Do you turn your eyes away from replays after an athlete on TV sustains a visible injury?
Toward. I want to see how bad it is, especially so if I care about the athlete. If it doesn't look bad then I have something to be thankful about.
I watch just to see exactly what happened not because I like to see them get hurt
What kind of stupid question is this?
Is it bad I don't?
glad to hear that slikrick
More of squint nd feminine squeal
Usually, no. Unless it was something generally disturbing, I would watch it more than once
@slickrick2 which team do you work for?
No I just wish I didn't have to pay for ESPN
I work on the production crew of an nfl team. I can tell you that they don't even show you the worst replays. If its really bad it just gets buried in the media vault.
Ha, I broke my neck, ribs, and nose in a skiing accident last year. Healed fine, but injuries just don't impress me at all. I was a bloody mess, and I saw pictures of it afterwards
lol @bp we are so twins
Of course. Reminds me that I am a human with limited time to exist.
I don't watch sports. boring.
I don't turn away, but I cringe and grab whatever part of the body that was injured and think of how it would feel.
Curiosity killed the cat
Anyone see Johnny knox's injury a few weeks ago during the bears game? Now THAT was painful to watch.
Morbid curiosity is natural. Gotta look and go "EWWWWW, glad that wasn't me!"
Of course not. We want to see to see the bone protruding from the leg!
is it a male female thing? do more men watch than women?
Well, for me it depends on the injury, if its a usuall injury, I could watch, something more serious, I could still handle. But if it is really bad or kind of gory or something, I would probably look away
No, because I'd miss the huge hit that injured him
is it natural curiosity to look or morbidly so? I don't want to see someone in pain so I don't watch
I remember a raider had his leg bent completely backwards, makes me sick to even think about that
It depends on how abnormally the bone is bend.
No I am a graduate nurse so I have clinical curiosity. Of course I feel very sorry for the injured player and hope for the best for him/her.
Cringe, yes. Turn away, no.
@ryno. Those guys make more in a year than I will in my life...for playing a game... I don't feel much sympathy
No. That's not entertainment. It's a man's (or woman's) livelihood going down the drain.
I always look, like when Eric Wood of the Buffalo Bills snapped his leg.
@Hitchens That was buster posey of the giants. He was done for the year as well as the giants's playoff hopes
I always squint my eyes and say"Oooooh that sucks."
nothing to enjoy here
Nasty injuries. I watch that.
Half the fun of seeing a millionaire player getting hurt .
I don't remember who it was but the was a collision at home plate this year in the MLB and the guy's leg basically snapped in half. I couldn't watch it a second time.
What kind of a question is this? They must be running out of things to ask
that's why i watch sports.
that many people watch??? no way. I gotta turn away. ;)
so...23% of men are now gay. I didn't know the percentage had risen so high.
And miss the drama? PPPFFFFFTTTTTTT
MCR- how can you be so heartless?
@jhello, you play sports blindfolded? Impressive
I laugh, at least now they've kinda done something to earn that paycheck
I don't watch sports... I play them.
I've had two ACL knee replacements, so when an athlete goes down, it just reminds me of the pain I had to go through twice. I literally cringe at the site of a twisted leg :(
I cringe, especially for knee and ankle injuries (I've had my share of those), but I still watch. I don't agree with how some posts say that it desensitizes you.
