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.
