Rugby fans are very big on there sport and this is what football started from so I wanted to see how many in here would like to make a objective look at the two sports and talk about which one is better. Obviously NFL is more successful. Players make more money teams make more money ect. Rugby does not have the forward pass but kicking is a much bigger part of the game and the league is talking about getting rid of the extra point. I think the NFL has been a such a success because of the balance of running kicking and passing. However there is a push to make the league a pass first sport. Which may be OK. But I personally think they should change kicking rules all the way across the board make kickers more valuable. Like 30 yard kick be work 3 points 40 yard be worth 4 points 50 worth 5 points ect. It would open up the game to a totally different kind of play. Instead of getting rid of kicking add more. Just a thought. After having some heated conversations with some friends about the two sports it got me thinking. Kicks are exciting to me the suspense of the wait and to see if blocked or made or missed and the other team takes over on downs its a cool part of the game.
