Each injury has to do with their abilities.
I pitched with a blister and it sucks when it pops. Also throwing a ball with a jammed finger isn't fun either. I never had to turf but i know it affects the running ability.

This is all in one go, mind you. He had one ******* testicle hanging out of his scrotum,
so they stitched it up and he kept playing. ******* rugby, dude.

I had a deputy head teacher at my school that played rugby semi professionally as a prop, during one game and slowly over the course of the match his white shorts turned red but no one makes a big deal of it. But after the match he disappears and returns to the after match dinner after an hour. Turns out someone tore his scrotum open in a scrum and had to get them tucked back in and stitched at the hospital. This is also the same guy (67 years old by the way) that speared someone off a motorbike because they were ruining the pitch which no one was going to play on for a couple of months.

During one of the games he referee'd for us I dislocated my finger, he jammed it back into place, poured water on it while saying "you feel that boy, that's pain, that's weakness leaving the body." Mad welsh bastard.

and play what? rugby or football? they are similar but very different. obviously u cant expect a basketball player to play hockey at the level of a hockey player even though the sports are similar. american football players are probably on the same or similar level of physical fitness as a rugby team. its just a different sport.

If you played American football without equipment, you'd be breaking a lot more bones than you would in rugby. God awful sport, but American football is all about impact. Rugby's just rough.

I guess no one blindsided blocked you, which IIRC is illegal in rugby. Plus were obviously weren't leading with your head for big hits. Don't get me wrong I agree rugby is a more manly sport, but football has way more body collisions then rugby. Even if you don't have possession of the ball in football you're still most likely making physical contact and block/blocked every play. (American football, in case everyone else in the world couldn't tell) College level sports is at a way different level than professional as well, so I guess you guys were all tiny and couldn't hit each other that hard.

take away the pads.. and they wouldn't be making the same contact. Running full tilt into a guy hurts you a ******** more when you're not wearing pads. I bet in a football game with no pads, the rugby team's defence would beamazingly better than a football team's.

I play both, and in rugby you actually have to wrap and tackle, and take knees to the face in order to get low enough for it. In football you run into them at full speed and the momentum takes them down without either player getting too hurt a lot of the time.

TL;DR take away the football layer's pads and the impacts wouldn't be a big factor anymore.

ya i guess if ur talking a tiny ass running back, impacts will be huge in football because blocking is key in that game. take away pads and u just have huge guys injuring each other. rugby defense is different than football defense anyway you cant compare the two honestly. idk what football games u watch where the tacklers dont always wrap up. maybe on kickoffs, or big linebackers/safeties on wide recievers/running backs that are small. if your skilled and have the ball, you won't be taken down by impact if they don't wrap up. look at adrian peterson, or calvin johnson, or jason witten. if your big, impact wont take you down unless its below the knees. but that happens in rugby too. obviously without pads football wouldnt work, there are already **** tons of injuries with them. without them everyone would be broken.

Blister--can't throw at his best. It would be better for the team to take him out
Finger Jam--can't dribble or shoot the ball at his best. It would be better for the team to take him out.
Toe Turf--can't run at his best. It would be better for the team to take him out
Slapshot to ********** I'm bleeding. It doesn't affect my play though. It would not be best for the team to take him out.

What do you know. There is a reason for this.

Ryan Kesler, centerman on the Vancouver Canucks. Played through the entire second half of last season with a badly torn shoulder labrum. Couldn't play at his best but he didn't give a damn and didn't stop until the Canucks were eliminated from the playoffs and he got surgery to fix it. The surgery was in May and he is still hasn't been cleared to play by team physicians.

That said, Kesler should have sat out during the season then; he's destroying his body with his style of play.

Also, a slapshot to the face is a 3 inch wide disc of vulcanized rubber sent flying at 80-100mph directly into your nose. In Stamkos' case he was in the locker room for five minutes while the team doctor cleaned him up and they found a helmet with a cage for him to wear then he was back out on the ice.

You act like professional players always choose to not play when injured. Demarcus ware played through many injuries. Most American football players would choose to play with a concussion then be taken out and possibly lose their job as a starter. Hell I bet most professional athletes would play injured if they could. Professional sports is a very cut throat profession, no players wants to sit injured cuz they might lose their job. If it was their choice, I bet most would choose to play through injuries, but the coaches make the decisions, that's why they exist.

Mostly the decisions are made by doctors, especially in the case of concussions. I can understand wanting to play through injuries, but concussions are not to be ****** with. Second impact syndrome can leave you with the cognitive functions of a 4 year old for the rest of your life. Miss a season, or miss your entire adult life? Pretty easy choice to me.

They have been taking major precautions towards concussions though. So you most likely won't be able to play if you suffer a concussion, but a couple years back and they didn't check for that after brutal head hits. Players would lie and say they are fine to get back in the game. Competitiveness sometimes causes people to make an unhealthy decision for that moment of fame and glory.

Football players believe their career is their life. Someone starting over them is like dying in their minds. You don't reach professional sports, typically, when you aren't tough or able to play through lots of pain. I speak of American football because that's the sport I pay attention to the most. Remember only 16 games in a regular season for them so being out four weeks is 1/4th of your job.

Yeah I know. Personally I would have no problem being a back up. Get paid millions of dollars to play a couple preseason games, and sit on the sidelines with minimal risk? Sign me up.

Not that I would strive to be 2nd string, but I sure as **** wouldn't complain about it.

It is more then just bleeding. it can break bones and do serious brain injury. and the only way you could prove your point was if you found a time when a pitcher was hit in the face by a ball that was just fit at full force. that would be comparable, nothing else really comes close.

So if a professional hockey player slapped a puck and it hit you right in the face, it wouldn't affect how you play? It's not just bleeding, but I do see your point with the other three

Something I also should have said in the comment is that I am sure any one of those players would keep playing if they broke their nose or took a slapshot the face before their games. Why? Because they can still play at their best.
