Here is something, the Olympics have all other sports, either in the Winter or fall, except for American Football. Almost every country has it form of a football league. Like there is one in Europe, there is one in Canada, and other countries too. The NFL and College is watched all over the world as well, so why can't American Football be an Olympic Sport.

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 2/22/2002 7:15:00 PM  From Authorid: 11348    Wellll.... I wouldn't watch it. I hate football...  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:19:00 PM  From Authorid: 13952    well of course it should.........who wants to
watch the little frilly boys on skates...
Date: 2/22/2002 7:21:00 PM  From Authorid: 8184    I think it would be pretty neat.  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:27:00 PM  From Authorid: 26573    Not enough countries would be able to put teams together.  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 47162    I don't know if their is enough time in Olympics to have a full fledged tournament. It takes a week to recover from a game. and all those countries. Would be a mess.  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:33:00 PM  From Authorid: 28623    They don't have olympic cricket, so they deffenitly shouln't have american football.  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:33:00 PM  From Authorid: 40543    can you imagine what would happen if that happend? The US would crush every team. If we put together an allstar team like Hockey does then no one would beat us  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:37:00 PM  From Authorid: 6358    I don't think it can. American football rules are different than every other countries rules, so there is no true "right" way to play it. It would be hard to conform to one set of rules.  
Date: 2/22/2002 7:39:00 PM  From Authorid: 6358    Canadian football has only 3 downs instead of four, their field is a different length than ours, they have different rules all around, as many other country's rules differ.  
Date: 2/22/2002 8:15:00 PM  From Authorid: 16538    And plus in football you need good chemestry or its real hard for the team but i would love to see a nfl in the olympics.  
Date: 2/22/2002 8:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 43025    That's a good point....i've never thought of that before. I agree it should be in the olympics. ~dreamsicle~  
Date: 2/22/2002 8:47:00 PM  From Authorid: 21867    Pffft! American Footy is for girls who can't handle playing Rugby League! Take all them ridiculous pads and helmets off...what...afraid of a little pain? Peace,  
Date: 2/22/2002 8:52:00 PM  From Authorid: 37354    Agent Smith is right, I would love to see one of them 330 lb tackles stay on the field for a 90 minute match. Hugo
Date: 2/22/2002 9:46:00 PM  From Authorid: 46266    I agree with Agent Smith and Hugo. Besides, simply the name "American" Football will prevent it from becoming an Opympic sport, because the Olympics is playing down national pride more and more.  
Date: 2/22/2002 10:01:00 PM  From Authorid: 13952    rugby.....an english game i believe for namby-
Date: 2/23/2002 6:01:00 AM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 36967    You guys made good points, It is difficult to recover from a football, it takes a week.
Date: 2/23/2002 8:05:00 AM  From Authorid: 37354    American football, the average play lasts 10 seconds, there are 30 seconds between plays. This means 15 minutes of action in a 60 minute game. A player only plays offense or defense. They are actually doing something for only 7 1/2 minutes a game, yet you see some teams wear down in the 4th quarter. What physically fit athletes! Hugo
Date: 2/25/2002 8:02:00 AM  From Authorid: 46266    And it takes a week to recover. muaahahhahhaha!!!
