alright, for everyone here that thinks that real football (not soccer, you dumbasses) is a pussy sport, i dare you to try it. yea it has pads involved, but that's because the players can be up to three times the size of rugby players (literally). It is much more dangerous to get wrecked by a 450 lb gorilla than a 225 lb rugby player. Sorry to use the American incriments, but im too lazy to convert it. with that said, im playing for the rugby team this yr, instead of lacrosse (at least for now) and so far it is very fun. Having experience both, I can say honest to god that football is definately a more painful sport, and without pads there would be fatalities in every game. However, there is something about the flow of rugby that makes it just as satisfying as American football. The fluidness of passes and teh fact that plays dont stop after someone gets tackled makes rugby a much more elegant game.It's soccer, football and lacrosse all bundled into one amazing sport. While I am still partial to American football because I have been playing it longer and it has become a part of me, rugby is definately a great sport. You Europeans were definately right abt one thing, and its rugby.
in the fall i play football, and in the spring I play rugby.

1/4 of the game of football. For one, in Football you can forword pass, in Rugby you run, and you flip it to other players. You don't need to be smart in Rugby, because there is no strategy. The whole game is a group of players taking a ball and trying to run with it into an endzone. How is that fun, anyway? I have seen several Rugby games (Mostly at the ESPN Zone in Anaheim) and I honestly have no idea what the hell is so great about it.

Tackling in Rugby is latching onto another player and getting them to the ground. In American football tackling is running as fast as you can and delivering a blow to the gut. Other tackles include the helmit to chin move, Where The only thing stopping the person teach from going into there gums is a mouth guard.

Becasue there is no strategy, there are no breaks, and as a result it is very fast paced. Maybe in Europe is is a good thing, around here we don't care less about how many commercials there are. Commercails just make the game longer anyway.

Most people from europe say it's better than American Football. Most people from europe also do not have American Football.

Rugby for girls? Are you retarded? Pads make the game HARDER AND MORE HARD HITTING!! Seriesly, who the fuck said football is for pussys!? HAVE YOU SEEN A GAME OF FOOTBALL!? Pads add about 15 pounds (8 KG I think) and shoulder and leg pads make a hit hurt ten times worse, and a helmit is made of METAL. Do you know how much it hurts to get a huge ass piece of metal hitting right at your gut?? Obviously, anyone saying that is retarded and shouldn't be aloud to live.
I've watched American Football and Rugby, and American Football is better. Maybe if you've watched both you'd agree.

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

Shittiest sport in the world. Everyone says it is a real man's sport, but I don't think I feel comfortable having guys hoisting me up by my shorts... sounds more like a homosexual excuse to touch some other guy's nads.
Rugby sucks. Plain and simple.
