American Football is more violent than rugby because in American football you have 22 players crashing into each other while in rugby, except in a scrum, you only have people going after one player.
Rugby is younger than football.
yess of course

Because Football pulls in alot more money than Rugby. More people pay to watch it on TV, they get higher attendances for matches, meaning bigger sponsorship deals, sell more merchandise and basically more people are interested in football & watch it.
Both Rugby League and Rugby Union, gaelic football, croquet, hurling, ladies football, camogie
Rugby is a complete contact sport. A tackle in football is supposed to be contact free where in rugby, fully body contact is required, the players are expected to use their body as a battering ram (especially the forwards) - the rucking is done with the feet which means that there is high chance of injury. Rugby players don't wear protection like football players, therefore are much more vulnerable to injuries and concussions. Rugby is a much more continuous than football which has much more stoppages, altough some of the hits of football are quite hard, but everytime some one is tackled the game stops. Look at the rugby scrum, which is much more physical than a ruck.
Because it's a different sport

The game of rugby is most similar to the American game of football. In both games there is a ball, running with the ball, and kicking the ball. Rugby is played in more nations than is American style football. Rugby is, however, a sport played in most US colleges & universities.
Rugby - Little padding, longer studs tackling and not barging great players and excellent social life - what more could you ask for
Rugby Union is more widely known and popular worldwide, however in certain countries, Rugby league seems to atract more media attention ie. the broadcast of NRL games on ch 9 or WIN in Australia. Internationally, Rugby Union is arguably the world's sport other than football or soccer
if you were a true football fan you would know that NFl is better than rugby the reason is because its more popular,the players are better and every player in the NFL is famoius and gets paid more
The answer is probably not 100% clear. In football the players wear helmets and other protective equipment, but as a result, they tend to hit far harder than they do in Rugby (either Rugby Union or Rugby League). Some evidence from U.S. High School teams suggests a lower injury rate for Rugby, though it could simply be that Rugby is on its best behavior since it is a fringe sport in the USA.
At the moment,cricket is more popular than rugby.
Answer. Gridiron has less contact than rugby union or league. It is a more basic one dimensional sport designed for lesser athletes who struggled at Football or rugby union/league. ----------------------- Rugby,we don't need to wear all that padding to play a full on contact sport,same as rugby league,full on contact
Rugby Union is alot bigger everywhere. The only places they seem to play it is Australia and northern England. Rugby union is a much better sport anyway. Rugby Union is more popular than Rugby League because Rugby Union is much older than League. Rugby Union players get much more than League players and union is played in more places than league. I recon League is much better than union.
It isn't. People think it is because when the people show the football pitch, it looks bigger. When it's the rugby pitch they show it at the side so it looks smaller than a football pitch. From :)
If you are referring to soccer then as yet its not quite. However, there are huge changes in the fan base as more people look to the game from a player and fan perspective.
Rugby player but there are more minor injuries like ankle rolls, sprains, and pulls, but football players receive more serious injuries like breaks and season enders. Both sports receive their fair share of concussions and bruises. They are contact sports. Crap happens. When these things stop happening the sports are gonna disappear because people watch these sports for the contact and injury. So no football players do not get injured more than rugby players and vise versa. I play both sports and watch both sports. This is just an opinion, but I believe it is fairly accurate
