I don't see how that's any difference from offense to defense change? It's all substitution.

Here this is pretty freaking grueling and demanding.

145 miles in 45 hours.

Purely stamina. Where's the strength, co-ordination, agility?

Here is a 3100 mile race. You have 51 days to complete it, which means you have to run 60+ miles EVERY DAY. That is absolutely insane.

How aften is the player moving? Is he moving top speed at all times while ball is in play? There is alot of stationary in soccer, more movment near the vacinity of the ball.

Its gotta be boxing or MMA and other sports aren't that close. You can't take a play off in boxing. Trying to hit without getting hit for 36 minutes, fighting in blood and sweat, etc. Just the most demanding sport overall

There are no "plays" in boxing, and boxers do take rounds off to rest. You will see them go into defensive mode in some rounds, and be very aggressive in other rounds.

I have to imagine being a starting RB or a WR that goes across the middle CONSISTENTLY is one of the most physically demanding positions in a professional sport.

Just think about a NG that has to hit a 300+ lb DT all game long and then hustle down field for a no huddle play when a WR catches a long pass.

I would bet that any NFL running back could bear the physical aspect of being a midfielder....how many midfielders could take the rigors of getting hit by lineman and linebackers for 48 minutes?
