So what other sports are folk into outside of the pars?

I go down and watch aberdour shinty regularly (my middle one used to play for them)

I go to fife flyers games (always liked ice hockey, probably longer than football and been to couple of nhl games)

Watch all the F1s and went to Silverstone last two years (plus touring cars at knockhill)

Darts is another, seen MVG play Anderson twice which was brilliant

Would love to go over and watch the Isle of Man TT one year

I like to play snooker and badminton as well as football. I occasionally watch them on the TV but would much rather be playing.

Can watch pretty much anything but special mention for rugby league, Aussie Rules and NFL.

Nothing compares to football. Don`t mind snooker or darts but nothing interests me like football.

Cycling and a wee bit of Boston Red Sox when they are doing well, which isn’t very often.

Love going to watch live basketball, back in the day it was Team Solripe at Falkirk coasters arena then the Sheffield Sharks when I lived down there. Not found a team to follow live for a long time.

Boxing Is the big one for me other than football. I occasionally watch tennis but mainly just the slams. I used to watch snooker frequently but not so much in recent years.

Sadly they still have a racism problem plaguing the club.

Aussie rules is something I should watch…
I’m in Ireland probably twice a year and will normally get to a hurling or Gaelic Football match (Erne Gaels) which is a code similar to Aussies rules - I know they (used to?) play the hybrid rules Ireland v Australia each year.

What Aussie team do you recommend?

I quite like Basketball, although it only really gets interesting towards the end, and sometimes not at all.
Handball is also quite a good game but not that popular here

Horseracing is a great day out.

Like NFL, NHL and NBA and have been lucky enough to get to games in the US and in London but can`t stand the MLB.

Also like the rugby and although I think it`s pushing it to call it a sport I also like poker (legally it is one though 🤣). I used to watch a lot if snooker when I was young but I`d probably rather watch pool now.

There`s actually been a few Irish guys that have been in the AFL over recent years although many don`t make the grade.

It has to be Collingwood that you choose, black and white stripes!

Like boxing and don`t mind watching Scotland play International rugby.

It`s not a real sport but I like watching WWE when it`s done at the highest level it`s great fun to watch.
