I found this on You Tube. I realize this isn't the best rugby group but also not the hardest hitter in the NFL. However, the Rugby hit was 1,600 LBS of force compared to the NFL players 4807 LBS of force or like being in a 35 MPH car accident. As the Video says Rugby players have those type of hits more often but football hits are harder

How much of the force is absorbed by the padding on both ends ? Padding vs person or padded person vs padded person ? People will hit harder if they know they themselves have a cushion.

Do you think soccer players would be able to withstand the physical toll football takes?

Different types of athletes, different sports. Both are legit, both can be enjoyed.

Pads or no pads it's almost triple the amount of force. However I will refuse to say Rugby guys aren't tough or the sport isn't as demanding as football because it is.

Just so everyone is aware, this thread was started by a troll who was actually a soccer fan that wanted to start a bunch of **** and has since been banned from the forum. This could go back and forth all day long with no resolution.

So more or less this is your point. NFL players wear pads so they hit harder rugby players don wear pads so they don't hit as hard. Lets think about this, if your wearing a motorcycle helmet and are in a 10 MPH crash or 35 MPH crash which will hurt more? which is more 4500 LBS or force or 1600 LBS of force? Simple question

Ha, an NFL player versus some club guys from a team that doesn't even play in the nation's top amateur level...
