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?

but id go with soccer players being in the best shape, then rugby...

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.
Yes becuase you had alot of good points.... oh wait you had none.

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.
your joking right??
rugby is definatly more hardcore.Just because they are fat and then just land on you dosnt mean they are stronger.

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

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