As a matter of fact, America does have two rugby teams (last time I checked).
They played in the world cup in 2007 and 2011. The two teams they have is Georgia and USA.
However, I don't think that they are talking about rugby here, but American football. Rugby and American football is not the same thing.
Isn't this common knowledge???

Coaches and teams don't generate revenue, they use the assets the state taxpayers allocates in a pointless distraction-entertainment-ponzi scheme.
Give any sound business investment $100s of millions to "generate revenue", and I'm sure they could exceed the revenue of a amatuer sports team....so sports isn't unique in that regard.
It's all an exercize in stupidity. "Team work", lol... how about thinking and working independently? Self-reliance, self-starting, PRACTICAL GOALS! All sports manages to do is entertain and brainwash dummies into a torrid state of ignorance.

Are you serious? One of the major problems with Americans growing up to have no personal identity strength and will to overcome adversity is lack of competition and feeding them the your all winners no matter what line. America may not lead in education but our graduates are not stupid they are FREAKING LAZY and WEAK MINDED.edit on 14-5-2013 by constantwonder because: (no reason given)
Personal identity strength" doesn't come from competition. It comes from being an individual. It comes from character, ethics, and consistency in ones life. It comes from knowing yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, and challenging yourself to go further
