[quote name='"samjaay"']Football (soccer) players are mild compared to most other athletes. Most players moan about playing two games in the space of four days, and their matches are 90 minutes. Tennis players during competitions play up to 5 hours a day for up to two weeks. That's fitness. I love football (soccer) and always will, but I wouldn't call them athletes.[/quote] I would guess you don't know what athlete means.
