this might be why soccer will never catch on in American we're used to watching our version of football where people get slammed into by lumbering giants going at full sprint and get right back up like nothing happened and professional soccer players pull this **** (pic unrelated)

You wear large protective pads. Rugby players don't.
I can understand that if you didn't wear these pads and with the amount of contact within your sport it would be dangerous, but all I'm saying is..It's not hard to sprint at another person if you know your safety is guaranteed..

He never said anything about Rugby. He said Americans will never get into soccer. As someone who has played both, I don't think that either rugby or football is more brutal. Sure there aren't any pads, but guys (generally) tackle as opposed to the "trucking" that happens a lot in American football. That's just my opinion though.

I've been tackled in rugby matches by 6'3, 230lb behemoths, and in football matches by 5'8 130lb dudes and I'm 6'1, 240lb and the skinny ****** ****** me up worse.
It had nothing to do with padding really, people try harder when they aren't wearing any here because they know they can hit harder and quicker.
And I've played street football where ****** will dropkick you in the chest for the ball without any padding.

um even in all those pads you are far from completely safe but still rugby is a crazy ass sport that cannot be denied

Sorry, did you mean Rugby, the manliness sport on Earth?

MMA? Put two men in a cage, and see which one walks out with all of his limbs intact? Rugby is badass, but if we're just talking about hard hits with minimal padding, MMA is at the top of that food-chain.
