Oh come on! You of all people? How many American Footballers have had their careers ended due to injury? They don't head the ball, they don't have to contend with the kind of tackles soccer players do. Full contact sport? Tell that to someone who's been chopped down in the box, has to be stretchered off and is out for months, maybe a season.

And Frown, I wasn't saying AF are pussies, but comparing the two and saying that soccer is safer just does not sound right to me.
