    Man that game is fun, the only thing I don't like is all the running, like soccer or basketball. That's why I like American football. Take a break, caught your breath, line up, and then knock the **** out of each other. The down side of American football is that it is so compicated. There are a **** load of rules and I know because I am an offical. If you are not raised on this game I could see where you would hate it.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    American 'football' is for those that lack the testicular fortitude for rugby, or who are too steroid-addled to run for more than 10 feet.

    Actual football is for degenerate pleb scum.

    Any questions?

    Of course that can be said about pretty much every sport.

    Relax dude they are all games.

    I don't have a problem with games like Soccer/Football (whatever), I don't care to watch game like basketball, or hockey or polo, or lacross, or any running back and forth type games. If you like them, more power to you. I like baseball okay, and I think I would like cricket. I played rugby in college and I liked it, but not to watch.

    American football is for pussies who need body armor and a break every 10 seconds.

    This is a bit of a tangent, but has anyone here ever checked out "kabaddi"? It's an Indian/South Asian team sport that incorporates a lot of grappling (some people describe it as a cross between rugby and wrestling, but that's kind of imprecise).

    Here's a clip:

    Wow that court/board mat, field whatever the hell you call it looks like something out of some cheesey SF movie.
