    Anybody seen the Gods of Football naked rugby calendar from Australia? Is it better than the Dieux du Stade?

    That Gods of Sport one would be semi-decent if it wasn't so obvious that those 'battle-marks' (black shoe polish) weren't smeared so orderly across their bodies. I mean, who looks like THAT after a game?? icon_confused.gif

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, I've seen that obviously fake dirt thing before in other male pin-ups. I also don't care for the mean & threatening expressions that are common in these things, but just my personal taste, and these here aren't too bad.

    I much prefer to see seductive bedroom eyes, of a guy about to join me under the sheets, not the angry scowl of a thug planning to beat and rob me.

    Oh, I thought they'd just been working under the tractor in their underwear (to avoid ruining their good clothes) and accidentally drained some fluid on themselves. Done it a couple of times, but nobody put me on a calendar.

    "I also don't care for the mean & threatening expressions"


    That can happen with some of the guys - others are natural communicators with the camera and seem completely comfortable naked with the photographers and assistants ... in the videos for Dieux du Stade, where you watch the photo sessions, you see a lot of charm. And sexiness ... one of my faves is a scene with Regis Sigoire in the shower alone, and he seems clearly to be stroking himself ( his crotch is just below the frame) Here he is (on the left) with another guy, in the tub. (Those whirlpool shots are great!) Will see if I can find the other shot to post.

    These calendars are great fundraisers.

    My old club did one of these about three years ago. I did *not* want to see certain teammates naked! Oh well.

    The Seattle Quake does one too. It's good if you like bears.

    There is virtually no money in USA Rugby so these fundraisers help out a lot. Nearly every predominantly gay team does something to fund their Mark Bingham Memorial Cup trip every two years. Other stunts we used to do for cash were car washes in our kits, oil wrestling our rivals, oil wrestling drag queens (something I could not bring myself to do), bachelor auctions (more skin, more $$$), sell shots, sell desserts at gay bar steak night (rugby bakesale! hahaha), etc.

    As a side, do we just throw up any old post, even the rare sports post, under "All Things Gay" now? There is a Rugby forum kids. I know...nitpick nitpick.

    The Australian calender, great looking men aside, just looks a bit crap, as if they just lined everyone up in the studio and took more or less the same photo with the same low concept. What a waste! It looks like the French actually spent some time on theirs, and it shows.

    Hmm. I like a good rugger, but am not fascinated by the pictures you posted. Any real men in those calendars. These guys just look like models. icon_neutral.gif

    The style of photography may have something to do with it. Looks like HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging was used (particularly with the Aussie one). HDR gives a surreal, fantasy vibe to it all.

    looknrd, you have to see the videos. These real jocks icon_wink.gif stripped down, getting made up, some with quizzing raised eyebrows, some giggling, some trying hard not to look interested , some painfully uncomfortable. GREAT.

    I think the original is still the best, though I didn't like the 2008 edition as much as the previous ones shot by Francois Rousseau. Dievx du Stade is better - but that shouldn't diminish how sexy the Australians are.

    The hottest part is that they are all professional athletes - most of them straight and don't seem to give a shit if they have millions of gay admirers.

    Scotsman Sean Lamont in 2007's edition was the greatest of them all. So damn hot.

    Are these examples of the types of hot sexy cute guys that many here on RJ say are vapid, narcisistic, have ugly personalities, guaranteed to cheat on you and doomed to a life of lonliness and singeldom?

    Oh... I thought they'd just been changing a transmission in their underwear or something. I mean, who hasn't?
