    I have never heard athleticism defined as that. I studied physical education until university. Thanks for trying to play.

    Soccer is more popular because even the biggest shithole country can afford a soccer ball, not so much for football. The best athletes in the world play
    football. To argue otherwise makes you look flagrantly biased.

    pretty ignorant

    the top athletes from almost every country play soccer, the top athletes from 1 country play american football
    therefore soccer is going to have a lot of extremely athletic people

    The thing is im yet to see a qb, wr, rb play both sides of the field defence and offence for 2 40 min spurts.

    Theres guys sitting at 260 lbs in rugby playing under this sort of fatigue as we speak.in league the offence have 5 downs and then a punt which can be finished in under a minute 30..an nfl drive with timeouts and huddles can exceed 10 minutes easily and after the 4th down offences can go and sit down for a breather while defence takes overs.

    Neither rugby union or rugby league are afforded this oppurtunity.

    Dude. We've all seen rugby and soccer...those guys take "breathers" too. Just because there is no "stop in action" somewhere on the field doesn't mean they are running or exerting themselves the entire time lol. As to your opinion that a QB, wr etc playing full clip...most of these guys were multisport athletes since they were kids. Many of them played for multiple sports teams while in college. You might be surprised to find how many college/NFL level football players were running up and down the basketball court, for example, in the off-season of football. Not slagging off rugby players, that shit is awesome and intense. But you're fucking nuts if you look at some of these guys in the NFL and go "Ok, that's a different level".

    "Most" and "top" are not the same thing though. There are a hell of a lot more people playing soccer than rugby in England for example, but no way in hell is the national soccer team more athletic than the national rugby team overall.

    No they weren't, it's bullshit. Farm animals and pets get at least a litter a year that just needs another year to get sexually mature, they were also bred over thousands of years. Slavery just didn't last nearly long enough and owners didn't have actual reproductive control. Also, once again, why would they want "NFL athletic freaks" to do field labor? It's the opposite of what is needed.

    Soccer is more about cardio than athleticism though. Soccer players are not physical specimens that can do the physical things football and
    Basketball ball players can. Basketball is a more global than the NFL and produces a better level athlete.

    You have no idea what you are talking about.
    Its horses for courses.
    Soccer players can’t do what NFL players do and vice versa.

    Its like arguing who is better between Phelps and Bolt.
    Totally different application of athletic ability.

    They do need to be pretty fast and coordinated, but yeah, they lack in the size/strength department. An NFL cornerback, running back or wide receiver still has elite speed by soccer standards, but is also carrying a good 20+lbs more mass and is considerably stronger than the typical soccer speedster. NBA players have comparable speed, cardio and coordination to soccer players while being 6'7 etc.etc.
