    "It teaches you good wholesome American values man, like stealing other peoples land by force and wearing tight pants while you do it!"

    American Superbowl = Loads of annoying breaks in-between the action of expensive Adverts.
    Or
    2 boring Hours of men running around in tight pants with a musical number slapped in the middle like a bad bollywood movie...

    I don't understand why anyone in england vaguely cares about the superbowl... Most intelligent englishmen don't even care about football, why american football is vaguely interesting is beyond me.

    Well you'll be glad to hear that the NFL are playing 1 Fixture a year, in October, for the next 4 years at the Wembley Stadium. ^_^

    And how could anyone prefer NFL to rugby? In rugby they don't wear armour (armor :p), they just break faces and bones and stuff. Rugby team versus NFL would be fun...

    Think the BBC/ITV did something like this 5 years ago as an experiment.

    IIRC:

    Both set of players found the tackling a lot different to get to grips with.
    American football players found Rugby had a lot more running and had problems with the Pass forward rules.
    Rugby players found the pads a bit limiting and the impacts were a lot harder than they were used to.
