WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES BETWEEN RUGBY AND FOOTBALL ?

  1. The similarity

According to some comments of the American football professionals, this sport and rugby have some similarities in features as well as the way to play. The most difference that anyone can realize is the helmet that players will hold whenever they are in a match. There are various American Football codes that participants can easily choose the most suitable one for themself such as Union, League or Assie Rules. Players often change their code in each match to prove the determination to make a successful performance. Will this happen the same with Rugby ?

If you are a fan of both two sports, you may point out some features that represent these sports. Firstly, the fields have the same dimensions and players who want to take part in this sport need to have a good health situation. Besides, the ball which is used in the match should be generated in the same appearance so that players can easily hold it.

  1. Differences

Although Rugby and American Football have the same features, they appear to contain some differences that we can know if we have a long time playing it. The first thing is about protective systems. As you may know, American Football is treated as one of the most dangerous sports up to now. Players have to compete with others by hitting body parts such as legs, shoulders, … Due to the characteristics of each sport, the product should be created suitably to make sure that players will be protected carefully.

Another difference is the speed as well as the method to play well. Rugby is a sport that has thick padding and high protection from the helmet, so players can feel confident to do some strong hits. However, participants have more time to relax after a long day of practicing while American Football has to play continuously for hours. Rugby has two halves of 40 minutes for each part while American Football contains four quarters of 15 minutes. 

  1. The affection of COVID 19 towards both these two sports

As you may know, the United States is the nation that has the highest cases of people who have positive tests for COVID 19. This prevents these two sports from being held in the next time and there is no spectator at all. Some online casinos are created to cater to players’ tastes and the government can make some profit from that. Fans of the two sports feel satisfied with the way bookmakers are doing and hope that it will develop in the near future.

Why does the North American Football League (MLS) have no form of relegation (Part 2)

Before learning about the underlying cause, it’s important to know that all of the remaining 5 professional leagues in North America (American football, Canadian rugby, baseball, basketball, and hockey) do the same.

Therefore, the simple answer to the question in the title is because other leagues in North America are the same.

Why the tournaments in North America are organized like this is so much history. Here we will compare the development of the two oldest leagues in Europe and North America: the Football League and the National League, which is money. to develop the soccer leagues in other European countries and other North American leagues.

Football League (FL) was born in 1888 with 12 teams in central England, competing in a circle format to select champions. Similarly, the National League (NL) was born in 1875 with 8 teams in the northeastern United States and also in a circular format. However, because football in England at that time had developed and had many professional teams, the FL organizers had a rule that allowed the team with the worst performance at the end of the season to be eliminated by votes.

Meanwhile, before the NL was established, there were many other professional baseball leagues that failed. That’s why finding a team to compete is already an achievement, let alone team selection. Also, the pitch conditions for baseball in the late 19th century were generally more difficult than soccer, so there were fewer professional baseball teams than professional soccer teams.

After a season of organizing, realizing the success of FL, the Football Association tournament was born to compete for influence. While in America, the American League was born after that with the same purpose. After a few parallel seasons, both countries witnessed the merger of 2 tournaments. However, due to different conditions as well as history, the way of merging is different.

TWO COLLEGE GAMES HAVE TO BE POSTPONED DUE TO THE OUTBREAK OFF COVID 19

Ass you may probably know, the rapid spreading of the global pandemic whose name is COVID 19 has made a great impact on people’s lives, especially sporting events. The upcoming competition between the Baylor Bears and Houston Cougars had to be postponed to protect the player as well as coaches of each national team. The Baylor feared that they couldn’t control the outbreak of viruses in the community and the Big 12 might be the main reason that led to nonstopping off the coronavirus. Other teams have to support for the host and try their best to create another plan next time. 

Mack B. Rhoades – the header of Baylor Bears shared his feeling about this matter: “ I know that delaying a sporting event makes spectators feel bad, but we should take care of people’s health during the outbreak of COVID 19.

They are treated as considerate people who are willing to do everything to become the winner. Although the game can not be held, they will never lose the team spirit as well as the motivation.”

Why does the North American Football League (MLS) have no form of relegation (Part 1)

As more and more stars flock to the American football league, such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney or Bastian Schweinsteiger. Along with the growth of American football in general, audience interest in this tournament has also increased, even among football fans.

The biggest difference between the North American football tournament and the rest of the world is that there is no promotion and relegation, which means that a team, even if it loses all season, will continue to participate next year. In addition, the best team in the rankings is not the championship team, but the championship is only determined after a series of elimination between the best teams in each region. The following article will show why, as well as interesting in this arrangement.

The first is how the tournament works (according to the 2017 season, since 2018 and 2019 the tournament is expanding, the format is not uniform). 22 teams will be divided into 2 domains (conference). For a club, they will play 2 or 3 matches against a team from the same region (23 matches total), and 1 match against a team from another region (11 games total). After 34 matches, each region selects the top 6 teams to enter the knockout series. Teams from the same region will compete on their own, until there are 2 remaining teams from the two regions competing to choose the champion. This means that the top team after a series of 34 games is unlikely to be the winner that season. And of course, the bottom teams will not be relegated or eliminated from the tournament.

One explanation for the organization above is that the North American football league is new, so there are few investors, so it is necessary to bring the teams to the top league in order to attract capital. And since there are many teams, it is difficult to have a circle match, so it is necessary to have a series of qualifiers. However, this explanation is correct but there is a lack of reason because the Japanese football tournament became professional at the same time as North America (Japan was 1992 and North America was 1994), but now it has maintained relegation between 3 classes. In addition, the North American league system also has the second and third division, only that there is no relegation between classes.

SHOULD PEOPLE TAKE UP AMERICAN FOOTBALL WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG?

According to some professionals, kids that play American football when they are young don’t run the risk of being injured seriously as the older players. According to the research of Thomas Buckley- the header of Delaware University in Neward, the age that one player has the first time with American Football doesn’t relate to the time that an injury is recovered. 

 

Another statement of Buckley said that : “ Our main objective is NCAA football players and the research is about the ability to overcome the injury. There is a comparison between a person who started playing football when he was a little boy and a 25-year-old player. Both of them all had injuries and the result was that they recover at the same time.”

 

“ With only a small test, both players as well as parents can assure that allowing children to play American football in childhood is a suitable decision. However, it is important to make more researches to make sure that the final result is exact.”  He added. “ Although the study about some young players may be interesting, it still doesn’t express the neurological disorders that some footballers are facing up to.” – Shared by Ann McKee, the chairman of VA Boston Healthcare and the header of Boston University.

 

“ In some studies nowadays, the age that you start playing a sport plays an important role in how the disturbances are generated in the whole body. This is also an interesting conclusion which can help parents to decide when their child can play sports.” McKee answered to Medpage Today.

The research about when should player expose to football brought about different results. Some professionals announced that players may be affected much by the big hit of the ball to some particular parts of the body such as: head, shoulder, face, leg,… while others said that playing when we are young won’t impact much on our brain health. It is uncertain to conclude that early age may affect the ability to recover from injury, “ it is up to how serious the pain is and how each player takes care of himself whenever they come up with hardships on the field.” – They explained.

 

In some studies, the minimum age to research is 5 because this is the youngest age when kids build up their dream to be master in playing football. The experts can easily find out some small changes in the body and finally come to the conclusion.
