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

Might be a bit intelligent to think about padding for the game. Teddy Rosavelt while President of the US actually made a plea to the colleges to reform the Nobel American sport of Football so that it wouldn't die. Most of the Universities had outlawed it by the time he got into office because of injuries.

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?

Unless UK goes and dissolves the Monarchy. I keep seeing articles written about how people in UK don't like paying taxes to figure heads. I also recall something about changing the House of Lords from a Hereditary and Life long appointment to electable positions. Iunno. UK has a great economy and has a decent voice for the public in politics, so I really don't see the need for it, but I don't live there.

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. About that. I've played foot ball with only 5 people before. Granted my dad was QB for both sides and there were only two people on a side, but it can happen. It's always better to have more tho. The more the merrier.

Take up boxing then

Yea, I did. I got thrown out of the club for being "too violent." Go figure.
