What bothers you most about your favorite sport?

 Every time I sit down to watch a sporting event something invariably happens that bothers me. I am not a difficult person and I don't make a habit of looking for the "bad things" in sports but I'm sure I am not the only one that feels this way. Here are a few of the things that grind my gears. I apologize if anything I say offends you - it is not meant to be malicious. Feel free to add to the list.

Basketball - A player makes (or misses) a free throw and has to slap hands with his teammates. (Just shoot the ball dummy.)

Football - A player makes a tackle, pounds his chest and runs toward the middle of the field. (Look at me, I tackled, I'm good!) 

Hockey - Fighting (I know, it's a part of the game to hockey purists but no other sport allows it. Maybe they should in women's tennis!)

Baseball - The designated hitter. (If you can't hit, you don't belong here. What's next - a designated runner for guys that are slow?)
