The Ashes and the Rugby World Cup its great to be English

Considering that Liverpool winning the Euro cup was the biggest slice of luck in football history...I'd say it's nothing to be proud of. It's nothing to be proud of anyway.

Why do you people get like this? Do you think the rest of the world are looking at our country saying "Oooooh they've got really good soccer teams?" and envying us or something? I fail to see why a British soccer club winning a competition means that it's now great to be of the British nationality.

Your patriotism bleeds out as much as your ignorance. Rugby is a sport for players who couldnt make it in the big show.

Having played both sports I have to say, though rugby takes a little more endurance, the level of athletic ability, skill, strength and speed needed to successfully play American football dwarfs that of rugby.

When people criticise the use of pads and helmets (thereby making it easier or wussy) they are showing a lack of knowledge about the game and sports in general.

American Football players are (on average) much larger and stronger than their rugby counterparts. Football is also a sport that is playe with the participant often in full sprint and the collisions of two players in a full sprint is far more brutal than most rugby tackles.

Unfortunately, the addition of helmets and pads has seemed to reduce the player's thoughts of self preservation, and now hit with abandon without personal regard to injury.
