  1. 1. Rugby or Footy



Recommended Posts

Fact is, football needs more security/police presence because violence is far more likely.

 

 

Ok, so now your downgrading the use of the word on an internet forum. Yet when its used in a football stadium, its an outrage? Sort it out.

 

What is an outrage is having fans shout

 

"Hey tumor-boy!! Why couldn't you have died 3 years ago"

ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC.

 

Makes me laugh at how blinkered football fans can be. Spend a year supporting rugby and you'll never look back.

 

I ask again... are there really metal detectors at football grounds???

I didn't say that at all. You're the one who said football fans comes from 'all walks of life'. I was just wondering what you meant by that?

 

You never wondered you presumed and very poorly I might add

 

 

 

I've been to a few England matches. England v USA, Brazil, Uraguay and a few others a long time ago. Club wise I've been to 5 Chelsea matches, v Arsenal, Spurs twice, Liverpool and I can't remember the other. And a few others years ago when I've been given a free ticket..

 

I'm sorry but the likelyhood is that at an International Game against those teams, you would of never experienced vioilence, I cannot see it at all.

 

And Going to Chelsea Matches V Arsenal, are you suprised? Major Rivals, Alot of Passion it's going to be one hell of an atmosphere.

 

I don't get what you can base your views on rather than what you have heard in the news which is often over-dramatised to add effect anyway.

 

 

 

More people may follow rugby, but a packed stadium is a packed stadium. A football ground and a rugby ground can both hold 15,000 for example, allowing for perfect comparison of crowd behaviour.

 

It isn't down to security it's just down to common sense half the time, you have X amount of people you need X amout of security Personal

We've already had this discusion and its great we are doing it again but...

 

You cannot use sweeping generalizations!

 

If anything, it is just going to undermind your argument.

So what did you mean by all walks of life then?

I'm not sure how you can overdramatisise football brawls involving nailed baseball bats between opposition supporters. Or fights and beatings with police in the stands.

 

 

It isn't down to security it's just down to common sense half the time, you have X amount of people you need X amout of security Personal

 

Agree,

 

X = 12,000 supporters

Y = police presence

 

Rugby X needs 6Y

Football X needs 600Y

I'm not. I'm not calling all football fans violent racist homophobes. I'm saying such attitudes exist in football crowds far more than it should.

You don't need police for rugby crowds. We can behave ourselves.

I think you are being swayed wa too much by the press in this country. Football does a lot of good in the world but it is hardly given its spot in the headlines.

Oh yes you can, ever read the Sunday Tabloids after a fight on a saturday...

 

"Mass Brawl tarnishes Newcastle Match"

 

When in reality it was just two people kicking off...

 

We are hitting a brick wall with you at the moment, and I am struggling for anything to say

 

 

 

 

Agree,

As I said before, there needs to be a certain amount of safety personal, at any public event in proportion to fans.

And do you think we like that? No we don't we don't follow football for this, we follow football for the passion and the pride of your team, I'm not saying this doesn't happn in rugby but It's society's problems that are creeping into football. Not the other way around...

I prefer playing Football , but I HATE HATE HATE the hooliganism that comes with it. People take it way too seriously. In the end, these over paid morons don't care what most of the fans think.

 

Much of that is the same in rugby, except the violence bit. I like going to Rugby games/watching it, but don't like playing it.

 

 

So, Rugby is better IMO.

So you're saying football attracts racists and homophobes. Ok then.

 

 

As I said before, there needs to be a certain amount of safety personal, at any public event in proportion to fans.

 

And what I'M saying is the amount of fans is the same, so you would think the amount of safety personnel sound be the same as well, but it's not.

 

Again, are there really metal detectors at football grounds??

Fuck Off Mate Racists are attracted to anything they like just like a normal person.

 

Racists probably go to Rugby Matches, Cricket matches, not just football, the only reason you hear about in football is because No one really gives a shit about Racism in any other sport.

 

Whats more appealing to the reader

 

Racism in Football

 

Racism in Rugby

Nope, If there are they are used in corportate suites and director boxes.

Why are you resolute in finding any excuse you can to have the same arguments over again? I've heard this shit in 10 different threads, it's boring.

You said "football attracts people from all walks of life" - I asked what you mean by "all walks of life" you said "homophobes, racists".

LMAO, if anyone wants a quick laugh at ignorance, look no further.

Racism in Football

 

Racism in Rugby

 

The latter for me, but it doesn't happen, hence why you don't read news articles about it.

Just don't. We had to play it at school. (I got to an all-boys private school)

 

I just never enjoyed it. I like playing Football and Hockey a lot more.

It's true though The media will always opt for Racism in Football.

 

I refuse to believe Racism doesn't happen elsewhere, it just isn't reported.

Passion? Put your passion to good use then, go do something constructive with it.

 

I'd like to get this frustration out in the scrum but sadly it's the off season.

I don't only want to argue! But when people accuse rugby fans of not having any passion it just mildly pisses me off.

Ant and I seem to be exactly the same yet opposite at the same time. We both live our sport, him football, me rugby.

 

I've probably been too harsh belittlling football rather than talking up rugby on this thread (the latter wouldn't be hard).

 

I bet Takeo started this thread knowing it would cause arguments ;)

I'd go along with that too, I was brought up with Football in my roots, I grew up on "Winslow Street" right next to Goodison Park. I was brought up a red and it is what I am today.

 

I never woke up and decided I liked football, It was always hammered into me.

I think by just digging into football your actually being a bit condsending to people who love the sport and don't have anything to do with the instances you mentioned.

If you just talked up rugby, people would be much more inclined to try and get into to it more rather than defend their views.

 

...naughty, naughty Takeo...:indeed:
