Ive read somewhere that football players spend like >0.1 percent of thier football career actually playing football, and the rest is practice, replay viewing, stratagey and so and so. Is this true? I find it hard to believe that to be a top player you have to acutally spend less time on football.
Furthemore i read that one of the things that made Jerry Rice the player he is, is that he actually played even less football, and trained more.
Could someone shed some light or refer me to clear resources?
