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.
