To be serious, when you compare American football and baseball, the players spend more time sitting around and having stopages or setting up new plays . I doubt any of them could run for 90 minutes like in a European football match. Baseball is probably the laziest sport ever created.
to be serious, you clearly don't know anything about the conditioning of pro athletes in the US.
just because they don't train to sprint for 90 minutes at a time doesn't mean they're lazy.
one has nothing to do with the other.
European football is a completely different type of sport with completely different definitions of success than baseball and gridiron.
Baseball is meh to a lot of Americans.
no it's not.
if you look at the numbers, baseball and football are the 2 most popular sports in the US.
why do you think baseball is the ONLY sport referred to as "America's Pastime" ??
explosive power and brute strength for about 5-10 seconds at a time is valued above endurance and intelligence
that's not true either.
it simply depends on the position.
the linemen rely on brute strength and power, but they only account for 1/3 of the team. and even those guys have to memorize huge playbooks (hundreds of pages) and understand enough strategy about the game in order to know the best position to be in before the play develops. to be successful at the pro level you have to anticipate, not just react.
most of the rest of the team relies on finesse and intelligence.
I implore you to learn more about the game before attempting to make fun of it again
