Football vs. Hockey

By Kelly Bridgewater

Hockey Playoffs for the 23-24 Season is about to start. 

GO AVS!!!!!!

I believe, and have said for several years, that Hockey is way tougher of a sport than football.

Football players play 17 games in a season if they make it to the Superbowl.

Hockey players play 82 games plus 16 – 28 games depending on the how the playoffs work out.

Football players finish in early February and start training in early August. 8 months off.

Hockey players finish in mid- June and start training in late August. 2 and a half months off.

Football players may have head concussions.

Hockey players break everything and keep playing.

Football is always on second down or something that takes FOREVER to move across the field.

Hockey is a fast-paced sport that the game is constantly moving from one end to the other end, hoping to score on the other team’s goalie.

Football teams have 11 players on the field at one time.

Hockey has 5 players with a goalie, so a total of 6 players on the ice at once, unless they are in a power play which means less players on the ice. 

In football, if a player plays the whole game, they have clocked anywhere from 12 – 17 minutes of play time.

In hockey, if a player plays the whole game, they have clocked anywhere from 22 – 28 minutes of play time.

What about you? Have you ever watched ice hockey? These players, in my opinion, are tougher than football players every time of the year.
