Rugby, football and idiotsWell, here I am again about to have another of my rants. ^_^They say that football is the only sport with hooligans (ya know those half drunk testosterone filled maniacs who start fights over matches) and football players are all dumbasses who can't put half a sentence together. They also say rugby's a good, "traditional", "gentleman's" sport (well thats what they call it at my school anyway) but as I found out, this is a load of bollocks.Just last weekend our school had a rugby match with another school and the players on the other team were as close as you're gonna get to violent, ****y little assholes who think they're the hardest guys on the planet just because they play rugby and can grab someone around the legs and make them fall. You could hear them swearing every half a second and I don't even think they've heard of the word "sportsmanship". My friend, who was on the floor had a guy continually elbowing him in the head just because the guy got angry that my friend had hurt him while bringing him down. This is rugby...you're supposed to get hurt!
A billion chinese can't be wrong - eat rice.
Where the hell was the referee?
Personally i think that that pointy ball is cursed (Why else would so many cruddy games originate from it?) and as such i avoid playing both Footy and Rugby although my brother loves rugby! (
By the way something similiar happened to me.Basicly some freak kept punching me in the guts because i tackled him to get the ball however the difference between the situations is in my case i beat that guy to a bloody pulp after the game!
zeus, which "footy" are you talking about? Soccer (the British call it football) or AFL? In any case, a lot of these contact sports are liable to contain a certain amount of violence - where does the game end and where does fighting begin?An interesting comment that opens a new line of thought. A game where you are supposed to be injured. Where is the world coming to?Originally Posted by Xuy
Schmeag i said i thought the pointy ball was cursed so that rules out soccer (which is easily the best sport out of these three) as for your comment on sport and pain it's easier to think of sport and fighting as linked inseperably thats why sport is so popular at school. (if fighting upfronts banned play legal fighting)

Xuy was talking about soccer and rugby - hence my confusion as to what you were getting at with the "pointy ball" comment. Regarding rugby, of course the idea is to charge the enemy. But the thing is, it is legal to hurt somebody - weird in modern society don't you think? People get taken courts for giving cuffing someone in the ear but in contact sports... the tolerance bar is raised much higher - a case of double standards? Of course, it is legal to kill somebody when two countries are at war...
