tell me why american football players dress like they are going to warfare and take frequent breaks and real footballers only wear shinguards and play until the end of the game? any sport where you have to redesign the shoes so they don't tear a guys face off but dont make them wear helmets is a lot more hardcore than one where everyone has to put on a hundred pounds of kit just to be brave enough for a tackle or two and while having to take a rest every few minutes. try cardiac arrest and internal hemorrhaging
Seems you don't know a thing about Football, so allow me to explain the rules. Depending on the team, some players take breaks to regain their energy (Never long ones) So that their Subs get in. (Its harder wearing those pads then you would think) So after those individual players take their breaks they get back in to whoop ass. Defensive Linemen like me don't get breaks. Only the running backs and the QB's do. We play all four quarters, there are different positions like Offense and Defense. Linemen do all the hard work, but the running backs take the most damage.
