Two very physical sports for sure, but much different impact angles and impact points.
But the impact of a football hit is like 7x harder according to any testing done.
There’s a difference in stopping and cutting on a dime on grass versus cleats. Also there’s a different effect the pounding of running takes on the back versus skates.
two combat sports, but completely different combat sports, IMO.
is this true?
I believe it is true I heard something similar before... There is a reason hockey players can play 2 to 3 games in a week and 82 games a year...football players wouldn’t even survive it... Football is a far more brutal and physically demanding sport.
that makes a ton of sense factoring in the massive gulf in amount of games between sports.
I think Isaac Newton would roll in his grave at this assertion.
The only study I recall was at my Alma Mater Cornell and hockey hits we judged to be 17% harder than football.
I would guess that's true because they're moving at higher speeds in hockey. But football has contact every play and many times multiple hits. Therefore, football is harder on the body.
Back to Farley, tackling is not the #1 thing I want out of my CB. Give me a guy who can cover and take out the other teams #1 WR everyday over a guy who is a better tackler. That's why I always thought the "Patrick Peterson can't tackle" arguments were ridiculous.
Can't tackle or won't tackle?
More brutal in the trenches, but not more physically demanding for the specialists of the game: W/O, DB's.
A number of studies have been done and evaluated using the following criteria: Hockey always comes out ahead of Football.
ENDURANCE: The ability to continue to perform a skill or action for long periods of time.
STRENGTH: The ability to produce force.
POWER: The ability to produce strength in the shortest possible time.
SPEED: The ability to move quickly.
AGILITY: The ability to change direction quickly.
FLEXIBILITY: The ability to stretch the joints across a large range of motion.
NERVE: The ability to overcome fear.
DURABILITY: The ability to withstand physical punishment over a long period of time.
HAND-EYE COORDINATION: The ability to react quickly to sensory perception.
ANALYTIC APTITUDE: The ability to evaluate and react appropriately to strategic situations.
Football is the most intense anaerobic sport that involves quick bursts of energy and is performed at maximum effort for a short time. Hockey is a combination of aerobic (endurance) with anaerobic features.
Both a great tests and can be equally loved!
True, when it comes to the trenches but not all over the field.
And, yes, I agree regarding Farley.
There was a sports science episode on it. It's on youtube.
Andy Bernard? Is it you?
The cleats vs skates is a big reason.
Cleates give a lot less than skates.
