The IOC didn't let baseball and softball stay, no way they ever approve American Football.

No:

1. Too few countries play it

2. It takes way too long.

3. Players are throwing a fit over the NFL schedule. What would they do with 5+ games over two weeks?


This about covers it.

No way they can fit a football tournament into 2 weeks. Heck, the NFL playoffs only has 12 teams and it takes 4 weeks (not counting the break between Championship week and the SB) to play out.
