One of the least physically demanding sports, it requires only basic endurance, strength, or willpower. Interestingly, it inspires a ridiculous sense of entitlement in all those who participate in it. Crew members are experts at devising excuses for basic strength tests, and are mostly made up of rejects from other sports teams such as football, wrestling, hockey, lacrosse, basketball, or even track.
Joining a crew team almost always guarantees you a varsity spot.
Crew Member: Crew is so much tougher than football, I bet the football team couldn't even finish a crew race.
Football Player: 11 football players would beat 11 crew members in a fight, even at the least competitive football schools.
Crew Member: No way! Crew members are way stronger than football players!
Football Player: I bench 225, and you bench 95.
Crew Member: I only have strong muscles needed for crew.
Football Player: Hows your Squat?
Crew Member: Like 140, but thats not important.
Football Player: Deadlift?
Crew Member: 65, but its not important.
Football Player: Hang Clean?
Crew Member: 45, but it doesn't matter.
Football Player: Apparently crew members only have strength on a crew boat...
Crew Member: Damn Right! We're all super strong!
Football Player: ...
Wrestler: Could you please leave our lunch table? No one here actually likes you...

Crew is the sport of rowing a boat as fast as you can to a finishing point before another team reaches there. In the city of Malden in Massachusetts, this sport is also known as Fat Emo Kids in a Boat.
Person 1: Have you heard about the Crew team's loss yesterday?
Person 2: You mean the Fat Emo Kids in a Boat?
Person 1: Yeah.
Person 2: Yeah, I watched them lose. They didn't have enough energy to row down the river to the finish line.

This is a sport that requires substantial physical condition. Many who participate in it think that that have accomplished some godly task. Some feel as if the sport is far superior to any other sport such as football. This results in an undeserved sense of accomplishment and superiority to so called "regular sport athletes". In reality a crew team is made up mostly of athletes who have failed in all other sports or been rejected due to lack of skill. This may contribute to the attitude that rowers have towards other sport athletes.
crew captain: If you were to put eight football players in a boat and have them row against our crew team, they would not stand a chance at winning.

football captain: If you were to put 11 of your crew members on a football field against us they would most likely be severely injured and possibly killed.
