re: Will American football ever make it in the Olympics?(Posted by MetArl15 on 2/23/14 at 1:41 pm to tigerclaw10)
Will likely never happen, but if it did and the IOC and the NFL allowed the American squad to use NFL players, it would be the most uneven competition in modern sports history. Would be closer to GTech vs Cumberland* than the '92 dream team.
*for those unaware, in the early 20th century, GTech beat Cumberland College like 222-0. Neither team recorded an official first down as GTech scored on nearly every play from scrimmage and always within the first 4 downs of each possession.
