What impressed me was that, during the Super Bowl, Jacoby Jones of the Ravens ran a 108 yard return for a touchdown...in 11 seconds. The 100 yard record is 9.63 seconds by Usain Bolt. Jones was running in full padding, carrying a football, and weaving in a less-than-straight line to get around the defenders. And yet he cleared the entire field in just 11 seconds.

Criticize American football all you want, but you can't say that they aren't proper athletes.

yards and meters aren't the same thing... 1 yard is .9144 meters, the time is still impressive but more realistic.

Everyone saying 100 meter... 108.5 yards (and officially only 108) is 99.2/98.8 meters.
Combined with the fact he had to cut across the field (zigzag, not straight across), juke twice (which slows you down) and was weighed down by gear weighing an average of 15lbs (6.8kg) adds up to get over yourself.

that wasn't that point it was just pointing out that rugby is more dangerous and in general the people who play it are tougher.

Usai Bolt ran 100 _ METERS_ this is equal to 328 feet
100 yards is 300 feet, therefore one 100 meters is about 9 yards longer, good second or two in there

I checked the math--108 yards ~ 99 meters. 1 meter difference. AND he wasn't going in a straight line for a good portion of the field.

So still impressive.

It feels like rugby players have some compensation issues. They never seem to miss out on an opportunity to criticize American Football, whereas our fans just don't really give a ****. I've never seen a fan of football start randomly talking about rugby until a rugby fan brings it up.
