Again, I am not talking about spectator sports at all. I think NFL, NBA, MLB can all approach reality TV at times. Sure they are great athletes. But sports are about competition and playing....not sitting on your ass eating a hot dog.
Anyways, that's just my opinion.

Seriously depends on what you mean by "best"... requiring most skill, strength, speed? You disregard a lot of sports as too easy. So, the only "sport" I can think of that combines strength, skill, speed, coordination, and mental toughness would be SASUKE/NINJA WARRIOR.
haha please tell me you're not serious about that basketball comment. Shooting a ball through a hoop just barely bigger than the ball itself, in traffic, with another team actively trying to stop your shot from happening is indeed hard.
Honestly, any argument made for a good sport can be countered by saying that sport is bullshit, case in point: I think LaCrosse, field hockey, ice hockey, and any other sport that closely resembles soccer is shit. I don't care the level of activity or athleticism involved. Surely this is a biased and rather close minded opinion (I’m sure those sports are fun and all) but so is yours.
To quote Vondas from The Wire upon watching a casual field hokey game “… why can’t they just kick it with their feet?..”
Chuck Norris is the greatest sport.
If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
All types of racing! (running, swimming, biking)
Now you’re saying that because you can get hit in lacrosse that somehow makes it superior to basketball.
All sports (ALL SPORTS) have varying degrees of difficulty, not all of them having to do with actual physical contact.
I never was big into tennis until I tried it and realized that it is MUCH more difficult than it seems. Now I can watch a match and be very into it and acknowledge when a player has done something that requires superior skill. I’ve never played golf in my life, but I don’t suppose getting a tiny ball into a far away hole in less than 4 tries is easy at all, yet you could still be far from an “athlete” physically and still compete at a high level…
I don’t think its possible to arrive at a conclusion for what the best game or sport is, even if you were to remove the “like” factor. Is it degree of difficulty, skill, athleticism, etc? there are many sports that require one but not the other.
