Add Tennis and Badminton to the most energy sapping sports list. But I would put soccer at the top of this list.

They run like 15 miles a game(esp the wingers and full backs). They are fantastic....

But when i played football and watched it on the tv i began to appreciate it.


US only plays the games others don't play.. I don't know..They have this COMPLEX kinda thing...
You know, what name they give to the team which wins Superbowl/MLB/NBA ?

WORLD CHAMPIONS....ROFL...


Coming to Soccer, they think it's a chick's/Kid's game. Soccer is the MOOSST popular game among the school kids here.
but when they start entering into High School/College, FOOTBALL comes into picture..;)

I agree that basketball does consume a lot of energy but I wouldn't put it on the same level as soccer/football. The players don't have a big court to run back and forth on like they do in soccer/football. The soccer/football field is quite large when compare to a basketball court therefore the players have a lot more to cover.

In reality, all sports consume a lot of energy but I would rank soccer/football over the others because of the field, the amount of time they play, and the lack of timeouts.

We Americans tend to play sports that we think we can win at and that no one can beat us. This is why a lot of folks are surprised, shocked and upset about how the US basketball team is playing. They didn't win the gold medal at the Olympics and they can't even win the World Championship.

Note: I keep saying soccer/football because we call it soccer while the rest of the world calls is football.

Argh I get so worn out playing basketball so I haven't for a long time :P
American football is sort of like rugby, I suppose. Rugby is brutal. I consider a lot more brutal than A. Football. Does America have a rugby team?
Cricket is less popular, even in England it was losing major popularity until last year when the team managed to win something and everyone went cricketing-mad, because that is the way.

I'm not sure about England/Wales rivalry. There is usually always England/any-other-country-in-Britain rivalry so you're probably right! We "hate" Argentina as well as Germany too, but Beckham beat them with a penalty so its ok :P :P "no hands no hands"

I wish America was more interested in football, because it really is a fantastic sport. That's why I think if they get Klinsmann coaching them, it will generate a lot more interest and they might start winning stuff.

Actually we were, twice. The last time was this summer and the player said he wants to remain at Juventus.


I honest to god can't remember that... I thought most of the talk to come out of juve's relegation was of camorenasi (spelling??)

i remember Bayern wanted Mutu before he transfered to Chelsea, not this summer


This summer as well, trust me. At least the rumour existed, and then Mutu directly said that he does not wish to transfer to Bayern but instead wants to remain at Juve and help them get promoted back.

No, America doesn’t have a Rugby team. Do Rugby players have gear besides a helmet? If they don’t then they’re made of much tougher stuff than American football players. Our guys are decked out with shoulder pads. Basketball is very energy consuming, especially if you play small or power forward.

Rugby players don't wear much protection. They are lightning fast when compared to the american football players....
So, no comparision between the both...rugby wins hands down.

And what was the reason? To help Florentina come back into Serie A instead of Juve...LOL? (I guess initially they were demoted too).

not really investment their problem is that they dont have any ambition, the players have big wages and they dont care about winning something big (cups,...) , look at last year UEFA Cup Rapid eliminated Hertha and Hamburg, and their budget is about 7mil euros.... (soon Romanian league will have more teams in European Competitons then Germany :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: )

Yeah they don't wear anything 'cept knee pads and mouth guards... I don't watch much, but believe it or not it's a nicer sport than football. Fans nicer to each other lol. It's not as big as football and players don't get paid half as much but it's still a widely-followed sport. My local city Hull has a few good teams ^^

BERLIN, March 29 (Reuters) - A German civil servant has lost his job after helping cover up a speeding violation by soccer great Franz Beckenbauer, authorities said on Thursday.

A court in Munich rejected an appeal by the man to be re-instated as a senior traffic inspector. He and two officials in the local traffic police hatched a plan to allow Beckenbauer to avoid a one-month driving ban for speeding.

When Bayern Munich club president Beckenbauer was filmed driving around 40 km/h (25 mph) over the limit in the Bavarian capital in 2005, the trio attempted to pass his car off as an unmarked vehicle being used by traffic police. A city official uncovered the ruse when she recognised the speeding "policeman" behind the wheel as Beckenbauer, who would have faced a one-month ban if convicted.

"They were trying to stop a case being brought against Beckenbauer," said a spokesman for the court.

The two traffic police were subsequently fired. The senior inspector said he had been misled by one of the other men, but the court rejected the appeal and said the man was not fit to continue his job.

A spokesman for Munich city authorities said Beckenbauer, a World Cup winner as a coach and a player, would not face prosecution for the speeding offence because the statute of limitations now covered the incident.
