## Hockey is boss.

Hockey is so much better. For one, soccer is so slow. There is no action. If you score one goal in soccer, its a high scoring game. In hockey games can go to nine points .They are always moving. Its so fun to watch. You can really get into it, until soccer, which is just waiting for something to happen.

## Good sport and tough players

Hockey players are tough soccer players are baby's. I am just a kid though but whenever I bring something about soccer to one of my friends at school he keeps on telling that soccer is the best sport in the world. Me and my younger brother, That does diving, Sometimes would watch and laugh at soccer videos of soccer players pretending that there are hurt

## Hockey is better

Why hockey is better than soccer

There are a few reasons why I think hockey is better than soccer 80% of the time the ball is going out of bounds and then you must throw it back into bounds. Unlike soccer in hockey there are boards and glass to keep the puck in bounds. Because if there were no boards the puck would be going out all the time but luckily, They fix that problem a long time ago. Also, Hockey is a way faster sport most of the time hockey players are going 20-30 mph depends on the player. According to physicist Thomas Humphrey, "skating is the fastest way to travel on the surface of the earth on your feet. " And a soccer players top speed is 20mph depends on the player. The fastest shot in hockey is 118. 3 mph it was set by Bobby Hull! And a max of a soccer ball is 80-85## Many inspirational Stories

May I just say before I do this that I'm doing this for a debate. In Ice Hockey, There are many inspirational stories such as the Russian Five. In the time of the cold war older players defected (left) Russia but one young player by the name of Sergei Fedorov also defected, And joined the Detroit Red Wings (in my eyes possibly one of the greatest hockey teams in the world) other players joined suit such as Igor Larionov, Viacheslav Fetisov, Vladmir Konstantinov and Vyacheslav Kozlov. These four with Fedorov became the Russian Five. They silenced crowds all over North America and treated the Detroit Red Wings to a Stanley Cup TWICE! Even today some of the best players are Russian such as Ovechkin, Pietrangelo and many more. No other sport has ever done something like that. This makes Hockey unique and, In my eyes, Better than soccer

## Isn't it obvious?

Let's put the two in perspective. One is slow paced, Low scoring, And is filled with actors that pretend they are athletes. The other is fast paced, Filled with action, And the players take hits from 180-200 pound people flying at them at 20 mph. One has hundreds and hundreds of touches per team that lead to maybe 2 goals, While the other has much less that lead to pretty much any number. One has like 5 shots on goal a game while the other has 30 plus on average. One has a goalie that wears a different shirt than the rest of the team and gloves while the other is a freaking juggernaut that has to stop this little piece of frozen rubber from getting behind them while it is moving 90 mph. For those who complain about hockey's short shifts, I say this. . . In a game where you can stand around for 20 min at a time while your team has the ball, You will last much longer than those who push 110% their entire shift. Soccer is physically demanding, But hockey is even more demanding. Yes, Soccer players have better foot eye coordination, But hockey players have better hand eye plus a good bit of foot eye as well to kick a puck to their stick when a pass is in their skates. To those who say hockey is just North American, I say this. LOOK AT HOW MANY FREAKING SWEDES ARE IN THE NHL. Hockey spans across Europe just like soccer, But Hockey has all of Mother Russia as well. Hockey like soccer, Can be played by pretty much anyone, As their are so many variations of hockey. From the ice to the dek to the street to a field, As long as an area is flat, Like soccer, It can be played there. Wrapping up, Fights are part of hockey, As well as the crowd taunting the other goalie and so much more, But it shows how the team and the fans stick up for their one another. Hockey players get teeth knocked out, Play with broken hands and fingers, Take shots to the ankles (which have minimal padding) and finish their shift before thinking about getting checked for injuries. Soccer players get touched on the arm and act like Hulk wound up and punched them full strength. To all soccer fans who read this and get mad, Drop your bias and look at the facts. If you don't want your sport to get made fun of, Fix it. Tell your players to stop flopping on the ground with what they make look like a broken leg only to return to the game remarkably (said with sarcasm) 5 minutes later. Tell your leagues to shrink the field or take away players or just to find a fix to the sport. I end with a well known quote. "Soccer players pretend to be hurt, Hockey player pretend they aren't hurt. "

## Hockey is the best

Soccer players embellish too much. Also it’s messy to watch and boring and slow. The rest of the world doesn’t understand hockey, it’s finesse is something only few can appreciate. In the ice cold winter it’s hockey that lights you up. Soccer is for people too slow in the head, hockey is too fast for their slow brain.

## It is better

I like hockey because you actually do something and in soccer you stand and wait for the ball. In hockey you can skate fast because of the blades and ice in soccer it is just your foot and the ground. Hockey is more intense because you are digging for the puck and at least one fight a game and in soccer there are really no fights.

## It is more interesting.

Not only is hockey a faster paced sport, but it also requires more skill. Hockey players need to be physically capable of constantly chasing the puck and keeping track of their surroundings. Not only that, hockey games are more important than baseball games because there are more games in a season of baseball than there are hockey.

Posted by: LogicalPen## Soccer Players are babies

When you get hit with the soccer ball they fall to the ground and act like their dying, and end up with nothing wrong with them. In hockey you only lie down if you need medical treatment (Stitches, stretcher). F hockey was easy everyone would play it, but everyone doesn't they play soccer

## Shut your dumbass up

You must be sl0w if you think hockey is better than soccer retards you must be sl0w if you think hockey is better than soccer retards you must be sl0w if you think hockey is better than soccer retards you must be sl0w if you think hockey is better than soccer retards

## Hockey players are so lazy

Soccer players aren't so lazy and soccer players have more fans. Just read this headline: World Cup 2018: Mexico fans cause EARTHQUAKE as they celebrated shock win over Germany... WELL? Still, don't believe me? Ask 80% of the world or any website and all hockey players do is fight, doesn't have any beauty or finesse you just whack a puck with a stick

Posted by: raedingotchu## Soccer is so much better

Soccer is about pace, skill, insurance, and lots other things. Its a race to see who can score first. Hockey doesn't involve that much fitness cause your constantly getting a sub, wherein soccer your limited to 3. You will never see a fat pro soccer player because you're constantly running.

## Harder to play soccer

In soccer there are 90 mins and 1 break and barely any substitutions while in hockey it's 3 breaks and 60 mins and there is the stupid cycle thing you need to be more physical in soccer to have the energy to stay 90 minutes running and trying hard and being the best player on the pitch

## Biggest Sport in the world!

Thousands of famous sport players have a least given soccer a go, countries all over the world play it.

Huge amounts of skill and eye/foot coordination are involved in soccer, you aren't just hitting it with a stick. So fitness it a must to score a goal because our pitches are twice the size## Many reasons but most important is the fans

The atmosphere at the Nou Camp or Wembley Stadium is something incomparable to any hockey rink. Hockey is a brutal sport for thugs where there is no discipline. Disgusting fights are encouraged and referees are not given proper respect or authority. Goals are so often that they lose meaning and the boring single chant repeated over and over pales in comparison to the memorable songs and passion soccer fans show.
