A boxer has and uses a lot more tools than just his two arms in the ring. In fact, there is well known footage of Prince Naseem Hamed as a child of around 11 years old with both his hands locked behind his back dancing around the ring and avoiding all attacks by he older fighter told to hit him. A boxer uses his legs, bends at various angles at the waist, twists his neck away from punches defensively, etc. The analogy is not that far off at all, especially at the top level of soccer, where triangle Pbutting and eventual through Pbutting is more precise and the lost player is thus more exploited.
As I said, in the odd match, the 11 Man team might have a let down since the Sport of the match is destroyed. However, the quality of soccer, and especially quality of Pbutting is a key factor in exploiting the open man consistently and forcing the 10 Men team to run to catch up over and over again. I doubt the current Leeds team has anyone like Giles and Bremner Pbutting winning and pbutting the ball anymore.
I said the 10 Men situation Decides the match. That normally results in Deciding in favor of the 11 Men team, but sometimes it will simply transform the match into a boring defensive struggle in which the 10 Men team retreat to their own half and defend their penalty area, thereby reducing the distances they have to run to catch up to the triangle Pbutting of the other team. This can sometimes result in a 0-0 Draw after the Sent Off, such as in the main matches in question, which, when it goes to Penalty Kicks will result in the 11 Men team winning, since their legs are less tired. (England-Argentina World Cup 1998, England-Portugal World Cup 2006).
With today's electronic commerce, and on top of that additional tracing under anti-terrorism tools like the Patriot Act, your hands would most likely be rubbing together because they were cuffed behind your back, rolling along shackled in an FBI wagon.
