RE: Soccer players would be the best distance runners, and NFL players would be the best sprinters

0/10, and that's including considering my setting-you-straight reply.

Have you ever seen the "football 4x1" relay race at a D1 track meet? They get smoked! Every. Time. Zero contest against pure sprinters. Not. Even. Close.

For football, players have to be fast--as in, "not slow"--and be able to take a hit. Multiple hits, actually. That bulk needed for protection is a curse on the track.

I'd be surprised if your average football 4x1 " team" could keep up with the best female 4x1 teams in college.

I'll wait patiently for your list of high-profile soccer players turned world beaters in distance running. Try to not come up with great runners who happen to have kicked a soccer ball once in their lives.

And before you slobber at the mouth as you type, "but Galen Rupp...", he wasn't a high-profile soccer player.


Dude, you totally misconstrued everything. SMH

I'm talking about against other athletes in contact sports. not them going up against track and field athletes.

football players would be the best sprinters and soccer players would be the best distance runners.
