    With padding, permanent damage CAN be caused.
    without padding they probably wouldn't hit as hard as they do.

    You could possibly apply a similar argument to pro boxing. Without 10oz gloves would you have fights going 12 rounds and fighters receiving the same amount of blows to the head from the larger, padded equipment ?

    without the same type of 'padding' the sports arguably adjust to a different style of play/competiton, and so rules would probably have to change aswell.

    In american football people often lead in with the head = broken neck if no padding. The padding is there because they hit harder. Rugby is still a tougher game overall, plus its much more exciting as it flows (no pauses while they sub the entire team).

    Baseball is the single most boring sport I have ever watched.

    I like baseball for the statistics! I am a maths geek!

    I am actually trying to work out a formula for if players are doping, as there averages go down as the season progresses, compared to those that don't whose average stays roughly the same.

    haha makes sense. I went to watch a game in Oakland (oakland somebodies versus somebody else...it was a big game apparently). There was a guy in front of us filling in a sheet with all the details of the game, and working out batting averages and all the rest. You ever been to Oakland nephilim? :P
