    im happy to see baskteball is 4th....its alot tougher then most people who dont play think it is. The constant change of pace and the physical play in the paint...its a tough sport unless your a soft finesse player who only shoots jumpshots like channing frye

    I disagree with the ranking. Its a measurement of athleticism in a sport, and not which is the hardest to do or become good at. It leaves all skill sports down the list even when they are much harder to become good at and to play.

    This isnt a toughest sport in the world, this is a toughest sport in the USA. Where is Australian Rules Football? Where is Rugby League? pfft.
    Every person that comes from overseas says we r crazy to play those sports without padding. AFL and Rugby are way harder then American Football.
    I agree Boxing is the hardest though.

    Have you played baseball? Getting into the MLB is harder than getting into any premier league.

    This is a measurement of skill and athleticism. Hand eye coordination is a SKILL.
    If you have the ability to do anything automatically, its usually considered a skill.

    I would agree with this ranking 100%.

    Pricey, this is a ranking based on all sports

    Boxing >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> UFC.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OO, why?




    Distance running is a sport for people who aren't good at the elite sports, mostly anyone can make an average D-1 distance track team in college just as a walk-on.

    Actually I could, being on a walk on isn't hard at all, you could be as whack as you and still make it. Its not really that tough of a sport.

    The subject is toughness which requires physical strength which Baseball doesn't require as much of as Football or Boxing...but Baseball is the hardest in skill being that you can choose to hit a baseball in 1/10 of a second and adjust your swing if it's a curveball or a fastball and manage to hit it when it could be going 98 MPH or a curveball going 80 MPH with movement.

    if this is correct Metro then ESPN r fking lame as. Honestly baseball is laughable when saying its harder to play then soccer.
    Boxing is obviously the hardest sport to play, crazy stuff.
    Australia Rules has to be top 5 if not top 3 toughest sports in the world to play. the odds of staying in the AFL more then 3 years is so high its not funny. i would take AFL being tougher then the NFL and NBA hands down every time. in AFL u get fking crunched with no protection every minute and u have to be able to kick that ball 50 metres hitting people on the chest and then most players run 20km per game while taking these hits. its crazy. Every person that comes to Australia and watches a game says we r crazy and that its tougher then any major American sport.
