It's funny when people degrade a sport by simplifying it to a ridiculous degree.

Its fun to watch because you actually see guys scoring the ball, unlike hockey where you see a point every 10 minutes.

This.

One of the biggest examples of this is tennis. If you're a casual sports fan and flip channels, land on a tennis match, you're very likely not going to like it. But if you play tennis, have a decent understanding of the game, and know how impressive the stuff the pros do is, tennis can be a joy to watch. 140mph serves, constant rapid motion, it's pretty damn exciting when you're watching the right players.

Every sport has its value, it's just not readily apparent to everyone.

Its just my opinion. I think hockey is boring.

I enjoy Basketball, Football and sometimes Baseball.

That's fine. I didn't mean to come off as a dick. I just think you oversimplified hockey a little bit.

Panthers fan here.

The team is probably universally shitted on/desired to be relocated (basically the Bucks of the NHL) but I still love the beautiful game.

You got the #1 pick in a pretty good draft your team will come around soon enough and you got a great goalie in lu!

The opposite end of this is that there's no point to watching the first three quarters of basketball. Everything before the last few minutes of game feels irrelevant. In hockey, every score counts.

90's Trapping style Hockey really killed the game for this generation of fans. The game has become more exciting and free flowing since then but fans are set to thinking Hockey is boring.

Heck even low scoring games are exciting in the NHL if the scoring opportunities are there but goaltending is sharp.

Playoff hockey is exciting, the intensity is unmatched and there is nothing like sudden death overtime. The anticipation is what I enjoy the most about hockey.

Finally I don't understand how people view the game as a mad scramble or can't see the puck. I have the worst vision but have no issues seeing the puck.
