"that is the crazy game with no protection, no way would you get me playing that sport with no protection!" to which i would reply "because we dont hit as hard as you do. "

take away protection they learn how to tackle properly, THERE ARE SO MANY INJURIES COS THEY HAVE PROTECTION AND THEY HIT IN STUPID WAYS YOU WOULD NEVER DREAM OF WITHOUT HELMETS ETC.............easy isn't it.

When i was working in Pittsburgh i had a chat with Lee Flowers who was playing for the Steelers at the time.  I told him i play Rugby, his reply was "that is the crazy game with no protection, no way would you get me playing that sport with no protection!"

That proves my point really!


Not really, us americans don't really know what rugby is[;)]

in rugby you generally catch the ball once it has been thrown back to you. in american football you can get thrown the ball forwards with you running at full speed with your eyes on the abll behind you.. catch it.. then get hit (even legally in rugby league) and get knocked for six. thats why the padding is there.

"because we dont hit as hard as you do. " because the protection enables them to and the sound of all the helmets smashing into each other makes it sound harder.....i am not arguing that NFL don't hit hard, they do.

sorry diddent elaborate enough there.once you catch the ball theres a guy running in full speed into you.. so two people running full speed into eachother = masssssive hit requiring the padding to be there.

SDL where did you get this stat there have been nearly 2000 deaths with some form of protection,which bit of all this dont
you understand

Do you understand what indirect and direct fatalities mean?  There hasn't been 2000 fatalities in American football due to playing the sport.

Idiot.

From 1931 to 2006, the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research has reported 1,006 direct and 683 indirect fatalities resulting from participation in all organized football (professional, college, high school, and sandlot) in the US .

so that would be 1000 fatalities due to playing American football.  Have you been educated?

he has got a point about the protection.. you take away the helmets and you will soon see no head to head contact which the NFL claims they want eradicate.. but the nfl love it :)

NFL players are soft as anything, I seem to remember my Dad telling me how two players came over in the early 80's or so to play league and they lasted 3 months as it was too physically demanding.

The only sport as "tough" as Rugby League is Australian Rules, now they are nutters.

Yanks = ponces.

Oh and the reason there are lots of NFL deaths is that most of them are on steroids of some description.

comparing league and nfl idiotic, nfl players trained for short bursts , i doubt any league player would cut it really. the same way i doubt many of the nfl big men would last 80 mins of league. some of the  nfl lads 25-30 stone, trained for 10 metre bursts, they would destroy best league has IMO. different games FFS

exactly 2smiggy, if some League rocked up to an NFL teams pre season training they would be kicked out for be too slow and too weak.

They did a race of the quickest Aussie rugby league and union players over 100 metres. Not one of them broke 11 seconds Laugh

NFL full of players with competition recorded sub 10.20 100m in college track meets. Hundreds of players every year run a quicker 40 than Usain Bolt.

It's a terrible comparison.

Outside the physical aspect the reason NFL is adored is because it has immense skill and tactics.

Rugby league is just two teams running at each other trying to score tries. NFL is one team trying to outwit the other every single play of the game.
