That was until they put the pads on. After that they changed their mind.
Yet again HH as masterminded a fucking pointless thread. He’s not happy with rubbishing soccer, now he wants to compare Rugby with US Fotball.
I know that you don’t like HH, but jeez, I was the one who compared rugby to football. I just can’t stand it when people treat football like it’s a religion. It’s just a bloody sport, and there are sports that, in my opinion, are better barometers of a person’s greatness than football. Think about all those kickers and punters stretching their legs for 55 minutes and getting all the credit for winning a game with a time-expired field goal.
But yeah, this thread is pointless. Oh, well. Anyway, the reason why American football players don’t trash rugby is because they think that rugby players are tough for not wearing pads. I get that from football players all the time.
I do find football DANGEROUS, yes. You have people that are essentially human missiles launching towards each other. I don’t find that tough. I find that sissy. Would they be launching themselves like that if they weren’t so well protected? I seriously doubt it. And don’t get me started on what the NHL was before the strike and rule changes made it more than football on skates.
“Any Given Sunday” wasn’t a bad movie. Fun to watch, but it is one of those movies that glorifies the violence in professional football. Jamie Foxx reading the newspaper on the bench as a third-string QB was damn funny, though.
I should admit that I was giddy for a week when Doug Flutie drop-kicked that extra point for the Patriots last season.
