Compared with rugby where if you wear one of those padded hat things people think you're a bit soft.
A couple of years ago I got asked about rugby on a forum with predominantly US members. The US crowd were convinced that because shorts are worn, rugby was a summer game.

Naturally, I and a couple of other Brits enlightened them. One big difference is that neither the UK nor the other rugby playing countries suffer the sub-zero temperatures of a North American winter, and it strikes me as I write that that is probably why the Canadians aren't famous for rugby.
