Sheesh, you septics are a touchy lot aren't you?

Did you not see the irony signs ( :twisted: and :wink: )?

I know professional American "footballers" are big, (steroid popping?) hard men, but compare the game to either code of rugby and I think you'll agree it's nowhere near as intense.

This is not just my opinion, but is also based on conversations with 3 guys I knew at university who had all been American "football" scholarship holders at university in the states. 1 a Rosebowl winning centre, one quaterback and one linebacker. They all declared themselves shocked by the fitness requirement and intensity of effort required in even a club level game of Rugby Union. To quote the former linebacker, "The same 15 guys on the field for 80 minutes with only a 10 minute break, no pads, no special teams. Wow, that's a crazy sport."
