I'd like to do away with sports where judging is the only determining factor on who wins.

But my women gymnastics...

You know what though, a lot of sports can be determined by terrible referees too.

Gymnastics is not just based on jurgding though. Least, from what I remember, you start with a perfect score, and then take deductions from where you fail to do what you are supposed to, just like getting scored on in other sports, and that is how your score is determined.

Yes, but referees can be overcome in most cases.  I mean, if you were the USA Basketball Dream Team, no bad refereeing will ever change a 20-point lead.

Something's dreadfully wrong when golf is considered an Olympic sport and wrestling is not. Yes, wrestling was replaced with golf.
Hey Peter want your take on something.

If an activity/game requires skill, should it be a sport?

What is your definition of a sport?
What is your definition of skill? Chess requires great skill, but I would never call it a sport. Except maybe for rowing, sports require that you actually get up off your butt and move around.

I don't know about that.

I definitely can see playing Chess as a sport. I also think Chess is much more than requiring having a great skill, if you are playing at a high level. Such as strategy and tactics, but if you consider those skills then sure. I believe you can be a great strategian but not have the skill to execute.

Why limit sport just to certain physical activity? I think a lot of the electronic sports out there require just as much intensity, teamwork, skill, competiviness, etc. as traditional sports do.

I do think there are varying degrees within sport, something like boxing is what I would call a pure sport. Others questionable.

I guess my definition of sport is very broad.

Golf as an Olympic sport (the Masters series)? Soccer (when the World Cup is the highest prize)? Tennis (Grand Slam)? Rugby (World Cup)? Oyyy .....

And don't get me started on synchronized swimming or synchronized diving. Pretty to watch, but the conventional forms are just so much better.

Rugby 7s is what is being introduced into the Olympics, not rugby 15s, which you are right, for 15s the highest pinnacle is the World Cup, but two different codes, even though the young really vary by the players and time, not so much the rules.

American Football and rules. A buddy of mine has a brilliant analysis of the development of the "rulez" and how the progression of the importance of the "rulez" mimics cultural and capitalist development in the US.

But I ain't got time to get into I am artier-than-you right now.

At least in badminton the players don't grope each other. I don't care how old it is. It's a homosexual sport with a homosexual history going back to antiquity when the sport was played exclusively by fully nude males.

MOSCOW, February 12 (R-Sport) - Gay rights activists with a vendetta against masculinity are behind plans to cut wrestling from the Olympic program, the coach of a London 2012 gold medal-winner told R-Sport on Tuesday.
....
“If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world,” coach Vladimir Uruimagov said, calling the decision “a blow to masculine origins.”
