Football players are undoubtedly tougher than soccer players. Football players tackle each other every game, slam into each other, pile on top of each other, and is the sport most prone to injuries and concussions. Soccer players are tough for running endurance, but football players run hundreds of yards a game, just not as much as a soccer player. In all, football players are tougher than soccer players. Soccer is tougher because you don't wear protection from head to toe like in football. Where in soccer you tackle,kick,shoot and all that stuff without protection.
Becaus soccer is a more mobile game. With more kicks, the ball can move further and faster across the field, forcing the players to move more to be in on the action.
Football players run more then baseball players.When football players score they get 6/7points.Baseball players get only 1/2/3/4points.
Football is more popular than soccer and basketball, because you can do anything: catch, hit, kick, push, run, throw, and more.(Football isn't more popular than soccer. Soccer is the most popular team sport in the world :D)

To begin with the balls are entirely different. A soccer ball is a sphere while a football is an ellipsoid. There are very few pauses in soccer. Soccer players wear little protective equipment compared to football players. There are no wholesale substitutions from offense to defense and back in soccer as there are in football. Points are scored one at a time in soccer. Many more countries play soccer than play football. There is much less equipment in soccer. soccer has 11 players on the field, no time outs (except for quarters or halves), & just laws of the game. the biggest difference is advantage play on law. In soccer you can't touch the ball but in football you can. Soccer players are very agile, quick, and very well conditioned since they must play long periods with no rest. Football players tend to be much more powerful and larger since they are playing a game based on sheer power. They are also well conditioned athletes but their conditioning is oriented toward a different outcome. In soccer you can't use your hands and it is 90 minutes plus extra time, while football you can use your feet and hands and it is 4 15 minute quarters and an overtime period if necessary Although in England the name for soccer is football. Soccer you play only with youre feet. You can not touch the ball while you play. You can not run into people and hurt them any way. Hwo scores the most is winner.
Soccer players because they have to run more and put more effort into what they are doing. FOOTBALL SUCKS!!!------------------While obviously soccer players run for longer distances and for a longer period of time, that is not all there is to athleticism. Football involves speed, knowledge, running, throwing, catching, tackling, kicking, blocking, block shredding, and a whole mental game that goes a long with it. Soccer players have better cardio, in general better speed, kicking power, kicking precision, defending the net, and dribbling with the ball. None of that really relates to be athletic besides the running aspect. Yes, putting the top 25 fastest soccer players in a distance/speed race against the top 25 fastest football players, the soccer players win majority of the time. But in no way can you say soccer players are more athletic. Faster, yes. Athletic, no.The person above me is clearly a biased soccer fan.With that being said, gymnasts and MMA fighters are the best athletes, hands down.----------------------Well if you guys knew how to play soccer and what is to it then you would know how hard it is. In foot ball you do have to be strong and bulky to play the sport but you only need that energy for a little amount of time. So the team does a fail play and then they take a three minute brake and then start off another five second play following a five minute brake. Soccer on the other constant running, not stoping, one 10 minute brake after 45 minutes of playing. Also soccer players have to be incredibly fast and have to have amazing upper body strength, but anybody reading this would say no because they never scene or played real soccer before. So I think soccer players have to be more athletic and are.
Well, some say its for scoring goals but that would be too simple. The true function of a football is to distract players while they run aimlessly round a pitch for 90 minutes
The soccer ball. Rugby originated when, in a game of soccer William Webb-Ellis picked up the football and started to run with it, players chased him and the crowd loved it and so it started. Thank you William.
Soccer Players. The field is much larger, and endurance is a much larger factor in soccer. Soccer games are also MUCH longer than basketball games, no matter what level you're playing in. Also, there are only 3 substitutions allowed the whole soccer match as opposed to unlimited in basketball. Basketball players run an average of 5 miles per game while soccer players run 7 miles per game.
as a football player myself i workout everyday, go to school and hang friends after practice. but during practice i run, run through plays, and run some more, practice tackling, and running more.
Because there dumb asses
You can wear soccer cleats to play american football but it is less than ideal. Soccer cleats do not have a stud on the toe of the cleat like football cleats do. This make it much easier to run, cut and dig into the grass. Most football cleats are also higher and more supportive than soccer cleats. Although if you are a field goal kicker/ punter or kicker in American Football - they all wear soccer cleats. Basically you CAN wear soccer cleats to play American football but you CAN NOT wear American Football cleats to play Soccer.
I really think that Rugby union is more dangerous sports ever than Soccer. In this game you just defence players and run away towards the goal post.

Players who wind up in the NFL have usually played football since they were young children. They play in pee wee leagues, junior leagues, junior high school, high school, and college. Many current players and former players run football camps, usually during the summer, where young men can go to learn more about playing football.
Football cleats are specifically designed for football. They are larger, especially around the ankle, which gives the wearer more support on the football field. They also have a center stud which is illegal in soccer. Soccer cleats are slimmer and designed for optimum performance on the field. The size and weight of the shoe makes it possible for the player to run faster and longer, unlike football there are no timeouts. The shape of a soccer cleat helps to provide a good touch on the ball.
Football in England is run by the Football Association. Rugby is known as Rugby Football. To distinguish between the two people called football Association Football. The word 'association' was eventually shortened to 'soccer' by the general public.
