Which sport is tougher on the body: hockey or soccer?Page 17 of 20    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)
My knowledge of soccer is probably more than Kirk's as well. What I don't like about soccer comes down to 2 things. 1 not enough scoring or chances for that matter and2. penalty kicks deciding a game. After playing for 90 minutes as a team and then having penalty kicks where the goal keeper has to guess and hope for the best which way to dive. You might as well toss a coin to decide the winner and that in my opinion is no way to decide a game.

Sorry Kirk I made a mistake when I was posting. I meant to say that my knowledge of soccer was more than your knowledge of North American sports. I admit that my knowledge of soccer is limited, but not as limited to your knowledge of North American sports. That's what I meant to say, again I'm sorry I realize that your knowledge of soccer is way more than mine.

Kirk, I can appreciate low scoring games when both teams play well. A no-hitter in baseball is much more exciting than a 1-0 soccer game because a no-hitter is something that only happens very occasionally ( the Toronto Blue Jays have only had 1 in fanchise history 31 years). A 1-0 soccer game is the norm and because of that it's not appreciated. An analogy would be the summer season would not be appreciated if it was hot all year round, you need the cold winter to appreciate it.. I agree that usually a 1-0 game is because of good defense, but many of those games also have few chances or shots on net which can become frustrating to watch.

I played soccer for 17 years so I can only comment on that.

There is no line shifts of course and depending the league will let you make a certain number of subs, other wise you are in the game for 90 minutes. You must have strong legs and endurance to be able to play soccer.

I've known people who say soccer is such an easy sport yet when they get on the field for people who have playing it for a long time they then look like fools, can't kick, pass and chase around the other guys who embarrass them.

Midfield of course has the most running, playing both foward and up.

Soccer may be tougher since like I said, they are out there much longer while hockey has shifts giving their players breaks

I agree football is tougher.

Imagine having a 300 lb lineman pound on you week after week. Ouch!

Pedro I don't know how many times this has been explained to you, but you still can't seem to grasp it. You continue to say that the only reason NFL is higher scoring than soccer is because in soccer 1 goal counts for 1 point or 2 goals count for 2 points. Please listen to this with unbiased opinions. In the NFL when the score is 35 - 28 (which is a typical NFL final score), in your terms that would be 5-4. A touchdown is worth 7 points, 35 divided by 7 = 5 and 28 divided by 7 = 4 , so the score is 5-4. SIMPLE! So we'll use your point system and the score is 5-4. How many soccer games have a final of 5-4? The games I see are usually 1-0 and 1-1, a high scoring game is 2-1, crazy. So the NFL has higher scoring NOT because they count a touchdown worth more points, but because there is actually MORE SCORING. Do you get it now. I'm not trying to be mean, but it can be annoying that you continue to say that there is as much scoring in soccer, but that the point system is the only difference. I hope that this has finally convinced you.

hi halasteve, I can't say that I've watched alot of international games, but have watched every Toronto FC game. game1 they lost 2-0 to Columbus, game2 they lost 4-1 to DC United, game 3 they won 3-2 to LA, game 4 they lost1-0 t0 Salt Lake, game 5 won 2-0 to Kansas City, game 6 tied 1-1 to New York, game7 tied 0-0, game 8 tied 0-0 to Columbus, game 9 won 1-0 to DC United, game10 won 3-2 to DC United, and game10 won2-0 to LA. Most of these games are low scoring. The winning team scored 18 goals in 10 games avg 1.8 the losing team scored 7 goals avg 0.7. The avg after 10 games was 1.8 to 0.7, I'll round it up to 2-1. My point is that soccer is too low scoring. Many of the goals are after 90min and the teams are awarded penalty kicks, which isn't really scoring. It's kicking and hoping for the best. The Toronto FC are 5-3-2 I will continue to watch and support them. I still have a problem with people telling me that soccer isn't low scoring.

HOCKEY.....at least I don't think soccer has unmoveable boards that 220 lb men moving at 25+ hours an hour are ramming other men into! Of course, soccer players slip on the grass....

As I was walking down a busy street the other day I tripped over the foot of the person walking just beside me. As I fell to the ground in slight discomfort from the pain of falling down I noticed 6 others also on the ground rolling in seemingly obvious pain from also tripping in a similar fashion. Just then a whamo ball came rolling out from the local playground and a soccer game(not sport) broke out. Then a traffic cop came over and handed a player a ticket for headbutting another player for calling his mother "a cheap piece of Euro trash".(apparantly she was from Great Britain)
Well they played and frolicked for several hours but no one could put that damn whamo ball through the makeshift goals that were as wide as city streets so, growing tired of this the whole neighborhood pitched in and in a riotous fun filled afternoon the tore the city apart.

I had fun writing it.
Soccer players are obviously highly skilled athletes in great shape but in no way do they go through the punishment that a hockey player experiences most nights.

Most athletes don't go through the punishment of a 82 game + pre season+ post seaon NHL games.....

And no athlete gets hurt as bad in a game and yet insists on and Does Return to continue the game....NO Athlete, Period!

Just have an all in brawl on ice.
If thats all you ice heads want and are proud about.


Fights on the ice certainly beats riots in the stands and surrounding area during and after a soccer match. But thats all you Hooligans are interested in.

It flys both ways.

Actually Kirk I loved playing soccer as a kid and I coached it for three years.
It is a pure sport that has been weakend by the flopping of todays players.

Basically it's popularity is connected to the ability for everyone to play it. Anyone can afford it and anyone can run and kick a ball.
Thats it's secret ...it's readily accessable and affordable to the masses.

Also depends what position you play. While soccer is not a contact sport like hockey is. You need to be in tip top shape to play a position like mid field, running up and down the field...people think it's easy till they get into a game and have to run around. There are no line shifts at all and only 3 sub allowed.

And also depending what leagues you play in. Soccer players play in more games. Just look at the WC, that's 4 years of playing right there trying to get a spot, it's non stop.

Both are hard, hockey is hard on the body from taking hits, guys going out with concussions while the constant running in soccer puts pressure on your legs and injuries can be bad in it also.

There is a lot of standing around and walking or jogging in soccer.
Only 2 or 3 are running hard at any onetime.
Both sports require a high level of fitness.

I have played only soccer, so no idea which is tougher on the body, but can tell you if you get a kick on your knees which happens almost all the time that' s not fun. I used to have more injuries while playing soccer than when I switched into restling, actually I don't even remember having any injury in durin wrestling and do remember up to this point the constant aching on the knees from soccer.

DOES ANYONE KNOW A PLACE IN LOS ANGELES, ORANGE COUNTY AREA WHEN YOU CAN GO PLAY SOCCER WITH ADULTS? NOT WITH THE KIDS I MEAN OR TEENAGERS OR YOUNGSTERS, THEY PLAY EVERYWHERE I NOTICED IN THE PARKS ETC, I WANT TO FIND A PLACE YOU KNOW TO GET THERE AND PLAY.

Soccer is not a sport. Because:

1) You can't use your arms.

2) There are DOTS on the BALL. Anything with DOTS on the BALL can't be a sport.

Hey George, how many cups of bears you had while writing this nonsense. Some people have sex without using their arms, according to your logic one can't have sex unless he/she masturbates at the same time too.

I am trying to have a "picking on exchange" here to entertain the public but not successful yet. The other dude - Scott from Atlanta didn't respond neither. It's just a matter of time until I will find a dude to have some "spectacle" here . However, George is not out of the game at all, may be he doesnt do online breaks at his work. ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

Ok, George, are you gonna defend your theory? May be there was something else there public didn't perceive the way you meant to outline..................
