I was a goaltender for a few years....

That's not a "little plastic puk" (us Canadians spell it "puck"....it's made of very hard rubber....when it hits you in the head you see a few stars (back when I played it wasn't wire masks....we had the hard plastic ones)).

As for football...I was a guard on the offense line...I got beat up pretty bad.....it wasn't like kicking a little white & black ball around

As you can see

My lack of terminology proves I know very little of the sport. But, as with all sport, it's far more interesting playing it than watching it.

Canadian football is a bit similar to the american gridiron isn't it?
Perhaps you'd have enjoyed playing Rugby with the New Zealanders... They're bigger and rougher than the footballers... and wear no pads, except for their massive necks!

I still prefer my full-contact Karate, any time of the week!

Canadian Football

They are pretty close > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_American_and_Canadian_football Darryl has a better idea than I do, but he's logged off for the night. That link should show you the differences :)

Think that rugby makes them look like boys in padded suits.

Much the way I think of Tae Kwon Do...

I'll agree with that

I've seen a couple rugby games...they're nasty...rougher than football without any gear...ouch!

My high school experience

by JamesRL In reply to I still

I was one of the yearbook phtographers, so I went to many high school football games. The occasional hard hit but never more than a minute on the field, and then a walk it off. Our school played rugby against the other shools in the district but it was pretty tame too.

Then we had a exchange with a school in Wales, and the rugby teams met up. Four of our players lost consciousness, and one had a broken collarbone. And this was with a team that was staying in our players homes for the duration of their stay. Imagine if they were archrivals.

Yep

And imagine lining up against of a team of Maoris as they're doing the hakka in front of you. Scary stuff.
