My teams i follow are Maple leafs/Raptors/Blue Jays/Dolphins

The only sport i can't really watch especially if my team is bad is the Basketball. Football and hockey are enjoyable to me even when my team is bad. Baseball is 3rd on my list but more towards the enjoyable side then where basketball is.

The problem i have with basketball is that the level of contact needed to call a foul is just unreal. I don't think basketball should be a game where people close-line others so they don't shoot the basketball but allowing some contact would be good.

edited just to add a few little tidbits.

I expect football will be a universal answer. Orlando City is really the only other one for me.

I watch a lot less sports in general when I'm not watching my own team.   But I can still watch an NFL game.  I don't usually watch SNF or MNF anymore unless the Dolphins are league-relevant anymore, but I certainly used to.

Football is pretty much it.  I will watch playoffs in football if Dolphins aren't in it.
And maybe NBA if it's a player I find interesting.

My favorite basketball team has been "in suspended operations" for 15 years and I still enjoy the NBA, so basketball would have to be my answer.

I need to ammend my answer because I was thinking purely professional. I will still watch WVU basketball.

Football and Hockey. 

I'm barely conscious of the existence of baseball anymore.  I like basketball but i don't really follow it or watch it frequently.

The Dolphins are the only team I can watch even if they are playing poorly, but it's getting harder for me to do that with them. I'll even turn off the Dolphins game if it's going really badly now and then I'll watch the game on replay (the condensed version) after the game is over.

Mostly just NFL. I watched a lot of stuff when I was a lot younger. I kept watching boxing and UFC for a while. But at some point I realized that boxing is almost as corrupt as the majority of our politicians.

I'm fanatical about football and baseball.  (Go 49ers, Go Padres) and keep up with the Suns in basketball... Nothing would change in how I watch the sport if my teams aren't doing well.

AFL is a fantastic sport, even when my team really sucks (like it did in 2020).  There are not too many games I would say lack any sort of spectacle (with the exception of say a Sydney vs St Kilda game because of Ross Lyon's defensive influence on both teams).

I guess as someone standing on the outside looking in (that's Cold Chisel reference from my youth - look it up), I enjoy most NFL games no matter who is playing (unless the skills are quite poor).

I'm reading through the responses to this, and I'm thinking "Why does Stroke keep repeating the same thing?"  Then I look at the dates and see he responded on May 31st, June 20th, and most recently Sept 23rd. lol
