    I played darts two days ago and my arm still hurts.

    I've driven to work several times this week with no side effects.

    Therefore: Darts is a Sport, Motor Racing isn't.

    Council of Europe definition of sport:

    "Sport" means all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels.
    There both sports.

    Formula 1 is a hobby which allows companies to offset advertising costs against their tax bill.

    I agree. I see F1 as a hobby for people with more money than sense.

    Much like poker, except it's entirely predictable.

    It's Andy Fordham, obviously. He is able to balance on two legs, an important part of many sports. Lewis Hamilton cannot balance on two legs correctly, and needs a car to drive him everywhere.

    There's a trophy in the first one. Something Lewis has not achieved in Formula One.

    You get a trophy for getting on the podium in each race.

    Therefore he has 8 Grand Prix winners trophies, 6 second place trophies, and 4 third place trophies.

    He also has 5 series championship trophies.

    He will also have a Formula One World Drivers Champion trophy in a couple of months.

    I think he has been pretty successful so far.

    It clearly is a sport, too. Much more so than Darts, which is little more than a pub game.

    I challenge you all to a karting session.

    Talk to me, Goose.

    Accepted.

    I will batter you, I'm mint at karting and you're a big ol' lump. Afterwards, we'll throw some arrows. You'll lose at that too.

    Do they do karts in your size? Aren't they called VW Polo's? :P

    Trophies for 2nd place don't count. Losers.

    Yes, they do karts in my size.

    Whilst weight is a major disadvantage, I feel my superior sporting ability will win out.

    This will also give me an incentive to lose a lot of weight, as I think if I weighed in at 2 stone less I would be lapping you for fun.

    I will lose at arrows, but it's ok, as I only don't like losing at sports.

    Do you consider Watersports a sport?

    Andy Fordham is sporting spirit personified.

    He competed in the World Championships 6 months after a heart bypass operation. I'd like to see Fernando Alonso do a GP after open heart surgery.

    Not gonna happen, cos he's not a sportsman.

    The difference is, for Darts all you have to do is stand in a pub and throw things at the wall.

    Driving a single seated car is ridiculously hard. It takes an enourous amount of skill even to make it move, let alone race it.

    To use a similar example, though, Robert Kubica was involved in this crash and raced in France 3 weeks later.

    Here's another angle.

    Surely that is true sporting spirit?

    Telling your parents that you're gay.

    Although we should play doubles, and you can be on my team.
