Generally, endurance horse-back riding and Formula 1 are not high-school or college sports.

Specifically, almost any healthy adult-human can pick 5 contestable skills in which no other human on earth can sweep them.

You didn't restrict it to high school or college sports, you wrote:

Are you now saying that they're allowed to want to play only high school and college sports?

Even if we accept your restriction, I'd be very surprised to find many high school or college baseball, football, or basketball players who would give even a marginally decent showing at diving, swimming, or water polo, all of which are generally high school and college sports, without specific training and practice in those sports.

Agree. Though for example, recently there were a couple NFL players that tried to put ice skates on (Larry Fitzgerald being one) and grabbed a stick to try hockey. Well, let's just say Larry wasn't even able to use his stick with a puck because he couldn't stand long enough. Now, you take an NHL player and put pads on him to play football, he will be able to at least compete. I understand this first hand as I played football since I was 9 until I was 20 years old (2 years at a Div. III school) and now I have been an assistant coach for 2 youth ice hockey teams for 3 years and I can confidently say that Ice hockey is much harder to play than football. Not even close.

Put the best hockey player in the world, or the fastest, or the strongest and put him in an NFL game and he'll probably never compete in any sport ever again. Or eat solid food.
And I'm Canadian.

This is merely a thought-experiment addendum. Even you Danny, have five skills that no one on earth could sweep.
They may be obscure and non-formal competitions, but true nevertheless. Even card-tricks, speed-walking and MASH trivia would drop your remaining competition down to the thousands.


Pretty sure we're all on the same page with respect to specialization dominating pro-sports (and pretty much everything).

Guess you never heard of Dustin Byfuglien? Look him up and you will see that he easily can play in the NFL whereas NO NFL player would be able to play in the NHL.

Danny, you can't see past your own points either. Simply comparing TWO sports, Hockey and Football, that's it. Hockey players would be able to compete at football with no practice necessary whereas a football player would not be able to immediately compete in hockey. Not hard to understand that statement.

Jalen Ramsey from the Jaguars said he could make the NHL after 6 months of training. Then Jalen visits the Predators and doesn't even get on the ice, just synthetic ice, to shoot pucks. At the end of the video, Jalen re-issues his statement that he probably can't make the NHL after 6 months of training, lol.

It is not hard to understand the statement. That does not make it correct.

I'm sorry this is just ludicrous. You are now making the claim that ANY hockey player can compete in NFL football with no practice necessary? Seriously you just wrote that. It is like talking to a 4 year old with superhero worship. So at his prime Wayne Gretzky could have played half back or guard for the Super Bowl Championship team that year? Or he could have played defensive back or linebacker? Do you read what you claim before you post it?

Hockey players can not even switch positions all that effectively within their own sport much less automatically play in the NFL. Why do you think they have specific positions in the first place? I get it. For whatever reason you have hockey player idol worship. It is obvious. (May want to get it looked into because it seems as if it has dampened your critical thinking skills.)

So if a hockey player can play in the NFL without practice, why has the NFL not gone and recruited all the amazing hockey players to play football? They can save lots of money on practice and such simply by using such a superior athlete! The statement is just crazy!

Do you want to revise your obviously way overstated position? Can a hockey player hit a fastball with a .300 average? If so then he is taking a heck of a beating for no reason.

So one guy can't do it. That in no way backs up your ridiculous statements about any NHL player being in the NFL with NO PRACTICE.

NFL Linemen are just giant slabs of meat. Any slab'll do.

Great athlete. Good nhler. Would get annihilated in the NFL.

Incorrect. They are incredible athletes. The best of the best. Young, huge, and fast.
If you arent also nfl worthy like an nhl player, or roger federer, or Shaquille o'neal, they will hurt you. Badly.

Yea if you don't understand the game you believe they are slabs of meat. If you don't understand hockey you think they are figure skaters. Lack of knowledge speaks volumes. At least Mr. Salk is attempting to be humorous. Failing miserably as usual, but attempting anyhow so he gets full credit for that.

I agree. Lineman aren't considered skilled.

Being meaty isn't a skill.
Argue with the NFL.

NFL skill positions:

The skill positions are: Quarterback. Running back, particularly halfback. Wide receiver. Cornerback. Safety. Return specialist. Less commonly, linebacker and defensive end.

That is ridiculous. Because not just anyone can be a pulling guard, know how to defend the passer, and so on. Maybe not "as skilled" as a QB, but certainly differently skilled.

When all your information comes from Wikipedia maybe you don't actually know. It has more to do with handling the ball, and scoring points than the word "skill" implies. They pay premium for the ball skills. This is true. I mean to say a guy who opens holes in defensive lines, or sacks a quarterback has no skills is idiotic.

Defensive End is a Lineman.
It is clear you don't know football- it was clear before this gaff.
And that's ok.
