135gk is 298 pounds, pretty fecken close to your 300. Skill sets? What skill do the heavy guys have in football other than beer hugs? A 298 pound guy in rugby has to do everything the other guys are doing, then complete in a scrum against 6 other guys of a similar build. Make the NFL fat guys look like pansies.
That wasn't dishonest, that was fact... the about, i've played both sports, physically and mentally football is easier.
And thank you very much for pointing out THE biggest guy in rugby you can find is still under 300, while the 49ers team (ONE team) has like twelve guys who weigh over 300. But hey, the single biggest guy in all of rugby weighs almost
300 so that's something, right?
"A 298 pound guy in rugby has to do everything the other guys are doing, then complete in a scrum against 6 other guys of a similar build. Make the NFL fat guys look like pansies."
And by "A" 298 pound guy you mean the ONLY 298 pound guy in all of rugby, right? FAT? I assure you the 300+ club gets their weight mostly from muscle. Here is 330 pound Isaac Sopoaga.
I would PAY to see some rugby player call him a pansy.
That wasn't dishonest, that was fact... the next lightest guy being 1kg heavier than Stringer
The next lightest guy in ALL of professional rugby, sure but who cares?
"the 300 pound guys do turds larger than that."
Funny how said "300 pound guys" (plural) when the single biggest guy you could find doesn't even weigh that much.
"Different skill sets but nowhere near to the extreme of American football... the fact that you don't see how arrogant and ignorant that statement is is scary and a good part of the reason why Americans are hated worldwide, the 'we're better than everyone else' mentality."
It's not that it's arrogant it's that you're an insecure little pu**y. Football combines many different positions (jobs) that are completely dissimilar
to a greater extent than all other sports. The kicker who's only job it is to kick the ball through the uprights. The punter who kicks the ball away onto the field to create the best field position possible. The defensive linemen who's job it is go after the quarter back and plug holes for the running back, and the offensive linemen who oppose them. The fast, quick wide receivers who must get separation from the corners and have the hands to catch deep thrown passes in stride. The quarterback and there's more, but you get the point.
I mentioned technical
reasons why football is my favorite sport, which is nothing more than personal preference. I also mentioned I hate baseball, largely considered the most American sport of all.
Why would I care why you hate Americans? From what you've shown you're disingenuous, you're ignorant, you're a frail little pu**y who gets all but hurt over nothing, and you're a bigot. I'm as interested in why you hate Americans as I am why some redneck on Jerry Springer hates black people. Not in the slightest.
PS: I noticed you edited out the part where you tried to claim being a lineman isn't a position that requires skill. I'm glad you realized how stupid a comment it was and edited it out, but too bad you can't recognize the rest of your post is as idiotic. And no, I'm not buying your load of BS about having played both sports.
