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.
No ****ing way is baseball tougher than soccer. Soccer should be towards the top.
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.
distance running is 40... It should be top 5
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.
Have you played baseball before?
Soccer honestly has too much flopping to be consider "tough".
You really think soccer players would stand a chance against athletes like in the NBA, NHL, and NFL?
look, running is my life... don't dis-respect it please
