I just couldn't let Super Sunday pass without posting something about my Giants.

BIG BLUE ALL THE WAY and against all odds.

GO GIANTS!

I thought this was something about "Gman" day... For the record, you should know that everyday is a "G" man day.. :mrgreen:

No doubt, Gman, no doubt :wave:.

For now though, I am enjoying the sweet taste of victory, against all odds. What do you call the team that beats the perfect-season team? Champions. What a game :swow:.

(can you tell I'm a Giants fan?).

Congrats to the Giants.

Condolances to the Patriots.

I too was happy to see the Giants win. There's nothing more satisfying than to kill off the "perfect team" in the one game that rips their perfect season to shreds.

However, I could really careless about the game of American football and it's whole 12 minutes of actual game play...bunch of pansies!

That's ok, we weren't going for perfection, just a championship :wink:.

Palleease! American football is by far the most grueling, most physically demanding sport there is today, bar none. It has more career-ending injuries than all of professional sports put together. And that's only counting the .01% of the elite players who actually do make it to the NFL. And that 12-minute play time is a crock. Bring on those rugby-playing sissies any day, they will never measure up, suited or not :redcard: (God, I feel so charged up since yesterday :boxing:).

Not a crock...I've timed it myself for one quarter.

I'd put money on any rugby players/Aussie rules football over Am. football players. The fat boys of Am. football couldn't keep up with the more fit and endurance of the rugby types. First hit...and the Am. would have to go to their bench of the hundreds of players to replace them. Special teams...my ascot.

I guess that's why NFL games are now being played in Europe. I don't see any rugby games coming to the U.S., do you?

The point is not which is more popular (depends on your location) but it's stupidity in actual play time and general waste.

12 minutes of actual game time x 16 games per season = 3.2 hours of play per year. 16 games per season? :redcard:
Oh Puh-leeze...and you're ready to :boxing: over this game? y:-? :shakehead: :sleep: It's a miracle they normally play through rain and snow...

wow now you depressed me, the money they make for the time put in........ wow as for what is a more difficult sport, well comparing the 2 is like comparing apples and oranges.

Americans have to suit up due to they average 250 lb a player fat or muscle when you get run over by that freight train you need something to protect you.

I do like rugby also, very interesting game, much endurance is needed. Players on the whole are much smaller, padding is not needed as much (some of them do need a muzzle due to biting)

But if you back me in to a corner, I will go with Football That would be REAL football not soccer.

You obviously haven't seen rugby league played here in Australia. The best way I could explain it is American football without all the padding and armor, replacement of throwing and catching the ball with more tackling and running with the ball = rugby league.
