A game that is in fact a lot better than football. You run faster, hit harder, have little rest, get punched on a constant basis because the other team that started it thinks your dirty (it's not my fault), and at least in Wisconsin someone gets a concussion a game. Why do pads make it more dangerous? They cushion you and slow the players down a bit. Football has a stoppage every 10 seconds, while Rugby does not.
I speared a guy so hard in Fond du Lac he didn't get up for a few minutes then ran over and tackled another dude. Finally, I ran after some massive forward and said "Aww, Fuck it I am playing rugby". Then I whipped my body at him to slow him down because he was twice my size and could bench press my whole family.
