    Any sport that involves a piece you whack called a `shuttlecock` is not cool.

    Okay I`m a fan of badminton..But there`s too much slow-mo there man. Of course everyone here is gonna say it`s boring. They`re not even playing! They`re just hitting around.

    If they`re trying to make badminton cooler than it already is, slo-mo`s and cheesy music isn`t the way to do it.

    And I`m surprised a lot of americans dislike it so much. Us asians love it.

    And spinning the racquet fails to capture my interest, even less in slo-mo

    Jeeze, Shanir, calm down...

    Badminton is still not a cool sport, but its always fun to get the cousins together at family reunions and play...

    If there`s not a swimming pool, that is.


    And yeah, trickshots? Sorry, but to me, those were nothing compared to what I`ve seen done in tennis and raquetball.

    Shuttlecock.


    Very good game, power isn`t needed like in most sports. Tactics, agility, endurance, vision... Very good sport, entertaining to play against a good opponent as well.

    Yeah, I agree with RedBrother. I am living in a large Asian country now, and badminton is hugely popular here. Even guys play it! I was shocked. I thought it was like croquet, you know, something old ladies in sunbonnets played before tea, or something you play at your grandmother`s house because you are 10 years old and there is NOTHING else to do.

    Really, that birdie does go very fast, but why would you play badminton when you could play tennis? That`s like learning how to figure skate when you could play ice hockey.

    I used to play badminton competitively and it`s a challenging and fun sport requiring speed, agility, stamina, strength, and quick thinking. Fun fact, "Men`s doubles player Fu Haifeng of China set the official world smash record of 332 km/h (206 mph) on June 3, 2005 in the Sudirman Cup. The fastest smash recorded in the singles competition is 305 km/h (189 mph) by Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia."

    It`s funny how people are single-minded. We could take any sport and immediately say it sucks. Play it once, lose horribly, then say it sucks, referring to yourself at the sport.

    Personally I play Badminton. Why? Because it was the most interesting sport I`ve played. That`s the only reason anyone likes a sport. I suck at it, but hey, no one`s perfect.

    We could post up any sport, there will be people who dislike it. I`ll outright say I hate basketball, and you`ll see someone bash me on this.
