A question for everyone.
Is rugby an inherently a gay sport or not?
less than wrestling
more than hockey or auto racing
I always thought that rugby was quite a masculine sport...
Much more masculine than soccer
gay, but hyper-manly to help erase stereotypes
SHIT! I had my first poll made and attached to this and it didn't work, it 'timed out' FUCK IT!
lol.. i didn't see what you just wrote
I had to go with the third option because, with the exception of all female naked oil wrestling, pretty much anything can have homoerotic undertones if you look hard enough for it and want to find it.
Though generally speaking it is just a game. Yes, there are men getting dirty and rolling around together and that appeals to me (really? gosh no! ) but the men themselves are not doing it for homoerotic kicks - leastways not the ones I've known.
Do you really think a true homosexual would wear such an ugly outfit? Only a heterosexual man would allow those costumes to touch his body. Clearly rugby is played by straight men and only by them.
yea its pretty much gay.
i mean, the sport itself is rough and all and there are very very tough guys playing it. but from what i can see a majority of these guys also get naked around each other far too often, and generally just do some homoerotic shit with each other.
i know being naked and comfortable around other naked guys doesnt make u gay....but seriously most rugby guys i know/have seen arent really all the straight either
You have stated that the sport of discussion is "Gay Rugby"
which leaves only one probable answer for the poll IMO.
But I guess that was what you intended anyway.:wink:
I lived in France for several years in the 90s, and of all the things I learned about and experienced, none were quite as satisfying as seeing televised rugby matches.
I sat enthralled: all those amazing asses; those incredible big legs; all that hugging and touching. It made wrestling look like fencing in comparison.
It may not be the gayest sport (I think figure skating has a lock on that one), but it's by far the most homoerotic presentation I've ever seen produced by a professional sports team.
Don't know about it being 'Gay' but I don't think Webb Ellis would've lasted 5 minutes at my school picking up a football and deciding to run with it... It's called football because you play it with your feet NOT decide to pick it up and run!!! So in answer I'd say the first 'rugby' player was gay...if that makes any sense!!:tongue:
I agree that rugby is a pleasure to watch even when you have no interest in the sport - but you do realise, I hope, that in all that 'hugging and touching' (aka a scrum) the 'huggers' and the 'touchers' are are biting each others' ears, grabbing each others' bollocks (in the most unpleasant way), kicking, stamping with studs (no, boot studs) and worst of all pushing/pulling down to make the scrum collapse (collapsing the scrum is now illegal and has caused fatal injuries in the past).
Rugby can be a very dangerous game - seldom more so than when they are 'hugging and touching'.
Instantly given me wood. lol
I'll take halfway between Yes and Maybe. Largely beause you don't need to look hard for the overtones. I played in High School... and sufficed to say it was certainly interesting.
taping their ears down w/ the electrical tape or wearing a scrum cap, to keep their ears from getting ripped off. Yeah. It's is a bloody sport.
Almost all the germans that played on the local rugby team in Munich, had an old knee injury by the time they were 40.
Gurl, you did not just diss rugby kit. I swear to God I will snatch you bald if I ever see you. :tongue:
Never thought of it as gay. Maybe if I saw a few more games.
There is a Rugby Club for Big Girl's Blouses.
