yes!

lots of people will argue that "its boring" but if golf is exciting enough to be on TV then I think powerlifting is

There was a program a few years ago on sky sports, covered a comp. It was a bag of crap tbh.
The only people who raved about it were those on PLUK, otherwise it was just rubbish tbh.

A whole channel for it? Now that would be a waste of broadcasters money!

Millions play golf, hundreds of millions of sponsorship across the world.
Compare that to powerlifting.
Now add in those that watch golf, casual viewers, or even those who go and watch live.

I don't mind watching a bit of strongman, but powerlifting, and a whole channel devoted to it is going completely overboard, I think.

I love partaking in weightlifting but in all honesty after I've watched a few flights of lifters it all becomes a blur.

I would like to see it.

I would also like to win the lottery without playing it, and add 400kg to my total by this Sunday.

Alas none of the above is going to happen Tongue

my point was not that golf is or is not already popular, it is that it is stupidly boring and if it can be popular in the first place then I see no reason why powerlifting should not be.

heres a list of other things on tv which I believe to be considerably more boring than powerlifting.

-cricket
-those programs where they try to sell watches and stuff
-anything to do with auctions
-the news (I know its supposed to be whats going on and stuff but its really just leftie propaganda)
-the programs in which they talk about what happened in recent football matches
-anything with the word "celebrity" in the title
-all game shows
-programs about retarded nouveau riche orange people
-pretty much all daytime TV
-snooker

Unfortunatly, the homgenation of the sexes means that men now prefer to watch celeb gossip shows with their sons whilst doing the housework...

Bring back the 70sCool
