    I know Wikipedia isn't the source of Everything but it can give a noob some information.

    I don't agree total football is about 1 superb player. Feyenoord won the European and World title playing total football in 1970. They didn't have a superstar, they had 4 or 5 superb players.
    When Ajax won those titles in the 90's they had good players but not 1 superstar.
    Ajax was so good because they were well disciplined. Not because they had the best athletes.

    Long distance runners are way more athletic then soccer players. Those runners spend a lot of time on core stability. I think a good core is the base of an athletic body.

    That's correct to a degree, but without Cruyff all that collapses. As far as Feyenoord goes, the concept of total football was still relatively new back then and the opposing teems needed some times to adapt. Total football can very easily be countered by teams that play strong defensively and are physically tough and try to make their opponents fall into that trap when they bring the game to a stalemate. For countering rigorous defensive and physically powerful teams, you need players like Maradona, Ronaldo(Brazilian), Cruyff etc., and those are also very few and far between. Even Barcelona's total football was crushed by Chelsea and Inter almost completely just by physical dominance.

    I'm just saying, football is as much a physical game as it is technical. Fatigue makes cowards out of men and if your opponent is better conditioned, in the last 10-15 minutes of the game your legs can get very heavy and they can shift the momentum.

    It's a different type of athlete.
    Soccer has many sprints during the game, and ball disputes, constantly changing directions while running, a lot of physical contact - this taxes a lot the body if you're not used. Plus the balance and coordination you need to have to control, pass and kick the ball while running.

    Most major team players are amazing athletes, but of course they're specialized in soccer.

    Put a long distance runner in tbe field, and the dude will be all sore in the next day due to the intensity.

    You can see amazingly skilled guys playing on these "freestyle" tournaments that wouldn't never come close to a soccer team since they lack the necessary athleticism (and tactical mind) to play.

    I have not read the posts in this thread but i can tell you the reason. ''soccer'' players are usually gay and crying actors that rolls around 3 times on the grass from a toe to the shin. Real sports is to extreme for them

    In the last UFC event in Mexico City, we have non other then Ronaldo (Brazilian Legend)... I believe that he had also attended to Brazil events to support Anderson.

    Are you talking about American league players? not sure about that, but a lot of European footballers have attended the UK events.

    I'm sure if those big events were in Europe you would notice it more, Messi or Ronaldo aren't going to fly to see an event on a Saturday when most of the times they have games on Saturdays.

    Ronaldo was probably at some.

    He has (or had) a sports marketing company (9INE) and used to handle the contracts of Anderson, maybe Cigano too.

    Usually in Brazil is mostly TV actors at events.
