America vs Europe/Rest of the World
 
To North America & Europe 7 maybe the rest of the world seem to like different sports, of course lots are very similar but what do you think is best

Europe obviously.

Europe, and Europe in the poll should just be called 'UK', in relation to the examples you used, golf too, which was created here. The sun never sets on the British empire, the rest of the world is welcome, haha.

The big sports played in Europe are played all over the world and have world & continental championships. America's major sports are plated at a high level there and there only. Without trying to cause offense, there's a reason for that.

I much prefer the European sports. Football is obviously the GOAT sport, no question. Handball is okay too.

My favourite American sport is Lacrosse. It's a pretty badass game to play, but not the greatest spectator sport. Basketball is okay, I used to like it when I was younger, but I'd have to be pretty bored to watch it these days. I don't care for American/Baseball at all though.

These almost always degrade into total crap, but so far a decent start. ONE MORE CHANCE AT THIS TOPIC.

Olympic Handball > All.

On my holiday, I watched some of the TV Olympic coverage. My fucking god, was handball exciting to watch. And pretty violent too.

To answer the thread, European by far.

Hm.

I SHOULD vote European since I'm a huge football fan and Chelsea fan and well.. I'm FROM Europe!

But I MUCH prefer American Football to all sports and am a loyal Cowboys fan so it's difficult. But apart from American Football, all of the other American sports are boring I mean seriously.. Baseball has got to be the most boring sport on EARTH! Whereas I can sit down and happily watch a game of tennis or rugby!

That's not true at all.

Please explain to me which part is wrong.

Which American sports are played worldwide at domestic & international level to a high standard? Are there American Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey World or Continental Cups?

Football, rugby, cricket all have major worldwide participation to a high level. The same simply can't be said for American sports. Is there an American Football World Cup with 32 countries that embrace it. Rugby & Cricket also have major tournaments with fewer nations but is played professionally on a worldwide scale.
