Nope. I think he'd do pretty well. He's a very athletic guy, very strong ball runner. His major issue is injuries but he takes 20+ shots a game in an NRL game, in an NFL game he'd be lucky to take 10.
I think the game would suit him better

Also i love the NFL, i want to see as many australians over there as possible to raise it's profile in this country. And i hate watching that **** play for another club in the NRL, so it kills that bird with the same stone too

Depends where he played and what other attributes he had. I dont think Dugan is that slow. He'd definitely need to work on his explosion off the mark. If he did what Hayne did, and give himself a good period to get himself into NFL shape and specifically train for it, he could probably improve his speed

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

At least he'll have no problems anywhere in the States as he has talked a fair bit about how he lived in the Hood known as Tuggeranong as a child.

What you're suggested takes single minded dedication and rock solid commitment. Character traits somewhat lacking with Dugan.

Former Queensland Origin forward Carl Webb on 18 months probation for drunken rampage

Former Queensland Origin forward Carl Webb has been sentenced to 18 months probation for "terrifying neighbours" during a drunken rampage.

Webb, 33, appeared in the Cairns Magistrates Court charged with threatening violence, wilful damage and three counts of entering a dwelling with intent.

Police alleged that Webb threatened neighbours and jumped on the hood of a car in the Trinity Park suburb of Cairns where he lives. He was arrested shortly afterwards and spent some hours in the Cairns watch-house.
