It would become a law of men without those technicalities . I hate to see the results some times

The Wall game was played at Eton, whilst rugby is said to have originated at Rugby School (in Warwickshire) around 1823 when William Webb Ellis is reputed to have picked up the ball and run. Although the story is probably apocryphal, the Rugby World Cup Trophy is named the Webb Ellis Trophy. so it has some credence.
Football (to use the generic term - back then there was no differentiation between soccer and rugby) was banned by a number of monarchs down the ages because of its violent nature.
To be honest, no one is sure exactly where rugby originated - personally, I like the Webb Ellis story, but as an historian have to accept it is probably more myth than reality.

Tony in American football they were pads and helmets which soon become weapons and we have more serious injury than in Rugby :)

I played touch US Footballl years ago when I worked summer camp over there. The main problem for the people playing it properly is that the body armour does not cover knee joints, which get wrecked by being hit so often by shoulder pads. Some of my compatriots would argue that rugby players are tougher because they don't have any protection. Not so sure myself - wouldn't like to tangle with a professional from either on a dark night!!

<quoted text>the truth is, I would grow bored if all anyone talked about was the weather and their pets (no offense to all you pet lovers, I have one too!). It is the fact that a variety of things come up, including word events and politics that keeps me coming back.
While my dogs are cute and adorable (yours is way too cute!!), I realize there's only so much oohing & ahing the rest if you can take.....they are after all--- my dogs!

Tony, I am thinkinking you are a vet from the Falklands. I may be wrong... However you have a Sean Connery attitude! Very nice in the kitchen. Tell me how close I am to you from one vet to another.
Peace be with all!

<quoted text>Pleasant as it is to talk about the weather and pets, and
you will find me doing so perhaps too much, lol, I agree
that there is so much more of interest to discuss as we
always did in the kitchen. I like a bit of fun as much as the
next person, but would hate to bury my head in the sand as to
what is happening in the world..and who better to discuss it with
that those on here, I mean it, we usually come to a satisfactory
understanding.
Me, I'm not a sports minded person so I just kick back and listen to those of you who are. I would nothing to contribute. We had a March Madness pool chart in the CU branch ----- I thought it was a football pool!!!

I'm happy to just learn something and listen to you rugby fans discuss the weekend game.

....now back to my beagle's latest antics.........

Far more examples to prove that rumor. A run of the mill black man accused if molesting young children; a black man accused of killing his white ex wife.....you really think those poor middle class defendants would have gotten acquitted????

Alas I disagree. The law is way too stacked in favor of the defendant to permit them to 'get off' on a technicality.

Ditto Duh bud! I live vicariously through your sailing stories and other bits. Love the ocean and love boats. Not much opportunity to sail as it were and its not like I'm an experienced sailor, I just enjoy it.
