Rugby Violence
« on: December 01, 2003, 12:15:01 PM »
hmm dont know how many of you are familiar with rugby...rules etc etc or have ever been live to a game...

...but ya notice that its totally different to football ?

Not mention of violence at matches...no affiliated / unaffiliated gangs

players often speak to the referee as "sir" ...nothing but respect...

...sometime a player will querie a ref...not often ...and mostly he is polietly told who is boss

perfect

...anyway the topic was about rugby violence (lack of) in comparison to the innate violence of football, not which sport you prefer...
...dont know if any of you have studid sociology / psychology / history of sport...but its all there in black and white to explain what / why / how etc etc

To me, Rugby will never be as exciting as football (soccer), because there is little to no creativity involved in rugby. The only thing you can do is fake to pass and sidestep, and from then on its all about speed. Plus, passing wise there is little scope to do anything exciting. The only people who seem to have any creativity are the kickers but even they hardly ever do anything particulary amazing. To me rugby is boring as hell.

The reason they never answer back is because they know the ball will get moved forward, and territory appears to be vital in rugby. In football they introduced the same thing, but to be honest the refs hardly ever use it because they have to book the player to actually do it, and the players have little incentive not to do so because 10 yards for a foul on say the half way line doesn't mean anything really.
