I put this up because my tons of my family and friends argue about hockey being better than soccer or soccer being better than hockey. Please give reasons why hockey or soccer is better.

Hockey is far too boring and only really a girls sport (we don't get to play it much in PE), for me soccer... sorry Football (!!!) is the beautiful game it is great to play and to watch. I love the skill and technique and loling at the idiots XD. Although hockey is fast paced there are too few shots on goal and alot of passing it about the back but that is just my experience from watching it in the olympics.

Hockey is way better because you can smoke guys into the boards. Soccer is for wimps because in the professionals if they fall they start crying or get really upset.

What??? The professional league is all men... and most leagues are men's leagues...

What games are you watching? :P Hockey teams usually get around 25-31 shots a game! While soccer, usually 10 or so!

Anyways. I'd have to say hockey is better. It is way more fast paced, and there are more shots on goal, and more goals. As well, there's less passing than in soccer, in soccer it is mostly passing and gets boring to watch after a while.

However, playing soccer (with friends, I'm not in a league or anything) is pretty fun, and can be fast-paced. Watching it is boring though.

The olympic version is NOT REGULAR HOCKEY. Watch the NHL and watch a Western Conference game, now THAT is hockey.

In my experiences with soccer there is way too much faking of injuries and screaming in pain then getting up perfectly fine when you don't get the call.

NOT REGULAR HOCKEY


Sorry I was bored and decided to be obtuse

Ice hockey dates to the late 19th century. "Field" hockey comes from B.C. so I think it can hold the title of Regular :P But hey for me when I hear Hockey I think Field not Ice but I have accustomised myself to this Americanised site but like I say I was bored so I'm sorry.

From talking to fst6 it sounds like there is plenty enough diving and moaning in hockey. I don't like the mega-violence stuff you see in sports from North America (American football, NASCAR, ice hockey etc. it gets boring quickly for me) but I can watch goals like this over and over

however for all you people who love to see pain I have a treat
<<<< This guy is not faking trust me

Playing hockey is funner because it's indoors, and when your playing soccer it's usually hot and sunny in summer, so you get sweaty easily!

(I'm not talking floor hockey here)

Also, hockey is more exciting to watch than soccer.

I'm sorry but you just lost the game, hockey is way better, soccer is just a bunch of field faeries kicking a ball around, there is no action.
