    we would dominate the world! Which Packers would be on it.... Rodgers and Woodson are guarantees in my eyes.

    Of course we would dominate the world......we are the only country that plays this sport....hence the term, "American Football."

    American style football is a long ways from becoming an Olympic sport. For starters, in order to be able to be an Olympic sport, it needs to be something both sexes can participate in. While I'm not saying women can't play football (I saw them play Hockey and they could all kick my ***), football isn't popular enough world wide to create a women's league also.

    Next, the only way you'd be able to sell it would be if active NFL players weren't on the roster. The roster would have to maybe include practice squad, but mostly it would be made up of college guys, or even people who have been cut over the years. Possibly even UFL or Arena League players, though they still might be too good.

    And yes, we would absolutely dominate, same as we'd get owned if Cricket were an Olympic sport.

    Actually Cricket might be an Olympic sport in 2020, but then again like you said it is WAY more popular around the world then American Football. Also, I would say 90% of American Football player's are from the US so there is no way other countries can have teams. The IOC might be a big thorn in American Football too since most of the IOC members are from EU.

    Maybe in 2120 we might see it in the Olmpics!
