I agree completely with this. At the level of even semi-pro, the athletes involved have to be genuine virtuosos, and in the Majors, we are talking, truly, the cream of the cream. And it bores the **** out of those who aren't familiar with what is going on on the field. There can be few things more exciting than watching a pitcher pitch a perfect game, a game in which there might be one or two hits by his team, no hits by the other, and one run decides the outcome. It would be incomprehensible to the un-initiate.

I played basketball, but really, televised basketball bores me to tears. They run up and down the floor for about an hour, somebody screws up and one side wins. Occasionally (not often) the game ends with a supremely skilled play by one team or the other, or an astounding example of dumb luck. Basketball should be played, not watched.

Ours "work" only before the game and at half time.

Same with the girls of Boca Juniors, in Argentina:

I went to a game once in San Francisco, because the Giants were playing the Astros. A friend and I were so busy talking and drinking beer, I didn't realize it when Willie Mays hit his home run. He was stepping on home plate by the time I took notice. I gues you could say, I am not a true fan of the game.

U.S. Football is played in cold weather.

World Football is played in hot weather.

@wandeljw,
Ezxcellent, Theses are the kinds of technical inputs that we seek. I need to evaluate several more versions of the cheerleader dichotomy.

I would enjoy seeing several US cheerleaders demonstrate their regalia in more temperate football weather. Also, you dont have to show all the Pompoms, as these are probably the same the world over.

I thank you.

Baseball highlights can bring joy but one would have to be brain dead to sit thru two hours of sheer boredom for a few seconds of excitement.

@JTT,
As I wrote before:

"The key is to know the strategy. If you understand the strategy, you enjoy the game; if you don't, you don't".
So I suppose you understand the basics, but not the strategy of baseball.

The main difference: people with zero hand-eye coordination and no meaningful musculature can play soccer.

@gungasnake,
That's really insolent. Because you're using a ligament without any opposable thumbs or even any movable appendages it requires a lot more control to keep the ball and make it go where you want it to. It requires an insane amount to be able to make sure other people don't take it. So while you don't need hand-eye coordination, that's because you have to play while not even looking at the ball, and then it requires an incredible amount of dexterity, precision, and control to make it do what you want it to. Also, despite popular belief, quite a lot of pushing goes on in soccer, and while it's not as valuable as it is in Football, it's definitely helpful.

@Sentience,
Gunga is our own personal little "Aryan Brotherhood" member. He says otherwise but he is about as culturally a white supremacist as Ive ever heard.

FOOT ball would involve using the feet to move the ball I would have thought.

Aussie Rules rules.

Horseracing and cricket are the world's best sports. But appreciation of them requires considerable concentration. Anybody who puts in the effort will learn to appreciate all top level games.

The quickest way to get the concentration required is to bet on it. Avid fans of one team are blinded.

If there's big money involved the principles of natural selection will cause the best in the world to come to the fore under the environmental conditions of the rules of the game.

The rules of the game are also subject to evolutionary principles in terms of providing a spectacle people freely choose to pay to watch.

Anybody who expresses a dislike for any particular sport/s is self-evidently not a scientific evolutionist.

But there are many other factors.

Football is an English (meaning from England) term for a game that doesn't involve putting on pads or helmets. Futbol is not an English word, rather it is a a phonetic spelling of the English word for people who speak romance languages.

David Beckham plays football (not futbol).

To get back to the opening post on body size... Futball is all about running for 45 minutes non-stop. That requires a slimmer body with lots of endurance. Football is about going all out for 7-15 seconds and resting for a minute or two. That requires people that protect the ball carrier to be large and powerful. You'll notice that size varies by position. Wide receivers tend to be built more like futball players as they sprint 30-40 yards quite often. Linemen are huge so they can use their mass to get the ball carrier or protect him.

@McGentrix,
Hey ... and one other observation. Futbol-style kickers revolutionized the 'real' football sport. Without the soccer-style kick and kicker, we wouldn't have had the funniest play in football history with Miami Dolphin's Garo Yepremian's muffed attempt at a forward pass after a muffed kick.

BTW, I never understood this: what the hell's wrong with the sport being called soccer? Is it offensive for some reason?
