hey wildmutt, my sager is comin in friday i cant wait, what you majoring in and all that stuff? year, etc..
i dont know about strength being any more in football either, i had to lug around so much weight in pads and stuff and was prety damn fast. plus i could leg press like 900lbs when i was in shape (i wish i could do that now lol) Most of our players were just as strong as football players (and our football team won state almost every year, we wernet slouches)
as for skill, you need to be more versatile in hockey, but football takes alot more repetition. I think football players probably get beat up more in a game then hockey players, but they dont hit harder. and nobody even talk to me about getting hit, i had people shooting a hard peice of rubber at me at 80-90 mph, pads or not that can hurt....and especially when it finds those spots between pads, its like getting hit with a hammer. My skates have been broken, a puck got stuck to my skate once, that was cool....my helmet is cracked, the cage had to be rewelded a few times, and this is all highschool hockey, not even college
yeah im not here to start a flamewar either, but its fun to compare hehe
talk to yas soon
