I really don't think that this thread is a fair reflection on what most people think. Football is so much better than rugby in every way.

Watching rugby is like watching Tottenham... lets hoof it up the pitch guys and try and win a throw in!

Rugby is a game for people who arent good enough to play football. Hence the 'goal' is made fifty times bigger and you have to run the ball over the line rather than kick it.

Football is a game for people who can't take any contact. Hence they winge when they are touched by an opposing player. Probably down to sexual abuse encountered as a child.

Same here

And I used to be a Chelsea fan but have gone off them now they've tried to buy the premiership...
Yeah I've felt the same way too for much of the time since RA took over. We had a nice little squad last season that was gradually improving...we had Frankie Lampard of course (did you know that he went to a footballing school and got 1 a*, 4a's, 4b's and a c at gcse! not bad for a world class footballer)...but hey...look on the bright side!

Rugby is a game for people who have no skill, no finesse - you are all just a load of big oafs who see the try line and leg it towards it hoping not to get tackled (huh-tackled - call that tackling?). Hence rugby is a crap sport.

In the spirit of Maskall's amazing degree level maths thread...

Rugby = Football - Everything that is good about football.

Define finesse. Very loose, vague statement.

I'm a massive football fan and that's just the way I've been brought up. I watch rugby league when it's on but union doesn't do much for me.

Strange, I thought the majority would say football when I read the thread title.

Cricket is a great game too.

Finesse: clever management, artfulness.

I think even a rugby enthusiast like you will understand which of these two definitions applys.

Rugby is not a sport. It is a glamourous version of british bulldog.

Clever management? lol. Whatever.

Rugby has finesse when trying to penetrate the oppositions defence, and with timing of lineouts, kicking etc. I will not deny that football has finesse, but is ultimately 2-D and... well... boring to be honest.

You obviously have never watched a game of rugby or played it, and therefore don't understand what you are talking about.

How dare you support him? I'll have you know that a kev I am not.

I have watched games of rugby...Often when I'm in prison (and i'm innocent by the why - my 'crimes' are not football/hooligan related) they take me down to the torture chambers where I am forced to watch and analyse a full game. However, sometimes the guards fall asleep (oh - i wonder why? The rugby maybe?) so I am free from the rugby until the next time.

You are all just jumping on the rugby bandwagon.

I prefer Rugby League to football followed by Union.

So thats just to get things straight:

1. RL
2. Football
3. RU

Oh and before anyone gives me any **** about Rugby League being for puffs (yes, someone on here has said that to me) I offer an open invite if anyone wants to come play in a game.

I very much doubt that they will be saying the same thing after that!

Here is my two cents. I used to be a rugby fan who followed football out of idle curiosity... until recently when I discovered watching a Newcastle v Leeds match is akin to going to watch a police line, difference being there were more criminals playing football. Football is a poor excuse for sport, it's money crazy. So few players have any loyalty for their teams mates, their teams. And very few clubs have any degree of loyalty to their players.

Rugby is such a breath of fresh air. You have players putting their bodies on the line, you would never see a rugby team threatening to go on strike due to a player missing a drugs test... mainly because a rugby player has an IQ which puts Rio to shame and wouldn't forget, but thats not the point. Loyalty, guts, bravery, courage, dedication. Words football could try and apply to itself slightly more. In about 5 years England rugby has gone from underachievers to World Champions... eg there is no team better. England football is a chronic embarrasment.

If, God forbid, England football make it to a World Cup Final you can bet that regardless of the outcome, some English football supporters complete lack of intelligence will mean there will be a lot of non-football headlines the following day.

I will not go to another football match. And I'll be a better person for it.

Sale Sharks till I die!
