I play rugby, and I cant imagine a more violent sport. No refs (basicly) means you can do whatever you want! I know a guy who runs down the field jabbing people in the throat as he goes!

he is from the late 90's but look at jonah lomu he was huge, fast and strong and a good player. i would say the way the nfl players hit is hard but its what people say could they do it for 80 mins? i would say they are both great athletes in there own right but a rugby team would beat a nfl team......maybe smile.gif

I am only talking about NFL and whatever the best rugby players are. I belive the NFL has the best athletes in all of sports other than Boxing and NHL.

The question is, who is more fearless? The brits! They dont have any teeth to be knocked out. Oh zing.

This ain't exactly a valid question, but I would say overall rugby probably has the players in the best shape. You also have to take into account that this is a US vs the rest of the world question. Canada's football players are tiny and suck, hence why they play in canada (yes I know canada is CFL not NFL.) Who's to say Water Polo doesnt have the best athletes?

Personally I donít feel you can compare the athletes of either sport since their trained for a different type of game.

For instance, Rugby players are conditioned for endurance and power, while NFL players are conditioned for immense blocking power and evasive sprints.

If your going to bring in other sports i dont see how you can say anyone is in better shape than a Boxer.

30-60 minutes of you getting pounding on (no one else to rely on) but still going, i dont think any sport can out do that.

I dont mean Footaball players are in better shape, i mean NFL players are.

The NFL pays more money than any rugby league, so common sense says they will get the best athlets (why pay someone millions if you could get someone better).

Also you cant complain that most QBs are scared to get hit or cant take a hit without pads becuase its against NFL players who are great tacklers.

I bet Ray Lewis hit way harder than any rugby player.

The national faggot league are exactly that, fags in pads. I wouldn't be surprised if the fags wore suspenders and g string s underneath that body armour. To even suggest NFL is a sport is laughable.

Yea. they are some hard tackles but its not like that happens every tackle. most of those were hideously high, and should think that most players got warned/off for doin it. I think that should be stressed to Americans who probably havent watched much rugby that it isnt a legal tackle when so high... its is a great game as well as a brawl.

i do think if a rugby player and a pro (american) football player had a fight, the big bastard rugby guy would win 9 out of 10... watch some of the hits... even after being smashed they dont even drop the ball smile.gif

The NFL is a primere competitve sport. Why would we (Americans) send our thouroughbred athletes to go at it in such a worhless game, thats nothing more than a glorfied bar brawl.

If we wanted to compete in Rugby, we'd send our NFL rejects to stomp on the rest of the Rugby playin planet.

if u watch both games there actually isnt a whole lot of difference between them, just american football has pads and more stopping for tactics... so if rugby is a "bar brawl" then NFL is a bar brawl for pussys lol
