Football contains athletes so superior they need to wear immense amounts of protective gear.
This is why Rugby players can't cut it playing Football. This is why Soccer players make for nifty little field goal kickers..
Thank GOD(S) for the NFL or we'd be stuck watching skinny guys kick a ball around for an hour hoping that just once it went into the net.
Wut. I played football in high school, and we had several guys play rugby. If anything, Rugby turned them into the most ferocious hitters on the squad.
Soccer (or Football, for you international folk) is insanely popular worldwide bro. It also requires an incredible amount of endurance. You ever run against a soccer player? They can run forever... only Basketball players can keep up.
I say Basketball because it requires an uncanny amount of running, jumping and sprinting. That really takes a toll on you legs to go for rebounds and go on fastbreaks, or rush back on defense. Basketball and soccer players can actually strive in many sports; just because they don't tackle, doesn't mean they're weak. Not everybody has a 40 inch vertical. sh*t, I only have a 28 inch. ._.
Fantastic point, and well made.
