How do I remove (or hid) unwanted bloatware apps?

How do I remove the following applications?  I have never used them and they are cluttering up the applications menu.

AllShare (Don't have a DLNA complitant system)

AmazonMP3 (Doubletwist works well with my MP3 library)

Asphalt5 demo (I use my car for fun driving)

Facebook

Media Hub (Rather a bit expensive don't you think?)

Nascar (Again I use my car for fun!)

Qik

SprintFootball

SprintHotspot (I didn't buy the expensive plan.)

SprintTV

SprintZone

Even if you can't "delete them" is there a way to remove the icon launcher from the list?

And yes I do know about alternative ways to do this but would rather not root anything just yet.

Sprint??

This is the one I used:

http://forum.sdx-developers.com/tester-board/sdx-stock-app-removal-testers-needed/

until I flashed the Epic experience and Phoenix kernel to have better battery life. Plus I needed to fix the other few things like the stupid 3G icon showing when you are really in 1X area.  False advertisement, eh Sprint?

You cannot remove/uninstall or even hide Sprint pre-installed apps without rooting your phone.

You can "hide" them by dragging the icon to the trash bin . . won't uninstall them or keep them from running, but won't appear on homepage . . .
