Hey, shoulder pads arent the only protection they got....they also have mouthguards
By the way, why dont you try playing a REAL football code like Australian Rules football....we hit just as hard and dont wear any protetcion at all.
No wonder the Dallas Cowboys players that came and watched a game (of Australian Rules) last year thought we were insane
hahaha, guess what I did play rugby while at montana also. Only for about year. But personally I didnt like it as much as american football. And no
montana dosent have a rugby team, im talking about a amature rugby league that was ran out of seattle by a bunch of australian guys who thought their
s**t didnt stink. Must be the water down their. As far as it being a "real mans game" that is debateable.
Im not saying american football is, but I myself wouldnt be promoting rugby as the orginal "real man's game" because I like to think real men are
a little smarter than just playing a exagerrated game of kill the guy with the ball. or "smear the queer" (if you like, what ever the name of the
game depending on were you grew up.) like rugby is.
I found rugby boring and moronic, no official offense or defense like another poster posted. Also, their was almost no strategy involved. (It was
almost missing all things I love about american football) And plus I didnt grow up on it like i did with american football. like a lot of my
austrailian and new zealand team mates did. Don't get me wrong I did enjoy some of it. I liked the comrodery and it was good old fashioned fun to
bulldose a guy and not worry about a penality.
Man, most of those austrailan guys were tough as shoe leather. And, Some of those guys were down right nice guys, but most were dirty buttholes in
their attitude. I guess I'd act like my crap didnt stink if I were as good at rugby as those clowns were. They were good, tough but not really
athletic. Athletic enough, and the rest was pure balls and heart. I respect that.
Now, im not saying all rugby players and austrailians are dirty buttholes and unathletic. I've been to austrailia and loved it. The people were great
and I had a great time. Im Just talking about my personal experience with rugby and the players I played with. So please to any aussies, dont be
offended, and if you are go have a fosters with crocadile dundee and chill out. * just joking friends
* Im a fat, greasy no it all american
myself. And I say if you cant laugh at yourself, dont laught at all.
Sorry about the spelling everyone, im pressed for time and I rushed through this. And plus even when im taking my time im a horrible speller and
