INeedAName: PluckYew: INeedAName: My real issue with this is that the last run of the play was sheer luck. The guy who laterals was throwing it someone else when a teammate comes in takes it down the field. It's a fun play, to be sure, but no one knew wtf was going on.no, it was conditioning. Before the end of that play, any NFL'er would be hunched over sucking wind asking when is the huddle?Im going to assume you've never played a sport before. Id rather run a 2:00 800m than have to do 20 40m sprints.Football is all 40m dashes over, and over, and over. Unless you're lucky enough to be an O or D lineman, then you get to spend every play trying to push 360 very angry pounds around the football fieldI have no question that soccer and rugby players are fantastic athletes, but only an ignorant fan would think you're comparing the same sort of physical exertion.
MugzyBrown: And you can see something greatly more athletic and exciting 10 times (at least) in every NFL season.White guys running slowly... fascinating.
Yes please: But that was league, not union, so it hardly counts as rugby at all.
