all sports are different
they all require different skill sets
arguing over which sport is harder is like arguing over whether you should listen to Zeppelin or Hendrix first
I respect the hell out of rugby
I wouldn't do well in that sport (mainly because I don't understand the rules) but they would do just as well at football as I did at rugby

THANK YOU! Someone gets it. All sports are different so there's no way to compare about which is better! Lets just respect that we're alll  talented in our own ways.

I've played rugby, I've played football, and there is a hell of a lot more respect between rugby players and between football players, there is also no time for complaining when you fall over.

You know what they say: “Football is a gentleman’s game played by hooligans, and rugby is a hooligans’ game played by gentlemen"
This I've always found appropriate.

I dont agree with that, I play football, and yes rugby is tough and yes football is tough, but we're both ramming into each other and trying to flatten the other team.

Rugby players call soccer players pussys because their sport doesnt need size. Being big and fast is nothing in soccer if you cant dribble it ( big players usually have poor feet ) .
Rugby is a sport for people who are big only and can run.

Point is, soccer takes skill.

You're wrong there though... I've played rugby for years, in 3 different countries (from moving house) and none of the rugby players I knew go on about how football players are pussies, most rugby players are very respectful.
It's the rugby fans/supporter/wannabes who say the things you're talking about, and the people who say they play rugby to sound hard(tough), but don't.

I don't race, I run for personal fitness, where I run 5 miles 3-4 times a week. I try to keep a pace between 8 and 12 mph, and it's always hard, people can't appreciate it until they are out there doing it.

I guess it depends on motivation, some people will push themselves, and the ones who can't would rather make everyone else feel as ****** as they do.

except most cross country runners are as skinny as half of Auschwitz. They would break in half if they played a contact sport without bulking up and doing different training.

that's like saying:
"except most football players have the physique of a caveman. their lungs would explode if they didn't gradually slim down." neither of those quotes are true, there are bulky guys on the cross country team who have decent speed and excellent endurance, and football players that look like twigs and still play. I.E. most wide receivers.

I did a lot of cross country running while with my old rugby club... I don't know if you know this but, being able to run for a long time is very important in such a game.

I'm a rugby player

But I know that every sport is different and requires a different set of skills. Like, I can't throw an American Football worth ****, and a lot of American football players can't kick a rugby ball worth ****. Just because you play a different sport doesn't make you some sort of king

Football is actually a colloquial term for the most popular sport played on foot that involves a ball in a country.
So this is why Americans call gridiron football, whilst the British call soccer football.
And where I reside, Rugby is the most popular sport that is played on foot that involves a ball.
So this was quite confusing for a few seconds.
But of course, this being the internet, which sport takes the title of football?
Most users are American, but the internet is a British invention (although, to be specific, the internet was a concept proposed by a British scientist who wanted an inter-office method of communication, and is almost certainly made from military tech).
My point is: OP, which sport do you mean by football?

Good question. I often call it American Football on the internet while I call soccer/football one of the two. Then Rugby is just Rugby. The US is too backwards to convert to the metric system or change a name of a sport and it constantly annoys me.

Let's see if we can end the whole pointless football/soccer/American football debate. Football is a term used to refer as any sport that uses one's foot to score a goal; such as any goal in soccer or a field goal/point after in football (I'm American, just bear with me). Even the ancient Romans had a variation of football that resembled rugby. So truly, no sport holds the exclusive right to be called "football", it's just based on the popularity of such sports in whatever country you're in.
