good quiz :) 10/15
Oct 8th, 2009 at 23:00 GMT
Cannot believe that no form of running or athletics is in the top 15. Especially ahead of Bocce (wtf is that?) or Dragon Boat Racing (again wtf is that?).
Oct 8th, 2009 at 23:02 GMT
cant believe swimming or athletics isnt there. are they in any sort of order?
Oct 8th, 2009 at 23:16 GMT
bad quiz. no order, no explanations, no distinction between group and individual sports... just pointless.
Oct 8th, 2009 at 23:19 GMT
Just "handball" should be allowable.
Oct 17th, 2009 at 17:20 GMT
your link says that volleyball is played by 750million more people than football....somehow I doubt this
Oct 17th, 2009 at 17:22 GMT
oh and more people dragon boat race than play Cricket? Yeah. Consider that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh play cricket, that's 1.5b people alone not even including South Africa, England, Australia, New Zealand,Sri Lanka the West Indies etc

it won't accept 'judo'
Nov 5th, 2009 at 05:01 GMT
"handball" doesn't work for "team handball"? That's lame.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 03:17 GMT
volleyball is actually very popular worldwide but some of these sports seem a bit unpopular to be most played
Apr 1st, 2010 at 22:19 GMT
I knew football would not be there, thats only known by a few americans, the rest of the world is smarter
Apr 16th, 2010 at 07:44 GMT
I'm surprised that auto racing's not in there.

Should accept "ping pong" for table tennis
Oct 19th, 2010 at 08:30 GMT
No, you shouldn't accept "ping pong" for table tennis. You should, however, accept "hockey" for field hockey.
Dec 11th, 2010 at 12:26 GMT
you should give hockey as an alternative answer for ice hockey
Aug 21st, 2012 at 07:17 GMT
Should accept Hockey not Field Hockey, Soccer should be Football and have Gridiron as alternative to American Football.
Jan 20th, 2013 at 18:47 GMT
Should accept 'rugby for pussies' for American football.
