Can such sports as basketball, hockey, baseball, cricket etc. have anything to do with fetish (in our sense of what fetish is, I’m not talking about game/TV addiction)? Cheerleaders come to my mind first
(and proverbial huge cocks of huge basketball players). You may say, that cheerleading is a (fetish) sport by itself not related to any other game.
True, unless the team members play with cheerleaders using the game rules. (See also Hockey and shiny pantyhose).
