    In terms of toughness most people would agree of the three major sports leagues in America, Major League Baseball is the weakest. They cancel games if the field is wet.

    Since professional basketball (NBA) is an indoors thing, it takes something major to have one of those games canceled.

    And in the National Football League they play through anything short of thunder and lightning.

    But in Chile they play through earthquakes. Yes, you read that right, earthquakes.

    Soccer gets a bad rep in America cause when we're all 8-9 year olds, it's the unpopular kids who end up playing soccer.

    It's always the lady killers that play soccer in my area. It's like... lacrosse. You on the team, you automatically begin banging 9s.


    Anyway... Until I see any of those other sports have near the horrific injuries I witness in soccer, I can't say they're any tougher.

    MLB and NBA are not better than the NFL. That's not even an opinion. It's a fact. NFL is infinite times better than both.

    I didn't read it. I just saw the title and posted.

    I don't have time to read through every thread. Just had to share how I feel about non-NFL leagues.

    Let me know when anyone dies from soccer...other than the boredom of watching it that is.
