    Typical sherdoggers don't even see what the experts think...just start arguing amongst themselves and thinking everyone else is stupid for their opinion.

    ESPN did a study on this very subject with a panel of experts. they gave each sport scores on the different aspects of athleticism (agility, power, etc). All weighted equally. The results were:
    1. boxing
    2. hockey
    3. football
    4. basketball
    5. wrestling
    6. martial arts
    7. tennis
    8. gymnastics
    9. baseball
    10. soccer

    LOL I'd fucking clock that Steph Curry though, a level my ass. 100%

    Why would anyone believe that biased BS?

    How convenient that the sport USA is fucking horrible and the absolute worst at, is 10th on that list. Get the fuck out of here :D

    I've heard many athletes say, that wrestling is the toughest sport to train.

    Rugby?

    Lol, this sherdog, is full retard.
    Footballers kill the ball dead and some even catch an balance it on their foot after a 50yard pass.
    This is all foot to foot.
    Don't believe the hype, football is way more technical an skilled than American football.
    Both are entertaining though.
    And to think, this isn't even as skillful as killing a 50yd pass dead whilst eyeing up the next move or catching it on your chest for a laugh.
    What a beautiful goal, made better by being vs Liverpool.
    Lol
    Wow, just wow.
    Not gonna lie, this fully made me laugh out, I even screen shotted it to show a mate.
    Ye, watch vids of him in his prime before illness, alcohol and addiction to fast food got a hold - the guy was amazing.
    When you look at footballs top leagues, it's fitness levels are insane... The fact that you can only pull up one player and he has an illness, addiction, retired And is commonly known as 'the fat ronaldo' says it all.
    Milner, Rooney and Balotelli are regarded as footballers who've got by despite being out of shape, now compare them with those fat fucks in the nfl.
    Lol
    The levels in football are unreal, on a singular basis I would say boxing, swimming and athletics... Maybe even gymnastics has the highest level of athleticism but on a general level of percentage to competitors within professional competition, I'd say soccer is up there.
    Nfl immediately loses any role in the debate cos of those afore mentioned fat fucks.
    See above.
    Yes you retard, cos he got the disease and addiction AFTER he dominated....
    You trolling or just dumb as the last turd I laid?

    Bias is almost impossible to get rid of. It is a confounding variable in all academic research and people spend their whole LIVES coming up with techniques to counterbalance bias'.

    That being said, I will take a panel of experts over a bunch of uneducated sherbros anytime--or my own uneducated opinions. But it is up to you who you want to believe. ;)

    Many football players play other sports and vice versa. LeBron and Allen Iverson were also great football player, as are many cross sport athletes in America. Julius Peppers played basketball at North Carolina, one of the most elite college basketball programs.
    OP using child like logic to draw and broadcast idiotic conclusions about athleticism.

    This is true. NFL players are jacked up on steroids and tackle eachother into brain damage in 10 second sprints. Also nobody in the world outside the USA gives a shit about the NFL. People in Western Europe don't even know what NFL is. Football(not handegg) is the most popular and most athleticism required sport in the world by far. To be a NFL athlete you have to beat a few million americans competing against you. To be a top Football player you have to beat billions of people around the globe.

    Actually the competition in the NFL might even be lower than I thought. The age range of males wanting to enter the NFL is like 18-20(probably I have no idea.). Like 80% of your population is obese. Only men play in the NFL. Only a certain % of men even tries to join the handegg team in school. I bet the competition to enter the NFL is less than a million 18-20 year old males. That's nothing.

    Football, is most countries in the world national sport. Even in a country like Germany you are competing against at least 10 million other males because almost every young guy joins a football team.

    That test was about as objective and scientific as that ridiculous Sports Science show. Hockey and boxing over rugby for strength. "Speed" treated as though it means the same thing regardless of whether its running, ice skating or cycling. One of the sports being called "martial arts" whatever the fuck thats supposed to mean etc etc.

    A lot of posters don’t understand explosive raw athleticism vs skill based athleticism

    Football has the most explosive athletes (sprint, jump, strength)

    Soccer and basketball have more skill (body control, technique, cardio)

    Is it coincidence that the top 5 are all espn televised sports?
    This topic brings up a much bigger and more interesting topic where we begin to question if Americans are so similar to North Koreans where they believe so much shit put in front of them and are so poorly travelled that they think everything American is better than anywhere else, Americans are physically and mentally superior and that their country is so much nicer, cleaner, richer and better than anywhere else.
    But hey, that's a big topic for another day.

    I think you are putting words in my mouth friend. But thanks for grouping all us 'YANKS' together.

    The point is to say that Greg Hardy is not an A level athlete just because of cardio is ridiculous. It is part of it, but so I quickness, explosiveness, strength, agility, vertical jump, etc...

    They all play a factor. MMA fighters are A level athletes, so are pro American football players, international football players, hockey players, tennis players. The point is there are many factors that contribute to athleticism.
    Football tends to be a sport built around explosiveness and strength. So 10 seconds of all out work are part of the sport.

    It seems people outside the US have a serious misunderstanding of Football (not soccer)
    - There are different positions in football. Not everyone is a huge fat big guy.
    In America our children play soccer at 3-5 years old so they can run around, kick a ball, learn team sports, and eat orange slices after the game.

    Then we join real sports.

    Give me a prime Ray Lewis, LT, or Reggie White over any Futboller that ever lived.

    Most of those "fat fucks" run sub 5 40s and move agile as fuck.

    1/ Soccer - eye hand coordination not a pre-requisite

    So it's hardly a complete athlete in any sense of the word
    The top soccer players are usually short, manlets under 5 ft 10, under 140 lbs because a lower center of gravity helps with better ball control (dribbling)

    So soccer automatically de-selects big AND tall people over 210 lbs....
    There's nothing for them (that pays well) in any sport in Europe

    Plus what good is being only good at kicking a damn ball FFS?

    Doesn't translate into any other sport

    What other sports can they do? Jockey?
    What other sports are they good at?


    A good athlete is good at OTHER SPORTS

    What OTHER sports is midget Messi, narrow Ronaldo, manlet Neymar good at? LOL
    All under 170 lbs soaking wet. LOL
    That's a preteen weight. LOL

    Jockey?
    Video games ain't a sport. LMAO
