    What's a rougher sport.

    I have to get the question out into the world. What's the tougher sport as in most violent and most likely to get injured and which player would win in a fight. Generally, which is the most brutal overall. Hockey or football. I think its definitely hockey.

    For sure.

    ^Yeah, I'm that biased.^

    Time to here your thoughts.

    Edit: I understand that rugby is a rough sport. But rugby isn't what this debate is about. Try to refrain from comments like, "Rugby's the roughest all the way!" which have nothing to do with the actual debate.

    Also, I am not liking the comments like, "Hockey players are just brainless idiots slipping and sliding around the ice." Skating is hard and its even harder staying on your feet when 250 lbs. players are colliding with you at 30mph. It requires great skill. Please stop these comments.

    Which is the rougher sport? My opinion

    Not ice hockey, I can tell you that just based on the definition, the video you showed was a bunch of morons sliding around on ice skates who wouldn't know a fair game if it bit them in the arse.

    Sport requires rules, and fairness, and sportsmanship, your demonstration of ice hockey was merely thuggish behaviour that has no place within the definition.

    Chess would be the roughest sport if people started shooting each other in matches.

    I agree chess would be the most dangerous sport if they started shooting each other. But they don't, so it isn't. Hockey is (in my opinion).

    I am not saying that I don't agree with the sportsmanship thuggish behavior thing because I do agree. It shouldn't be in the game at all. But it is, and I think that is why hockey is the roughest game.

    Also, the question wasn't if hockey was a sportsman like game. It was if hockey was rougher than football. I will highly respect your reply to that question.

    Re: What's a rougher sport.

    Which football are you speaking of?

    [tn=300:u363mj15]http://eslpod.com/eslpod_blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/sports_item_american_football.jpg[/tn:u363mj15]

    or

    [tn=300:u363mj15]http://wellesley.dosportseasy.com/icons/Indoor%20Soccer.jpg[/tn:u363mj15]

    If it's the first, football seems more brutal to me.
    Sure, there's pads and protection but people still get more messed up from what I've seen.

    The first one is the one I'm talking about.

    The reason people get more messed up in football than in hockey is because they take little hits all the time. Especially the linemen. Little hits over a long period of time will make people get messed up. However, I think hockey is more brutal because they take massive checks that do terrible damage, not little hits over a period of ten years.

    I wouldn't want to play football from what I've heard has happened to some guys though.

    Edit:

    Boxing and MMA are both rough possibly rougher than hockey and football. But the question is not the roughest sport, it is the rougher sport.

    Football. Hockey is just people sliding around on skates and running into each other. People say that hockey is rough because of the fights that break out, but any sport would be rough if fights break out. In hockey your goal is to get the puck somewhere, and sometimes you have to shove someone out of the way. Football, its often a giant brawl in the middle of the field trying to open up a path for someone to run the ball. Also tackles in football are way more severe than checks in hockey.

    Re: What's a rougher sport.

    Did you make a thread to then bash everyone's opinions on the subject you questioned?

    In my opinion, "football" (rugby) is far rougher. The idea is to bash other players out of the way to get your goal, more so in ice hockey at least.

    That is only if you're restricting yourself to those two sports.
