There is something called AMERICAN RUGBY. Its called AMERICAN FOOTBALL. Its exactly the same as rugby except they wear big pads and Helmut’s to protect themselves. At least in rugby you get the opportunity to punch people in the face during a scrum (a bit like a line out but more physical) and dig the studs of your boots into the other teams legs. Theres nothing better than rugby running as fast as you can head on with some big bastard knowing one of you is gonna get their ass knocked down

problem of translation,as the foot-ball is a part of the foot
britian regulated football/soccer first and invented the name.

Same with aussies they call it soccer.The only real football is where ya use your feet only, hence the name football.But who really cares they can call it what they like really,who gives a fock.They aint never going to like the sport ANYWAY which is good IMO because the americans would wanna mess with the game,3 points for a goal,widen the goal post 30 feet, have time out for adverts.LOL

here in america we dont give a damn about soccer. its all about the big 3 baby. NFL NBA MLB. here in Kansas City, the Wizards won the American soccer championship or whatever. Nobody gave a damn. It was maybe 60 people in the stands. LOL. so yall play yours we'll play ours.
