You know, you've changed my mind, you are completely correct, lets put F.C. Barcelona on the same field as the Denver Broncos and i think we all know who winds up with more people in the ER or the Morgue

Because you can easily transplant players of different sports into the one you're trying to back just to show they aren't good enough for you.

Because of culture, because of rule differences, because of popularity, because of increased pressure to perform, because adults are significantly faster and stronger, making the hits harder. Oh, and if american football isn't played elsewhere, then WORLDWIDE the number of incidents changes anyway, so if it's 240k for american football in the US and 90k for football, then you need to add in the 2 million injuries worldwide since the US is only 4.4% of the world population, and that's done assuming the number of injuries is directly proportional to the population, which is the only way I can see you trying to do your math. Of course, if you think American football has 3:1 injuries over football in EVERY country then you don't get out much.

Maybe i did not properly explain, if the rest of the world suddenly had the same participation stats in American Football as the US why would the number of injuries go down below the number of soccer injuries? That is what i meant by "all else being equal"
For example if American football magically became as popular in Brazil as it is in the US, which sport would see more injuries in its participants?

No, no they wouldn't. American football is played almost exclusively in America. Also, school-age sports are NOT representative of professional sports even a little.
#28 - mattymc (03/12/2016) [-]
So why would the numbers be different if it were played elsewhere? if the same percentage of people (of any age) participated in those sports as in the US, why would the ratio of injuries between the two change? (thats Football: 240,000 to Soccer: 90,000 so roughly 3:1)

I'm assuming that this is from some sort of press show or tour, considering the large amount of street clothes on that carrier's deck.

The Navy does this thing called Tiger Cruises where civilians can ride onboard for a couple of days. My carrier recently finished a deployment and a lot of the crew were able to being there family's onboard in Hawaii and ride all the way to San Diego.

its reasonably representative, average adults cannot participate in organized full-contact leagues so this is the largest possible sample size from a very large country. True soccer is more popular worldwide but all else equal I guarantee that the proportion of injuries per sport would stay stable
