A human opponent can go outside the realm of common practice and unwritten rules in sports games for better or for worse, whereas the AI will generally stay within those rules.

When playing against a human opponent that knows the sport being played and agrees to play by the unwritten rules of conduct(ex: punting on 4th down in their own end), you can pick up patterns in their play. I enjoy playing against a human opponent like this.

When playing against a human opponent that employs no strategy but random behavior, I tend to think their grasp on the sport being played is shaky at best. This isn't always the case though as I know some knowledgeable football people that when sitting down to play Madden (or whatever football game) do very dumb things they would throw fits over if 'their' team IRL did the same.

I'd much rather play against the AI than a human opponent that does things randomly the whole game throwing out all conventional wisdom.
All too true, thats why I keep my Human v Human sports gaming strictly to a few choice friends, that keep the game with-in the realm of realism.
Football, though, is the major offender here, I dont think theres much of a counterpart in a B-ball or a MLB game for the constant QB sneaks or 4th and looong attempts of football games.

Couldn't agree with you more, I play HUM vs. HUM games with a select group of friends and leave it at that. Every so often I take the gamble and play random online games but you never know what you're going to get. I don't care about the arguments from people who strictly play online and make excuse after excuse trying to justify what they're doing. I'm a sports fan, I play sports games because I'm a sports fan. When I play a football game against someone who chooses a 98 Speed WR as a QB or play a basketball game against someone who controls one player and hangs around the net on the inbound ... that's just not fun. As I said before, I'm a sports fan ... I play sports games because of it ... so now I just play with other people who share that some passion for sports gaming. I spend more and more time playing games by myself because of this ... sometimes it's better than others ... but at least I'm getting what I'm looking for.
