    Which sport has more "contact"

    Back around september I got in an argument with my football coach about hockey having more physical contact then football. I stated hockey DID have more contact.

    My argument :
    These guys are slap shotting pucks at about 80-100mph, tell me it wont hurt if you get hit
    How fast are they skating? 10mph? It's not gonna hurt when you get smacked against the boards by someone with alot more momentum?
    refs let you fight
    checking & hip checking

    I've only played football...

    I picked hockey, although I feel Football is a more agressive game. Does that make sense?

    I think football because the lines are always in contact during the plays. But it depends on your position.

    Well, the best way to tell would be perhaps do a ratio of injuries (serious) that were caused to the number of players total. I'm not sure what it is, I think that there is more overall physical contat in the NFL, but the NHL has lots... and football doesnt really just let fights go down every game, but it is encouraged in hockey. So I think the NFL has more injuries, and more serious injuries, but damn... hockey players sure do their part in losing teeth.

    absolutely football.

    when you're on the ice in hockey, you're making "contact" w/opponents maybe 10% of the time.

    when you're on the field in football, you're either hitting, or getting hit.

    YEah, right about now hockey isn't having too much contact.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    I agree with Flex....On every play 10 guys on the lines touch, the WR and DB jam each other and the running backs usually make a block or get tackled by the safety or linebacker.....thats like 25 instances of contact on one play. Hockey, you may get 25 checks a game, and another 50 bumps and brushes throughout. Hockey may be a bit more physical, but Football is def filled with more contact.

    I agree.

    How many injuries are there in hockey compared to football?

    I rest my case.

    How could this even be debated? Football. Just watch the game. Contact is the name of the game in football. Theres allot of contact on every play. Thats not even close to being the case with hockey.

    You spend ALL our time in a football game getting up from, lining up to, or actually delivering "contact" ... the hit. They're both tough games not for the easily bruised or fragile of bone. Doesn't matter how ya slice it football is nothing but line up, hit, get up, rinse and repeat.

    NOT ONE single player comes out od a game without having been knocked on his ass once or four times ... hockey?

    I don't know, call me an idiot if you will.

    i've never played hockey, but in football i'm usually a linebacker or defensive end, yes I make alot of contact..

    but i've watched many a games NHL & NFL.. I just think NHL has more contact.

    What im saying is that its impossible to think that. Do yo actually WATCH the game? Explain yourself, that doesnt even make sense. Someone in football litereally gets tackled and taken to the ground on every play, while everyone around him is either blocking someone or getting knocked on there ass. In hockey,what?, 1 hit every 2 minutes or so?
