Are you sure about rugby being less brutal? It's also big guys running into each other, but without the pads.

I'm with you there. Well I enjoy the world cup sometimes, but the Netherlands never really get anywhere (best they did in the past decade or two is a fourth position in the world cup, I believe). And I get sick of these so-called athletes falling over and pretending to be in agonising pain as soon as someone as much as touches their leg or knee.
I also believe soccer has the most violent following. Not all soccer fans are like that obviously, but some people get really violent over "losing" a game that they didn't play in and probably couldn't play in.
I once was in a train with some soccer hooligans... looked like a bunch of monkeys on red bull. Idiots...
And I once lived near a soccer stadium. My then-housemates had lived there longer and actually witnessed a riot going down there. Riot police would come in with buses (and on horses)... they saw one riot police bus accidently deliberately hit a group of hooligans. Go riot police :D

Other than that, both sports are a colossal waste of money and time.
Bam! Wise words!
