Seeing the awful theatrics by many so called men who play soccer, everytime an opponent gets within a yard of them to make a tackle & seeing the way men respond to several 15/18 stone blokes putting them on their arse in a Rugby tackle, do you need to ask?
Oh & before you ask, I was a second row, the POWERHOUSE of the scrum!!
I watch Rugby no matter which code but as with anything I'm not any good at playing its shit if anyone asks. This includes a certain spec ops level on MW2, Tennis, Squash and Golf. If I can't do it, its shit.
Like Mr Deputy I like watching football if its a decent game.
Enjoy playing Football as I'm a right back which means I get to boot skinny ponce strikers with bone haircuts into orbit every weekend.
Rugby all the way for me. It's more enjoyable to watch. Though I do recognise the skill of the footballists.
But the whole culture of football turns me off. From the obnoxious players screaming at the ref, taking dives, and acting like overpaid *********. Not to mention a large proportion of the fans who act like animals.
Though I must admit that the current crop of rugby players acting like idiots (Henson and Cipriani for example) are a worry.
Rugby Union...fat blokes pretending to be atheletes, lets face it if you were on the unit team who 'actually' did their annual fitness test? Also helped if the CO/RSM was a rugby man you got fewer bollockin's (though didn't quite work like that for me).
