    Depends. If it's my team, then heck no.

    Any other time, it's boring.

    Depends on who the dominator is.

    For me the ideal situation would be my favourite dominating. Which is the case in some sports I watch regularly. :p

    If it's Manchester United in the Premiership or Australia in the cricket (I love being dual-national :D ) then no.

    If it's Chelsea in the football or anyone else in the cricket, hell yes. [face_plain]

    That's basically the same for me as well. It's pretty hard not to love it when the team/person you barrack for wins everything. In the cricket, I'm loving the fact that Australia is nigh unbeatable. As another example, in tennis, I still watch it, but I don't really watch Federer play all that much. I just assume he wins all his matches.

    So Depends on who the dominator is.

    Like the persons above said, it depends on who it is. It can be both boring or fascinating - and it also depends on the sport in my view. If I'm not that interested in the particular sport, it is less interesting. But if I really love that sport, it's mostly the opposite. ;)

    Depends. Watching the 49ers dominate the NFL in the 80s, for example, was far from boring, they were amazing to watch.

    It's only "boring" if you're not a fan of the team.

    Depends. It's much easier for me to be bored if it's one team blowing out another team, but individual domination is exciting. I love watching LeBron and Tiger.

    Only if I'm not on the dominating team. Otherwise it's a blast.

    Depends on who the dominator is. When the Cubs dominate I can sit and enjoy all day long

    Doesn't matter whether my own team or anothers dominates, its just plain boring unless the other team makes a straight away towards the end.
