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

Union: A game that takes balls to play. Gibby is playing it in heaven right now.

If you are part of the pack you fight over the ball every time there is a tackle and make up the entire scrum. Tight (3) or Loose (1), propping always hurts. You get both sides of the scrum squeezing your vertebrae together. 2nd rowers (locks)(4/5) love to grab props nads. Flankers always break off early on the defensive side and make the tackle (6/7). The 8-man is pretty versatile in that he both stops the ball with his feet and does 8-man pickups. He tends to be a large, strong, technically sound player.

The best forward #2- Hooker is an incredibly important and difficult position. They can vary in size from the largest to the smallest player on the team. In every scrum he must either get the ball from the scrumhalf and hook it back with his foot or try to steal it from the other hooker (I love doing that from tighthead). It is the position with the most pressure as well as the most dangerous position if a scrum collapses. (I have had 400 kilos/880 pounds on my neck). Hookers also throw the ball in during lineouts.

If you are a back you can be a pansy and kick it away, be an intelligent back and pass it just as you are tackled, be a manly back and get tackled by a forward who is twice your size, dodge around people and score, or try to imitate Johnny Wilkinson.
There are 7 backs. The Scrumhalf (9) is similar to a quarterback in American Football. It is the scrumhalf's job to toss the ball out at every ruck. They are excellent decision makers. The Flyhalf (10) is usually a good kicker and is the scrumhalf's backup. He is always ready to be the first pass out from the scrumhalf but can be ignored entirely or skipped. The inside and outside centers blend together and are just people who get passed to (12/13). The wingers cover the sides of the field and can also kick.

The best back #15- The Fullback. Possibly the most mentally stressful position. On offense, he melds with the backline and does as much or more than the outside centers.
The last line of defense for the rugby team. Any kick that goes deep into either team's territory will be recovered by the fullback or will be a try. Some fullbacks are more skilled than punt returners in American Football and will break three or four tackles befor going down. If a player breaks a long run and gets passed all the other players, he has a one on one with the fullback. Fullbacks are without question the best tacklers. They never miss.

League: Like union with less players and without rucking, a bit slow. Mainly Aussies (Roosters) and some Kiwis (Warriors)
The fullback caught the ball at the twenty-two and ran it up the touch line to the other twenty-two. As he was tackled he passed the ball to the unmarked hooker who dived in for the try just as five of the other teams players reached him.

Rugby is the ultimate test of overall manliness (strenght, speed, power, strategy, character, loyalty).

Unlike in some codes of football (which shall not be named), loyalty towards your teammates is ranked above everything else including personal comfort. Therefore you will not find any players rolling on the grass with their knee in the air because of a chipped nail.
Guy: what did you do this weekend?
Rugby player: played a game of rugby, got a black eye and broke both me legs. Not much really.
Guy: man, that must suck.
Rugby player: not really, we won so it was awsome!

An awesome sport requiring teamwork, fitness and willingness to get beat up by the other team. Points are scored by touching the ball down past the opponent's goal line, preferable under the H-shaped goal posts. This is called a try and is worth 5 points. Kicking the ball through the H-shaped goal posts above the crossbar is another point scorer. This, if done directly after scoring a try, is called a conversion and is worth 2 points. If your team gets to try and kick the ball because the other team got a penalty it is called a penalty kick and is worth 3 points. Rugby is demanding and lots of fun. Rugby is a fun game to watch, shout from the sidlines of, and abuse the referees of.
New Zealander: Rugby Rocks! And the All Blacks can beat every Rugby team there is!
Australian: Yea Rugby is neat. And umm well yes they can I guess.
New Zealander: :) Thanks for admiting it :)
Australian: Yea
English guy: The Lions beat the All Blacks!
Austrailian: Yea they did!!!!
New Zealander: Yup. They sure did. After the All Blacks beat them twice.
English guy: Umm yea forgot about that for a sec.

And so, you see, The All Blacks rule the rugby world!

A kick-ass sport. Basically involves sprinting like your pants are on fire (for backs) or smacking the shit out of people (for forwards). Oh and there's a ball too. Two kinds: Union (for real men) and League (for pansies). Lots of people say its better than football b/c there are no pads. People, football pads don't stop you from being beat up. Football players are usually bigger and hit harder, so there's no real difference in toughness. Soccer blows ass though.
Guy 1:Man I'm pissed off
Guy 2: Go play rugby and kick the shit out of some dudes

If you want a sport that's fun and gets chicks without making you into a jerkoff jock, play rugby.

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.
