    Remember it's the physically toughest sport in the world. Careers don't last long and usually end with life long physical impacts. Players cannot be blamed for wanting to secure their futures. And OS comps, like in Europe & Japan ect are far less taxing physically.

    Which is why the salary cap needs to be drastically increased.
    How can the European comps be less taxing physically when they play about twice as many games a season as we do here?

    They are still humans like everyone else and the game still lasts 80 minutes plus stoppages!
    Players in Europe definitely have a harder season; yes their games are not played at such a high tempo but there is as many tackles and many more games to play in more often than not tougher conditions.

    And I agree with fulvio that this mentality is definitely one of the factors that somewhat make us lose against them even before setting foot on the ground.

    Sorry, I should have used the sarcasm emoticon rather than the word duuh.

    My mistake
