If the dance is danced competitively such as in Ball Room Dancing competitions, then it's definitely on topic. If it's not then no.

I would say they are on-topic as a general subject; the example list of questions which are on-topic here (8 years old now, but I don't believe the consensus has significantly changed) includes "broadcasting" and two questions specifically about commentary. Usual disclaimer here: being on-topic as a general subject does not mean that all questions ...

You can name it a fandom question, but even if the question will be about the statistical aspect of the curse, essentially, it will be looking for: Which games Mick Jagger has attended Which team Mick Jagger was supporting in these particular games? And these 2 questions don't really lie within our scope. I think it's off-topic.

I skipped that close review post, because I was having second thoughts, only to realize this meta post afterwards. What strikes me is that people find the question too broad, but fail to edit the question. I thought the request itself was pretty clear, but with too much text. I reviewed the question (edited) and in this state, I find the question Sports ...

My take: Personally, I'm not too interested in these trivia style questions. However, there is clearly an interest in them from our community of users. Stack Exchange communities do in general have a fairly large amount of discretion in order to define what is "on topic" for their community, even if the same sort of question would be off-topic on a "typical"...

These questions are interesting. I didn't know what the Gagarin Cup is (I could have made reasonable guesses, and they were close in this case) but now I do. These questions are niche. The fact that it takes more than viewing the first page of Google is not a reasonable argument against them; in fact, it's a good reason to have them on Stack Exchange. ...

My view would be that this kind of question would still be off-topic. I personally think that the use of data science to improve performance in fantasy sports leagues is an interesting subject - but that doesn't mean it is on-topic here, as the community had a pretty strong consensus that fantasy sports are off-topic. While it's true that there isn't a ...

In my opinion (which matters quite a lot as it's my answer - we're a lot more tolerant of radical edits to questions than to answers), I was happy with the example that's there. In particular, as far as I can see from the clip you've linked to, I don't see the player receive a second yellow card, only a red. (And for what it's worth, I'm not a moderator).

Counter point: Does a bolder line need to be drawn between what is vs. not a sport? One thought: If it 'feels' like a sport, and there's not a more appropriate SE site to ask it on, why not ask it here? Any list of 'official sports' is going to suffer the same ambiguity we're talking about here.
