    I've been watching Portugal play recently and I'm very impressed. However, they stand no chance against Spain. Germany is usually dominant too but I feel there will be disappointments.

    Edit: I miss you NJ. Come back. I need someone to insult me.

    I never really got the appeal of Soccer. It's just a boring game to me.

    I disagree.

    In rugby you cannot lead with your head (not that you would want to) or shoulder charge the ball carrier. The defender must also make some attempt to wrap their arms around the runner. No such rules apply in American football, where the helmets are used as much as weapons as they are for head protection. Not that much protection either, given the incidence of early-onset dementia among ex-NFL players.

    American football generates more serious injury than any other game in the world, with players suffering head injuries and even dropping dead years after they retire because of the impact they took in their playing days.

    American football is much faster and high impact then Rugby making it more dangerous, with or without padding. with players suffering head injuries and even dropping dead years after they retire because of the impact they took in their playing days.

    Basketball is a Canadian sport dominated by black people... Why not celebrate that? Please find some consistency in your racist remarks. Then again, brain use has never been popular with racists.

    Go lift weights you somatic narcissist/peasant.

    Rugby Union is a contact sport, Murrican Football is a collision sport (a less pansy/peasant version of League.)

    The only protection I ever wore playing Union was a gumshield. Didn't stop me having my teeth smashed in though. Scrum caps are handy though, they stop forwards having their ears torn off.

    Rugby Union played badly or without rules is more dangerous than AF but the are strict guidelines for tackling.

    Moojuice brings up an important point; it's easy to say that people wear more padding in Football compared to Rugby because they're pussies, but that's ignoring the actual reason they wear it. It would turn into a literal bloodbath without it because people would be breaking bones and skulls every play from the sheer amount of explosive force that happens in football.

    Some of the most serious injuries are caused by the biggest equipment piece aka the Helmet. http://youtu.be/gWJ7Bq-Greg?t=1m25s

    Rugby has a lot of bloody injuries. Teeth, Ears and blood. Yet the NFL players are the ones getting concussions and dropping dead once they retire. Rugby players max out at 280lbs due to stamina and mobility. NFL has 350lbs men hitting people head on.
    NFL careers average 6 years. Rugby careers average 7. Except NFL players play 12 games a year during regular season. While Rugby plays about 32 I believe.

    People forget that in the early 1900s American gridiron was played with leather helmets and it was safer. (like rugby)

    Then you have players like Jack Tatum who paralyzed Stingley on pass plays.
    What I mean is that you have dangerous plays in football where someone finds himself going up up in the air to catch a ball and these are only some of the many plays where one player is very vulnerable. Blind side hits are common too.

    and then you have Brian Cushing and LaRon Landy. Who Play like every play is their last. On a mission to give all they have to offer. http://youtu.be/ufOlqbw_SKo http://youtu.be/Q0rL2wdlwZk
