Why do people in the USA prefer American football over soccer? Why do they find soccer relatively boring?

Why do professional footballers (soccer) get cramps when playing extra time? Why don't they train to be able to play for two hours instead of one and a half?
Muscle cramps aren't the result of the player's training and conditioning.

Factors leading to cramp include:expenditure of fuel needed by muscle cells

Absolutely not. There's nothing athletic about bodybuilding. Athletic ability involves speed, coordination, endurance, and moving the body through space. Most bodybuilders would not put their body through much cardiocascular exercise for fear of breaking down muscle. Plus they COULD not, carrying around so much useless mass. Most high level sprinters are very muscular, but could

Probably about 75–80% of them wouldn't do very well at all, because the body size and composition for the positions is quite different from soccer.Soccer players most closely resemble corner backs and small wide receivers. A few larger wide receivers and safeties have the right build (minus some muscle) to be effective center backs and forwards,
I would most likely be a MLB player. The top contracts in the MLB can average out to $30–40 MILLION per year. That's double what most top NFL players other than QBs make. Being a non-contact sport, baseball is a hell of a lot safer than football.The best international soccer

‘Football' was a game played in Medieval England, albeit it had a very fluid set of rules. Disagreements over formal attempts to codified the rules in the 1850s, 60s and 70's led to a split into different codes, which became the different family of games we know as Football

Whether an exercise burns fat or muscle (or sugar for that matter) is not a product of the specific exercise, because any exercise can burn muscle.

Britney's soccer practice is 1 hour and a half. She spends 1/3 of that for warm-up, 1/2 of the remaining time for speed drills. She practices her goal shot for the rest of the time. She shots 2 times every minute. How many shots does She do?
Britney has 90 minutes total to practice. She spends 30 minutes (1/3) on warm-up, leaving 60 minutes. Half of 60 minutes is 30 minutes spent on speed drills, leaving her 30 minutes to practice goal shots. If she does 2 shots every minute, she can get in 60 shots.
A player can certainly retire at any time. However, they are then legally not able to sign a professional contract with another team until the existing contract expires. I presume that most professional contracts, having been written by highly paid lawyers, protect the club from a player retiring
