If the clock strikes midnight on March 4 and unfortunately there is no CBA deal. There is no football. Probably one of the worst things that could happen to the year 2011. Whether or not who's fault it is *cough Rodger Goodell and pals*, what would you do for a year without football? Oh, and dying isn't an option.
Goodell's official statement: "Sorry I'm such a douche"
Personally, I would watch a lot more Rugby. Although Rugby isn't as popular as Football, Baseball, Hokey, or Basketball, it is often on T.V. Rugby is a sport of skill, speed, spacial awareness, contact, and brute strength. These things also are key parts of football as well. I have spent 6 years playing rugby and I am currently playing still. My position is Lock (the people who are the second row in the scrum), however I can play all of the forward positions(the big and sometimes slow guys who participate in the scrum). My favorite teams are Ireland, USA, and the All Blacks. I like football more because it's a lot easier to follow, and every game is important. In rugby, it isn't super exciting till the World Cup or other tournaments. Most of the Rugby seasons are just test matches, kinda like pre-season, they don't count, but at least they take them seriously. I also think that if there is no football Rugby and other small sports will grow within the United States. But I'd rather see a Eagles game every Sunday.
So what would you do BGN?
P.S. I'm not going to start a debate about which is more manly, rugby or football. But, I'd like to see some of those head to head hits happen without pads and helmets like in Rubgy, oh yeah it wouldn't.
