Most Dangerous Sports
« see full list
I've played rugby for 8 years and I have have my face split open teeth put through my cheeks and lips, sprained ribs dislocated thumbs and shoulder, broken nose (twice) ligament damage in my knee elbow sholder and neck, knocked out roughly 5 times, concussions, muscle tear, and some bruises and cuts, but I still love playing :D because I have done worse injuries to other by running into them when crash balling such as beaking their jaw, other their nose, others I knocked out their teeth, I've broken peoples ribs I've broken peoples legs and wrists
id say this sport should be number one in the list and its more tough in europe than south africa in my opinion
How is rugby
Under football? Football is awesome but rugby is pleasure without protection... Plus like soccer wich is real futbol! You gotta be fit unlike those pregnant men you call linemen. I'm from america and I played american football before even hearing of rugby, and at the time I thought they wer the best. Then mybcousin introduced me to rugby and that's when I realized football players kinda gay. Pads time forward passing means more yards gained each time without much effort. Now I do wana say something though old american football back when it was 1st made... That's a hard 1
Rugby is seriously dangerous. If the game is played correctly, injuries are minimized; but of course accidents occur. There are no pads like american football, and play does not stop nearly as often. Each scrum pack can be as heavy as 920kg... now take two packs thumping and pushing against each other, and consider the pressures on the players in the middle of the scrum... it is seriously hardcore. Tackles, loose rucks, mauls... it can be gory!
There is no way that soccer etc is anywhere near the same level of risk as Rugby.
This list is a joke! No way can football (soccer) be more dangerous than rugby. As for American football where the players are are so padded up they look like they're wearing pillows under their shirts, it should be relegated to the softer sports. Aussie rules football has got to be more dangerous than soccer so why is that so low down the list? In rugby as in Aussie rules, the toughness of the sport should be recognised properly and not ignored by the fans of 'soft' sports.
The most deadly moment in sports comes in Rugby, my dad played in a game where a scrum collapsed and snapped the hookers neck... Now tell me its not a dangerous sport...
And broken bones? You can play a game with out em? Last game our full back shattered his nose and has to get surgery for a deviated septum...
This list is screwed up, especially if Rugby league with non contested scrums and rucks is more dangerous than rugby...
I come from South Africa. Rugby here is way more tough than in Europe and the USA. It's nothing like NFL, because its meant for men to play. Rugby is a much more quick paced and rough and there are no pads needed because we ain't girls.
I am a 19 yr old woman and I play rugby. Right now, I am sitting on the couch with 2 broken legs because of a bad tackle in the last game where someone landed on my legs wrong. How is anything more dangerous than football without padding? Rugby has more skill associated with it, less breaks, and rough since it doesn't ALLOW padding. The only protection you have is a mouth guard... This should be #1!
It has no pads if your hit you can break around 3 to 5 ribs or more!
This site is a bit ridiculous. You have base jumping and mountaineering way behind cheerleading... And how the hell is cheerleading more dangerous than gymnastics? IT'S A DUMBED DOWN COMMERCIALIZED VERSION of gymnastics... This list is a HUGE FAIL. Please rework it. This is a huge joke.
It's like American RUles football, with barely any stopages, and you don't wear pads. I play it, and it is one of the most physically demanding sports on Earth. I'm a State Champion Martial Arts fighter, and I find that easier than a casual game of Rugby Union between schools...
This sport is way more Dangerous than Rugby League & Soccer
In rugby you take one big hit you can break ribs or even wrists, it's much tougher than soccer who lay on the ground fake crying to get a penalty, rugby is the real mans sport we get a big hit we get straight back up, not out or the game
Rugby union is more violent than anything else on here to be honest I have had more injuries playing it that any other sport I have done over the years and I have done quiet a few to be honest :)
I play rugby and there is at least one serious injury every game and the captain of our team broke his face in the first 2 minutes of a match. Football is for weak girls, rugby is for real men
If a scrum collapses you can break your neck, and if you tackle hard enough you can break not only someones ribs but their neck-if tackle done illegally or their writ legs of arms
I have broken all my fingers an krack 3 ribs. SA rugby is the hardes what you get go (boerkies) all the ower rugby is 4 sussies and nfl who plays with panding you guse are afreid
Rugby is just to dangerous, when a scrum collapses you can break your neck!
I have hurt myself so many times playing it its unreal
This should be number one because this is worst than football and cheerleading I think chearleading would be second
Rugby, truly the game played in heaven.
Even if it gets you there quicker than any other sport.
Scrum collapses = neck injuries, no one sees what goes on inside rucks, studded stomped hit. Brutal
nonstop football without pads
No safety just big hits
