Soccer is a lot more jogging than basketball. You can't even deny that. In basketball, every player has to get set on both ends of the floor. After rebounds, everyone sprints to try to beat their man. Soccer has moments like this, but not constantly all game. More than half the time for a defender or attacker is spent jogging around watching the ball on the other end of the field.

Hahaha holy shit, he just claimed that soccer was less jogging than basketball
>>
In American sports, especially for the QB position, skill is more important than stamina or physical ability. All of the men in the NFL are the most skilled football players in the world. Certain potions like the QB are more skilled based so it's not unusual for the players to maintain longer careers.

Meanwhile in Yurop, their only sport is based around aimlessly jogging around a pitch for 90 minutes while pretending to be injured. Zero skill is required which is why are the players are tiny manlets that lack any semblance of pride which is why they are okay pretending to fall down all the time.

it's a 48 minute game. Done replying to you now m8.

so with your thought process it isn't a sport unless you are practically doing cross country/running 7 miles in your "match/game"

Lol ok. That's your retarded opinion. Doesn't change the fact the best athletes in the world play basketball. Not soccer. No 5'7 manlet is a top level athlete. yes soccer takes skill with your feet, but those little shits aren't playing anything BUT soccer. basketball players could play every fucking sport there is. they just decide to play basketball. Take matt barnes for one. average ass basketball player, but was all american at wide out in high school. could have went to literally any college inthe US. probably would have made the nfl with his size too. 6'8 wide out is going to stomp ass.

Both of you are right. GK and QB don't require a ton of physical ability compared to say midfielders or forwards and cornerbacks/wide receivers.

This thread in itself is stupid because manning didn't even do anything. It was the Denver defense that won them that game. It also goes for the Americans posting 40 year old soccer players that played like 5 games the year they won and using that as an argument as well.

Basketball players only run 2.5-3.5km per game, 4km tops. That's why you can play 5 consecutive games in a week.

Football players nowadays run 9-14km per game depending on age, position and weather, and lose 3-5kg per match.

There's really no comparisson in the amount of skills required. Soccer is a lot more skilled. Just look at women soccer players. They look borderline retarded playing it because it is so hard. They don't look that pathetic playing other easier sports though.

Petty stopped being good when NASCAR changed the rules in 1971 so that there would be 30 official races per season. Before that, any race on a NASCAR-sanctioned track counted even if it was amateur dirt tracks. Then in his later career, they started more stringently making it a requirement that all cars be equal.

not even trolling but can you please explain the literal obsession with american sports fans and the idea that a good athlete should be 600 lbs of bulging muscle that look like the Hulk?

Literally only in american football is that advantageous, it literally detracts from your ability in nearly every other sport.
