Here's a thread for all the cats who like American football.  Training camp's about to start, and I'm sure somebody has an opinion on something.

Like Ricky Williams retiring after, like, five seasons, the douche.

Nothing to see here.

>_> if soccer is for wusses, then american football must be for pansies. Rugby, virtually the same game, the players wear no armor. Why is it the american footballers do? o_o;

I actually think American football's a lot more physical than rugby...tackles are far more direct, and there's a whole lot more contact involved. In Rugby, tackles are usually just a case of grabbing the guy round the legs of the waist and pulling him down...you don't have people charging into you head on.

A friend of mine played for the football team in Uni for a while...he reported a long list of injuries ranging from a broken ankle to a dislocated shoulder. Granted, this is because he was a moron tongue.gif

You havn't watched a game in a while then have you Seraphina ?
Watch out for the new Pacific Island team , it hurts just to watch them .

  Of course it's nothing the All Blacks and new team captain  Tana Umanga can't handle . Have you ever seen Tana take a tackle ? or stood on the side lines as a herd of Rugby players literally thunder down the field . It vibrates all the way up through your knees twisting your stomach with excitement and resonates right out through your finger tips . There big fellas, I know, I've fed them .

P.S. sorry Snuffy for hijaking your glorius thread , it wont happen in future , unless of course somebody mentions the Netball  wink2.gif

Nah, just our version tongue.gif Where there's far more running like hell and a whole lot less violence. I would certainly give our teams about five seconds against New Zealand or such like dontgetit.gif

The Niners are a bunch of sissy girls, I wouldn't get my hopes up.  Sorry to be the one to break this to you.

Wow, somebody actually posted on my thread, I was thinking I'd have to start talking to myself.  Now I actually have to know what the hell I'm talking about. dontgetit.gif

I like the Steelers, personally, but I don't see them exactly setting the world on fire either.

Try telling Ray Lewis he's a pansy to his face! tongue.gif . Not that this is appropriate for anything currently going on in the NFL; but I'd like to take this opportunity to say..neener, neener!
Why?
Because I spent years watching my Patriots get stomped, and had to listen to everybody laugh and tell me that they'd never,ever win a Super Bowl in my lifetime. When they actually did it it was almost a sexual experience, I gotta tell ya..
Yeah, that sounds weird. But I live in New England, home of the "close but no cigar" style of sports..
