I don't think the main difference between rugby union and American football is physical. Both sports have hard men playing flat out and both sports have big hits that would seriously damage the average guy.

I think the main difference is mental. You need a brain to play rugby. Any retard can play American football. This is possibly a reason why gridiron is popular in both the US and Germany.

Wow, now THAT was a stupid statement..... Football may be the most demanding sport intelligence wise on earth. Nothing compares intellectually with having to watch film for hours and memorize hundreds or even thousands of plays and their terminology... Please, think before you speak........

Most american football players who convert to Rugby say there are far more injuries in American football. The reason is because instead of wrapping up and trying to pull down an opponent youre just trying to hit as hard as possible. And they threatened to ban football because people were dying due to the hard hits, now they have pads to prevent people from getting killed, Rugby has apparently not killed enough people to bring about its banning. Id say the pads just equal things out, American football players hit much harder.

Besides who cares, boxing is the only sport where the best athletes are the ones who injure their opponents more frequently! Most football and Rugby players prefer for their opponents to be able to stand up after taking them down, Boxers want to make sure their opponent is incapacitated for a few seconds. If we want to talk about toughness, boxing trumps them all.

And football does require some degree of strategy and intelligence, remembering how to execute hundreds of plays isnt easy, its not just a competition of strength, stop making stupid generalizations.

Some of the big brutes in am. football can be as dumb as a bag of rocks, but the top players on the offensive have to have the capacity to memorize hundreds of plays and formations to be figured out in a matter of seconds. Same even with some on the defense. Not exactly a sport for the retards.

But the coaches do most of the thinking for them. They're following set formations that can be rehersed repeatedly in training.

In rugby players have to adapt constantly to the situation on the field of play.

Do you know if there's any plans to fill in the one remaining end? Like, definate plans? I haven't heard anything about it since the talk of floodlights! It'll look a lot better with the stands on all four sides!
