What impressed me was that, during the Super Bowl, Jacoby Jones of the Ravens ran a 108 yard return for a touchdown...in 11 seconds. The 100 yard record is 9.63 seconds by Usain Bolt. Jones was running in full padding, carrying a football, and weaving in a less-than-straight line to get around the defenders. And yet he cleared the entire field in just 11 seconds.

Criticize American football all you want, but you can't say that they aren't proper athletes.

ok i played american football for 7 years and this is my 2nd year of rugby. both are violent games with amazing athletes, but rugby is a lot "rougher" you get hurt a lot more and it a lot more physically demanding.

It feels like rugby players have some compensation issues. They never seem to miss out on an opportunity to criticize American Football, whereas our fans just don't really give a **** . I've never seen a fan of football start randomly talking about rugby until a rugby fan brings it up.

I cordially invite any who say rugby is for pussies to play blind side flanker (my position) and still say that.

I'll leave a comment about American Football and Rugby. So lets please end the debates about who's better and **** .

American Football: We tackle A LOT as well. In fact, the whole line up for defense team as well as coordinated offense team at the line of scrimage is composed of guards, tackles, ends, centers and even sometimes linebackers, that go in for a straight on head collision. This happens NON-STOP for about 3 hours, and if the scores tied up it can go on for another hour. This results in a lot of stress, wearing-out and even breakages in parts like ankle, knees and legs at the joints. Parts which are required to push back a person. Then there are physical injuries most common for heads and shoulder due to tackles just as it is in ruby.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:American_Football_Positions.svg

Rugby: Now rugby is a bit different as it requires a constant running and physical activity. You end up with different issues that are quite serious as well. Since more people are involved, you tend to have more dislocated/fractures injuries around the hands due to catching the ball so often. And a lot of muscles wearing out at the feet. A person in possession will be able to get hit by more than 1 person more than likely. A game lasts about 2 hours (from what I've heard), but that's 2 hours with little to no breaks.

Nevermind who's tougher, they're different sports from each other IMO. It's like comparing American Football to Hockey and Rugby to Soccer. They're all tough in their own sense, goals, objectives. Rugby's got it's own sets of endurance vs the American Football. Their all gaud damn amazing atheletes

They are two very different games but even one of the hardest men to ever grace a rugby pitch concedes that American Football players hit harder:

Hey, here's a great idea! Let's wear minimum gear, beat the crap out of each other, suffering injuries that could be exponentially lessened by wearing anything with padding.

Then, when we retire, we'll live out painful, short, concussion-filled lives. That's how real men do it!
