Hockey isn't anticlimactic!

In the last couple of minutes basketball and football slow down to a snails pace. Constant fouls, free throws, timeouts, fake injuries, running the clock. Basketball and football are great sports up until the last couple of minutes, then they are so f*cking anticlimactic. It actually makes me angry.

In hockey the last minutes are some of the most exciting parts of a game. Especially if it's close. You'll never see a more exciting finish than an NHL playoff game.

Ya I get why people like basketball and football. I love watching them as well. The ending just pisses me off. So much back and forth lots of build-up in excitement and then it just dies when the clock gets around 1-2 minutes. Then you have 20 minutes of nonsense before the game is over.

I think hockey is much more exciting than football or basketball. Its just played with so much more emotion. Plus the fighting aspect brings in another dimension that the other two sports cannot. Playoff hockey cannot be beat

Hockey is my number 1 sport. I watch it more than anything else. The speed and emotion can't be rivaled.

since when does the most exciting = most popular.

I guess soccer is the most exciting game in the world because it's the most popular?

Hockey is pretty lame OP, sorry. Basketball is my favorite out of them all. The last few minutes of a basketball game are the best. Gotta be clutch as fuark.

Soccer is better than hockey. There's a reason even cold as phuck countries like Sweden, Russia, Norway all watch and play it more.

It's cheap and fun. Thank god every sport isn't like hockey. Only a small pct of people would be able to play.

I will never support any sport that allows fighting and justifies it by saying it's "part of the game" and "it's just the way it always has been, it's tradition" (unless it is a sport where fighting IS the sport).

OT in the NHL playoffs is so fukkin intense. Yotes - Hawks series probably took years off of my life last season, good god. That panicky feel whenever the opposing team is controlling the puck in your defensive zone.

The coverage that hockey gets in the states is atrocious.

Agreed OP. Football is my favorite but hockey is the most exciting for sure.

agreed OP

brb physical game non stop for 60 minutes until the last horn blows.
brb allowed to fight.
brb don't fake injuries or dive like the other sports.
brb they take a puck to the face and bleed everywhere, get stitched up and back on the ice same game.

Hockey is definitely exciting, but football reigns supreme my 4 eyed friend

I agree OP.


Only thing is hockey can be just as droll if the score is like 8-1. I wouldn't limit excitement to a sport. ANY sport can be exciting when close and down to the wire.
