A game played by a bunch of euro-trash 200 lb. men who ware really short pants, and is watched by a bunch of rich euro-trash men who think Rugby is better than Football because in football you have pads. Honestly, who could not LIVE through ONE GAME, without pads in football. I mean, a game lasts 4 hours and you get tackled every play. There is one term in football called a sack, where a 400 lb. Defensive End (Who can bench press 200-350 lb.) will tackle the querterback. The QB is 175-225 FUCKIN POUNDS! Now let me tell you, a hard enough hit could very well paralyze him for life (And it's happened before. Just like when Oakland Raider's Safety Jack Tatum tackled a New England Wide Reciever to paralize him for life in the 80's.)
Misconceptions about Football:
1. There usually are no substitutions unless you have a very big lead, becuase the coach dosn't want his players to get severely injured
2. You only get 3 timeouts a half, I mean they are hardly noticible
3. The men in football arn't fat, just very muscular, in both there arms in legs
4. It's not homosexual, just like Rugby's not homosexual.
Things that suck about Rugby:
1. It's called a man's sport but is played by women and people in wheelchairs.
2. It's watched by upper-class Euro-trash
3. All of it's fans say it's better than Football but have never seen football game in there life (Unless they live in Germany)
4. It dosn't require nearly enough strategy as football
5. They were very short pants
6. It's a wannabe version of football
7. It's boring compared to Football, Basketball, Baseball, and even SOCCER!
8. SOCCER is better than this game!
Yeah football players were pads and helmets, but for one the helmets look cool as fuck and keep both your head from cracking and from 400 lb. men from snapping your neck, and the pads prevent people from giving you bruises all over your body.
And Yeah, Rugby dosn't have pads or helmets, but you have to take into account Rugby players arn't that big and a Linebacker or Defensive end in football can be 2x the size of a rugby player, and a defensive end and linebacker both have to tackle men who are half there size. I mean, if American Football didn't have padding everyone on the offense would be dead at the end of the game, as these guys can lift up 300 lb. and can run 40 yards in 4 seconds. Now when you have a 400 lb. guy who can lift 300 lb. and is running 10 yards a second and he's comming right after you that will cause you to be paralyzed every single time, pads or not.
All in all, Rugby is for a bunch of rich 200 lb. pussies who argue that it is better and more hard hitting even though football players are twize there size and can run much faster then them. It's a boring sport that's fans are obviously are all idiots and wastes of life because they talk shit about a sport they no nothing about and should just shut there Euro-Trash mouths!
P.S. I know I'm getting a thumbs down for this
A game where punching, kicking, Stamping on somebody's head isn't totally frowned upon
a sport played by real men that aren't afraid to get tackled. unlike that poofy padded up to ur fuckin balls sport that u fat americans play that stops every 10 seconds. every time an american football player gets past the first down line they fall to the ground or run out of bounds cos they are scared of getting tackled even though they are covered from head to toe in pads and bubble wrap. fuckin pussies. saying that pads make the game tougher is bollocks. there are more concussions and serious injuries in rugby than any other ball sport, FACT. saying that rugby and REAL football have no strategy just cos they dont have to remember hundreds of plays just shows how retarded you are. sport is supposed to be about physical fitness and skill. not a fucking memory game. american football game might last longer but that dont mean the players have more endurance and stamina, cos most of the time they are standing around doing fuck all between the plays and only half the team play at a time.
american football is rugby for poofs
A hooligan's sport, played by gentlemen. A sport in which the select few athletes that can compete in such an activity are looked upon as homosexuals by those who cannot. (Note: above definitions)
1.) The world's greatest sport, for men and women alike.
2.) The only sport where none of the fans dare to mess with you after the game if you lose.
3.) The sport you either have to be very brave or very stupid to play (or very drunk ;])
Contrary to popular belief, women who play rugby aren't all lesbians.
Last season, my rugby team experienced the following injuries:
2 broken legs, a broken foot, 7 concussions, 2 bloody noses, 2 rolled ankles, innumerable cuts, gouges, and bruises, a bruised sternum, a bruised collarbone, and one hospitalization. We only lost 2 players for the upcoming seasons.
The game they play in heaven.
Rugby (noun). The game they play in heaven.
An amazing sport, often stereotyped as a man's game, but girls rugby is growing, and we kickass at it! Requires stamina and willpower.
Rugby is made for all genders - our team is living proof of that.
It is American football minus everything that soccer fans say sucks about American football. It is also soccer minus everything that American football fans say sucks about soccer. It is a compromise that happens to be better than the alternatives. Rugby keeps it's violence on the field unlike soccer and it doesn't apologize for it like the NFL. Further more, it's culture is all inclusive. Ruggers don't care if you are black, white, tall, short, gay, straight, fat, skinny, or even if you just suck at rugby. If you can take the beating you are welcome to play. There are lots of rules but the only one that matters is if you get ejected for fighting you owe the guy you fought a beer.
No one cares that you suck at rugby. We'll sub you in for the last ten minutes and if you don't need to go to the hospital you can get drunk with us after the game.
