"if there wasnt protection you'd have dead players on the field mate" dont talk sh't, because they have protection it lets them hit people in totally the wrong way, if they didn't have protection, they would have to learn how to hit without breaking their necks.

Learn about the history of the game and how protection has evolved with it and then you'll understand more.
Report der_der_73 February 7, 2011 12:02 AM GMT
The protection enables them to hit from all angles and not worry about killing themselves you fool, unlike Rugby where you have to get the tackle correct or else you break lots of limbs, now do one, obi one.

because they don't know how to hit properly you prat, they are not thinking "how do i hit without breaking my body" think about it, if like you say they have no protection, they would soon learn how to tackle without killing themselves.  You really are clueless, you must be a bit simple, come on admit it.

I am comparing the two, just replying to a stupid comment about if you take away protection you have dead bodies.  Totally different sports, in one you have to learn how to hit without harming your body, in the other you can dive in head first as you have full body protection.

You really are stupid!  There are so many injuries because they don't think about tackling correctly, that is the problem.  I will say this s l o w l y  f o r ..........take away protection, they have to think about how they hit, hence, less injuries....go on, try and squeeze that in your head.

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.
Report der_der_73 February 7, 2011 12:41 AM GMT
"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.
Report jeany February 7, 2011 12:41 AM GMT
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.

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.

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.
