch. But I do watch a lot. Even college football has lost some of its appeal for me (maybe becasue Nebraska is so bad). I also watch a lot baseball and will watch even more when the payoffs start. And with the pennant races are so compelling right now, it’s like the playoffs have already started.

    Depends on the golf tourney. <br />
    <br />
    The masters and March madness take priority with college football taking the cake in the fall. Playoff baseball is high on the list too. Now that I'm thinking about, none of them really interfere and that is good cause choosing would be horrible. Multiple screens would be needed!

    Football first (although if there keeps on being 5,678 flags a game, might "punt" on it).<br />
    Baseball if the Rockies are in contention (the last couple seasons have sucked, usually I can give up by July 4th. Actually have to pay attention to the end this year and last year)<br />
    NBA playoffs sometimes, or give up once the Nuggets are out.<br />
    <br />
    However, now that Tiger Woods is back, I bumped the majors and the Tour championship above all of them. I never realized how much Tiger impacted how much I watched golf until this season. The Tiger draw is real.

    I only watch football or baseball if o am somewhere and it is out of my control what is in the tv (bar, friends house), or if I’m at a game with my wife (she likes it, I go for her enjoyment). I won’t watch basketball. If I’m at the house and have nothing to do (weather is bad and we don’t have anywhere to go), I’ll watch golf. Otherwise, I’d rather go play golf or just generally do something outside. <br />
    <br />
    I played all of the major sports growing up (football, baseball, basketball and track), but when I blew my knee out my senior year and had to quit, I lost interest completely. If my wife didn’t like football and baseball, I’d be perfectly happy never watching another minute of either.

    College football, MLB, golf (especially women’s . . . play closer to my level) and Premier League soccer, in that order. When the kneeling fiasco ends, I might start watching the NFL again.

    After the PGA I’m finished with golf. This year was different only because I wanted to see Tiger win again. Tomorrow the Bruins start so that will be my priority. All my life it was college football this time of year. But the game has changed so much I just lost all interest. All they do is pass, do not like the shotgun and the endless challenges. Just a different game. I enjoy boxing but that rarely conflicts with anything as the best fights are usually after 9 central.

    Hawkeye football and basketball (because BB doesn't really conflict) take precedence but otherwise it's golf. So that means I watch a lot. Still, Masters and Open at the top, Kapalua is nice when it comes, lots of Euro golf because of when it is on. Most other golf depends on storylines and weather, because I'll play golf weather permitting or spend time outdoors especially fall/winter with a dog before watching almost any golf.

    Except the majors and ryder cup I don't much golf on TV. Sky commentary is dull as dish water. Watch the last 2 days mainly on the BBC as its simply miles better. It's just footy on TV for me, 90 minutes of drama when it comes to the Premier league (mostly). The emotions of say the United - Newcastle game on Saturday is what pure sport is about. Only the majors and ryder Cup do that in golf... And probably the masters is the most dramatic, its just a sporting arena the back 9 at augusta

    I almost never sit down to watch golf anymore. Usually try to catch the majors and maybe the Players. I saw maybe 15 mins of the Ryder Cup. <br />
    <br />
    Ive gotten to where the only college football I watch is when UGA is playing. I did watch a lot of the Braves this year. Actually had something to cheer for. <br />
    <br />
    I guess my priorities have changed. I’d rather spend time with my family or go play golf than wasting hours watching games that don’t impact my life. Big change from a few years back.

    I had to leave for work when Newcastle was 2-up. Wish I'd recorded that game . . . never expected to hear MU would pull it off!

    It all depends on the day and time for me.<br />
    <br />
    My fiancee's family hosts a watching Party for every Cowboy game, complete with a food spread of some kind. So that is usually a Sunday no-brainer. Then we are both pretty loyal Stars and Mavericks fans, so that usually takes up the prime time spot during the winter and spring. Golf gets a lot of day time viewing on the weekends, even if it's the previous round.

    The only sport i watch regularly outside of the playoffs is football, college and pro. My biggest problem with golf on TV is the lack of drama in a lot of tourneys. It's why I love the Masters.... The back nine on Sunday has a lot of birdie and eagle chances and if you're not firing at pins someone can come from 4 back in a blink of the eye. I never miss that. But most tourneys and majors on Sundays are BORING with a guy protecting a lead and a bunch of guys playing their same game, hoping some putts will fall but content for a nice fat check in 2nd or 3rd place. <br />
    <br />
    It's that lack of drama that kills me in other sports. I can't watch baseball outside the playoffs.... 162 games, 10 bajillion pitcher changes, just too boring. Basketball has a bit more drama, but not the right kind, more guys whining and throwing up their arms and individual crap. I can't stand NBA but college is decent, mainly the tournament and a few big matchups during the season. I like hockey but not 82 games worth.... I'll watch games here or there, but kind of same deal, not much regular season drama.<br />
    <br />
    Football is good because for a lot of teams, you lose and you're out. I like college for the unpredictable nature and crazy plays. Pro is not as good, but can be fun, can't wait for the shootout tonight. It's also good because you don't need a ton of focus on it.

    Love to watch. Golf. College football is second. College basketball 3rd. That’s it. I detest pro sports for the most part. I can stomach an NBA game sometimes. But depends on who’s playing. NFL ? Not a chance. Hate it. I’d rather go to the grocery store or weedeat a fence.

    I will watch Army Football anytime I get the chance (we had a great run this year...). I watch all the Majors. Then it is hit or miss except for SportsCenter in the early morning over coffee after getting some exercise. <br />
    <br />
    I agree with the general sentiment regarding pro sports except for the playoffs, which I do watch at least some of those games.
