This is a sort of “post yours” thread, so post away with the little things that piss you off in your chosen sport(s)/discipline, wether it’s certain people, something about the sport itself etc etc
I’ll get the ball rolling:
I hate it how from monday to wednesday our boxing gym is overpopulated by “just doing it for a bit of fitness” types. They skimp out on anything that takes effort, take up room, and take away valuable teaching and experience I could be getting from my coach.
I hate it when people who have never boxed a round in their lives, tell me what I fucking “should have been doing” after a fight.
I hate the amateur boxing point system.
I hate it when guys are sparring and a crowd is watching, and when one guy covers up and the other guy fires a right that lands on the arms of the guy covering, the crowd goes “ooo” like as if it actually did anything.
I hate counter-punchers. Hypocritically, I am a counter-puncher.
I hate not being able to clinch and strike in boxing, it would be oh so useful.
I love/hate having young hot women in the class. Love it because they are hot, and wear ridiculously tight clothing (leg raises are now my favorite exercise in boxing for a reason, but hate it because my coach is a horny old dog and as such we lose time he could’ve been fixing us up or showing something new to us.
I hate people in the crowd during a fight yelling at me what to do. It’s fucking hard enough to hear my corner telling me what do as it is, I don’t need 200 drunken assholes giving their spittle ridden advice through the medium of a crowd.
