    Great point.

    You will notice when America fails miserably at soccer ( a worldwide global sport and the olmypics, a worldwide global athletics competition) you hear excuses like, oh we don't care about those sports!

    Right, sure you don't, you don't care about the most popular athletic events, even though you claim to be the no.1 superpower in the world? That makes no sense.

    Football players receive long balls tougher than that every game.
    That’s really nothing special

    It's number one because it's the cheapest to play and has the lowest barrier to entry athleticism wise

    It’s usually the combination of ones ability to run, jump, strength, and move with agility, and explosiveness. You’re not typically going to find many bigger freaks than some NFL players that do all of those things well. None of that is to say that the other sports don’t have great athletes that have adapted to their abilities to their own sport.

    Also let’s be honest, these threads are typically thinly vailed nationality based trolling.

    Skillset is different than athleticism.

    Sprinters are the best then. It's the most explosive event ain't it?

    THAT gif is your example of coordination?
    Any goalkeeper that fails to catch that ball is automatically considered trash in football (soccer for you).

    It's definitely up there, but speed/strength/size would be how I'd qualify athleticism. NFL or NBA probably has the athletes with the best ratio of those three on average though Usain Bolt has the size and speed part down, don't know how strong he is though.

    I'd understand where you are coming from if the guy just hit the ball with his hand but he caught the ball one handed while bending damn near horizontal and having a helmet that blocks out some vision. All while being grabbed on by the defender and remain in bounds.
    I've played both sports and heading a soccer ball is much easier than a one hand catch in football.

    Please stop with facts and logic, because these yanks will happily compare NFL players who basically sprint for a living, to Tyron woodley in that clip of him sprinting with an NFL player (hes a wrestler/power puncher with shit cardio) but yet they would never compared NFL players to the sprinters of the world, because then they would look D level.. see how this works? People insert their biases in to fit their equation.

    Yeah, a soccer ball with two hands, not a football with one hand thrown in the air while falling back.

    That’s possibly the most debatable thing said in this entire thread.

    Plenty of NFL players are comparable to sprinters in straight line speed while being bigger and stronger.

    They have endurance, they can probably run 5-6 minute miles, but no they don't run 5ks or half marathons
