    American Football > Hockey > Rugby > all other sports

    I love to watch any sport with alot of hitting! Naturally, I am biased with American football because I live in the states...but I will stay up late into the night to watch ESPN and ESPN2 and catch up on the international scene!

    I live in rugby mad New Zealand, if you get a chance to catch some rugby league though, I think in terms of 'one on one hits', its comparable to NFL . But they dont even come close to the game still played by Maori people, 'rutu'. 2 even sides ( any number of players, no time limits ). Heel knee elbow shoulder and head strikes are permissable, but only in the torso region of the opponent. Protective equipment is not allowed. The object - STAY CONSCIOUS!!! We play a game of 'rutu' tomorrow (27/5/05)and our team should number between 35-40. It would not be uncommon to see 50-60 Knock Outs. Perhaps you might like to start a 'rutu' league in Hawaiki Mirikaha (America)
    you have everything you need to!!!

    Not even close your hieney, American NFL has the toughest all around athletes in the world, you would never know this because of where you live, but enough with the whole "they wear pads" BS, if NFL players didn't wear pads, there would be fatalities every week. Tell me, with the huge success as the NFL is, why can't other countries develope teams to compete with Americans? Well, I know it can be an expensive sport to support, with the gear and all. Another reason would be that it's just way too complicated for the average person outside of here (US) to understand, and lastly, ya just don't have the horses to compete, let's face it, NFL players are superior athletes and any nation that tried to put a team on the field would get DRUBBED to say the least, I think of all nations, the Dutch and Germans would be able to put together teams that MIGHT be able to compete with our high school football teams, but even that I doubt. There is clearly a lack of appreciation and respect for the NFL, and it's just lack of understanding is why, I don't hold this against you, but when you start with the whole pads thing, then you clearly show your lack of knowledge when it comes to that argument.

    NFL is far more superior than your "poor mans" version of American Football you call Rugby, it's not even close, I'd love to see some of your best rugby players come try and play a few positions in an NFL training camp, and see what he thinks afterwards, but it would be in vein if he didn't tell all those rugby fans (England, Australia) that by simply wearing pads makes him inferior, but it's rather his lack of athletic ability. Especially the Britts, God bless you guys, your our allies, but when it comes to sports, you are delusional if you think rugby players could stand up to elite NFL talent, and I'm not talking QB's, I mean like Linebackers, Safties, Fullbacks/Running Backs and Defensive Linemen......try and do your thing over here and you would be humbled rather instantly.

    I only really like AFL (Australian Rules Football) when they had that Super Goal thing going a few years back when they got 8 Points for a goal outside the 50 Meter mark. Im not 100% sure what NFL is but RUGBY wether Leage or union is pretty much crap along side American football which definatly is the Gayest sport in the history or gayness. However I dont mind the State Of Origin as its usually accompanied by Booze and a good time.
