Hockey is a better sport than soccer
Debate Rounds (3)
1.) Speed- Some people say that soccer players are the fastest players on earth, but even though the fastest can run up to 20 mph, the average hockey player can skate above 28 mph. http://www.exploratorium.edu...
2.) Goal- In soccer, there is a goal that is 24X8 feet, and a small goalie blocking it, when in hockey, the goal is 6X4 feet, and a huge goalie in pads and blockers, yet the average score in both of the sports are the same, proving soccer players can't score on a goal that is over twice the size as a hockey goal. This shows how hockey players are a lot more accurate with their shots than soccer players.
3.) Contact- Let me get started with hockey first: It is legal to truck people, as hard as you can, and there is no penalty called. If you hit someone in soccer, the refs will be on you with their colorful little cards. http://www.nhl.com...
4.) Toughness- Hockey players and soccer players differ a huge amount in this category. Soccer players and their fans think they are so tough. In reality, they will be running, trip, and act like it's a career ending injury, when they get back up "ready" for the next play. The players never really sacrifice themselves in opposing shots. Hockey players on the other hand, rather try to stay in the game after getting a major injury. They are also trained to inflict pain, and block 100 mph slapshots.
5.) Speed- Everything in hockey has more speed than soccer; player speed, reaction time, shot time; everything is faster in hockey. As stated in the 1st category, hockey players skate over 10 mph than soccer players run. Hockey players are dealing with closer players skating 30 mph. When hockey slap shots are flying over 100 mph, soccer shots are just over 60 mph. Skaters make play faster than the grass ferries. https://en.wikipedia.org...
Soccer players make the game boring, with not much physical contact allowed, slower shots and speed, crappy acting skills and fake injuries, and colorful cards. Hockey players make the game a fast paced game, many checks and hits, toughness, and faster everything. They might as well send soccer players to the WWE in boxes that say "caution, fragile".

more fans cheaper warmer athletes are better soccer lasts 90 mins, hockey is only 60 mins soccer players play for 45mins straight, hockey dudes need a break after 45 seconds
soccer players are more tough...no padding(just shin guards..and i've played with concusions)
no sticks World Cup of Soccer is way better than the World Championships of Hocky
soccer players have more character soccer players have lives during the off season its "full" body contact
you can play soccer anywhere as long as you have a ball and so what if our net is bigger(i'm a goalie)..the gaol keeper is so much smaller than the net...so the gk must work harder to defend it in hockey..with all the padding..the goal keeper is the size of the net...that makes it easier on him/her
