"I'm damned if I'll accept that sort of label just because my preferences differ from the majority."
Who asked you to?
You're labelling yourself, nobody said you were one of those people, just because you don't want to watch. I referred to people who moan about a waste of money, and constantly find something to complain about. I certainly made no mention of people who simply preferred not to watch the opening ceremony, or who don't like sport.
Don't go looking for offence when it isn't there.
