It's an old playground game in the UK (it's banned now)

 

Basica rules are one person is it, he stands in the middle.

 

The others have to run from one side to the other without being "tagged" by the bulldog.

tagged  :amazed:  you mean flying kick in the face or being clotheslined to the ground :teethhappy:

 

the player tagged tackled to the ground also becomes a bulldog

no idea why it's banned, it never caused any harm :trollface:

You used any means necessary to take them down to the ground.

I memorably (at least memorably to me) broke my arm playing that at prep school.

 

In those days we didn't moan about such things, it was character-building.

British Bulldog was never a game of tag.

It was a game of violence. Broken bones, smashed teeth and bloody faces were commonplace.

 

It was brutal, it was awesome.

British Bulldog is an excellent way to prepare boys for the rigours of life................................. Well actually the rigours of life and death as a private soldier.

Nah. You're talking about rugger. I ever saw anyone with broken bones or smashed teeth from playing BB.

 

By the way, it is up to individual schools whether pupils are allowed to play BB. Some are allowed to. OTOH, in some schools, they must play "tag rugby". Urgh.

I'm not talking about rugger (which by the way is just another term for Rugby) I'm talking about British Bulldog, and if you've never broken a bone playing it, then you haven't played it right.
 

Poll winner is the Clay Pigeon Derp.

 

Details of the event will follow tomorrow.
