You should go to the game...I heard ticket prices are down about 40% this year. The most expensive on Stubhub is $9995 unless you want a luxury suite. They are going from $14,710 to $237,508 (16 people).

I don't even like football but if you get the $237,508 suite, I'll go to the game with you. :beer:

Well Dan, I think I'll just stick with the NFL experience, it's a lot cheaper ($20.) But if I decide to splurge for the suite, I'll give you a shout Dan.... :D

I am more of a NASCAR fan. Don't spend much time watching football. I have played Australian rules football. :shock: I think I will stick to American football. :D Australian rules is pretty rough. Probably much like NZ.

My last post about "rules" reminded me of something I saw on TV several years ago.

Late one night, my wife and I were flipping channels to find something interesting to watch. We came across Major League Indoor LaCrosse, something neither of us had ever seen. After watching for a few minutes it became evident that this "sport" had absolutely no rules. Players were beating the dickens out of each other...fists, sticks, whatever...it was complete mayhem.

We kept watching and soon play was stopped for a penalty. We both thought someone must have "lost their head" or at least an arm or eye. When the referee announced the offense, it was, are you ready for this, SHOVING!!!

We couldn't believe it. Beating your opponent to a pulp is fair game, but don't push him.

Yes Thom, I have seen the "All Blacks" play. It is rare because rugby isn't a sport here that is readily available on TV. I would love to watch a rugby game over American Football any day!

Thom,

It was right around 2000, while I was in college, that I caught a few games. One of them was against England (NZ crushed them). I think another might have been against Ireland but I am not sure.

Either way, I was playing rugby in college and being that rugby is not a big sport in high school, it was all new to me. I came from playing soccer and I had no clue about this crazy sport where they don't wear any pads. Watching the "All Blacks" and any game I could find was a big help. What a game! The comradery amongst those who play rugby is like nothing I have ever seen with any other sport.
