SPORTS RULES THAT ARE SILLY AND CONTROVERSIAL
Added on: 28th Dec 2016
IN KYOKUSHIN STYLE KARATE, YOU AREN'T
ALLOWED TO PUNCH PEOPLE IN THE HEAD,
BUT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO KICK THEM
IN THE HEAD
Yea, we know it’s to protect the puncher’s bare hands.
But if we’re so worried about hurting ourselves,
what about the guy’s head when he gets kicked?
Shouldn’t that be protected too?
Note: it’s combat, we’re being sarcastic.
EVERY RULE OF FERRET-LEGGING
Seeing how long you can hold a ferret in your
pants is in and quite silly.
THE SEEKER AND SNITCH IN QUIDDITCH
Ever since quidditch became an actual sport (we’re
being serious, usquidditch.org), it has become
apparent that JK Rowling never intended for humans
to try playing it. The snitch was just a plot point to
make Harry important, but now on college campuses
people are chasing “snitches.”
THE AMATEUR RULE IN THE OLYMPICS
At least back when it was in effect.
LOSING POINTS IN GYMNASTICS IF YOU
DON'T HAVE PERFECT HAIR
Now you know why every gymnast’s hair looks like plastic.
PENALTY ON THE CROWD IN NFL IF THEY
WERE TOO LOUD
Guess what happens when you penalize the crowd for
yelling to loud? They yell louder! Thankfully, this rule is gone.
DESIGNATED HITTERS IN THE MLB
Because the American League has designated hitters
and the National league doesn’t, the World Series
basically changes depending on which stadium
it’s played in.
LOVE 15, 30, 40
Don’t date tennis players…love means nothing to them.
GOLFERS NOT BEING ALLOWED TO ASK
THEIR OPPONENTS FOR ADVICE
It’s a penalty if they do.
