Stop judging me. And others for that matter.

IMO the scrum has had its day, like boxing, and bull fighting, which apparently is still going on.


Do you realise how many people follow Boxing?
I can not stand it, but it probably had 10 times the following of rugby.


Just because it's apparently popular, which it probably isn't, just people get sucked in by the hype of events like Mayweather/Paquiao, anyway, just because it's popular doesn't make it right, and shouldn't mean it should not be banned.


Of course it is not popular. No one watches it, so there is no money in it. I do not even know the names of the fighters.

Just googled it an NBT said this


The final pay-per-view numbers for Saturday’s boxing match are still undetermined, but early reports indicate that Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was the most-watched PPV event of all time. According to Deadline, HBO and Showtime are reporting over 3 million PPV buys, which easily breaks the record set in 2007 when Mayweather vs. Oscar De La Hoya generated 2.5 million buys.

The fight also topped the Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings for the week with 5.8 million event-related tweets in the U.S., which were seen by 11.6 million people. It was the most profitable fight in history by a wide margin, as Mayweather and Pacquiao are expected to split a total purse of approximately $300 million

as I said, people who have never bn near a boxing ring or boxing club get sucked into watching the "big" bouts, which usually turn out to be defensive, awful to watch contests.

Not many people outside Wales knew who Joe Calzaghe was until the Jeff Lacy bout.

Boxers are popular to their local people, but it's not a ''sport'' that brings people together from overseas.

it's a valid point Jim.

Hookers and props could play 13-a-side rugby union too, look at D Coles and Gethin Jenkins.
