(YouTube)   The USA are kicking ass in the rugby league world cup. What better way to celebrate than have the Wiggles write a song for them?   (youtube.com) divider line 54

We have a league team? I thought america pretty much only played Union.

WTF?

First of all the wiggles are Australian so why would they do this?

Second, I have actually seen the Wiggles live, front row, and that is none of the wiggles (except perhaps the one on the right, it is hard to see his face).

Are the wiggles franchising now and this is some retarded American wiggles?

Me too!

We used to get funny looks when we would break out in the traditional songs at the IRB 7 series (in LA and San Diego).

The Vegas Sevens seems to take it all in stride though.

Three of the originals retired not too long ago and were replaced by the ones in the video. The blue
Wiggle is the last of the originals, kept on to ensure the continuity of the 'brand' to keep the sponsors happy.

Or like games actually controlled by those playing it, rather than those coaching it.

Or enjoy more than six seconds of action at a time.

Or those that don't enjoy continuous commercial breaks.

Or those that like a full game be wrapped up in less than two hours with plenty of time left over to settle the check.

What I want to know is, how come they didn't have a cute chick, or any chick, back when I was watching them with my kid? This version is much more appealing.

The only thing appealing is the length of the game.

Despite the 'continuous action', rugby is very boring.  A Triathlon has continuous action, but also is boring.

Football is a plodding game, but it's filled with complex strategy and amazing athleticism.

Rugby is slightly less plodding, but it's like watching a team full of fullbacks running around.

The USA are doing quite well. Which is a pity as  I lost £25 betting against them.

I'm planning on being there for the next game.

Union is played by mouth breathing, plane pointing, posh boys.

bulok: Probably going to piss off some people but rugby is waaaaaaay better than American football.


10 years ago, I'd have slapped you with my "We're #1" finger. These days, though, sadly you are correct, sir.

Pussified. That is the word to describe NFL football in this day and age. Did you know that over the next off
season, the NFL powers that be are going to deliberate whether or not to pass a rule that says that if you
'taunt' the opposing team while or after making a touchdown, said touchdown will be nullified?

REALLY?

What's next? Why not just stop keeping score altogether? Wouldn't want anybody's feelings getting hurt.
 
2013-11-05 05:21:59 PM
So reading the tables, we've won our group, regardless of the game against Scotland.

And we'll probably have to play Australia in the first round of the playoff bracket.  I suspect I know how that will turn out.

Dan Lyle, who has the unique perspective of someone who captained Bath Rugby and was good enough at football to be offered a contract by the Minnesota Vikings has said that if you give him the second-team All-SEC players the US would kick ass at rugby

FTFY. American football is one of the most boring sports ever televised. It's slow, laboured, and in typical American fashion has more emphasis on rules and regulation than actually PLAYING the game.

I like both League and Union, but the AMNRL/USARL split is a bigger shiatshow than the Aussie Super League war of the 1990's, just without all that FOX Sports money.

That's why this Tomahawks team is filled with non-American citizens.

You basically just used the words "rugby league" and "pure" in the same sentence. That popping noise you just heard was the entire city of Sydney's heads exploding.

The fact that the Tomahawks team that went through qualifying featured American citizens who were born and raised here, only for them to be snubbed from even being considered for the cup roster will only fuel the pissing contest between AMNRL/USARL

As far as my opinion on League itself, they wasted a good opportunity. I can understand the play-the-ball and the limited phases (similar to downs in American football), but when you have a scrum, you're supposed to actually contest possession, not play pattycake. If their scrums were actually like Union scrums, then it'd be more exciting.

You post your "fullbacks" line in almost every rugby thread. Which is ironic because fullbacks in high level Union tend to be very dynamic athletes.
