Friday Funnies - Czech rugby advert, 'Football is for girls'

Friday Funnies - Football is for...

As we all know, Rugby's appeal has meant that it's a far reaching and much played sport all over the globe. While some may think that it's only the 'traditional' nations that have a strong rugby culture, the reality is that many countries around the world not only play rugby, but in fact love and live for the sport.

There's not a day that goes by that I don't receive an email from a fan in a non-powerhouse rugby country. From Chile to Kazakhstan, through the power of the internet, we're reaching new fans every day, spreading the rugby love and hoping that by doing our bit, we're encouraging new players to take up the game and get involved, no matter if you're in England or Albania.

So while certain other sports will always dominate global numbers because of a number of factors, rugby fans and players will always have pride in knowing that the sport we love is generally played with honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship. Three key aspects that are perhaps missing elsewhere.

This funny rugby advert from the Czech Republic has a little dig at another sport that some of us may also be fans of, but surely acknowledge that all is not right in the way it's played at times.

Now updated with the English version

Damn right! There's another video like this one in youtube, it's called "Rugby vs. Soccer". It's a comparison between the 2006 Football World Cup and the 2003 Rugby World Cup. Just watch it, it's so good

I did for about 15 years. Spent time coaching and reffing. Now I'm a dad and go to school and work full time so I don't have time to be involved but still watch when I can (which is difficult here in the US). While playing I dislocated my shoulder, broke several fingers and my nose (Not to mention literally countless cuts, bruises, strains and sprains) and did not leave or miss a match due to injury once in my career. What's your point?

So just to clarify, as far as rugby dump is concerned rugby is no place for women, and calling men 'girls' is an excitable insult?
