Oh Jeff... DO not compare Soccer athletes with Baseball atheles, you will lose...
it's Maradona at his best... Golden years I mean... And Ronaldo, averaging 15 minutes for his home town team...

Damn, Baseball and Soccer are different sports. People like different things. Just funny how Jeff thinks Baseball is sport, while auto racing is not haha

As I said, I am not Soccer fan, but yeah, Soccer is THE BEST definition of SPORT. That REEEEAL sport, not ''mind sport'' like chess or darts. Every single Soccer player must be in perfect shape and must use his body resources. He must be skilled, ripped and ready to run his ass 90 minutes non stop.

Great athletes or not soccer still sucks balls imo.

Who's really comparing athletes here. This all started with people here saying soccer sucks and is boring as shit and it ruffled your feathers. I said it earlier soccer players are great athletes, but their sport bores the shit out of me, i wasn't raised on it or influenced to like it and i will never like it. Sorry if that irks you somehow but shit happens.

A sport is an individual or team competing for entertainment. Car racing falls into that category.

No irks... irks... nice word, first time i hear it.
I dont like it too. I think Soccer players are the best athletes, they run so fast, kick and throw that ball so far, it's hard to believe.
But the game is very slow and not entertaining.




Some people thinks car racing is not a sport, but just because they have no clue how hard it is. I already mentioned that.

What is sport? Sport is competitive, skillful activity. SO, chess is sport. It calls "mind sport".
And now, The REAL sport, Basketball, Footballs... athletics, and so on. Atheles who using their bodies. They must be strong and skilled. Racers fits it. Believe me, body shape and strength in Auto sport is much more important than people think. More important than in Baseball or even Basketball. I actually believe, Soccer players, runners and F1 pilots are the greatest athelets. Every kilogram, heart beat matters. And dont forget it's life-threatening.

A lot of things are hard, doesn't make one an athlete because they're good at something hard. Do you consider astronaut's that fly into space a sport? Now that's some fuckin' G force baby. lol

Astronaut's thing and Formula racing is kinda same thing. They even using similar simulators.

Flying into space is not a sport, because it's not competitive activity...

Auto racing is. Thats why it calls "Auto sport" lol...


Damn, you know what sport is lol? You think Auto racers do not use any muscles? This is not a sport?
:
*F1 racers lose 2-4 kilograms (5-10 punds) in 90 minutes
*Highest dehydration possibility in all sports
*All the year, the drivers are on special diets, even drinks special water
*Drivers must keep exact, planned perfect weight.
*F drivers must have strong neck muscles. Like powerlifter must have strong bicepts.
*Because of G force, everything in F1 car becomes 4 times heavier.
*F1 racers heart rate rise 198 beats per minute. It's almost the same rate as marathon runner's rate who just finished 42 kilometres run.
*Drivers must have perfect mental health and learn to stay calm at crucial, dangerous moments.
Also requires strong vision, wrists, arm muscles.

I'd have to say that hockey, on ice would be the hardest sport to learn from scratch. Almost hopeless for a couple of years, really. For soccer, if you are able to run, you have a shot to get going. As for F1, used to be a fan. some drivers were better than others, but it was about the car for the most part, just like horse racing is about the horse.

When they finally put me in charge, I am going to come up with a new definition for sport. If it includes confrontation, it is sport, if it does not, it's going to have another term like competetition. I suppose soccer is included in sport, LOL. But you have got to move away from the acid test for great sport being how many people play.

It is about given a wide range of choices and means, which would people choose. For example, a lot of people drive Honda Civics. It is within their means, but given a ton of cash, people are looking at Range Rovers, Escalades, Ferrari's, Porsches etc.

And no reason to get all sensitive. The whole board is just about opinion, so no one is being personal. Don't forget that we are on a basketball board and people will tell you to your face that basketball sucks and it is just a bunch of freaks with no skill jumping and dropping a ball in a basket.

People dont like what they dont understand. It really is that simple. Each person/culture/country has their own taste on whats entertaining. Theres no sport thats better than the rest and whoever states something of that kind and tries to put down any particular one is a dumb ignorant fuck. Who for some reason, are always the same people in this forum.

I've played a lot of sports, and I would say that golf is one of the hardest to get good at. Hockey I found farely easy to get the hang of, for me at least. Everyone is different with coordination and everyone has specific skills if athletically inclined at all. I think all sports have their difficulties to learn and it all depends on the individual and their strengths as to wether or not they learn quickly for any particular sport. So to say one sport is harder to learn depends on the person learning it. Another thing I find is that when I was growing up I played sports 5 nights a week outside with friends, on top of organized sports, sports at school. It was constant, and you don't see that nearly as much now. A lot less ball hockey is being played, a lot less box ball being played, a lot less pick up football being played. The more sports you get into the more adaptable you are and the quicker you can pick up any sport.

They played the other day. 1 - 3. What was the name of the stadium, Kaunas?
I usually dont like when players complain about the pit but this time it was crazy. They were playing on sand basically. Pretty dangerous for this players that cost insane amounts of money to their clubs.
