Cross Country is far more demanding, as it's a long trail of activity, where American Football is just short bursts of energy compared to it.

Cross country probably requires more specific body control, or at least that's what I hear.

I did but it won't stop popping up in the first few questions. It keeps acting like a priority question.

I went to a Cross Country meet on Saturday and at least 9 people got taken away in ambulances. I've seen lots of football games but I've never seen that many people get taken away in one game.

this is about guts and hardwork, not how physical you get with men. I actually had a discussion about with with a good friend of mine who plays football, i run cross country. I admit that football may be scarier but it takes a hell of a lot more hardwork and trust me the pain from running far excedes whatever a tackle gives. And when you get tackled you get a nice break between then and the next play, cross country you just have to keep running.

I happen to have participated in a season of both. I can say that Cross Country was definately harder to improve at, and so it took more hard work. But guts? Neither of them really took 'guts'. I would say in football it would be scary to get hit at first, but it's really not. And it doesn't hurt that bad unless you get hit REALLY hard. And even if you do get hit REALLY hard, it still doesn't hurt as much as running does sometimes. Either way, it shoudl be mentioned that no matter how much guts and hard work either football or cross country takes, soccer is still superior.

What kinds of problems? Craps?

We have had a season like that, too. It seems like these high School kids are not in very good shape...

No most of the problems resulted from the runners willing to die to get a good time. Basically they got to the finish line and just collapsed. I guess you would call that a lack of oxygen?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 7:36:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would call it out of shape, but same difference. I'm sorry, there is no reason for 9 track stars to go to the hospital, I don't care what you run.

Cross country.

I disagree the athletes, especially the ones at this meet were exceptional. They were the best of the best from NY and so there is no way they were out of shape. I think you would have been shocked by how fast these people ran. I saw 5 minute miles for a 5K by some people. The girls ran faster than I thought was possible for girls to run. To say there is no reason for 9 Cross Country runners to goto the hospital I suggest you run 5 minute miles for 3.1 miles.

I have to disagree, in my opinion, if 9 people from any sporting event get ER visits, something is wrong...
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 10:32:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
But if it's a competitive event...when you run, really, you run until you just can't anymore.

you're right, at that point something is wrong, it begins to take more guts.

Cross country is more challanging
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:37:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
9 is alot of people but remember big Cross Country meets usually have like 200 people running. Also if there were a sport were I would expect to see 9 people goto the ER b/c they had extreme cramps or had trouble breathing, it would be cross country.

Sounds like the chess team picnic after one of them accidentally disturbed a hornets' nest.

Right a-hole, you run a 5K at 16 minutes and tell me how you feel.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 11:40:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Even though I can't play football too save my life, I doubt that it's anywhere near as strenuous than running for miles.

If you had trained properly, you SHOULD feel fine.

High School kids where doing it all the time without ER visits just a few years ago. What is their excuse now?

It's about always pushing harder in competition, and if done correctly you should end up in the hospital. Seriously, you can't say that means it's less tough that football, I could just reverse that and say:
"If you had trained properly, you SHOULDN'T get railed by a 300 lb linebacker.

How many high school xc means did you go to a few years ago?

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 11:50:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Seriously though, you make the worst arguments.

You claim that if one does his sport correctly, he SHOULD end up in the Hospital, you think I'M the one with the bad arguments?

The simple fact is this, Healthy, fit, trained athletes shouldn't need an ambulance every time they are finished with a game. Why does this concept elude you? A healthy, fit, trained athlete should be able to preform his task without going to the ER every game.

Everybody gets an ER trip eventually, if they send a good amount of time in sport, but after ever run, because "you pushed yourself to hard"? You SHOULD be pushing yourself in practice, so we don't have to worry about it when game day comes.

On the rugby/football thing.

There's definitely more contact in football. I think the padding is excessive, but there's definitely need for something.

I think rugby players are better all around athletes, as every player needs to run, tackle, kick and so on. It's definitely a tactical game. You can't just run and hope for the best.

But I agree with whoever said football is more like a game of chess.

You shouldn't necessarily end up in the hospital, the point is to push yourself WAY out of your comfort zone. You shouldn't feel "fine" when you finish a race, you should feel like you're going to vomit and pass out at the same time.

"The simple fact is this, Healthy, fit, trained athletes shouldn't need an ambulance every time they are finished with a game. Why does this concept elude you? A healthy, fit, trained athlete should be able to preform his task without going to the ER every game."

Yes, but the whole point of being a good athlete is ALWAYS IMPROVING, and at meets and competition is when you need to make sure you push your hardest, you TRAIN to push your hardest, not to run with a smile on your face the whole time.

I had respect for you at some point...
