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.

I'm so fucking tired of people saying Football is "Soft Rugby". Now think about this, imagine if your watching a Rugby game, only that all the players had Motorcycle Helmets and VERY hard shoulder pads made of hard plastic. The tackles would be 10x as hard with these items on. While I will admit that these things DO make the tackler feel less pain when they tackle an opposing player, it DOES make the person recieving the tackle hurt A LOT more.

Not only that, but the game of Rugby contains no strategy whatsoever. While in Football, you have to memorize over 400+ plays and 17 Formations and you have to do it PERFECTLY. Like for instance, your a Wide Reciever and the QB says "42 red Right" you must know EXACTLY what rout your going to take, whether it's a hook, slant, straight, etc. None of that in Rubgy, you could be a complete dumbass and still be succesful in Rugby, that's not true with football.
Rugby should be renamed "Soft Football With NO Strategy"

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.

Noun: (See also eggchasing)
A bizzare sport played with a ball shaped like an egg that bounces oddly.

Created after some guy was so rubbish at football he picked it up and ran with it at private Rugby School, England, also known as Toff's Palace. Also known as 'the Darkest day in Sport' ever.

The idea of Rugby is to run the egg over the tryline of the opposing team. Alternative points can be scored by kicking the egg between two goalposts (H-shaped) at the ends of the rectangular pitch.

NB: Rugby is a terrible sport. The reasons why follow:

- Is the only sport I know that actually ENCOURAGES you to fall on another man's rear
- The ball is the wrong shape
- Played by snobs who call it 'rugger'
- People pretend its an international sport when really only '6 nations' (4 of which are currently or where part of Great Britain) can be arsed to turn up in the whole of Europe (even San Marino cobble together a team for football, 16 countries make up the European Championships in football) and the only other countries who care about rugby are in the Commonwealth - Great Britain owns them!
- Has two forms to disgrace our TV screens with - Union and League
- You can kick the egg out of play for your benefit (?)
- Anyone under 6'0" can't really get involved

Overall, rugby is crap. England are current world champions beating mighty forces in world sport such as Georgia and Romania to the final. A game for closet homosexuals who like to feel men up when in a scrum.

Play proper sports that are truly international like golf, tennis and football. Ditch the ugly blot of 'sport' that is rugby.
For God's sake ... Grandstand have Rugby on all day again. Turn on Soccer Saturday - a proper sport everyone cares about!

Spin-off sport of football, which is a real sport. Some twat was a bit shit at football so decided to pick up the ball and run with it. The posh bastards then decide to name their World Cup after him. Has more players in a team than football because posh people can afford more friends.
