Thread: More Michael Vick....

    Sorry, but football just rules. Call me an isolationist, but I am more than happy to spend a weekend watching football, and I'll take that over 5 minutes of soccer. I don't know about rugby because I haven't watched enough, but for the love, soccer is boring as all heck. If that means that I'm hiding in my country, so be it.

    bluestater,

    Rugby is basically football without obese defenders, helmets and protective pads and constant stopping of action. It is basically similar to soccer but you hold the ball in your hands and you can tackle people.

    I like watching soccer. Don't do it alot I guess because I don't have a team but I can watch it--unlike golf, NASCAR, poker, basketball, or a lot of the phony stuff ESPN comes up with.

    I enjoy, in both baseball and football, the charted progress. Stealing second, pushing through at fourth and inches for a first down - love it. Soccer is too all over the place. If that's what rugby is like, I won't like it. I have tried to enjoy soccer-I went to World Cup games when they were in the US, myriad college and high school games, and even a Chicago Fire game a few weeks ago. Sorry - I was bored.

    And don't knock the obese defenders - they're undoubtedly 10X the athletes than you think they are.

    Fine bluestater. It is you right to enjoy American football. However, the salaries and the publicity bring them to a level of a God-like creature. I don’t see how that is justified by a chartered progress of the downs that you enjoy.

    I played rugby for a few years. It's alright, I had more fun playing football. I do laugh when I hear football refered to as the "ultimate team game". Rugby is certainly more of a team game.

    I will say that the best rugby players I was around had wrestling experience. All of the non-wrestlers had trouble actually tackling people instead of launching yourself like football. The wrestlers just got low like and exploded like they were shooting doubles.
