NOT A FUCKING SPORT. This might be confused for a sport because it has the word in it, but don't be tricked by this fucking bullshit. If you want a real sport play hockey, football, basketball, even fuckin soccer. This is a game for "nullers" which is a term for gamers that is offensive and/or derogatory. If you know a person who relies on gaming to make money FUCKING KILL THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
