I think that football should be an olympic event... Get 2 star Quarterbacks get some really good halfback, fullbacks, tight ends, wide receivers, tackles guards, centers, and a whole bunch of defense, and America would dominate.(We are practically the only ones who play it. Though I have heard of a Europian(Can't spell it, don't know why.) league.)

Then there would be more people getting hurt during the olympics.

Meh, Canada is in sixteenth, so I'm not interested. >_>

Wait till the winter Olympics and hockey gets into the picture. Everything else is minor.

No offense but what country besides Canada is real major on hockey?

US, mabye?

US only has like three good teams. The US team is probably half Red Wings.

I agree I love playing football so much lol but i guess it doesnt help that were the only ones who really play it.

The world doesn't play American Football. However, the world DOES play football (or in American-terms, soccer).

They're considering football (soccer) for the 2012 Olympics, along with cricket, golf and rugby. Hope they choose rugby, it's the only team sport GB is good at.

Soccer has been an Olympic sport since 1900.
