R.I.P. XFL

Okay,does any body care that it looks like the XFL is gonna bite the big one??
"Pro" wrestling is one thing but trying to combine that "image" and football?? Give me a break!!
I'll stick with the NFL,(as bad as it can get sometimes!!:D),and College ball any day over the Xtremely F*@ked Up league!!:D:D

the one dj said, "well it's official, toad the wet sprocket broke up."

the other one said, "well all i can say is, so."

i watched one game. it's boring.

I'd rather watch the XFL than the NBA of baseball, or golf, or bowling! And it doesn't compete with the NFL. It is pretty good football though!

I watched half a game a few weeks ago because it was on while we were eating pizza at Curry Village. Boring! I read a quote in the San Jose Mercury News a while back, where Bob Costas said something along the lines of "I always thought someone would combine bad high school football with a strip joint." Pretty much sums up my attitude toward XFL.

Am I mistaken, or does someone actually think this?

RANT MODE ON ! ! !

First of all if Rugby is SOOOO great why do only rugby players watch it?

Secondly, if you're all so tough and hit eachother SOOOO hard, why do you all drink at the clubhouse after matches? Football players fight eachother after games.

Thirdly, has anyone ever heard of the NRL? Didn't think so.

Fourth, In Canada we can bet on sports through Pro-Line, RUGBY IS NOT ONE OF THE SPORTS LISTED ! ! !

Fifth, Anyone who is a non rugby player name a single famous rugby player. Ask the same question to someone who was never a football player.

Sixth, There is a reason why there are WAY more serious injuries in football than in rugby.

Seventh, When was the last time you saw two rugby players run full speed head to head with the intention of inducing severe pain? They ALWAYS, ALWAYS go for the legs...

Eighth, When are you supposed to get a beer during a rugby game on TV, the freekin' game never stops!

Ninth, My head should never be that close to another mans ass.

Tenth, the gear is to keep us alive because we hit with intent to harm.

RANT MODE OFF...

I played 4 years of CIAU (University Level) Ball here in Canada, and have had this debate with all my rugby buddies. But come on, anyone who has played both sports will tell you football is way tougher!!!

BTW the XFL sucks. It's not very well organized and the quality of the play is poor. I enjoy both the CFL and the NFL, but prefer the CFL because those are the guys I played with/against in university and we share the same rules.

Cheers, and no hard feelings Mr Tough Rugby Guy :);):)

actually thats pretty much just here in america.

"my drinking team has a rugby problem" & its always more fun to drink in a bigger crowd

once agian.. not in america

well all u had to do is say canada. everyone in the world knows u r the "special" people. :D
Fifth, Anyone who is a non rugby player name a single famous rugby player. Ask the same question to someone who was never a football player.
why would a football player know a famous rugby player? :D
Sixth, There is a reason why there are WAY more serious injuries in football than in rugby.
actually ive been injured worse playing rugby than football.
Seventh, When was the last time you saw two rugby players run full speed head to head with the intention of inducing severe pain? They ALWAYS, ALWAYS go for the legs...
u wont because in rugby u can not block & if u r tackled the opponent can recover the ball.. so u need to pass before u are hit... but when i go for a tackle u can bet its to lay some hurt down
Eighth, When are you supposed to get a beer during a rugby game on TV, the freekin' game never stops!
u r supposed to have a cooler next to the couch
Ninth, My head should never be that close to another mans ass.
i agree, thats why i play back. but the thing i dont understand is they have an excuse.. but i cant figure why ive frequently heard u like your head up mens asses? :D
Tenth, the gear is to keep us alive because we hit with intent to harm.
the gear must not do its job if their are way more serious injuries in football than rugby.. & besides i like to have a functional body.. i dont think i would like to be arthritic & used up by the time im 35.
RANT MODE OFF...
me too.

both are very tuff.. in different ways. true.. u do hit harder in football but rugby is 2 straight periods of non stop playing w/a small 1/2 time. sometimes just for fun after the game we will play another period or 2 (depends on when happy hour is in relation to the game). rugby is a more refined sport. u go out, beat the sh!t out of each other, then after its all done u r best friends (usually)

i dont really much like watching rugby either.. it is a bit slow on the tube (same as soccer, baseball, & hockey for me) & unless its world play.. who the hell do i root for. but i love to play it.

xfl.. i kinda liked it. not enough to watch it everyweekend but it beats a lot of the crap on at the same time (i dont have cable). & not enough to care if it goes away. i didnt like all the xtra sh!t they tried to put in. i hate wrestling & i saw a lot of the "wrestling flavor" when i watched.

Good answer Speedy LOL :D

I played prop forward for 7 years in UK before quitting ( Back injury) and we toured canada 4 yrs ago - I can understand this misconception from them - they were pussies and missed their helmets too much to go head to head. ;)

I always go with the intention of inducing severe pain:)
High school level rugby extreamly brutal I don't think I've played a game without someone breaking something.


I play scrum half for our B team and I'm a back for the A team. I'm also a wide reciver and a safety. Rugby players are of a diffrent breed. I forget the exact stats but we had something like 2 broken ankles 12 ribs 3 noses 8 teeth and a dislocatated sholder last season. Not one person was out more than 3 weeks. during football season a most of the kids got taken out for the season for little stuff like a kid broke his pointer finger and one was out for the season or for "strained ligimates" in his sholder. I see this trend in other teams and in other levels of play. Thats why i'm not playing football next year.

Now i'm not saying foot ball players are pussies... well... yes i am;)

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH... whateva

BOYS, BOYS, BOYS....Come on now...easy....

You guys...fighting about who hits harder, who gets hurt worse, who is tougher...who SHITS BIGGER....fighting about who has the bigger weenie...RUGBY vs FOOTBALL...(XFL SUCKS)

Don't get me wrong here, I love to watch the NFL and rugby...I have played rugby... but being rolled all over by 300 lb women that looked like men, sticking thier asses in my face wasn't my idea of fun. And, it wasn't rough...and football? Cute guys in tight pants running around slapping eachother on the ass the whole game. Nice to watch. Not very tough, is it?

You know what boys? I'll tell you WHAT. You guys strap on some HOCKEY EQUIP - and meet me on the ice...and we'll see who hits harder, and who gets hurt worse, and who is tougher...play a 10 month season.....and remember, in hockey, there is fighting...so you guys can fight til you are content, ok? And protection is optional -be a MAN, skip the HELMET...maybe the jock? Nah.... keep the helmet.

Oh, and boys... keep your head up. ;)
HHAHHAHHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAA...

P.S.
And I know what you are thinking...female player. OOOOHHHHH must be a 250lb DYKE. WRONG. My dad taught me to play. And I don't play with women, so I play accordingly - and it's not pretty. I am like a sheep thrown to the wolves so I can get mighty bitchy out there. They do NOT take it easy on ME.

You guys cannot tell me football and rugby is rougher than hockey. ;)

ive heard hockey, rugby, and football, which is tougher. i would say none of the three compared to porn.
you see try getting a three way with two 200lbs+ women. its not easy. its very strenous and you can get squashed if your not careful. so dont think that your "pussy" sports are tough until you tried this.
