I love the NFL... Have for almost a decade.

But being kiwi I was brought up on Rugby and League.

This tackle from Hunts Samoan cousin Brian Lima was by far the best tackle I've ever seen...

It was a takedown in an MMA fight, it was obviously more wrestling than rugby or football or handegg or whatever. It was a decent takedown, but "thing of a immense beauty" is a large exaggeration. You'd see this same takedown used at literally any level of wrestling.
This.

But also this.

Sick.

Lots of power there. It would be hard for anyone to stop that.

I think if Americans didn't suck at Rugby, it would take over with the quickness. But you guys just don't produce the athletes for it.
The Olympic medal counts disagree with you.

We have consistently produced the best athletes in the world for a century.

I've stayed out of this horrid argument as I've read through because it's been pointless.

However, when you say something that dense you're asking to be told off.

It's just not a good sport.
Canada loves football
