What in the world makes you think that not only cricket but test cricket is luck based? In the history of test cricket there have been only a handful of upsets that are down to luck. The nature of the game is such that even the best lucky streak is averaged out pretty quickly. If a guy is swinging and hoping the most he can last for is 6-10 balls. Which is nothing in the grand scheme.

I focused on football because it was more fun. There was no luck when I was blocking a gap and keeping the back from getting a single inch. That was hard work

>>62644165
That's skill

but then there are also streaky players that become memes (Lin, Moe Williams, dragic, etc.) because they hit a lucky streak. Consistency is what takes skill but the overall game is heavily luck dependent. That's why you have #1 teams lose to absolute shit teams regularly and why hey have best of 7 series; because luck plays a factor.

Theres also a huge mental aspect. Like throwing not throwing out pitches at righties if youre a rightie, or when to pitch for contact, sometimes you want to throw it not as hard to throw off their timing, etc.

Arm speed is one of those things thats next to impossible to teach, you either have it or you dont. The "hard" part is location

Not him but physicality =/= stamina
>>
>>62661644

The game itself isn't as physically demanding as the others in my list. If you see, Gridiron is in the bottom half. However, the athletes themselves go through a physical conditioning and training that results in more athletically dominating players.

>>62661677

America, land of the free, home ot the athletes.
>>
>>62661731
Rugby and soccer are endurance based while gridiron is based on explosive plays. You don't have as much playing time but you have to crank your performance up to eleven each play.

For retards, it's like comparing marathon to a 100 meter sprint. Two different things.

Football has the most diverse skillsets and position specialization so you can't really compare the sport to anything else unless you do it by position.

Kicker / punter = it's in the name, their only job is to kick the ball

QB = the most or second most cerebral position (reading defenses), needs great hand-eye coordination and muscle memory, also good footwork

Linemen = fat, strong fucks. OL play is very similar to sumo wrestling but with more brains involved because of pre snap reads and adjustments / recognizing coverage and pass rush patterns.

LBs and RBs are probably the most similar to rugby players

etc.

You can't really compare it to say, soccer, where every position is more or less the same shit aside from the goalkeeper.

I was a goalie in hockey. Its kind of luck in the sense that once I got to be like 16 the puck was moving so quick a lot of time if you tried to react to it after its been shot youd miss it. But it was all educated guesses based off of reading angles, body position, the position of the puck on his stick, etc, you move yourself in a spot best suited to hopefully make the save. But youre still kind of guessing alot if times youd see the puck for like 5-10ft and have to know where it was going to end up by then and then by the time your brain actualy registers the shot its in your glove or off your pad or something

Almost right except for fucking wrong.

I think its hilarious that there are people who unironically think that basketball is hard compared to football. Have you ever tried to properly play a ball with your foot? To properly dribble fast a couple opponents? Doing shit with your foot WHILE MOVING is a million times harder than doing stuff with your hands.

It blows my mind that there are people on this board who unironically believe that basketball is harder than the shit than for example Messi pulls on a weekly basis.

Might just be me but I dont see what this has to do with skill.

It depends on your style of play.

Federer is at the top of the skill chart, Maradona too.
Tennis player that only know how to serve have no skill and players like Roy Keane are only hard workers...
