When was the last time you heard of someone breaking thier hip while playing rugby? Sapp from Tampa Bay hit a Green Bay lineman above the waist and broke the Packer's hip. Donald Driver seperatted his shoulder earlier in the season, and from catching a pass from Bret Favre, his shoulder was reseperatted. Pads are used to minimize injuries and to prevent death.

Can't think of hip injuries but you get a fair amount of injuries in rugby none the less - broken bones aplenty, and there have been a few broken necks in the history of the sport

I'd have to say hunting would be "The True Sport of Kings." Or maybe wenching.....

It's horse racing that's known as the sport of kings in England, but both prince harry and william are football (not American Football!) fans so you could justify calling it the game of future kings?

Um... huh? Have you ever been to the states? It's the single most beloved game in the midwest. I grew up on football. I used to hate watching the televised games because I wanted to play. My first game was when I was six. We played football durring recess. Granted tag, but the sisters would have killed us if we had been tackleing each other on asphault. Every day for 8 years we played football. I got into high school and joined the football team. My friends and I still get together atleast six times a year to play football even though we live in six different states and three of our number our stationed over seas in the military.

I think the point is that all you need to play a game of football is a ball and more than about 5 people

Um.. yea, you see, soccer and football were evolving at the same time from the same game in the states. The games were actually interchangable for a long time. It wasn't until Purdue standarized the rules for football and another group standarized the rules for association football that there grew to be a need for seperate names for the same game. With different rules there came to be needed different names, so association football was bastardized to soccer.

Similar in England, but became rugby and football
