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

Actually soccer players would be better 400 runners at best. There was just a piece of research out yesterday that showed at the World Cup how often play is stopped.

Care to guess?

Every 58 seconds they stop play and stand around. They could not be distance runners and take a break every 58 seconds.

It's not as simple as that. The game typically restarts very quickly in soccer.
