Knine has an OK reputation so far
Default Who thinks football is a rough sport?

I mean these dudes wear all this equipment. But the thing I most dislike about football is that you only have 1 position and that position only has maybe 1-2 things they do. A lineman does nothing but block, RBs rush the ball and catch short routes and block for the QB, etc. Doesnt that ever get boring. I mean where is the variety. All they do is lift in the weightroom and try to get bigger, like lifting weights is really that hard. The team has like 50 players so I mean one player can hardly play at all.

Your ignorance is amazing.

You are obviously from soemwhere outside North America.

I've played both Rugby and Football, and let me put it to you like this:

Football is ten times more violent

Rugby = Contact sport

Football = Collision sport

big difference.

Don't get me wrong I love rugby, but I also find it incredibly ignorant when people think because pads are worn that somehow football isnt tough.

Things happen so much faster and harder on the football field it isnt even comparable.

If I were a football player, I'd find it tremendously boring being a lineman or some sh&t like that. Just my personal preference.
