It all starts today. Any fans of Rugby Union? Who do you cheer for? Who do you think would win?
 
I would love any of the Tri-Nations team to win. Of course, Wallabies would be my favourite.

Why isn't Football called American Rugby that's what I want to know.

Bwhaha, well my team won't win, and its going to send my entire country into a deep and dark depression, again. Good luck to minnow teams. Oh, and yah I be watching too of course! I have some tickets to some games, but I might just give them to friends. IDK, not sure yet. I prefer watching on TV.

Why is football called football anyway, if you add up the time the ball actually spends being hit off someones foot it would accumulate 5 seconds.....if that. I fondly believe that naming it Football was just our way of saying f*ck you soccer, your game is to tiring

Football is just a vague term. Americans/Canadians just don't want to call their game by its proper term: Gridiron.
 
Association Football = Soccer
Rugby Football =  Rugby Union; Rugby League
Australian Football = Footie
and so on.

The reason they call it football is not due to "kicking" but to the fact that the games are played "on foot" not horseback.

@SC: Though they were beaten, the Welsh did a very impressive job against the defending champs, didn't they?

*nods* Definitely. They did awesome. If I were a Boks or England fan It would have been hard to watch... but thing is All Blacks always tend to do were in early stages, but it never matters in the end lol  
 
There have definitely been a lot of games that I thought were closer than they should have been. Makes for more excitement thought i think. The Canadian, Tonga game was intense! Canada did really well. Great game. Watching Scotland/Georgia! right now.

Final is today!

Apparently in the French media it isn't 'Are we gonna win?' It's 'Are we deserved to be here?'

So before it all ends... What should have been the final? Who should win the actual final? Best man of the tournament? Should we bring in a 'Barbarians' system?
