    How come the High Jump is not more popular than let's say Football ? It's way more athletic don't you think ?

    Maybe, but it doesn't hold a candle to the standing broad jump!!

    Maybe it's because of American football fans recessive gay gene. They really want to see grown men slap other grown men's butts!

    No doubt....unlike that manly sport of rugby where they crouch down and get in a scrum and grab packages at will.

    As a former high-jumper, I'd have to say that the skill level of the athletes is as great as any on a track team. But, high-jump has little appeal to the fan, compared to the other events, because there are almost no variables. It's you and the bar. To the fan, it's like watching a free throw in the midst of a basketball game.
