Angillion- not sure about the origins of the comparison, but I seem to remember football games are really quite old, the violence bit is self observed.


Football games are probably prehistoric. I tried to find the origin once, out of curiosity, and it seems to be too old to be known. Football goes back at least as far as widespread extant records in England. Those records are mostly legal or financial...and some of the earliest records of football are it being outlawed in England due to the excessive violence. Medieval England, home of war, combat for sport and a wide variety of blood sports, outlawed football for being too violent. It was a different type of football, but it shows that the association goes way back.

They're not maori warriors. they're sportsmen. I don't believe they should be allowed to do it. Can you imagine England coming out prancing around, pretending to slay a dragon (as per St George), The French coming out and then running away? or Scotland coming out with stupid painted blue faces shouting freedom?! no. Because it's a sport. (Yes, I know the examples were stupid, but you get the idea).


The examples are stupid only because they're mostly wrong. The Scots didn't paint themselves blue (that was the Picts and at least some ancient Britons before the Roman period - the Scots weren't even on this island at that time). The French fought everyone, usually repeatedly, so if you're looking at old traditions they'd be armed and running at people, not away.

That's not the team. Those are the cheerleaders.

We should respond with our traditional English war dance: The Hairy Moon

Years ago I lived not too far from Twickenham. after a big game the carnage was amazing- those boys would drink pubs dry - never saw any aggro. football though- millwall scared the crap out of me. But the same ever since- Rugby just doesn't seem to get so aggy...

That's the Rugby League team, a good Haka but too bad they can't beat Australia more than once every 10 times. The All Blacks do it better and win much more.

madduck, everyone's seen the European guys. They can't keep their clothes on {luckily}. Ya know, I look just exactly like that naked as well. Stop laughing, I do!

This is the response from the Irish rugby team to the New Zealand All-Blacks Haka:

@IAYFM: Nope NZ are not the only team that do it. Samoa, Tonga, I believe even Nigeria has done one (i could be wrong on that). England has stood arm in arm and sung Swing low Sweet chariot as a counter challenge to the haka and Australia has sung Waltzing matilda. The South africans used to do a Zulu challenge and have discussed bringing it back. Any team can put forward a challenge if they want its just that most teams don't.

Oh and as for prancing around like pansies, I invite you to stand face to face to a haka and tell them the same thing

And Sethdog is correct, this is not the All Blacks, their Haka can be foundhere

@ IAYFM: Okay, well, I get where you're coming from. Thanks for the explanation.

@ Blackcatseye: I am happy you are amused. I live for your amusement. If you were not amused, I think I would fling myself off a cliff, a la a Disney lemming.

@Squrlz4Sale: Because, as I said, they're they only team that are afforded this poncy show. They're not maori warriors. they're sportsmen. I don't believe they should be allowed to do it. Can you imagine England coming out prancing around, pretending to slay a dragon (as per St George), The French coming out and then running away? or Scotland coming out with stupid painted blue faces shouting freedom?! no.

All Kiwis know Haka. They teach it in schools . It's a sacred ritual.

It's a war call. Done with face paint and all the feather/spear regalia suppose to strike terror in the heart of the other side.
Funny they use it for 'sport'
Love watching these boys.

Still amuses me how ignorant Americans are of ancient traditions outside their own borders. Or is it just American IABers? Haka is OLD news, they do it for every single match.

No McThstlpnts, only the All Blacks. Still- a proper game. I like Rugby, a game for men. All aggression on the field, after the game- everyone just gets arseholed and has fun. Or cries. Violence is so rare I cannot actually recall any ever having happened.


I've just had a look for the origin of the famous comparison of rugby and football (rugby is a thug's game played by gentlemen and football is a gentleman's game played by thugs). I couldn't find it, which is a bit strange since it can't be very old (rugby is only about 150 years old).

As soon as I saw the Maori invoked I immediately thought this was gonna involve mooning in some way. (Thank Goddess it didn't). Did anybody else have that same sense of foreboding??

Pity they lost hahaha.. But they are not the All Blacks, they are the Kiwis.. It is rugby league not rugby union which are actually two completely different games.. Kinda like comparing netball to basketball or tennis to badminton.
